Visited this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and Yelp reviews. We were so pleased to find something other than box-store eateries and casinos in this 'wide place in the road' on the way to Salt Lake City and beyond. We would never have discovered this place without such online help. As others have said: LOTS of food. No need for... More

We went there not really knowing what to expect yet expecting good Basque food from having read reviews. We enjoyed meeting strangers at the table, the atmosphere, and the friendly family-style service (which included really bad wine). However, the food was mediocre at best and very over-priced. The place does a great business; apparently the restaurant has many fans. We... More

We stopped by here for lunch during a long day trip, and we were glad we did. It's not too far from the Interstate and we wanted to try a Basque meal during our trip out West. Unfortunately, the lunch menu doesn't have as many Basque offerings, but we made do. I requested that they add cheese to my BLT... More

We lived in Winnemucca 12 years ago. When we lived there, we did not enjoy the basque food experience, due to huge portions and lack of taste. BUT we had not gone to the Martin Hotel because we were so turned off by other restaurants at that time. On our 1st visit back this year, with the suggestions of friends,... More

When we saw that there was a Basque restaurant in Winnemucca we just had to try it and were not disappointed - but rather pleasantly surprised! First floor of the old Martin Hotel - a bit cranky but the right atmosphere !. Wait staff both helpful and friendly - We almost had the place to ourselves --It seems that most... More

Love sitting with new people. I thought it was expensive, way to much food, but food was tasty. The mushroom soup extra nice, steak tender and the ribs tasty.

This place is a hoot, serving copious portions of Basque food in an old "hotel" (which is now a restaurant and bar). (More Basques live in Nevada than any place in the world outside the Basque country of Spain and France). It's not elegant -- family style seating in an old barn of a room -- but our waitress was...

We stopped at the Martin Hotel for lunch, since one of us had stopped there many years ago and been delighted. This time, too, the meal proved very tasty. Basque food is always a treat, and the Martin does a fine job in preparing and presenting it. We will definitely return -- hopefully soon.

We had dinner at the Martin Hotel, Winnemucca. The lamb shank was bland and fat. Split pea soup and pinto beans were the hi light of the meal. Simple ingredients make up the meal, at absurd prices. We ordered two cups of black coffee after the meal. Very small cups, no refills, added another $5 to our $69 bill. We... More

Go with an empty stomach and remember to pace yourself. Forget the bread because you've got soup (yum cheesy potato), salad with their famous dressing which includes dirt, veggie plate, mashed potatoes, french tries and a chicken dish. Then you get what you ordered. The red wine and water kept coming. Book ahead - we had to wait an hour... More
