Ground Round Grill and Bar History

Ground Round was founded in Freeport, Maine, in 1969 by Howard Johnson’s. The company is a casual restaurant chain that was very popular in the 1970’s and early 80’s for their children’s parties, which included silent movies and Bingo the Clown. Instead of candy, Bingo passed out peanuts and guests were encouraged to throw the shells on the floor and crunch them.

In early 2004, Ground Round filed for bankruptcy and abruptly closed almost all of their restaurant locations. The chain was quickly purchased by a group of franchise owners who then created Ground Round Independent Owners Cooperative, LLC.

The company currently has 30 locations in 13 states. The company states that since new owners took control, revenues at all locations have steadily increased by 4% or more each quarter.

I complained before about bad service and cold food. Said I would give ground round a few more times before boycotting you. Today my wife got warm coke slaw and it tasted bad. She pointed it out to the server and her response was very nasty “We make it fresh everyday”. No offer of something else and no apology. Good bye ground round. You lost not only my wife and I but both my daughter’s and anyone else I can convince not to go there. Johnson City NY store.

I worked for Ground Round located in Langhorne Pennsylvania. I have contacted the owner twice about my last paycheck and he has never sent it to me. I’ve even watched him refuse to give a last paycheck to a woman when she came there and he said she owed him money for an apron. Which she claimed she did not, so I am sure the same things is occurring to me here. I know I do not owe Ground Round any money, but I am owed my last paycheck.

Thank you for your concern,
You can reach me at
