I usually shy away from chains, but this Ground Round is across the street from a very nice Hampton Inn, and you can walk there, which is an advantage should you choose to consume a few adult beverages, of which they offer many. It's a spirited, busy place, and the food is nothing to complain about. The prices are also... More

We were on a motorcycle ride through Wisconsin and stayed the night in Tomah. This had been a rather long day and I had come down with a nasty head cold. Usually when on the bikes we avoid the chain restaurants and try to find somewhere local to go. This night we had decided to go to local pizza place... More

The Ground Round offers a nice dining an area and a great bar area. The menu had many items to meet the expectations of hungry travelers. We enjoyed salads, chicken breast, and pulled a pork sandwich. The wait staff provided friendly, comprehensive, and fast serves. The food was served hot and the water and tea glasses were always full.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn after an exhausting day at Cranfest. We went for dinner on a Friday night about 6:30 pm and were pleasantly surprised to get seated right away at the Ground Round. The menu offered a wide variety of items that would please anyone as well as a great fish fry. Although our waiter had... More

My friend and I recently stayed in Tomah for 2 days. Each night we ate at The Ground Round. We had friendly waitresses (Lori M) and great bartenders. Megan and Mollie the bartenders on Thursday night were efficient, friendly and sweet. Our food was great. We could enjoy a few drinks and top it off with good food. We had... More

Good handicapped parking. The host opened door for us to come and go. Waitress very good. Nice atmosphere. Good seating. We each had the steak burrito and a coke. My husband liked it. I thought the rice tasted like an out of a box mix and the seasoning in burrito was way to strong in cumin. The black beans in... More

Do not confuse this Ground Round with the same chain of Ground Rounds that used to be found in the lower Midwest (Missouri). This was by far my girlfriend's and I favorite restaurant in Tomah. Great variety of food on the menu! Very good wait staff! The spinach artichoke dip was excellent. Will definitely eat here again when visiting Tomah!

I visited here on a Sunday evening and it was pretty empty in the entire place around 7pm. I was sat and the server was good. I had a nice meal and the food was good and fresh, and the server as very friendly and attentive. I would recommend this place over McDonalds and the like, but not unless you... More

All our Ground Rounds in Chicago closed long ago, so this was worth the trip from the Dells. My rib eye steak gets great marks. The wife's salad was top notch. The bar area was very busy as was the entire restaurant. Stop here to eat if you can . It's right off I-94 and easy to find.

Description
The Ground Round Grill & Bar, with its two-room concept, provides an atmosphere and menu that is inviting to families and fun for adults too. We offer a substantial broad-based menu with a high quality/good value relationship for our guests. In addition we are one of the few family oriented restaurants where adults can enjoy full liquor service with their meals. Our lounge is a casual alternative where adults can relax, meet friends, watch the game, and enjoy the same full service menu.
