Dear Martin, My husband and I have been away from our Key West home and terrible miss your delicious restaurant. I recently had baby lambs chops in a supposedly high end restaurant in Connecticut and to the chefs disappointment I informed him Martins is the...best and only place in the world that I would eat lamb chops. I want to thank you for the best food I ever tasted and to let you know we consider your restaurant the best of the best. The staff and food is cooked to perfection and I can not wait unit the end of June for our return. What I did discover in Connecticut is my favorite dates with goat cheese and bacon so perhaps you can add this to your small plates. Thank you Martin for taking pride in everything you serve.More

Had reservations and asked to eat outside but was told they were booked. The restaurant remained half full the entire time we were there. It looked like they were turning people away so it all must have been a staffing issue. Food was excellent and...drinks were average. Too full for any dessert. Server was exuberant and ended up telling the specials to us and the table beside us at the same time. We had put that it was our anniversary, but it really was of no consequence. Overall food was excellent. Best lobster bisque ever.More

My husband and I wound up dining at Martin's for our last dinner on the island before leaving the next day. Many restaurants were booked, but luckily I was able to get a reservation the same evening. The gentleman on the phone was so nice...and accommodating that he reserved a perfect table outside in the back part of the restaurant. My husband had the Beef Wellington and I had the black grouper special. We usually have the tapas for happy hour but were very impressed with their dinner.More

Martin’s has been a fixture in Key West for over 30 years. Martin, the owner and chef, isGerman. The menu is an interesting mix of Caribbean and German. They have an amazing, upscale happy hour! They also have some of the best lobster in town,...both 2 pound Maine lobsters and Caribbean lobster tails. If youare in Key West, you have to go to Martin’s!More

Great service explaining the menu and menu highlights. I got the filet minion and my husband got the ribeye. Some of the best cooked and tasting steaks we have ever had. Sides are al la carte and are big enough to share. The banana foster...was amazing and they also brought us a chocolate mouse of our anniversary. Did not disappoint!More

This is our new favorite place for dinner. The lobster tails were so huge and plump. Crab cakes were the best I have had anywhere so far. Make sure to have a martini while here. I had a lemon drop

We went for happy hour - half priced apps and drinks did not disappoint. They have a nice martini and wine list for happy hour too! We enjoyed the baked Brie, lamp chops, crab cakes, foie gras, and shrimp skewers. All were delicious. The atmosphere...was nice too. We sat outside and it felt like you were sitting in someone’s quaint back yard. Service was great as well.More

The hotel recommended this restaurant and they were fabulous! Our waiter recommended some items and each one was a delight. The food was tasty and our waiter spaced the food so we could enjoy each course. They accept reservations and you have some room between...yourself and other diners; we had plexiglass between us and the next table.More

Celebrating a special event in Key West is easy because there are so many great restaurants. This year we wanted to change it up from one of our favorites. So we decided on Martin’s. A place we had never been but with great reviews. It...didn’t disappoint. The menu features many typical offerings and then some signature German choices. It also boasts a fun Tapas menu. Between the 4 of us we chose the Lamb Shank, a Lobster Pasta, Lobster Bisque and their Yellowtail Snapper topped with Crabmeat special. Each meal was outstanding. Would highly recommend Martin’s as a special place. And we are ready to go back and try their Tapas menu!More

Yes. Fabulous happy hour. One of the best in Key West. Starts at 4pm-but get there early for a good seat. Great martini’s!
