Its always strange were one will find a colony of basque restaurants. The last town I visited where there were several was in Bakersfield, CA . Basque restaurants were generally down home cooked, reasonably priced, good value for the quantity of food received. The Martin Hotel was the most expensive I've been, in the $25-$35 range, this was the best... More

Supper on Monday night between Christmas and new year. Original old world charm throughout. It was clear that our waitress knew how and where to engage and set a pleasant satisfying dining experience, for upon our being seated , she presented a carafe of house burgundy. This most embracing welcome to The Martin set the melody. Service was superior, timely... More

I went in alone and was seated at a table for eight. Soon there were seven other people from two families seated with me and we had dinner together. No one eats alone here, and I enjoyed the conversation with the locals at my table. This is an old-school Basque restaurant. Western Nevada has a strong Basque influence from sheepherders... More

A Basque restaurant, but the menu is varied, including Basque specialties, as well as, steak, fish and pasta options. The tables are family style which turned out to be delightful. We were joined by a very interesting couple from New Mexico and we shared a wonderful meal and conversation. The restaurant is an old railroad hotel built in 1898, A... More

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
