Hadn't been at Fiddleheads in many years. Had an enjoyable dinner with three friends. The restaurant was nearly full despite a torrential rain. It was clearly worth the effort to get there. Staff was very nice.

Everything about Fiddleheads' is fantastic. The food, the service, the atmosphere: just fantastic. (Their take-out burgers on Wednesday are really good!) They know how to do fish! Lunches are excellent too. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I really enjoyed my gourmet cheeseburger for lunch. They had a good variety to choose from. This restaurant has good service and uses linen tablecloths and napkins. One of the best places to eat in New Jersey!

No need to go to New Orleans for Jambalaya or Louisiana Shrimp. Go to Jamesburg. Lock the front and back doors on these dishes. Garuntee. Table service is casual, slow dining at its best the way it should be. Always treated like royalty. Sign up...More

We like to say, "If you think you look good, we think you look good!" We don't mandate any specific attire, but some of our customers enjoy getting "dressed up" for dinner.
