We had been looking for a Basque experience on our drive through Nevada, and just happened on this historic hotel in the tiny town of Winnemucca. We had the sampler plates to try a bit of everything. Plenty of food, interesting twist on our usual fare. Ask about spicyness if that is a factor for you and be prepared that... More

Our group of three couples on the way to Reno went here for supper because one in our group had heard about it. It is a quaint, historic building with lots of historical artifacts to check out. A first glance at the posted menu looked a little high end until we ate and found out all that was included. The... More

Family style Basque restaurant. The Martin has been there since 1883. Lots of great history. But better, the food and service are great. First, I learned about a Basque aperitif named Picon ; lovely. Never heard of it! Next, one of the best minestrone style soups ever followed by another first. Crispy salad with light vinaigrette BUT, ever heard of... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to follow the ratings. We were not disappointed. Our food (lamb chops, glazed carrots, salad (beans), soup, mashed potatoes,tomato chicken side and wine) was great. We were seated with a friendly, charming couple from CA to complete the evening. The grand finale was a wonderful bread pudding. It's a pricey, family... More

Stayed in Winnemucca specifically because our previous visits to the Martin Hotel had been so good. Not so this time. Previously no menus, just verbal choices, now menus and increased prices. I was so looking forward to their thick, juicy perfectly cooked lamb chops - not to be this time, thin and over-cooked, so badly I sent them back. Came... More

Start with a picon punch at the bar then enjoy seemingly endless entrees served family style. We tried the sirloin and the chicken marsala. Be sure to put the beans on your salad. Its tradition. A bit spend but worth every penny!

People who like large quantities of food will like this place. Like most "Basque" restaurants, large portions are served from common dishes (shared by the group ordering); seating is a tables shared with strangers. Basque shepherds lived in small wagons in the hills, eating plain fare with a lamb focus. So too is the food at the Martin Hotel. I... More

Go here if you are really hungry and be prepared for a rollicking evening with other guests! The service is family style and the food is really good! And of course since you are in the middle of nowhere, everyone is really friendly and happy to help you navigate the Basque dining traditions. You may have to ask for a... More

We have been to Basque contry in the Pyranees, and the food here was equally tasty and delicious. As in Basque country, dining is family style. The service was excellent, and the food really well prepared.

I used to live in Winnemucca and the Martin was always good. I moved out of the area about 15 years ago. Passing through town last week and stopped for lunch. I was expecting it not to be as good but I was so pleased when the food was excellent! The decor is old Basque Nevada and is clean and... More
