Food OK and on theatre nights service is apt to be a bit slow. Friendly staff and great bar - Serves Locally brewed real ales etc.

It has an upscale, yet relaxed atmosphere. The perfect place to eat before you go to a play at the Barter Theatre. Try the Riesling wine, it's very good! My favorite meal is the crab cakes!

Had Saturday brunch, food and service were both great. A very relaxing meal and quite enough to have meaningful conversation.

I am always weary about hype - of which this place has a lot. My expectations were high only to be let down by the average atmosphere, food, and service. The lobster fritters, sauce and all, were cold. I ordered the filet of beef medium, but it was served to me medium-well. The crackers with the artisan cheeses were stale.... More

We had dinner at Sister's this past Saturday night and had the most amazing experience! We were greeted and seated immediately, after receiving a warm welcome from the valet staff. Our server was Lily, who made the entire dining experience so much more than just "dinner". She was so friendly and knowledgeable of the menu - she definitely made us... More

Last weekend, we drove to Abingdon to join family in celebrating my in-laws' 50th wedding anniversary. 50 years ago, they enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon dinner there and wanted all of us to return to that same spot for this special Golden Anniversary celebration. First, I have to remark about the building itself. The Martha Washington Inn is absolutely beautiful. Between... More

What I liked best was simply the food. It was great. The Sunday brunch buffet is renowned. There is also a bar with quality cocktails.

The Martha is a great hotel and very historic. We ate in the dining room and the food, service and ambience were excellent. We would highly recommend the Martha for your dining pleasure!

Food and service are good - but not worth the price. Several other restaurants in Abingdon serve better food at a much more reasonable price. You eat here to eat at 'The Martha' and it is good, but just not worth the cost to me.
