I??ve been going to this bar for a few years now and besides all of the great beers on tap, I thoroughly enjoy the food. There is an AWESOME Lunch Special for $9 during the week that includes soup/salad and a select entre. The salad is awesome because of the dressing and the Blackened Chicken Sandwich has become a favorite of mine. There is a Chipotle like Mayo on the sandwich that gives it a kick. The fries are always crispy and crunchy. There is also a deal for brunch on the weekends- $10/$12 for an entre that includes choice of beer/bloody mary or mimosa. This place gets busy on Friday and Saturday nights but like any bar in NYC that goes without saying. Looking to try something different? Give this place a try.

Pros: Great Beer on Tap, Happy Hour, Lunch/Brunch Deals.

Cons: This place gets packed on the weekends.

I celebrated my birthday here this past weekend. It was perfect for my friends and family who had attended. The bartenders were friendly as well as the management. They set aside a place for me and my friends to sit and enjoy drinks. We stayed out late and enjoyed every moment of the party. The place wasnt pretentious or to crowded. I highly recommend fiddlesticks for your next birthday celebration.

Great food and nice pub environment. Great place to meet up and hang out for a few drinks. Nice location and not too known to the tourist-y crowd, so you can have a nice NYC pub experience!

This is one of my favorite places to meet someone, as it's comfy and convenient. It's location is a great mid point and place to start off your evening. I suggest a few happy hour pints and the best chicken wings I've EVER had.

As a resident of the W Village I have visited Fiddlesticks for the occasional late lunch during the week. It is a no frills place where i can catch up on football (Soccer to you i'm sure) and have a pint. I get to chat to an English bartender which makes me feel at home, and I enjoy decent food at a fair price, especially if I make the lunch special! The weekends are a totally different affair - hordes of kids come to dance and get drunk and who knows what else! not my thing but hey, I guess i'm getting old.

its a great place for cheap drinks during happy hours and i love the assortment of candy given out in the restrooms but it can become so crowded here that you can't even more on weekends

NO, we were not hungover...so our tastebuds were in check, and we loved the food. Burger, Fish and Chips w and Shepherd's pie were all grea...plus, 2 free drinks with each brunch entree. Our bill was $35 for 6 alcoholic beverages (1 champagne/wine concction, 3 bloody marys...delicious...and 2 beers), and three meals. We all cleaned our plates. Can't beat that! Atmosphere was great, old, cozy...much like the bars we visited in Ireland. I bet it's a fun place to go out to at night....

I had the best time at this Irish Bar and restaurant with a group of people I brought for drinks. We ate authentic delicious irish cuisine served by the most friendliest and (very good looking staff I must say) who gave us really great service for how busy it was. We ended up staying all night having a great time. We met the owner who was so nice to introduce herself to us and actually sat with us for a little while asking us were we were from. I recommend dining outside to people watch. The music and the bartenders (3 words HOT HOT HOT!) were awesome and the bar decor itself really well put together with imported Irish moldings, pictures and decor. You can tell the owners know what they had in mind and instore for their patrons. When you go to a bar that has everything like this does you know they did it right. We definetly will be coming back to Fiddlesticks and MOST definetly can't wait to check out and dine at her new spot coming soon!!

I was just at Fiddlesticks this past Friday, after work, and had the best time! The bartender was reason alone to go!
I just have to say that I spent all my money just to watch this cute bartender work all night.
This is not just some small NYC bar to squeeze into, there is plently of room to drink, play pool, catch a smoke on the outside cafe...and obviously, flirt with the bartenders!
Definite recommendation!

My friends and I watched the World Cup games at this authentic Irish pub and had the best time! The beer selection is vast, the food is great & the staff could not have been more friendly. The whole atmosphere was very welcoming and fun. I have since been back several times and each time was better than the last. Definitely a great pace to recommend to your friends if you just want to hangout, eat good pub food & be among fun people. I send all my out-of-town friends there & they love it! Plus, you can't beat the Monday night football deals!

Fiddlesticks is pretty great for people-watching and bumping into. The pub pretty large with a decent amount of space. However, it gets packed on the weekends with a mostly collegiate, recently post-collegiate crowd looking for some beers and fun. Overall, a great place to be if you're looking for some simple fun.

