“The manager ruined our experience. We will never return!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We were enjoying snacks and drinks at the bar and watching our favorite team Auburn Univ. play on TV. The manager was very upset, since he is an Alabama fan. He made gestures to his t-shirt saying he liked any other team than Auburn. We kept quiet, but he acted like he was going to explode. We were so uncomfortable we left. We have never felt so unwelcome! Even in Alabama! We will never return.

“A Neighborhood Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Mechanicsville has numerous chain restaurant/bars. Marty's bar (in the numerous times we've been, we've never eaten on the restaurant side) has a relaxed and friendly style. They have good day to day specials on the menu, which are reasonably priced. Add a good wait staff and decent bartenders, and it's probably as good as your going to get in Mechanicsville area. If we didn't like it, we wouldn't continue to go, because there are certainly plenty of other places to get a drink.

“Middle of the road but ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Nothing outstanding but nothing terrible either. The burgers are certainly decent - handmade and good sized. Our burgers were cooked correctly which is better than most places. Nobody in our party of 8 finished their fries. My fries were pretty tasteless and a bit soggy in grease. I can't remember food on previous visits so I am not sure that I will stray too far from the burgers.

Service was pretty decent for a busy night although seating took a very long time despite the table being open the entire time we waited (with reservations). The atmosphere is nothing grand in the dining area but it is is in a grocery store strip mall so that is a given, I guess. The bar side has no real atmosphere and pretty generic but decently laid out. There is also outdoor seating which is a nice choice. The tv's are too small or they need more of them since you could not see the games playing from even a few tables away.

Conclusion - decent place for burgers and beer but cookie cutter atmosphere,

“Great Staff - Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had excellent service from our waitress but the manager (Becka McKay) was awesome. She made sure we had everything we needed and more. The food was great...but always tastes better with great service!
