We arrived in Bangor late in the evening so dining options were limited. The Fiddlehead staff made sure we were taken care of despite not having a reservation. The food was delicious with enough options to suit most diners. My husband and I both enjoyed...More

A great place to celebrate an event, entertain clients or guests or simply have a nice meal. A welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Really nice steaks and other items. I thought salad and side portions as well as dessert sizes were a bit smaller than expected...More

This was our 1st visit but not our last. Everything about our dinner was very enjoyable - our food was prepared perfectly, we had the chief's special, and would order whatever it might be on our next visit. Can't say enough good about the Fiddlehead.

Cozy, caring, casual, absolutely the nourishing food and atmosphere one needs at the end of a hectic day! The General Manager, Laura, and the Chef, Mel, are co-owners and everything is simply top cabin. I'm a vegetarian and have other dietary restrictions, and the kitchen...More

Sadly they are not open for lunch. Only dinner. They always have an options for vegetarians and can convert this based on dietary restriction. For a vegan lunch I recommend the Spoon and Fork that is very near by. Hope it... More
