We had a very pleasant dinner at this restaurant. Service was excellent. Decor is tasteful and casual. Bread and hummus was delicious. We loved the zucchini pancakes and blueberry yogurt soup. Tuna entree with risotto was tasty. Pork tenderloin was a little tough and overdone....Overall a nice experience.More

We celebrated 4 family birthdays ( including a 88 year old ) here tonight. We had a party of 12 accommodated with great service in the back room. This was the first restaurant night out in 2 years for some of our covid wary party....The food was excellent, and we enjoyed the privacy of the room. We were all comfortable and had a very special dinner!More

Found them on the internet. 30 minutes away & worth the trip. Cute, cozy, clean & friendly. Good service and good food. Upscale with nice white table cloths, but not stuffy. Byob was nice. Very pleasant evening..... thank you.

This place is divine! Such accommodating friendly staff and the food was perfection. I had the quiche of the day which was superb. The side salad, both fruit and green made for a hearty and delicious meal. They have a wonderful cappuccino.

Stopped here recently while traveling along NJ Turnpike. Restaurant was just a short ride from the exit.. Restaurant was tastefully decorated. Menu was interesting, and food was good and nicely presented. Server was attentive, checking in frequently enough.

OMG, ok foodies, wild fiddleheads availability has a very short window of opportunity… wild fiddleheads calamari style, Northern Exposure Pasta with spicy andouille sausage, wild fiddleheads, shrimp, Kiwi muscles, steeped in a broth of lemon, coconut milk, chicken stock, and bell peppers… Jamesburg, NJ, little...place I stumbled on during a local visit. Brian does a great job keeping this place running smoothly and takes extra care in assisting folks with mobility challenges when needed. Get those fiddleheads while you can.More

We have been going to Fiddleheads for dinner once a week since the pandemic. All safety precautions are followed. The food is so wonderful. I have been having the salmon and my husband the spicy shrimp. We feel as safe as when we are dining...at home. It is so refreshing to be able to get great food in a homey atmosphere. Come on out and feel almost normal!!!More

We went there with another couple to eat outdoors and enjoy the warm weather. We sat on the porch at the law office next store. The tomato soup was very good as was all the meals. The shrimp Louisiana, pork tenderloin, and zucchini cakes were...excellent. Definitely a must try when in the Burg.More

My mom and I went here for lunch. Normally they only have to go until 4 when they open the patio, but the gentleman said he would wait on us even though his staff wasn't in yet. Mom had the crab meat grilled cheese with...French fries and she said it was delicious. I had the chicken stir fry and the vegetables were all crisp and fresh and yummy. We both enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back maybe for dinner next time. Nice new find in Jamesburg!More

From the moment my party walked onto "Carl's Porch" (the Archer Law office next door has let Fiddleheads use their beautiful outdoor seating for outdoor dining) everything was absolutely exquisite. The Grab-N-Go menu that they have adapted for outdoor dining has a selection for everyone,...from Orange Brandied Salmon to a Grilled Ribeye and phenomenal Burger! In addition, we ordered two appetizers - their famous Bangin Shrimp which was spectacular, and their Crispy Fried Brussel Sprouts. Outdoor dining done right with great service and a smile behind each server's mask.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.
