Entertaining and vibrant place. Great staff and mixture of locals and tourists. Live music was a bonus. Fair priced drinks and food. The bookcase doorwaybis quite aomething too! We look forward to returning.

Fitzy's is your typical Irish pub. Drinks are fine, live music is fine and decor is fine. Staff friendly. Night was fun.

Do not drink more than 5 beers because the guy at the door may tell you that you are too drunk to enter.. Good concerts and good atmosphere.

Stepped into an Irish Pub expecting happy friendly staff with atmosphere-it is an Irish Pub by name- but not by nature. Rude female bar staff. Seemed like we had disturbed her by ordering drinks. Plenty of better places to spend our money

We saw the sign for Guinness and popped in for a pint as well as a Kilkenny. Didn't open until 5:00 and there were folks waiting. You can sit at benches outside or high tables inside.

Bar is out dated. Toilets below average on scale of cleanliness and had to wonder if all the flys in the bar area were due to poor hygiene. Guinness was average. Service was ok, I would only return if others were closed. I would try others.

Reasonably priced pints, bands always playing and nearby where I was staying. This is a good pub and I would recommend to anyone in the Wanaka area to visit!

We decided to go to as many places as possible and compare the Seafood Chowders. We felt Fitzpatricks was close to the best and certainly gave the most generous serving.
