The food was excellent! I've never had minestrone that good! The cook also has a great personality, which made dinner twice as enjoyable!

PawPaw is an amazing person and seems to take good care of all his customers. The Minestrone is divine!

First of all, let me say that my husband and I have eaten at the Martin Hotel at least 20 times over the past decades. In fact, we have made a point of getting as far as Winnemucca when traveling just so we could eat here. That won't be our plan anymore. We ate there this past Saturday with another... More

Love trying different foods, and this was very good and lots of fun. They do serve lots of food, but we both had the Basque choices and then shared an entree (he wanted liver, I wanted sweetbreads, we settled on a very good pork)

The Martin Hotel is another in a series of legendary Northern Nevada restaurants that specializes in Basque cuisine. This means communal seating, large family size bowls of all the side dishes and in the case of this restaurant a carafe of red wine included with your meal. We ordered two of their house specialties, the shrimp scampi and the calves... More

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
