“Dirty and not delicious”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We stopped at Martins because of trip advisor's high rating and it was on our way. It was very disappointing.We should have left after seeing the built up dirt in the restroom. We stayed as people were lined up so we thought surely the food must be good. It was not. Almost everything deep fried to death and tasteless. Fried calamari is my favourite but these rubber bands were inedible. Once you look around the dining area was very dirty as well. We left after just tasting the food.

“Eat here. You will love it”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We were very happy with service. Fresh buns, good tasting salad awesome prime rib and potato. We wish we lived here as what a great value and food freshness. You sit in a old school surrounding looking the ocean. Casual and very nice to see the owner stopped and asked all guests how food was and refilled drinks. Very impressed! We will be back.

“Valentines day surprise”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We had not eaten at Martins for several years. We decided to go for valentines day and were pleasantly surprised. We each ordered the special which was strip steak and choice of two sides.
We each had the baked potato and cole slaw. The meal was delicious and we each boxed up half of the steak to go. The price for this feast was only $10.95. In the past my wife and myself have split the king cut rib and purchased two extra sides, the total for this is @ $25.00. I dought that you have never been served a piece of meat as large as this east of Texas. They just cut the legs off and put it on the plate. We always took half of it home as we would have overstuffed ourselves for sure.
Martins does not take reservations, but even on Valentines day we only waited @ 20 Min.

“Huge prime rib!!!!”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

My wife and I decided to share a prime rib dinner since the restaurant was well known for its beef. We ordered the king cut $23 and paid $2.50 extra to share and 2 extra sides. This huge slab came out that was over lapping the plate and about1.5 inches thick. It was delicious! We took enogh home for 3 more meals.

The only poor thing were the steak knives. They were cheap knives and it was hard to cut the meat. We told the server about this and he agreed.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Portions are unreal. Beef was delicious & there are always great specials. We love those lightly breaded onion rings. Decor is very plain, but the food makes up for the decor. We always make several trips when we are down on vacation in Daytona even though it is a 20 mile drive...it is worth the trip. We have been coming for years & recommend it to others at our motel.
