Who would have thought

As a regular to the area I never paid much attention to the place because its next to the casino and I assumed it was just attracting the same crowd. A friend talked me into meeting her for dinner one night and boy was I surprised. Its a great local hang out and what a great atmosphere. The food... read more

Delicious pub fare, excellent craft beer, and wonderful servers. Love that wine and cocktails are also available. Always a friendly crowd there. Highly recommend!

Have been driving by this place at off hours and have never been able to get in. Stopped a local police officer one morning looking for a place to eat and he said that it is a GREAT place to eat, so it MUST be good...and it was!!! This is an eclectically decorated Irish pub restaurant and crowded with the... More

Geaghans is a watering hole for the local drunks. Place smells like old booze. Very drab and outdated decor. And then there's the breakfast. Subpar cooking, mediocre portions, and Keneen or whatever the waitress name was has the personality of a rattle snake. I am sorry that I wasted my time and money.

Service was excellent! Felt very welcome and the wait staff was very accommodating. Their home brewed beers were all fantastic and worth sampling; go check them out! Unfortunately I was so disappointed with the food that I ended up re-ordering my meal twice (three meals) and still couldn't find something worth eating. Caveat: I did not sample their wings, which... More

Restaurant is soso...bar is better. Could be updated some. Good for families as well (restaurant). Worth s top. Now I do not consider ANY restaurant in Bangor as spectacular...they all need some...

My husband and I recently wanted fish, and since our favorite seafood place recently closed, we decided to give Geaghan's a try. We each got 2 very small pieces of fish, and it was served with their hand cut fries, which were limp, soggy and luke warm. Never again!!

Everyone in the area knows that Geaghan's has the best Wings, but everything on the menu is outstanding. Waitresses are terrific as well.

We came here for breakfast with our family, and had such a good experience that we came back for dinner a few days later. The breakfast food was fresh, well cooked and generous. The dinner menu is sandwich-heavy - it's a brew-pub that does comfort food - but the food is well prepared, the portions generous and the options numerous,... More

Food was bland and beer lacked an excitment. Have frequented many breweries in Ca and NY. Was disappointed with the beer and the flavor of the food. Beer lacked a body with flavor!
