Really cool place, great food & lots of history. Georgetown is a great place to spend a day and Martin's is a Georgetown institution. Highly recommended.

Came here for dinner on a week night. Everything from the service to the food and atmosphere was wonderful. If in the area I will want to make a point to come back here.

Wonderful tavern. Presidents dined here and the food proves why. The steaks ate to die for. Make reservations to be sure to get in. Parking can be an issue so plan accordingly. Otherwise this is a great dining experience.

I believe children are welcome here but it is more of a college bar and grill atmosphere.

At Martin's Tavern, every sitting president from Truman to G.W. Bush has dined. Ask your server to point out the booth where JFK proposed to Jackie.
