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

Food in great amounts (Basque), delicious ! Cordial, speedy service, community seating, let's you know that folks come from far away to get a seat here. Get in there! You'll love it! We stop by on our way to or from Utah. Usually stay at a motel in Winnemucca, too. There's a room in the back where VERY GOOD bands... More

This is my second review of The Martin after three trips. The meals continue to be excellent. This last visit was lamb shanks. I don't think there is a bad choice on the menu. The family style seating allows for some great conversations with people from all over the country and not surprisingly many are there on repeat visits. The... More

I didn't count the courses, but I'm guessing there were 8 or so. Served in Basque style, the different courses keep coming and coming. All delicious, and at a reasonable price.

This is just a really bad restaurant. I don't know why it comes up as the number one place to eat in Winnemucca. It was very expensive too. They have steaks priced at $41.00. The free wine tastes like vinegar. The wait staff is nice though.

If you are passing through Winnemucca - the Martin Hotel sounds great. It is unique but not great. Portions are large but the food is medium at best. I;ve been there twice - not goimng bak.

Finally dragged my husband to The Martin Hotel. Had always wanted to go back after visiting 5 years ago. Plans always changed and because it was several hundred miles off our route we never seemed to make it. We arrived shortly before opening but only had to wait a few minutes. As I remembered the food was awesome (well worth... More
