It was my first visit to Ground Round. Restaurant does not have booths, just tables. Complimentary popcorn was nice. Food and service was average.

Sometimes you find yourself in a restaurant where the over-riding question is "What is going on in the kitchen?" The Ground Round restaurant has been represented in this area for nearly 50 years and used to be well known for good burgers and good cheer. The loaded Bloody Mary with Absolut was the best part of our dinner. Otherwise, mid-afternoon... More

Met friends for lunch. Noticed that it was quite cold, about 20 degrees outside, they said there was something wrong with the furnace and that it easy being fixed. Not comfortable eating when you're cold. Our waitress was very good. Food was ok. I've had much better french onion soup and my friends order got mixed up. They did change... More

Stayed at the hotel next door, went for dinner, quite expensive for bar type food. We decided to split an appetizer platter with 2 side salads. Potato skins, mozzarella sticks, chicken tenders. With tax over 29 dollars. That's with ice water. Server had really no personality. Broom and dustpan leaning on hostess stand upon arrival. Not impressed!

This place is convenient to the AmericInn. You can walk across the parking lot. Typical bar food and décor, however the bartenders are top notch.

Stopped here a few times and have never been disappointed. Plenty of room and plenty of TV's for sports. Food and drinks are reasonable. One negative is we ordered the fajitas and they put a sauce on the meat and vegetables. Was not a fan of that.

We ordered the Grande Nachos for an appetizer, which they waaayyy overheated. The cheese was melted hard glue. We had to tear the chips apart. The Texas Terango salad was good and yes I would order again. Fajitas I would give a 7 out of 10. Yes, I would go back, but only if I had plenty of time to... More
