Came here with family for lunch when the place was pretty empty. 3 of the 9 orders were wrong and it wasn't complicated - and one was a food allergy! Waitress reported cook did not read what she wrote. It is a nicely setup Irish pub inside. Food was okay, service was slow. Expected better since it is on miracle... More

I always know what I am going to rate a restaurant before I write the review and I like to see what others review as well. I am always impressed by the owner or manager of a restaurant address complements and concerns at their establishment, it shows they really care about what they do. 4/14/2017, 7:45 PM; We were greeted...

This was a disappointment to say the least. As most of the reviews state, the hamburger was good but the meatloaf, which was supposedly to be one of their speciality items was only fair. The peas and carrots on the plate was nothing more than a frozen item that had been heated and put on the plate--everything was crunchy and... More

Each of our meals are made to order and prepared with fresh ingredients--not frozen. We want you to have the best possible experience with us, and we ask that... More

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.

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.

Just love this place for quaint lunch or dinner. Love their soups, the Pub Burger is delicious, the brei and fruit is super good. The friendly service and drinks just puts it over the top.
