Most of the table went mexican but there were several Italian dishes that were tempting and I saw a few other tables eating them and I would go back again to try them. Service was great. Mexican food was tasty.

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon, as we were just driving by and decided to stop. Sign outside states it is Italian and Mexican food, but it is mostly Mexican. Not much for Italian choices. The service was good, and the food arrived quickly. The taste was decent, but nothing to scream about. The portion size was also good.

This was a nice little mexican/italian restaurant located near our hotel. The food was decent without being great. The people were friendly and helpful. The view was okay, you can get a window with ocean view by the location is removed so you dont get hit over the head with it.

I have put off writing this review but feel as if I should do it. Lunch with my husband resulted in major gastric upset for hours. Spoke to owner the next day and he essentially said that it was my fault as no one else who had dined there had called him. Will not go back. Too bad.

My husband and I came on a very busy Friday night, and split the steak fajitas. They were pretty good, but we were a little disappointed that they didn't come on a sizzling cast iron skillet. The waitresses were very overwhelmed, but did an awesome job of keeping a smile and making sure each table got what they needed. Most... More

Martin's is what I call an Ameri-Mex-Italian restaurant. He has an American foods menu, a Mexican foods menu, and an Italian foods menu. He even has a partial Jewish menu (lox, etc,). Everything on his menu is terrific. He makes one of the best enchilada sauces and chile verde I have ever tasted. He also makes great pizzas including a... More

We stayed at "On The Beach B&B" and walked down the street to Martin's for supper. Husband and I shared a medium pizza and enjoyed it very much, and it was a great value -- we both ate and had sodas for under $20! The service was top notch, very fast but not pushy and pizza was ready very quickly.... More

My wife and I stayed at the Seaside Motel. Martin's is across the street. The burritos are large and filled with your choice. We had one with shrimp and one with Carnitas. Both were excellent. Service was fast and friendly, but not rushed. We'd definitely eat there again.

Since a lot of places on Ocean Ave are closed Mon and Tue we ended up here. Thanks Martin for choosing to be open. They have a complete Mexican breakfast selection, as well American (menu flip side). The fresh fruit was in season, and the Machacas (eggs with beef) were awesome. Great value for what you get!
