If you want to splurge, this restaurant has delicious food and great atmosphere. Pleasant wait staff and friendly owners. Try the steak.

Reservations are a must in this small restaurant. I was there on a slow night. I found the atmosphere to be very cozy. I had the special fish meal that evening and it was perfectly cooked. Menu options are not many but cover most of what you may want. I would go back but may chose to try a different... More

The Fiddlehead Restaurant is located in downtown Bangor. It is pretentious, but probably one of the best in town. The service is attentive - but a little "over the top". It is owned and operated by women - all of the staff - not a bad thing - just different. The restaurant is very busy - even on weekdays -... More

Our family drove to Bangor last weekend for the UMaine Open House, and my wife searched for an interesting restaurant. She found the Fiddlehead on TA -- and we called for a reservation. (Good idea; this place is popular, and we soon learned why!) My wife Nadine is an excellent cook and we have enjoyed great restaurants around the world.... More

We stop here every time we are in town from Florida. We love the location on Hammond St, and the menu never disappoints. It's a great place for couples, and the herbie hancock is our favorite drink. A little noisy when the place is full, but we love it. Make a reservation!

.....with interesting names and pairings. Atmosphere is nice..in an older building. It could benefit by some acoustical sound blocks.

Our dinner experience started with the reservation - we should have taken that as a sign. The male who answered the phone said 'no problem, we have plenty of space, let me get the hostess'....the hostess then came on the phone and said 'welllllllll......let me put you on hold and see what we can do'! A few mins later she... More

We did not have reservations for the evening but was told that we could either return in 2 hours or sit at the bar. We chose the bar and were not disappointed. Wonderful selection of very inventive cocktails. The food was exceptionally good also. Definitely worth a return visit, but as to not be disappointed, we will make reservation when... More
