Dinner last night was delicious, and the bartenders attentive and pleasant. BUT.... beware of Paulina. A self proclaimed gestapo of the dining room, she is rude and controlling. Steer clear of this .... !!!

The meal was awful. I have to return my dish. I was totally overcook. An steak like a shoe sole. The service was slow and not attentive. The food delays more than an hour to be serviced.

The setting here is terrific. Warm, friendly, and inviting. Great beer selections, and the food is delicious. We met the owner, a delightful Irishman, named Martin. A wonderful fellow. Can't wait to return.

With lots of empty tables i shouldnt have to call out to other wait staff to get a desert menu, another drink, the bill. There are enough waiters but they dont watch their tables. Fish and chips are what you would expect if ordered 2,000 miles from the ocean and thawed from the freezer , not just two miles. Great... More

Hello, it is disheartening to learn about the service that was provided to you during your visit. All staff members are trained to be as professional, attentive, and welcoming as possible, and greatly apologize that it did not come across that way to you. Customer service that is not provided to its full potential is unacceptable and will be addressed... More

We are obsessed with John Martins. It's local. It's good. The food is always amazing. Some mentionable's are the crab cakes and the Chicken Milanese. Service is always so good! All the bartenders are always so great I wish I would know all there names. Nate, V, and some girl with great glasses were real stand outs. Must try.

Martin makes your experience an excellent one always trying to please your demands. Going there for so many years and always leaving with a very good taste in my mouth. Highly recommend it

Great Irish Bub. The burger my wife had was outstanding. Just the right amount of seasonings. I had the fish and chips. Fresh fish (2 pieces) with a huge plate full of fries. Beer is cold

I've been a customer here for years. If I lived a little closer, I'd be there more often. Drinks aren't cheap, but the same as the rest in this area. And, there are happy hour deals. The food is quite good, better than most Irish pubs. From appetizers to Irish specialties like Shepherds Pie to full dinners, it's a very... More

Good food, strong drinks, absolutely wonderful waitstaff and very reasonable prices. What more can you ask for? Went there last night on a girls night and we could not have been more pleased.
