On a business trip and was able to meet my brother, sister in law, niece and uncle for dinner. Had great food, loved the Salt and Pepper Shrimp with a mushroom, veggie burger. Prices wasn't bad and waiters were very attentive. My experience here was very good. Best part of the experience was being with family.

After receiving an email about this restaurant's special St. Patrick's Day dinner, I was looking forward to a good, if not great corn beef and cabbage. Unfortunately it wasn't as good as advertised. I had to ask the server about it, because it wasn't even mentioned when asked for our order. The corn beef was not tender at all. The... More

Order things to split! We started with the artichoke then moved on to the fried shrimp, salad and finished with the amazing beef and bacon tacos! All really good. Very enjoyable journey of food.

Seven of us went two adult families for a special birthday dinner, with a 7:30 pm dinner reservation. The table was not ready upon arrival, and the seven of us were eventually seated at a table perfect for six. The waitress was able to squeeze us in between her discussions with the other booths she was servicing, finally taking our... More

Dined here with co-workers that wanted a decent burger. I had the French dip. Food was ok but nothing spectacular. Service was good. Over priced for what was offered

This is a good restaurant and has good food and service. I would recommend you get the seafood platter, its very worth it. The bar and restaurant are together so it might be loud when its happy hour. There is a separate seating area for one big table if you want to hold a group dinner. Overall food is good... More

This place is affordable during the noisy (dast I say yuppie?) happy hour sitting in the bar area. Otherwise the prices are very steep for us! It was more than $40 for New York and Filet Mignon. They serve mashed potatoes with the Filet but not the New York. Both came with a vegetable (cauliflower and spinach). You can get... More

Went here for dinner with a friend. The service was excellent. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. We had the artichoke appetizer (My friend is a vegetarian.) and it was ok. (Not much to eat there and a lot of work to get it. Kind of like peeling shrimp or eating crab but with those, the payoff is a whole... More

We had such a great waiter, D (or Dee?). His personality was perfect for a great dinner with a friend (and the filet was excellent).

I was here now the second time. Service was excellent. Better is not possible. I took a prime rib steak which was nice and soft and tasty. The wine recommendation was really good. Dessert was a chocolate cake with ice cream. Even the espresso was hot and good.

At the heart of all great food is fresh, local, peak of the season ingredients. Paul Martin’s aims to take diners back to the farm with meat raised in a humane and wholesome way, locally sourced organic produce, the best of both wild and farmed fish, artisan cheeses and cured meats from small local purveyors.Surveys show that 78 percent of American consumers value regional and local food for home cooking. Why? For health, taste and to preserve the rural landscape. Embracing this concept, Paul Martin's believes it's their responsibility to carry these values into the restaurant kitchen.
