My husband and I took our 2 young grandchildren to governor's for the breakfast buffet. We sat for quite some time without any acknowledgement from any one .After 2 other couples were waited on after us we got up and left. Thank you governors for that great customer service!!!

Went to Govenors for breakfast, the Buffett specifically, due to we were in a hurry. When we arrived they was a small wait, at least that is what they told us. 25 minutes later we were seated and they got us coffee. We told them we just wanted the Buffett. We went up to the buffett and literally everything is... More

Whenever we're in Bangor, I never miss an opportunity to eat at this Governor's location. The menu is huge with many options to choose from. Our server was new but very personable and prompt and the food was hot and tasty as always. The dessert options are to die for, especially is you have a sweet tooth, like me. Another... More

We went for lunch but my mom decided a banana split sounded better. So she ordered one and was surprised at the size! Great price, too! My sister and I had our lunch and then helped mom finish hers and we still didn't finish it! It was sooo good, though!

We arrived at a busy time but were seated quickly. Our waiter was amazing. He knew the menu and we received everything exactly as it was ordered. I had the haddock and it was fresh and cooked perfectly. I wanted a backed potato with sour cream. The only issue for me was that they gave me little butter packets and... More

Thanks for the feedback! Glad you had a good experience. We do use fresh ground beef, and I will investigate why your husband thought it tasted not fresh. More

What we have here is classic low-budget Maine diner food. Big fat burgers, frozen French fries from Sysco, fried liver and onions, meatloaf, all kinds of breaded and fried seafood, daily specials. This sort of food does not appeal to everyone. But, if you own a pair of Dickies pants and a flannel shirt, or two, this is probably the... More
