Seasons restaurant celebrates fifth anniversary 

BANGOR – If you did not spend a Friday or Saturday night eating twice-baked potato skins and drinking ‘DownUnder Thunder’ at Seasons Restaurant, where have you been for the past five years?

Seven years after Miller’s Restaurant closed, Seasons Restaurant opened in 2012. The restaurant and lounge opened with five different owners. General manager John Hafford explained, “It was a little daunting when we first opened.”

Today, Seasons is one of the largest restaurants in Bangor with an array of sectors. The restaurant offers casual to finer dining, banqueting, a sports bar, a night club and catering.

“We offer quite a bit of everything,” said Hafford.

Seasons’ different divisions makes it appealing. If you feel like eating a quiet meal, you can do that in the dining room. If you feel like grabbing a brew and watching the Patriots win, you can do it at the sports bar. If you feel like having a family reunion, Seasons has space for you in one of their banquet rooms. If you feel like singing karaoke, Friday night is “Maximum Karaoke with Dingo” at the Seasons DownUnder Club. The options are endless.

Season’s options bring crowds to the restaurant but the atmosphere keeps them coming back, according to Hafford.

“We have a lot of regulars and it’s really good to see familiar faces,” he said.

It’s understandable why Seasons has repeat customers, with delicious menu choices ranging from chicken marsala to Acadian poutine to crabmeat rolls. With so many food options, how does it all taste exceptional? Hafford explained, “We serve fresh meals that are made from scratch.”

On top of all that, for the week of Oct. 30 – Nov. 5 Seasons Restaurant will celebrate its fifth anniversary by giving gifts to customers.

“The giveaways reflect some of the owners,” Hafford said. “One of our owners is a fisherman, so we’re giving away lobster packages, two of other owners are part of the associated grocery network, so we’re giving away steak packages, another owner runs Quality Jewelers, so we’ll be doing jewelry giveaways and we’re also giving out TVs, t-shirts and hats for the whole week.”

Seasons is giving gifts as a way to give back to the community.

“The owners really love the area and are proud to be here,” said Hafford. “The anniversary party is a way for the owners to say thank you very much to the community and we hope we see everyone again in the future.”

And what’s next? What does Seasons Restaurant plan to do in the next five years? It’s impossible to know for sure, but it seems that there may be changes and additions.

“We have some thoughts,” Hafford said. “We have looked at doing more outside seating and possible rooftop seating. I keep urging them to get a new restaurant that’s maybe a little smaller. We have a lot of different ideas in the thought pool.”

So what are you waiting for? There are plenty of reasons for Seasons. Grab a great meal and enter for a chance to win some great prizes. The restaurant is open 11 a.m. to midnight all week long. For more information about the fifth anniversary celebration, visit Seasons online at
