We thoroughly enjoy our meal and service at Fiddler’s. The food is quite authentic and very good. The service is excellent and fun. The casual Irish entertainment is quite reminiscent of pubs in Ireland. Love this place.

We lunched today with our adult children and had a wonderful pub lunch. Kate took good care of us and was very helpful with a special request. The food was very good pun fare. I especially enjoyed the ham and brie sandwich.

The shepherd's pie is excellent, especially on a chilly day! Live music, great service, and the decor are also a plus. Go earlier to get a good seat, and enjoy!

Cool place to visit. Neat pictures and whatever. Food is unique - unless you are Irish. Share a table with a stranger, share your handle with a friend. Service isn't great. I wouldn't get the Molly Malone again.

Paul and Lindsay( and others) always take great of us when we sit at the bar. It is a welcoming place, even to the opposing team's fans. Great Irish pub food. Great service and always a good meal. Can't wait to go back!
