Fiddler’s Hearth South Bend

While staying at the Oliver Inn we took the opportunity to walk the quick few blocks to Fiddler’s Hearth.  Daughter and I love to attend the Irish Music Festival in Muskegon Michigan so we were hoping for good reels and jigs!

I had asked before hand what the policy is for minors as each state has different laws when the establishment has an alcohol license.  I was assured that Daughter being in the place after 9pm would not be an issue and no one blinked an eye on our visit.

I had planned to arrive around 8:30 and get a little dessert before the band started.  But then I misplaced our room key and that panic ate up a bit our time before we walked over.  It was a few minutes past nine when we arrived and located some open seats.  (Its group tables and seating here so everyone is a new friend.) The band was already playing and a few were dancing up front.

We were quickly served and still able to order dessert.  I was not very hungry but wanted to try their Creme Brulee.  Unfortunately it was sold out already! Daughter had the Fighting Irishman Sundae and I went with Chocolate Oblivion.  I washed it down with a great cider while we enjoyed the band.

We stayed a little over an hour before deciding to beat the rain back to the inn.  Its a short quick walk but I would rather stay dry as I go.  We had a great time here and plan to be back again to try dinner.  They have live entertainment almost everyday as you can see here:
