Martin's had a fire in the kitchen and the restaurant is shuttered with all its staff let go. They had wanted to retire - so the chances of reopening I'm sure are slim.

Martin's has been a favorite stop for breakfast and lunch for many years. While it can become a bit crowded at peak times it is worth bumping elbows with fellow patrons. The food is consistently great and prices are about average for this area without being excessive.

This has been a long time favorite for our family, particularly for breakfasts on lazy summer weekends. Service is always good and the food even better. They don't take credit cards, so make sure you've got cash on hand and they don't take reservations either, so be prepared to wait if you hit a busy time, but it's worth it.... More

One of the side streets in town is Railroad St., and along this street are some of the coolest preserved old buildings I have seen in a long time. While walking to a guitar shop on Railroad, I spotted Martin's and hit it for lunch followed by breakfast the next day. Really good find, good food, good people. A lot... More

Martin's is a Great Barringon stronghold. I've only ever eaten breakfast here, but I have to say, it's pretty awesome. It's just like a lot of other breakfast diners, but they have grits! And the kind of grits you can get in the south. I haven't found anywhere else - even in NY - that has them. The staff is... More

My sister and I brought our 4 grandchildren (all under the age of 8) for breakfast and it was great. Kids had Mickey Mouse pancakes and we had stuffed French toast which was wonderful. Service is good but if you don't like sitting in close quarters then this is not the place for you. Locals and vacationers alike eat here... More

Normally love coming here. But recently I've noticed that unless your waitress thinks you can afford to give her a huge tip you get dirty looks from the wait staff, poor, and impersonal service. Service that borders on rude. I don't like negativity, but this deserved a public warning so people are well informed before they choose where to eat.... More

Loved the pancakes, especially the whole wheat banana! The tofu scramble was excellent as well. And my son loved his omelet. Our waitress was attentive and pleasant. Thanks Angel! Looking forward to coming back. By the way, it was packed when we got there but the wait wasn't bad at all.
