This restaurant is conveniently located in the HGI lobby. Unfortunately, it closes at 9, which was a little early for us considering our travel schedule. Prices are average for hotel fare.

We stayed that the Hampton Inn across the street and wanted a quick dinner without having to drive all over town. Based on ratings and proximity we decided to give the grill a try. Fresh local seafood, a decent sized menu and a friendly staff. Food was good and the portions more than adequate.

We just stayed at Hilton Garden Inn for four nights and had dinner at The Great American Grill three nights. It was fantastic. Honestly, we both thought it was one of the best restaurants in Bangor. Great service (efficient, friendly, fun); thoughtful and reasonably priced wine list; freshly prepared, quality menu choices. The center cut sirloin is the best you'll... More

When staying at the Hilton Garden in Bangor it is always a treat to have breakfast at the Great American Grill. The chef prepared omelette is fabulous. The other home baked goodies are delicious. There is a lot of choice. You will not be disappointed. Please give this review a vote if you find it was helpful.

Kicked off my first trip to Maine by having a little lynch at this location due to the proximity of the airport. It was an amazing start and the best lunch if the trip with also included a stay in Bar Harbor. Recommended.

I had read the reviews and most were about the amazing breakfast which certainly lived up to the reviews but we also enjoyed a delicious dinner which the entire family enjoyed. Normally hotel restaurants are not that impressive and we had considered visiting a local franchise but we were so glad we went to the All American Grill. The staff... More

Great food. Fast. Plenty of options (and healthy options) for the whole family. Toast, muffins, pancakes, oatmeal, cereals, fresh fruits, yogurt (made in Maine), milk, juices, coffee...eggs made to order by a friendly chef who truly acted like he wanted to make something for you! We were quite surprised.

We had (1) Caesar salad with Salmon and (2) Caesar salad with chicken. We had to sit at booth in the bar area, but that's OK as the place was nearly empty.

The price and variety for the breakfast buffet are good, but the food disappointed. The OJ was reconstituted and/or watered down -- tasted like Tang. The scrambled eggs were lukewarm and the over easy eggs (made to order) had broken yolks; potatoes were soft and rather tasteless, and also should have been warmer. Most of the fruit was under-ripe and... More
