This is a quirky little restaurant located in the parking lot next to Reny's department store. The walls and shelves are filled with old movie memorabilia which is fun to see. The menu is large for a small eatery and they offer daily specials like crabmeat pie or quiche, stews and chowders. A great selection of sandwiches and the breakfasts... More

I have eaten here many many times and have NEVER had a bad meal. Breakfast is my favorite, the service is friendly and the food is the best in the area.

The food was delicious, I had a veggie omelette and a pumpkin pancake, husband had a breakfast burrito. We had a very nice waitress and the place was cute and cozy. Coffee could have been warmer but I'm picky. Will definitely return!

My husband and I ate here once and will never go back. Our meals came to the table and there was a hair on mine. I brought it to the waitesses attention and she took the plate away and removed the hair and the food it was touching, replaced the food and brought back the same plate instead of redoing... More

Martha's diner is that place that everyone knows everyone. Sure it's a local spot and you know it's good when there's a line out the door. We grab the crab cakes and they were excellent. Servers treated us as if we were family.

Excellent for breakfasts and lunches - they close at 2 p.m. - friendly staff - fast service. Memories of yesteryear abound with the items lining the walls..

We had multiple good breakfasts here at Martha's. The ham was especially excellent, but everything our group ordered was very good. The people were very friendly. Bring your cash, though, as no plastic payment is available.

The one problem with Martha's is everyone knows about it. It took me several tries to figure out when to go that didn't involve waiting in line. Eggs were cooked perfectly. Unlike most dinners they seem to have discovered how to set the right grill temp with reasonable delivery time. No more having to ask for eggs well done to... More
