Located in the heart of downtown Bangor, Maine, The Fiddlehead Restaurant takes a fresh, unique look at the concept of “fine dining”. Using only the most quality ingredients, we bring a little extra finesse to comfort-style dishes, interpreted from cuisine ranging from the Far East to Down East. Changing seasonally, each menu finds something for every taste and mood. We acquire much of our produce and meats locally, and what we source out-of-state implements items from New England-based farmers’ markets.
The full bar consists of house-made cocktails, created with fresh-squeezed juices and natural purees; each made-to-order with particular requests our specialty. The wine list offers a new concept for both the fledgling wine drinker, as well as the connoisseur, with a concentration on introducing different labels from less well known vintners and regions. Priced to intrigue, most of the list—both red and white—is offered by the glass to ensure that customers are comfortable trying wines which may be unfamiliar. We also take great care to provide an ample selection of non-alcoholic beverages, from bellinis to our signature cucumber-mint lemonade.
Our concept on dining is simple: provide a clean, comfortable atmosphere, with informed, capable, friendly service, and good food. That’s it. We are extremely accommodating to those with dietary restrictions, designing our menus and training our staff to make sure that every customer enjoys their dining experience to the utmost. Our bottom line is quality without pretense or price. The staff is genuine, the drinks innovative, and the food fresh and delicious. Whether it’s your first or fifteenth visit, we hope every person feels welcomed as one of the crowd.
