George Martin's Strip Steak
Best steak on LI?The named strip steak was the best I've ever tasted
The cowboy rib eye was slightly tougher and could have benefited with a sauce or topping
Main room adjacent to bar can be noisy (try candelabra room or private room in back)
Imaginative drinks and good wine selection
Service very professional
Yummy desserts (chocolate cake ice cream with Carmel /carrot cake)
Pricey but worth the money6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Steaks wereFood was great. Steaks were very tender and had a geat flavor.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExpensive. Food was excellentExpensive. Food was excellent but the service wasnt so good. Waited a good 10 minutes to recieve two glasses of wine at the table as well as waited awhile to recieve my check. The bad service over shadowed the excellent food that the chiefs work so hard preparing.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOff the beaten pathJust a short ride south off Montauk Hgwy, you will find George Martins Strip Steak and it is worth the trip. The locals know about it but you won't pass it as a passerby. This place has it all...great menu and a terrific steak selection, generous portions, wine galore, an attentive staff that provides impeccable service and a lovely, warm and inviting atmosphere. We come a few times a year and for special occasions, and they never disappoint. Highly recommended!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemThis restaurant, off the beaten track, is one of our favorites. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here this week, and could not have had a better experience. The wait staff are friendly and professional. The food is delicious, and the atmosphere is sophisticated and warm. Highly recommend.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always a pleasure.Food is always good here. We have been to this restaurant numerous times and this time around went for the Special Prime Rib which is served on Sundays. Excellent.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat quaint placea hidden gem with exceptional service and great food!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSteakhouse for CouplesThe nice things about George Martin's steakhouse is that its not the over-the-top ambiance of so many steakhouses today. Its a charming house like setting and staff is not trying to club you over the head over selling you on things. Its a relaxed and nicely decorated setting that make you comfortable. The steaks are not quite the calibre of the very best steak houses, but it is quite good. Popovers have been added to the bread plate and they have a fine wine list. They do need to chill their wine, even reds to a 59 degree temperature. Food was cooked exactly as ordered and we enjoyed another meal here.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good; braised ribsFood was good; braised ribs and sauce were fairly bland, however. Very attentive wait staff.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaksThe steak was probably one of the best I've ever had. This is the second time my wife and friends have been there and would definitely return. Everything was wonderful.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge Martin Strip SteakHidden in Great River LI, a quiet area near East Islip. Excellent food & great service! HIGHLY recommend this place, can't wait to go back!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DelightMy husband and I ate here for my birthday. I cannot say enough about this restaurant. The staff was wonderful and attentive. We were given the option between the main dining room and the speak easy room- we chose the speak easy room because we wanted a more private, romantic experience. That us exactly what we got! The speak easy room was cozy and had a fireplace and we were the only people in the room. The food was delicious! I love their signature skirt steak!!! The skirt steak is enormous- I brought half home. My husband had the ribeye and seared sea scallops. He did not bring anything home, but that is not a comment on the portion size. Definitely a special occasion restaraunt because it is pricey. What a wonderful birthday dinner.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemFood, wine ,service, absolutely wonderful. I would definitely recommend George Martin's Strip Steak as a great place to go.The oysters rockefeller were out of control delicious as was everything we had.It is a very peaceful cozy and relaxing place to eat.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a fun eveningOur first time at this newly opened restaurant. Enjoyable time. Noise level higher than I like. Acoustic dampening of some sort would be a big plus. Food was good, although pricey. Very nice presentations. We eat out many times a week and are frequent diners in NY City. This restaurant seems to be attempting to emulate some of the finer restaurants in NY City and it isn't succeeding.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDef have to check this place outReceived a gift card for this place and was so happy we did. The food was great, service was great, and I did not feel like it was 'snooty' at all which was even better. We will definitely go back and recommend to friends. Thank you!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat specialMy wife and I went there on a Monday night to find they have a great special called his and hers. Great food for a great price. And since it was a Monday it wasn't very crowded.

Nice place, a bit loud.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a great find. AtmosphereWhat a great find. Atmosphere is warm and bartenders and servers are so friendly.
The experience as a whole exceeded my expectations. The meal overall was delicious and had alot of creative takes on typical Steakhouse favorites. The highlight of the meal was my husband's strip steak that was seasoned deliciously with sea salt, pepper and house seasoning. He didn't leave an ounce of meat on the bone. We will definitely be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGeorge Martin's is the bestGreat food and service. No wonder why this restaurant was rated so highly on Open Table! This should be the only place where you should eat steak on Long Island.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI love this place! My husbandI love this place! My husband and I dine here often. This night was to celebrate a friends birthday so it was girls night out for four. We had a wonderful server and sat in the exclusive Red Room by the bar. Excellent time for all!3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were very excited to tryWe were very excited to try this neighborhood restaurant for the first time. What we noticed at first was the noise level. We were seated in a quieter room too! The service was absolutely outstanding! We decided to order from the specials for the evening. I felt they were over priced. The fresh mozzarella appetizer seemed cold inside and at $15 I was expecting something outstanding. Wasn't served with any garlic bread as stated and olive oil either. I told our waitress after it was taken away. The entrees were very good, but at $48 and $38 I would expect that. The dessert apple turnover dessert was just okay, but could have added a drizzle of caramel or a sprinkle of something on the plate. We may try again in the future.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, generous portions.Food was great, generous portions.

Great resturant in a quite little town out east!3/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCute til people showed upThis is a nice little place with some retro burlesque and nude photos on the wall. Very intimate and the food was pretty good. We had a early reservation so when we went in there was a group of 4 and another small group near us and that was it. 30 minutes later the place was filled and the noise was ridiculous. My wife and I were sitting at the 3 and 6 spot of the table and we still had to almost yell to hear each other and say "what?" a lot. Completely ruined our time and detracted from the very calm atmosphere we had before it filled up. We are all for liveliness but either the design was bad for the noise or the incoming people felt the need to yell.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steaks great serviceThe service is very professional, the food is excellent. I have never had a bad steak.7/7/2012 12:00:00 AM
