Not just just great food for Winnemucca, but some of best food in No. Nevada!

I have been here twice now, and both were incredible experiences. First course was some of the tastiest chicken soup anywhere. Then this incredible salad that you top with very flavorful beans. Then the sides of mashed potatoes with all kinds of goodies in them, a bowl of cooked corn, and a side... read more

We were passing thru Winnamucca and after seeing reviews in TA decided to stop. It was a Tuesday night and the place was fairly busy, which to me is always a good sign. The restaurant is not big there are about six big tables that seat about 10 people each, so you will probably be sitting next to strangers, which... More

A little disappointed. We were in Winnemucca to see grand daughter wrestle. Not my first Basque restaurant as I live in Gardnerville Nevada and we have The JT Basque Restaurant. Which in my opinion is the best in the state. My older granddaughter had salmon, she said it was crispy around the edges, like hard and she could not eat... More

We arrived at the Martin Hotel not knowing what to expect from a Basque meal. It's an old hotel probably built in the early 1900''s. After a short wait, we were seated at a table with other people already eating their meals. The dining room is small, necessitating this kind of seating arrangement, and we didn't mind it at all....

Ate here the evening of the big HS state wrestling tournament that, for some weird reason, was held in this podunt little town. Was told that the Martin was 'the best in town'. The only thing that set it apart from a McDonald's was the prices - $40 for a steak that still had the whip marks on it from... More

I have eaten here many times and it has always been great, but last night was the worst steak I have ever had and the service was worse

The Martin is always tasty. I enjoy lunch there as it is fairly quiet and yummy food at a nice price.

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
