Good Food Great Service

While waiting on check-in at the nearby Days Inn, I walked to the nearest restaurant in sight. I'm glad it was the Ground Round. The food was very good, but the service was excellent. My server didn't mind at all that I had to linger quite a while with my crossword puzzles and newspaper. She... read more

Always great service, clean, good atmosphere (they have a sports bar side and a nice restaurant side as well), prices are reasonable, specials usually every night, and convenient to all of the Bangor Airport hotels/motels. An easy drive from all of the motels. I don't drink beer but I have observed that they have a huge variety of beers. Quite... More

We were staying next door at the motel. It was late, having driven for about nine hours. Wanted something close by. I have eaten at Ground Round before at other locations and have found them a typical, but reliable chain restaurant. Maybe it was an off night in the kitchen. My french onion soup was cold, not just cool, and... More

Sports bar with huge TVs on one side, family restaurant on the other. Great food no matter where you sit.

We just eat at the Ground Round, as we used have one in my home town, and liked the food. Tonight we had Brooke as a server, her service and attitude was very good. I had Fajitas and they were very good and plentiful. My wife had the South West Fiesta Chicken Salad and it was also large and tasty.... More

Year after year this place has been churning out high quality food and drink. There are burgers, Italian and Mexican, seafood, almost anything you can think of. I am particularly fond of the Mexican style dishes, but I have not had a bad meal here, ever.

The Ground Round has an area that caters to families and food the kids will eat as well as great menu for mom and dad. They also have a bar area on the other end that provides the same great food and a sports bar atmosphere.

As long time residents of Bangor, Maine my wife and I have had many meals at the Ground Round. The Ground Round consistently provides fun delicious food at a very affordable price. The food isn't fancy but it tasty and the atmosphere is family friendly. If you want good food and friendly service the Ground Round is your place.

We found this place on our second trip to Maine. We loved it so much, we came back two days later for another meal. I wish we had one in Virginia!

I have traveled several times from New Brunswick, Canada, to Bangor and I always include as part of my trip a meal at a wonderful bar and restaurant called the "Ground Round." The Ground Round has two main eating areas: a sports bar section and a pleasing fashioned dining area. I really don't like the name as it sounds like... More
