“Refused Service to Racially Mixed Group”
Reviewed January 1, 2014

I am Afro American and my house guests are white. We went to Martins to get a seafood dinner on Monday since many other restaurants in Flagler County close on Mondays. A member of the party ordered a gator tail dish. It was server in a batter but the individual, having had the dish elsewhere, could find no evidence of gator in the batter. He very politely brought this to the attention of the server. She collected the dish and returned to tell him that the gator tail was grinded up into the batter. With no further conversation, she then presented us with a check for the soup and drinks. When asked what happened to our other orders, she said the cook who is also the restaurant owner told her to refuse use service.

I can't believe that a restaurant could survive with such a policy towards all customers so assumed that there was a racial component to the decision not to serve my party.

“Best prime rib ”
Reviewed December 17, 2013 via mobile

This place is known as having the best prime rib in the Daytona area and it did not disappoint. There is also a nice view of the ocean and a1a if your lucky enough to score a seat by the window . The fried pickles were different as they were spears. The steak was alright. Not quite as good as Out back Steakhouse. The rolls and baked potato were also good as well. Overall a nice experience.

“Absolute satisfaction”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

Went on the recommendation of a local and were completely thrilled. Delicious seafood, attentive staff, humble owner/manager. Wait staff asked us repeatedly if everything was okay. I said it was fabulous and asked if he gets that response a lot. He proudly nodded yes. A real find.

“DON'T GO HERE!!!!!!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

This place seems alright on the outside but once you get inside its a nightmare! when we sat down the waiter was very rude couldn't really take are orders or remember them! I had order the shrimp platter and it tasted like it was frozen and watery the only thing that was good was the French fires and my drink which was sweet tea didn't even taste like sweet tea but just brown water with a funny after taste. This place was horrible I couldn't believe how bad this place was go here on your own risk!
