Where to eat in Bangor / Orono, Maine?

I need a good restaurant for dinner in the Bangor/Orono/Old Town, Maine area. Can anyone offer a recommendation? Full bar and good wine list preferred! Thanks for the help!

    1. Massimo's, next door to Fiddlehead is also very good. Ate there twice this summer, happy both times.

          after trying to google Zilch restaurant, I figured out what you meant...

            Did you search for Zilch in Orano or Orono?

        2. Fiddlehead and Massimo's, ditto. For something more lowkey, with a small menu but an amazing bar, try Nocturnem Drafthaus. Zen is pretty good, nice bar, Asian fusion type place.
          Woodman's in Orono has a great bar and OK food. Other than that there's nothing really great in Orono or Old Town.

          1. If you have time in the morning, The Friar's Bake House is a very, very special place. My favorite Whoopie Pies.
