We were very disappointed with this visit to a highly recommended local restaurant. We had chicken wings (a signature item) and they were awful; tasteless and appeared to be deep fried. Also had a Tuna Melt which also was tasteless and 'soggy'; Very disappointed as there were several other restaurant choices in the area.

We had a wonderful time except for a chicken burger that didn't take just right. They replaced it with something else.

I have been coming here for a long time. Whenever someone visits me in Bangor I always bring them here. This place has the best wings I have ever eaten in my life. The staff is fun, friendly and energetic and the food is amazing.

Geaghan's Pub gives you that feeling of being "down at your local." The atmosphere is relaxed, the staff are friendly, the service is speedy, and the wings are the best! And then, there's Geaghan's craft brewery and its extensive list of quality, locally-brewed beers. A true gem tucked away in Bangor, Maine!

I was happy to find this place on Google, they had the highest ratings and the most amount of views. We are driving back from Canada and headed back to NJ. This place is pretty cool, it has 2 options. First is an awesome Irish Pub and the other is a nice restaurant that is family friendly. I ordered the... More

Close to the casino, good food, good environment! We've been twice. We sat out on the patio once and inside once and both experiences were pleasant. Get the wings!!

Especially for beer lovers. The other ones I recommend are Paddy Murphy's and best of all: Nocturnem.

We were there on a Friday evening and the place was packed at 7PM. Nice Irish Pub style atmosphere. Nice variety of food and drinks. My son is a student at U Maine and recommended that we 'had to try' the boneless wings and they were amazing. Sandwiches and burgers were great. The Dublin Donkey drink is tasty and packs... More

The food pretty good. The guy serving knew nothing about service. It was like he was trying, but thought he was super human and that their craft beer was the best. In fairness it was okay but left thinking we wouldn't be going back. Unless you're staying at this (budget) hotel and it's raining or you're on a tight time... More
