We visit every summer. Great tap beers, great music, great ice cream, and great space. You go back in time when you're at the Purple Fiddle.

I had been going to the Fiddle for years, but, it starting getting tired. Stopped back and was greeted to a more friendly and happier vibe. The food was good and plentiful. Glad that the Fiddle is back.

Great place for live music and food. The staff was very friendly. Large selection of beers to choose from. If the weather is nice, they have a great outdoor space to enjoy.
