Felt like a Southern, home-cooked meal. We really have no Southern experience to compare to, but by the amount of "locals" that came through, I think they hit the mark. My husband and I had fried chicken (good), the squash (really good, even if you hate vegetables), lima beans, french fries. Best part: we watched the fish delivery - a... More

If you like food and a relaxed atmosphere this is a great place to eat. We were traveling with a large group and the restaurant was expecting our arrival. They reserved space to accommodate us and assigned staff to our party. We were treated very well and the service couldn't have been better. When we got our food we were... More

My daughter and I took a road trip from Huntsville to Montgomery for the Alabama all-state honor band. It's Friday and what's a dad to do but spoil his youngest and take her out for dinner. We arrived at the restaurant at 6:30 pm and found a packed parking lot. Not sure where all those people are because there were... More

So we were traveling through the area on a Sunday and my son and I were in the mood for some good soul food. We live in the rural south and we are accustomed to really good and genuine soul food so we are a mite picky. I read the reviews about Martin's and read a few negative Yelper reviews... More

Some of the best home cooked soul food in Montgomery, Alabama. The chicken is delicious, just like everything else that you can order from Martin's. I highly recommend this restaurant.

A coworker's cousin, who lives in Montgomery, recommended Martin's for lunch and we saw why. The place was packed, with people waiting to be seated. We had the fried chicken, which was delicious. My wife said that was the closest to her mom's fried chicken that she ever had. I had the cole slaw, my wife had black-eyed peas, mac... More

Incredible in everyway. I often resort to TripAdvisor when I want to try something new. Martin's did not disappoint! Corn muffins PERFECTLY cooked with the right crunch. A complimentary pully-bone (bc we were first time diners...thank you Theresa!)...and if I have to explain what a pully-bone is then you might want to brush up on your southern cuisine before you...

Other couple both got fried catfish and veggies. My chicken was luke warm at best, probably left over from lunch. Wife's chicken was hot, but overcooked and... More

Was visiting area for a bowl game and wanted to experience some down home Southern cooking and couldn't made a better choice. Everything was great and you better leave room for the banana pudding.

We've been visiting Martin's for years and it's only gotten better with time! One of the few "old Montgomery" eateries still in action and it never disappoints! If you haven't been you should go and if you have then you know what I mean!
