Ever wonder how Governor's got its name? Well, here's the story! In 1960, Leith and Donna Wadleigh opened a small ice cream stand they called Creemee's. The ice cream was great, but even the best ice cream couldn't bring people out during long Maine winters. So, the Wadleighs decided to open a full-service restaurant they could keep open year-round. The new restaurant served the best burgers in town and a soon-to-be-famous strawberry pie. But it needed a new name. The Wadleighs thought and thought, but nothing seemed quite right. Then one day, Leith realized that the perfect name had been on the tip of his tongue all along. "Hi ya, Governor" he'd say as he greeted customers every day. Why not name the restaurant in honor of everyone who came in for a bite to eat? So, they did, and eating at Governor's Restaurant was on its way to becoming a Maine tradition. Today, you can find a Governor's Restaurant and Bakery in six locations throughout Maine, still serving good wholesome food and yummy desserts at prices your family can afford. Come in and try one of Gov's favorites or our dessert of the month. From appetizers and sandwiches to salads, soups, and succulent seafood to burgers and dinners with all the fixin's ? you'll find something for everyone at Governor's. See our lunch & dinner menu for all kinds of delicious options. And don't forget dessert and breakfast all day! Come to Governor's in Waterville, South Portland, and Lewiston and you'll find attractive banquet rooms and attentive, professional staff who'll make sure everything runs smoothly. Whether you want something simple like coffee and pastries or a tantalizing buffet for your gathering, we'll make it happen! A great family restaurant with incredible food at incredible prices. Eat in or take out, you will be amazed by our menu. We specialize in homemade desserts including pies, cakes baked fresh daily. Three locations in central and eastern maine make it easy for you to find out about the Governor's difference.
