“Incredible food - casual gourmet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

I've traveled tons for business and eaten in MANY restaurants, even abroad. Had big corporate budget, so ate at very nice places. This meal was, by far, the best meal I've ever had! My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary last fall and had a nice table by the window overlooking the harbor.

First - our server was obviously very in-tune with us and very skilled - she made it just obvious that she was checking in and available, but did not interrupt our conversation. We knew if we needed anything, she was right there. She also suggested some incredible wine that paired perfectly with our food.

The atmosphere was casual gourmet. We saw people in shorts to people very dressed up and everyone looked very comfortable and happy. Background music was not too loud - just right.

Now the food... appetizer was the chef's plate of seafood and the crab cakes. Entree was lobster stromboli for each of us. Simply amazing. And desert was fantastic! We had such a great time we stayed waayy late and upset the babysitter...

“Romantic and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2010

My husband and I were surprised during our honeymoon with a gift certificate to Fiddler's Green. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were given a table with a great view of the harbor. Both the hostess and server were warm and welcoming. For an appetizer, my husband had oysters, which he loved. I had the crab cakes, which were ok, I prefer mine to have chunks of crab and be looser packed. We both had the "Ocean and Cow" which is a filet stuffed with lobster. Delicious!!! For dessert I had white chocolate ice cream with chocolate sauce. The ice cream was ok, the flavor was nice, the texture was just a bit off. Overall, I would say this is a must for anyone looking for a romantic night out, with great food, great service and a wonderful view.

“Nice Place -- Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2009

This is a great choice in Southwest Harbor. If you want a good view, call for a reservation at one of the tables that overlooks the harbor. Without a reservation, you may have to wait, but the bar is comfortable. The staff is gracious and the food is good. The steak is great.
