Martha and everyone gave us an outstanding experience, from the food, the atmosphere (outdoors), the wine selection and the service.

So honestly this is not a review of the food but the host. From the moment we arrived & told her our name she was rude. We were looking forward to a nice dinner but when we arrived we were told our table wasn't ready....No big deal, except there were open tables for 4 which seemed strange. We asked if we could get a glass of wine while we wait & the host said we could wait out by the sidewalk where there is a bench. She did not offer for us to wait at any of the open outside tables. Unfortunately, the bench was occupied so we returned inside. (Thought it would be strange standing on the front walk drinking... )There is no real place to stand so the host was visibly irritated and finally offered an outside table for dinner. My husband explained that we had reserved an inside table & a few of us weren't prepared for a cool night. She rolled her eyes, huffed & said they have blankets and we had only been waiting 10 minutes & she couldn't seat us at the open table inside as it would confuse her system because when those people showed up they might have to wait? She continued to rant but... Anyways, it wasn't the waiting that was the problem (although a bar or waiting area would have helped) but the host was rude right from the start. Maybe she didn't like our name? Don't know why she had a chip on her shoulder but she made us so uncomfortable we decided to go elsewhere.More

Martha, Thank you for a beautiful evening with our dear friends who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. We were greeted by you and welcomed into your restaurant as if we were family. Our server Rafael was phenomenal, the food was delicious, and the music...was an added touch. Only downside was that we were seated close to the live music, and it was at times too loud and distracting.More

It was tough not giving 5 stars. The food was excellent as was the service. We would definitely try it again. I personally love perusing the menu before I get to a new restaurant, my husband on the other hand likes to wait until we...get there. Our waitress gave us the rundown of their specials then gave us some time to decide. I’d been looking forward to the scallops for days, unfortunately they were out. My husband decided on the lamb chops that were a special for the evening, they were out when we ordered. Although we still enjoyed our dinners, we were just a little disappointed. And oddly once we placed our orders, our waitress came back and asked me why I didn’t order the crab cakes that were on special. Well, I didn’t have a taste for them. Was that really a question that needed to be asked?More

This was a very interesting experience. Martha's inside of this small house, but they make the most out of the space available. Plus they have a cute outside patio for dining. The menu was small, but very good. The scallops were very good and the...plate was very satisfying. My wife had the crab cakes which were very tasty too. The drinks were good too. The service was a bit on the slow side, but the charm of this place counteracted that. Check this place out.More

Fantastic farm to table meal. Chef Martha is very involved with the food. I ordered lobster Wellington. Husband ordered rack of elk and Martha’s house salad. Friends ordered vegetarian shepherds pie and crab cakes. We had artichoke appetizer and fried green tomatoes for appetizers. Debbie...was our phenomenal server. The hostess was exceptionally sweet as they were very busy. We always come back to this restaurant and love it every time! Very cute outdoor patio with live music. Reservations recommended. Definitely save room for dessert-chocolate creme de pot!! (Chocolate custard) This was so good!More

We had a fabulous dinner (as always)! We appreciated the COVID vaccine card requirement. Debbie is THE best server, full of energy & joy, and well-versed on the menu details. We particularly enjoyed the fabulous live jazz guitar duo! They were very talented & they...kept their volume (speakers) at a perfect level to enjoy but not be overpowering. A very memorable experience! (Call ahead for a reservation. They had a great "early bird" prix fixe menu.)More

Despite a lackluster welcome by the hostess, we truly enjoyed our dinning experience at Martha’s. We were seated outside, where there were blankets on our seats for the chill in the air, a fire going and some subtle, live music. My husband and I started...with a raclette appetizer special and shared Martha’s salad, a delicious combination of heirloom tomatoes, poppyseed dressing and spinach. I had the salmon, perfectly cooked, with blackened shrimp, seasonal veggies, mashed potatoes in a creamy tomato sauce. My husband had the walleye, which was also nicely cooked, but a little bland in comparison to my dish. A little salt helped amp the flavor. Overall, service was attentive despite being crowded. There are strict covid protocols in place, which we appreciated. After seeing the interior, glad we were seated outside as the space looked very tight compared to the patio.More