Last saturday afternoon my friend a I met for brunch. I was surpised at what a deal their brunch special was. I order a fantastic burger and had an option of two toppings. I also had an option of two drinks (bloodymary, mimosa, beer, screwdriver and I think house wine). Service was good and staff was friendly! I'm think of booking my next party there.

Pros: Inexpensive, Friendly Staff, Good food

I've been going for years after finding it on a pub crawl night. Honestly, it's nearly always fun to hang. Bouncers and bathroom attendant only on weekends are a necessary evil. The food can be hit or miss on occasion but always palatable. Ive never sent anything back but others have and theyre always happy to make it right. Some of the wait staff arent keen on service but they get dragged over the coals so anyone with some sympathy can understand someone having a bad day. The bar staff are always warm and friendly, but dont challenge them to a drinking contest unless you have very deep pockets and a very high alcohol tolerance. It can get quite ugly (for foolishly over-zealous patrons you know who you are)! ;-) Lastly, if you look young, bring ID!!!

I was pretty impressed with the interior and clientele. Large place and very friendly staff makes this place a nice alternative to the bars in the area. They have a big outside area and serve food too, the burgers are terrific and a $3 happy hour you can't beat. I will def. be back!

We just went last night after work and were very disappointed. Our waitress at first was very sweet and even came back to let me know she accidently poured the wrong beer for me but most importantly it wasn't that cold. We both had fish and chips and it was nothing more than an oversized ball of greasy batter over sub-par mushy fish.We had to finally find another waitress and ask for our check and the one that originally started to serve us managed to totally ignore us. We won't go back for sure!

We love Fiddlesticks. Good beers, and an authentic Irish atmosphere and decent wines by the glass. Its a mad-house on the weekend but that's par for the course and great if you're in the mood for it. Extremely friendly bar staff, excellent food and fun music make it the place we like to start and/or end an evening out. These guys know how to run a NY Irish bar (and believe me I've been to more than a few). Check out the ladies behind the bar as well!

I love the fact that the bartender looked at my ID for about 10 minutes, held up the line and repeatedly asked me if I was of age (I'm 24). Finally when he gave it back and I walked in he proceeded to try to give me crap about copping an attitude.
So besides the fact that the bartender is pissed because of the roids costing so much and he only makes 7 a hour....it was less than adequate.

My friends have been raving about Fiddlesticks for weeks, and I finally made my way down there last weekend, I have never had so much fun in life. The crowd was fun, the music was incredible the bar is huge but it is really easy to meet people. If you are looking for a fun night downtown don't miss it.

Fiddlesticks is the first place I think of when going out with a group of people. The drinks aren't too expensive the crowd isn't too pretentious and there is always a great varity of music to dance to, whether it be rap or Paul Simon (usually playing back to back). One of my favorite spots in NY, everyone should experience the fiddle.

We've always had good experiences at Fiddlesticks. They've been accomodating of large parties, the beer selection is good, and the atmosphere always seems lively. Last week, however, we were seated at a table that was essentially level with our knees, our (not very busy) waitress was extraordinarily inattentive, and the Shepherds Pie was basically a mix between instant mashed potatos and Spaghetti-O's. Disgusting. The Southwestern Salad and steak sandwich got thumbs up, though. I'd recommend, but unless you want to deal with a Hoboken vibe, clear out by 10 pm on Saturdays.

My favorite neighborhood meet spot has morphed into a little less crowded and a little older clone of many bars in the the village!! Still, it is an undeniably fun night most times, a solid choice when you want to go out with friends, not pay through the roof prices or dress up.

Great Irish bar without the pretentiousness of most NY bars. Good atmosphere, music (though a bit loud for this type of bar), drinks and food. The crowd gets a bit young as the night moves on, so choose what fits you best. A great place to catch up with friends over a pint.

while fiddlesticks won't promise a trendy bar it will promise strong drinks for about 5 bucks. Nice big place....move to the back there is more room and some couches up above. As for females, some nites there are, other's there aren't.....best of luck.
