The menu choices all look so awesome that I always have a problem deciding what to get, but once I do, I am never disappointed. My wife and I go there just about every time when we are in Bangor, and it is our favorite place to eat. Not only is the food great, but the portions and prices are... More

Went for lunch on 2/20/2017, we used to go here all the time for lunch or dinner. It definitely is not the restaurant it once was. We both ordered salads, the "crispy, fresh salad greens" were anything but! I had to pick out the rotting iceberg lettuce. It's the basic iceberg salad mix like in the grocery store. The crispy...

My husband ordered a draft beer and was almost immediately sick. As a physician, he thinks that the beer lines were not clean. In fact, he has now developed an allergy to beer and can't drink it any more. Stay away from the draft beer here. We don't want others to get sick.

The restaurant itself is dated but the service and food were both good. I will say it was very annoying that the waitress kept referring to us as "guys". The hostess did as well. They need to be trained in how to address customers.

Wednesday night was all you can eat ribs night. Good food at reasonable prices. Excellent service. Hadn't been to a Ground Round in years. You don't get peanuts or movies anymore, but it was a good place.

We chose the Ground Round because it was fairly close to the Ramada Inn. We were cordially greeted by a server, shown our seat quickly and handed a basket of freshly popped popcorn. We requested a few more minutes to select our meal and the order was served quickly and pleasantly. Our portions were just right and the server checked... More
