Dearek is a genius with spice!

Fiddler's Green is a cross between a fine dining experience and an 28 seater in the Mission District of San Francisco. Derek blends the nuance of spice into the local findings. His squash bisque was so good, I ordered a quart to go. Balanced tastes and texture with just to right touch of heat to... read more

We found the best restaurants in/near Acadia park were in southwest harbor (see my review of Sips). We ate in the bar, which is warmer and cozier than the restaurant and porch especially if there is a big group dining, as there was the night we were there. Excellent super-fresh fish, but also meat dishes and desserts. Good wine list.... More

We had dinner there last night on the recommendation of a park ranger at Acadia National Park. Good call. The food is super fresh, locally sourced and not your usual New England chowdah and a bug (lobster). I had the house specialty, roast pork, which is cooked for 18 hours. It was super tender and flavorful, served with fall vegetables... More

We'd been recommended this restaurant and our party of four dined there a few days ago. We had been to a sensational local restaurant the night before and were disappointed with the service at Fiddlers Green, apart from the hostess who was very professional and lovely. The food was disappointing and served in a completely charmless way, tired décor too.... More

If you stay in Bar Harbor a visit here will get you over to the "quiet side" in a half hour and out of the crowds. We went at opening at 5:30 and walked right in as Fiddler's quickly filled up. Staff is friendly and efficient and the rooms are spacious with windows across two sides. I had whole lobster... More

First, Fiddlers' Green is not in bustling Bar Harbor, but Southwest Harbor, otherwise called "The Quietside". Love that! The very full parking lot was a clue that we were about to enjoy something special. And it was. We had a short wait for a table, but it was made pleasant by the warm, welcoming hostess. Once seated, we had a... More

We ate here on a number of occasions in July; every time was a great experience. This really is a lovely restaurant; lots of room between tables and a bright, attractive setting. The welcome and service is friendly, genuine and well informed. The food is excellent! The menu is varied and interesting and the food is full of flavour and... More

My husband and I had a lovely dinner at Fiddler's Green last week. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and the wine and made excellent suggestions. We especially appreciated that the menu had many gluten free offerings and several that could be made gluten free with slight modifications. Knowing that the chef and the wait staff understands and accommodates... More

We made a reservation on a Sunday night in August for my birthday (although we did not tell them the occasion). Upon arrival we were welcomed by a very cheery and inviting hostess whom looked up our reservation. She asked us our preference of seating, and my partner said, "whatever the birthday girl wants." The hostess walked us through different... More
