The Ground Round Grill & Bar, with its two-room concept, provides an atmosphere and menu that is inviting to families and fun for adults too. We offer a substantial broad-based menu with a high quality/good value relationship for our guests. In addition we are one of the few family oriented restaurants where adults can enjoy full liquor service with their meals. Our lounge is a casual alternative where adults can relax, meet friends, watch the game, and enjoy the same full service menu.

Good Food and Atmosphere

The Ground Round is one of the nicer places to eat in Tomah. The atmosphere is decent inside (like a TGIFs or similar). There is usually a wait on weekend evenings. The food is always good and the service is usually good as well. The price is about as you'd assume (around a TGIFs).

Went there for dinner, and drinks, and everything was great. Nice place to stop with family, getting together with friends, date night, or grabbing a drink after work. There dinner menu also big and has a nice variety to choose from.

Used to be a regular patron. Food has steadily declined. Service has also suffered and is underwhelming. Will need convincing to start going back.

We visited Tomah Ground Round for lunch New Year's Day and our waitress did an excellent job given the hand she was dealt. They appeared to be totally understaffed for lunch which made the service to be inadequate. The food was really nothing super spectacular, It was decent but nothing that really wowed any of us. Not really enough that... More

Everything on the menu has been good so far. And the menu is very diverse. This is a good place to go with a group of people who all feel like different types of food. Service has been slow but friendly every time I've been there.

It was recommended by the hotel front desk. I would say the decor and menu are the bright spots. I had a turkey sandwich and baked potato. The potato was over cooked and re warmed. The sandwich was okay, but nothing the brag about. The wait staff was attentive.

Ate here with a group of friends and colleagues while on business in the Tomah/Sparta area. Went on a Thursday night and the place was pretty busy. Staff was friendly, food was good and was your standard bar fare as well as burgers. Overall good experience.

I was there by myself. Great Burger and fries, good wine selection. Wait staff was excellent. Only would have loved to have the old time Ground Round...popcorn, peanuts, and the balloon maker wandering the restaurant. The good old days!

They have one of those menus that you could eat your way through. Many items that we wanted to order. The baked cod was a bit of a disappointment but the soft pretzel appetizer was fantastic. Very, very loud in the bar area seating.

Ground round was perfect for our family's sit-down meal while on vacation. Sit in the bar and get crazy good drink specials and free popcorn to keep the little ones happy. Staff was pleasant and restaurant was clean and welcoming. While GR has a whole section with healthy options, just go for the burger, its soooo worth it.
