    Horrible food! Poor service! And one server had a MAGA hat on… I don’t think politics should be involved when dining out. Would never recommend. And the only reason we booked this restaurant was because it was on Open Table! Never again!

    We enjoyed our meal and were able to actually hear each other talk. The food was good. I will say the crab legs a little overcooked and food served lukewarm. However we all had a great time. There were four generations and everyone had a meal they enjoyed.

    The building is so quaint…I wish the inside was more in keeping with an updated historic feel instead of a dingy long John silver’s type of atmosphere. Maybe upgrade the elegance some. The waitstaff was great, however!

    Reservation hostess was friendly and accommodating, seating us as soon as possible. We watched her double as a server tending to a variety of needs and were impressed with her positive skills. Hopefully, management recognizes her value to Fiddler's.

    We showed up on time for our reservation and no one was at the hostess stand. We stood around for more than 10 min and not 1 employee spoke to us. There were a lot of employees walking past us the whole time. We left and went somewhere else to eat.

    I made reservations and we were seated right away. Unfortunately it went down hill from there…it took over 40 minutes to get our food from the time we ordered and then it came out cold. Although the appetizer came out fine earlier. The food was just ok, I had the fried shrimp and the shrimp po boy…average nothing great. The only high points were the waiter who was nice and the appetizer (crab claws).

    The food tasted okay, except it arrived lukewarm at best.. The service was horrible - waiting forever for the food to come out - perhaps that's why none of it was an appropriate presentation temperature. Would definitely not go back there.

    We went here on St. Patrick’s Day because it was one of the few restaurants that was taking reservations. I had made the reservation at least 1 month before. We were told by the host that they cannot honor the reservation and we should have never been able to make the reservation. We waiting around 20 min for a table. Food wasn’t great. It was a holiday so service was not the best. Would not recommend this restaurant.

    We made a 6:30 reservation through Open table and arrived 15 mins early. No one was at the hostess station. As we waited, two more parties arrived. The wait staff ignored us. I finally stopped a server and asked who was manning hostess station. We waited an additional 5 mins before the hostess, who hand been cleaning tables finally arrived and stated the restaurant does not take reservations and they did not have an outside table. This seemed odd because when w e first arrived the couple in front of us declined an outdoor seating. The restaurant did not appear to have a manager on staff and after being told there was no outdoor seating even though we had a confirmed reservation we left. I will not return to this restaurant. I should state we received 3 texts, 6:27, and two more at 8:37 our table was ready. Spent $200 across the street for a wonder dinner for two!

    Never received our food. The waiter or the kitchen lost our ticket. So, we sat there for an hour and half while the waiter kept telling us, "Your food will be right out. Your food will be out shortly. Y'alls should be next on the list." While we proceed to watch people that sat down after us get their food, eat, pay, and then leave. The thing is those tables didn't have a different waiter either. Nope, same one as ours and he never noticed. Just kept telling us to sit tight. Then after waiting for an hour and half the waiter then tells us they lost the ticket, and that he could put the order back in. Well, we paid for our drinks and appetizer, no discount for the inconvenience or anything, and picked up Jimmy John's on the way home instead. This was our first time eating at Fiddler's, and our experience was not pleasant in the slightest. The only up I can give them? Is their crab dip is really good. Sadly that's all I got to try.

    Food was not good - frozen fish/seafood, served close to its natural state. Sent the first attempt back and it was only marginally better the second time around. Dishes came at different times, wine came whenever. A waste of over $100.

    When we got there and got sat, we had to wait 20 min to get a server. It was not that busy and we still had to wait for service. Once we ordered drinks we had to wait another 15 for those. And the mixed drink was TERRIBLE. The food was average but the service was NOT good. Would not come again.
