LOVE this place!! – My friend gathered a bunch of people for his birthday and we were all set to go to China Club- they refused to honor what they sent him in a promotional e-mail and I've never seen my friend madder. We rushed him into the nearest bar without a cover to get a drink. What a stroke of luck that place was the Mean Fiddler!

We had an AMAZING time, drank a lot, danced on the bar (and dressy or not we had some pretty girls with us so we were asked to get back up again a few times), had car bombs and we barely remembered the earlier fiasco. We go back every year now- it's been 4 years. Sadly, we don't go back at other times but I always reccomend this place and would go back in an instant. there was one year where a private party blocked the bar and they didn't allow us to dance on it but we still had fun. I have never been downstairs though in all these years.

I credit the Mean Fiddler with saving my friends birthday and the evening for about 30 people - turned our frowns upside down! The crowd is cool and the bouncers are too- nothing too stuffy, too young- great people having a great time.

The Fiddler has it all! – Nice friendly bartendars where you always feel welcomed. Great happy hour and food that is delicious, especially the Sliders & Pot Pie. In the night dancing over takes bar.

Great for Fundraiser – So i had to raise alot of money in a short time for a race i am doing.I was in such a panic but a friend of mine put me on to the mean fiddler.From the get go the owner was so helpfull he helped me organize a strategy for prizes, games and drink specials.Everyone had a blast and we raised a pile of money.The Bartenders were so nice so thanks for all your help.Jenny G

MEAN FIDDLER ROCK OF AGES – We were in a rush for a show picked up our tickets at Theatre so we wanted something quick and easy.The lady at the box office instructed us to go the Angry Fiddler{for some reason thats what keeps sticking in head}.Like any other place thats being a bar for a long time it has that beer smell but you quickly get over that with $4 pints of guinness and $1 sliders.We had a nice bartender who knew we had little time and took good care.We ended up going back at intermission to avoid the toilet lines and have a few quick shots.Highly recommended for anyone for the show..

No Frills What You See Is What you Get – So this place is truly off the hook.From the outside its very deceving seems like just another old irish bar and even when you go in you are a little puzzled.They have club like after work party in there downstairs bar not our scene so continue on but when we saw $4 imports and $1 sliders we were sold.The waitress was cool and set us in the back where they had beer pong and we all threw back the years and preteneded we were back in college.They had Plasmas everywhere ya looked and even put on my beloved RED SOX which pleased me no end.The bartenders were all irish and cool so thats always a plus.

What a festive place! – We stopped in there on Saturday night, just to have a beer or 2. Ended up dancing all night to some great tunes. The staff was fantastic!!! Definitely recommend.

Great Place to Catch a Game – This Bar makes ya feel like a old New York Tavern.Its not the trendiest or coolest but it has a warm feel to it.The bartenders are cool make ya feel at home.We live directly across the street so we are going to say nice things.But honestly i would usually not step into a bar like this but where else in the Theatre district can you play beer pong with Pierce Brosnan which happened me last week.It had a drunken college vibe with people from jersey and long island but thats what makes it fun.

The Marines Salute you this is our Home Base – So this is our third year of doing a fleet week party at the fiddler.We originally choose this bar as it was a live music venue and we put on a show for our boys in uniform.We had over 200 Marines pack in the bar.I am a former active Marine i now work in corporate america but i like to give back as i remember when i was a broke marine.Anyway i just wanted to say thanks to everyone at the fiddler for there generosity and the warmth they give everyone in uniform.God Bless America
