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

The Martin Hotel is a hangout for locals and a hotspot for visitors as well. Food is outstanding with course after course which varies. On the night we were there: Bread & butter, mushroom soup with an ample amount of garlic, salad, basque beans, corn, mashed potatoes, french fries, chick peas - all before the main course. We had a... More

Excellent food and we like the family style so we can talk with fellow travelers. Plus, it is so historic.

When I read the reviews of this restaurant I was expecting something great...it was not. I ordered the $31 ribeye (cheaper than the $38 one) and asked for it to be pink inside; it was overdone and dry. My wife had lamb which she thought was tasteless. The noodle soup, green beans, mashed potatoes, and french fries were unremarkable...accompanied by... More
