Good choice when you want really good food prepared with fresh ingredients in a nice "semi-fine" dining environment. Very relaxing. Good service. Well prepared and well plated food! There are food choices incorporating fish chicken beef, etc. to satisfy most tastes. You will leave here in a contented mood. Prices are fair and it's a BYOB.

The restaurant itself is cute. It's located in a strip of stores on a main road through the center of town. Parking is on street, but seemed plentiful with a short walk. The store front was decorated for the holidays and simplistic, as was the remainder of the decor. This is not a place to go for decor. The host... More

Fiddleheads Reastaurant is a small, intimate restaurant in Jamesburg, NJ . The food was very good and the service excellent. I had the fillet mignon which was very soft and tasty. My husband had the Jambalya which he said, although it was good, there was a little too much liquid at the bottom of the dish. BYOB is a definite... More

We found Fiddleheads on a trip to New York City when we stayed in the area and the hotel clerk suggested we try it. We have been back many, many times and each visit has been a delight. If we leave home in Gaithersburg, MD after work, we want to break up the trip. Our routine on those trips has... More

If you are in this area of NJ your choices are limited but this is definitely a good choice. The atmosphere is friendly and the service is good. Entrees are good overall. We had the fish dishes which were prepared well.

I'm glad to discover such a nice restaurant in my own neighborhood. The food is very fresh, well prepared and well presented. The wait staff are all pleasant and the chef really likes to know how you are enjoying your dinner. He came out of the kitchen and greeted everyone while we were having dinner.

We enjoyed our stay at this restaurant. The limited number of dishes on the menu was a good sign. Restaurants with star quality also offer less choice, because the meals are composed with fresh ingredients. It might take some time before the meals reaches your table, but the waiting is wortwhile. One remark, I had the steak Diane (medium), but... More

Had an Angus burger which was delicious as well as the bruschetta. It is a BYOB but the food was delicious and accommodated the 7 others that were with me.
