While vacationing in Southwest Harbor we enjoyed dinner at Fiddlers' Green. The service was very good, the pork that everyone raved about was very good but the chili rellenos were superb! Prices were on the high side.

We dined there twice during this visit, reservations the first night, the meal and service were excellent. Decided at the last minute to return the second night without a reservation and were remembered from the first night and accommodated with no problem . The menu was creative with many gluten free items and a good wine and beer list. Pleasant... More

While the service was good, I found the prices to be high for the food we received. The food was good but I didn't think it was worth such a high price tag. I left disappointed.

We really enjoyed this place and ended up going twice while visiting SWH, both times sitting in the bar area. Great service, very friendly, and clearly a favorite among locals, too. Casual dress is just fine, though with the fine dining atmosphere you may want to lean more toward your "nice casual" attire. We shared the lobster pasta dish and... More

We wanted to like this, we really did. Charming town, cottage and grounds. Lovely porch, lots of laughing diners, but....we should have known what was to come after an unusually long wait for our server after being seated. When we were finally asked what we wanted, another long absence with a drink order placed. And it wasn't just us; it... More

The food was alright. The menu was very creative with several gluten free and vegetarian options. It was very pricey. They also requested that we change our dinner reservations to 15 minutes earlier (despite a half empty restaurant at our requested time).

Unprepossessing from the outside, wonderful eclectic, creative dining inside. A real find. Good knowledgeable service. Lots of local fare but a notch above the routine.

We try to get to Fiddlers' Green each year we go to Mount Desert. Last year we missed, this year we made it. Even in late June they are not yet in full mode, being only open a few nights a week. But we managed to fit an open night into our schedule and theirs. The menu is much the... More

Food is excellent-we eat here every year when visiting MDI and are never disappointed. Everything from burgers to fresh seafood specials is delicious and they have many gluten-free options if you require such things. Wait staff, to a man, were personable and efficient. Wine list is great!

Fiddler's Green is our number one favorite restaurant in Southwest Harbor. It's within walking distance of the inn where we always stay - that's a plus. Food is excellent. Make sure you try the lobster strozzapretti pasta. It's usually pretty full so be sure to make reservations. But even crowded the noise level is good. There is a screened in... More
