What I will say is if your in town just for one day or night make fiddleheads your choice. There are some good restaurants in Bangor, but if you have just one day than give them a try and you will be back for many more visits. Small but big in Choice of meals!!!! The staff and chefs are fantastic.... More

My wife Paula and I have had several meals at Bangor’s Fiddlehead restaurant in the past and I’ve been remiss in not reviewing them and giving them the kudos that they deserve. Laura is the epitome of a great hostess and the Crabbies Ginger Beer she recommended last night was a delight. The miracles that Melissa turns out in that... More

Food was not nearly as good as I had been told. Small portions, smug waitstaff, high prices. Dining area was so cold I wore my coat through meal. Filthy restroom.

Excellent food... Excellent service... And excellent drinks! Pricey, but well worth it. I recommend getting more than one starter per person - these are often better than the main courses

This place is fantastic. The food is prepared by a chef who is also one of the owners. The vibe is relaxed with specials that rotate regularly and an awesome wine list.

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!
