Don’t pass up an opportunity to enjoy the southern specialties at Martha’ Place. A welcoming and attentive staff will ensure your comfort and, above all, satisfaction of your craving for comfort food. We had spent the day visiting the civil rights memorials, and this was...the perfect way to relax and appreciate Martha’s own struggles that have made her restaurant a destination in itself. If you can restrain yourself, go easy on the chicken and the roast beef to leave room for banana pudding.More

This is a buffet featuring southern cooking. I think they serve the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. People in my group also loved the banana pudding. Everything was tasty and the service was very busy, but friendly. It is a very busy restaurant....We had the special pleasure of meeting Martha and hearing her story: a lovely way to end a great meal.More

This place showed in its web site that it closed at 8. I drove out of the way at 6 to find it closed. A sign on the door posted “new hours” closing at 3, but they didn’t bother putting that online. Four other disappointed...people showed up as well in the short time I was there. Lousy way to do business.More

An excellent buffet usually featuring 3 meat choices and many veggies and starches. A separate dessert table offers cakes , cookies and puddings. The ambiance is very nice at lunch and makes the people feel at home. Price is fixed and a Senior rate is...offered at $10.More

Got in just before noon, seated as soon as we paid. Line at buffet moves slowly. Large pan of fried chicken was all dark meat, wife helped me look. I went with spicy meatloaf, wife took liver and gravy. I noticed one waitress handing out...cups of cobbler while we were in line. Our waitress did a good job but never mentioned cobbler until my wife asked. After sampling it I would put it in my top five.More

Hadn't been to Martha's Place in quite awhile--it has been expanded and is now very nicely laid out and attractive. The tables are covered with lovely black cloth table linens and red charger plates with place settings. There is a hot food bar and a...salad/dessert bar. The hot food bar offered several different entrees and lots of choices for vegetables. The salad bar had a nice variety; dessert bar was limited, but had some delicious options. Service was very good and the food was great. Definitely plan to visit more often!!More

Simple clean meat and three buffet outside of Montgomery. Place was packed at 1pm. Really good Southern Buffett. Fried Chicken and Chicken and Dumplings were in HIGH demand. Good ice tea. A must in the South.
