I travel to Bangor quite often and always make it a priority to eat here for dinner. Whether I can from a meeting or the gym they treat me with such kindness and always try to find room for me at the bar. The place has such good energy. The staff there are so wonderful. And the food menu is... More

The Fiddlehead is a very special restaurant and reason alone to make the trip to Bangor. The food is utterly delicious and sourced from their own or other local farms. The tomato tart and terrine appetizers were subtle yet flavorful. We shared the grilled romaine salad and it was amazing. Our entrees were the chicken breast and lamb shops -... More

When I saw their menu I knew they had heart. When I ate their food, I knew they had SOUL. Exquisite and the service was outstanding. We will be back. Soon. Lisa Gautreau Cap Pele, NB CANADA

These people know the hospitality business! Smart decor. Friendly, professional service. Fabulous food locally sourced and beautifully prepared. My childhood summers in Maine meant lobsters in the yard on a picnic table - the only way to eat lobster, until now! Fiddlehead's lobster roll has taken a great idea and made it a masterpiece. The slaw and roasted potatoes tie... More

Stopped in after a relaxing day in Bangor. No reservation but they squeezed us in happily. Very friendly staff, excellent drinks, lovely decor. The cornbread and molasses was a nice change, salad was delicious. The only negative was that the locally raised beef was not lean but tough and seemed to be cut wrong maybe. When asked about it the... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Fiddlehead Restaurant. Reservations are recommended as the restaurant is very popular and not too large. We were warmly greeted and immediately shown to our table.The atmosphere is casual with wood floors and brick walls. The restaurant is within a restored building which it shares with Massimo. The menu is varied and... More

I've enjoyed excellent food and service at Fiddlehead at least twice now, and would have gone more often, but they are small, and real good, and without a reservation, I've not been lucky all that often. Food is an eclectic mix of well prepared appetizers and entres, wines are thoughtfully chosen to match their foods and the servers are well... More

We had dined at The Fiddlehead a few times, but that was a while ago. Three of us went again recently and had a grand time. Cozy atmosphere in this thoughtfully renovated historic building in downtown Bangor. Limited seating at the dozen +/- tables or at the bar = reservations recommended. The menu offers an assortment of interesting dishes. Wine... More

Tonight's dinner was a birthday celebration for a very close friend. We were 4 women, of whom 3 had been previous Fiddlehead customers. I was the only one from out of state. From the beginning, we were treated shabbily. This trend continued and worsened over the next 2+ hours as we patiently waited for our meal to arrive, and culminated... More

My wife and I had not planned to dine here until I read the Bangor section of the latest Moon travel guide for Maine upon our arrival in Bangor mid Saturday afternoon (14 Jun 2014). We had been in Island Falls, Maine, for a few days and were returning to Bangor for an overnight stay before our flight back home... More
