Awkward dining as a date. We sat next to another couple on a date at the same table had to share food with them without being able to converse amongst ourselves

My husband and I live in the home of one of the most famous Basque restaurants in the country, and as enjoyable as that restaurant is, we much prefer the Martin. We schedule our trips west so that we can stop here for dinner. We've even been known to drive to Winnemucca just for dinner here, it's that good. Absolutely... More

I was told about this place back in Sept. But never later there, my mistake. While on a trip back from Idaho with a couple of friends we wanted to stop for lunch. I mentiond the Martin and and said let's try it. The menu had a large selection and we all picked the Prime Rib sandwich for lunch. Exelent!... More

The secret to this restaurant is to hit the door at about 5:30 PM. The hall will not be packed and you will get lots of attention. For the price, the food is wonderful. We shared a meal and still could not finish all of the food & the free bottle of wine that comes free with the diner.out the... More

I was driving my son from Portland, Oregon to Denver. And quick route would have been to stick to the interstate. Instead, I wound my way southeast into Winnemucca just to give my son a taste of one of my favorite restaurants. The Martin Hotel is an old Basque restaurant, and it is a quintessential western experience - right up... More

We eat here a few times each year and each time come away filled with comfort food the Basque way! The latest dish that was Ohhh soo good was a Hominy/Chorizo side dish. I've never liked Hominy but this dish I'll eat regularly. The soup was one of the best Chicken Noodle I've ever had, the salad is always a... More

While touring on my motorcycle I wanted to stop at a Basque family style place. Found this spot and sat down at a table with others. Great way to travel and meet others. LOTS of food and great conversation.

Simply put, it was way too much food. Even after running long distance beforehand. Being a picky eater: I prefer "undressed" salads (despite other reviews, the salad dressing is pretty sweet for a vinaigrette); one of the sides was beef tongue in gravy - not for this reviewer. The lamb shank was really good. We arrived late, so most diners... More
