Fiddler's Green is our number one favorite restaurant in Southwest Harbor. It's within walking distance of the inn where we always stay - that's a plus. Food is excellent. Make sure you try the lobster strozzapretti pasta. It's usually pretty full so be sure to make reservations. But even crowded the noise level is good. There is a screened in outdoor seating area as well as air conditioned inside dining. The wait staff is more than courteous. Looking forward to going there again in August 2014.

Yippee! They are open and have added lots of gluten free options. I counted 18 GF and 6 GF optional items on the menu. And ciders in bottle and on tap.

I had Poblano Chile Relleno - oven roasted and packed with Cotija cheese with chile romesco, black eyed peas and seared garnet yam. Fantastic!

My lovely wife had the gluten free Eggplant Lasagna, with almond/pecan basil pesto, peppers, onions, fresh tomato, spinach, mushrooms, chevre & mozzarella cheeses. Yummy!

The chef/owner told us he did an elimination diet this winter and learned he had some food intolerances. So lots of new recipes!

I have been here a few times over the last year. The staff are easy to get along with, the food its self reminded me of a place in Ireland. Went in twice over the St Paddys day celebrations and was good to taste some proper creamy Guinness away from the Emerald isles. All in all it hit the spot

Very disappointed with the food and the atmosphere. Off the main area in town and needed to drive from our hotel. Just not anywhere near the quality as we found at the in town restaurants.

My wife and I toured New England for the two weeks September 23rd to 7th October 2013 to view the fall foliage. We travelled from Boston up to Bar Harbor, across to the White Mountains, down through Vermont, the Adirondacks and onto the Berkshire Hills. We selected our accommodation and eating places from Trip Adviser Reviews. We have reviewed each of the hotels, motels and bed and breakfast places that we stayed in and also many of the places we ate and drank in along the way. If you would like to view our reviews for the rest of the places on this trip click on my screen name on the left.
We ate at the Fiddlers Green Restaurant the evening of the 25th September.. I had spicy ribs for a starter followed by the 18 hour cooked pork. My wife had smoked mussels with mushrooms for a starter, followed by a creamy pasta with lobster The service and the food were excellent. The portions were just about right for British appetites and we both felt replete. We did make a mistake in asking for a cup of tea. As is usual in the USA, were given a pot of hot water and then had to put the tea bags in. We thought that as the meal and service was so good that we would get a proper cup of tea, but sadly no. We loved the Fiddlers Green and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the area.
Good Points. Excellent Service and food.
Negative Points. They do not know how to make a proper cup of tea.
