Sat at the bar and watched the bartender make some wonderful craft cocktails. Food was excellent, duck spring rolls, ginger fried chicken and waffle, watermelon salad, burger and pierogi. A must visit in Bangor.

I travel to Bangor quite often and always make it a priority to eat here for dinner. Whether I can from a meeting or the gym they treat me with such kindness and always try to find room for me at the bar. The place has such good energy. The staff there are so wonderful. And the food menu is fresh, healthy, local, and always delicious. I enjoy coming in and seeing what may have changed on the menu. The drink menu and cocktails are excellent well and they certainly know their wine and food pairings. It can be a bit pricey, but it's week worth it.

If you're looking for a great meal, with great staff in a welcoming environment please check out this restaurant and support local business!

The Fiddlehead is a very special restaurant and reason alone to make the trip to Bangor. The food is utterly delicious and sourced from their own or other local farms. The tomato tart and terrine appetizers were subtle yet flavorful. We shared the grilled romaine salad and it was amazing. Our entrees were the chicken breast and lamb shops - both perfectly cooked and delicious, as were the accompaniments. We took doggie bags home in order to save room for desserts - cherry tart for one, homemade strawberry ice cream for the other; both yummy.
The servers were attentive but we never felt rushed. Make a reservation and ask for a table by the window. It's an interesting and small space with an even smaller kitchen, which is amazing considering the wonders they create there.

When I saw their menu I knew they had heart. When I ate their food, I knew they had SOUL.
Exquisite and the service was outstanding. We will be back. Soon.

These people know the hospitality business! Smart decor. Friendly, professional service. Fabulous food locally sourced and beautifully prepared. My childhood summers in Maine meant lobsters in the yard on a picnic table - the only way to eat lobster, until now! Fiddlehead's lobster roll has taken a great idea and made it a masterpiece. The slaw and roasted potatoes tie for best supporting taste sensations. Beware all you lobster rolls out there...the bar has been set extremely high! Oh yeah, the first course and salad course will also knock your sox off!
