I've been a fan and regular customer of Geaghan's for years and supported their venture into beer brewing which has been a great success. However, I feel that they have let the brewing take over and don't care much about their food anymore. They used to have an awesome breakfast - one of the biggest reasons I went there and... More

The servers were fast... More

Geaghan's has evolved from a family restaurant and bar to a family restaurant and micro brewery. This is a family owned business with with an emphasis on great food at a reasonable price, wonderful micro brews, exceptional service and a fun atmosphere.

Loved the food and beer here! People were friendly, and even though they were busy we didn't wait longer than 15 minutes for a table and not very long at all for our food. The lobster roll was delicious as was the chicken melt sandwich (forget the name). Irish red ale was thirst quenching and smooth. Can't wait to come... More

The food was fantastic and the atmosphere was casual and friendly. The servers were right on the ball. We really enjoyed our visit. We will eat there again. It is very handy to the Residence Inn!

Eight family members met here for lunch and it was great!! Our table was ready, our server was FABULOUS! We were not rushed, drinks came quick, and our food was Delicious. We were there for 2 hours and did not feel we were keeping any one from not having out table. Great place in Bangor.

Always bustling local favorite with tons of craft beers and great comfort and pub food. Try the boneless wings with reserve sauce. You will never have better. Service fast and friendly. Go where the locals go.

They had their own beer on tap. They have bottle beers as well. Came in to check it out. They do sell food. Not sure how it is.
