No Fiddleheads, but still very good.

We had to overnight in Bangor waiting for our rental house near Acadia NP. We went downtown to Fiddlehead on the recommendation of my seatmate on the plane. He was spot on, other than we just missed the fiddlehead season by days. However, the service was delightful, the old building charming... read more

Found a treasure in Bangor this evening! We were greeted with a warm and welcoming smile and were seated at a great table inside the spectacular space which is the Fiddlehead. The dining room and bar is comfortable and I found it to have good energy, excellent light, awesome details (exposed brick walls, huge windows, candles, mason jars, wood bowls... More

The bartender opened with a perfectly balanced Manhattan and it went well from there. I ended up ordering stuff on the menu that was wildly out of character for me, but enjoyed it all; it was fresh, well prepared and well conceived. A fantastic find.

The food here is excellent and well presented. The dining room has exposed brick walls, soft light and arranged so that noise is not a problem. The owner/hostess is very friendly. In fact, I was racking my brain to figure out where I know this woman from since she seemed to know me so well. That's just her personality. Don't... More

We had dinner here and after being seated by the owner, we picked a few items from the menu which reads like a very "current" food experience. I had a hanger steak, it was warm almost cool. When it was returned, it was quite tough, not due to overcooking. We both had appetizers, one of which was 3 little strips... More

Located in downtown Bangor, the fiddlehead restaurant offers unique, truly delicious dinners at a moderate price. Gourmet burgers, salmon, chicken, and other world dishes are offered customized to your personal taste and done so I had a very moderate price. The staff is truly outstanding and will do anything to make your visit a truly memorable one. I would highly... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try The Fiddlehead during a recent visit to Bangor based on tripadvisor reviews. We were so happy that we did! First of all, the service is wonderful!! We were asked if it was our first visit as we walked in and were approached by no fewer than four staff people during our meal. The... More

This locally-owned restaurant and bar is my favorite restaurant in Bangor. The seasonally-changing menu offers food that is unique, fresh, and incredibly delicious. Desserts are difficult to resist, and the cocktails are made with fresh juices. Every staff person is extremely knowledgeable of the menu and their enthusiasm for the place and the food is evident. I always call ahead... More

I've eaten twice now at this fantastic little restaurant, and the food, service and ambience is worth the trip. The staff is excellent, the choices are far reaching, and the home made Ice Cream is a delightful way to end the meal. This is a must visit in Bangor!

Fiddlehead is one of my favorite downtown Bangor eateries. Featuring a reasonably varied menu, this restaurant offers nice wines, good service, and a wonderful eating experience right in Downtown Bangor. The staff was very welcoming when I brought my 10 year old to eat with me, and the environment offers a nice view of the courthouse and wonderful interior appointments... More
