Fiddleheads offers fine dining in the heart of Jamesburg, NJ - an eclectic menu of well-prepared dishes. We've eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Interesting artwork, reasonable prices and BYOB, too - make sure to make a reservation - it's a small place!

After tasting a "fiddleheads" salad up in New England...was excited to hear about Fiddleheads Restaurant offering a tribute to the green a few weekends back. The fried fiddleheads was delicious. This intimate BYOB was wonderful. We enjoyed every course of our dinner. Loved that the Chef came out to each table at the end of the night. Will definitely return.

The rating is based on a combination of poor greeting and food missing the mark. Let's start with the greeting. The host while sitting us said to take the bottle of water off the table and place it on the floor. Than asked if we brought wine being a byob. So you can bring wine but not water. Not a... More

Lovely restaurant in downtown Jamesburg, NJ. Good for dining with friends, family or a romantic date. The staff is super friendly and attentive. And the food is amazing. This visit, I had a flat bread vegetable lasagna, which was incredible. My companions raved about their meals, one had salmon, another had roast chicken. I need to go back to try... More

My first visit to Fiddleheads but definitely not the last. Six of us went there on a Saturday evening and we all had a fabulous dinner in what proved to be one of the nicest of venues. We could actually talk to each other without having to scream over other guests or loud music. And the food was excellent. I... More

In town on business, we decided on Fiddleheads for dinner. We got there around 5:45 pm & we were the only ones there. We were uncomfortable and wondering if all the good reviews were inaccurate. By 6 pm, though, the place had filled up with lots of locals--always a good sign. The food was as excellent as the service. Watch... More

My friend and I went to Fiddleheads to celebrate an anniversary. The people there are so nice and made us feel very welcome. Our dinners were excellent. The pork tenderloin was perfect as was the swordfish, We also had a terrific desert made by the chef. Great place and I would recommend it to anyone.

My extended family celebrated Mother's Day with an early dinner at Fiddleheads. The owner greeted us and showed us to our large table in the back of the restaurant. The service was pleasant and efficient. The food was universally delicious and my father was delighted with his peach-lemonade drink. The only drawback for us was the limited children's offerings on... More

After reading all the great reviews this restaurant was very disappointing. We had a 7 pm reservation on Mother's Day for 4 adults and 1 child. When we arrived we were seated at a nice round table in the back room. This was an out of the way table from the front loud tables. At that point we were never... More

Yes, come to Jamesburg for the food! Just had Mothersday Dinner here, which can test the kitchens and staff of the best places, Fiddleheads came thru with flying colors. Efficient courteous staff, the owner, Brian, greats you at the door! The meal was delicious from start to finish. The swordfish was amazing, save room for dessert too!
