About Fiddlehead Restaurant and Bar
Thank you for considering our restaurant and bar to satisfy your appetite. You are welcome here.
My name is Aaron O’Reilly and I’m the founder, proprietor, and your host at Fiddlehead. As an owner operated business, the quality of of our food, the cleanliness of our facilities and the friendliness of our staff are all vitally important to me.
After gaining invaluable experience working in and managing one of the finest restaurants in Northwest, Indiana for many years, Fiddlehead’s shingle and “Open For Business” signs were hung on Memorial Day 2015 giving me the opportunity to express my vision and creativity for a new kind of establishment to serve the patrons of Northwest Indiana and those visiting.

Gluten Free Entrees in Michigan City
Best Dining Experience in Michigan City
We arrived and were warmly greeted by the hostess and ushered to our table immediately. A busser arrived within 30 seconds and poured water for us and advised us that Amanda would be right with us and she was. She took our drink orders and because they were out of the vodka I ordered there was a bit of a hold up but another vodka was substituted and we got our drinks in a timely manner after that.
Amanda returned to take our food orders and when she came around for mine I asked her for a recommendation on the Spaghetti and Meatballs which I was surprised to see on the menu. Amanda heartily recommended the dish. While waiting for our entrees Nancy and I enjoyed a beet and goat cheese salad which was cold, fresh, crispy and very tasty. The entrees arrived a short time later and were served hot and tasty. We were very impressed.
To conclude, I’m usually a bit depressed and disappointed on visits to my hometown when it comes to dining out. This is the best dining experience I’ve had in Michigan City in a long, long time. As a guy who has been managing full service restaurants for 40 years I can be very critical and pretty jaded. The owner of this place seems to know what he’s doing. I’ll be back and recommend it to others.

Best Burger I've Ever Had
Nice beer selection. Good cocktails too. Great desserts too, we tried the key lime pie and another one (I forgot what).
They have pierogis as an appetizer! We didn’t try them but definitely want to. We saw another table eating the German pretzel and it looked delicious.
