Sisters is one of the few
Sisters is one of the few restaurants open on Sunday evenings in Abingdon, but it was a very pleasant surprise. The food was delicious (3 of the 4 of us had a scollop entree which was excellent, and the desserts were to die for!). The restaurant is a little on the pricey side, but you do "get what you pay for." It's a perfect spot to go after a Barter Theatre matinee performance, almost across the street from Barter.

The entire food experience
The entire food experience at The Sisters was all we hoped for. Our server, Courtney was knowledgeable on the foods on the menu. She was courteous and attentive. The food was presented nicely and everything was wonderful. The artisanal cheeseplate was enjoyed by all! The scallops were perfect and desserts were ordered (which we don't normally do) on the advice of our server. So happy we did because the peach cheesecake was great and the chocolate mousse was heaven! Loved the place!

This is the nicest dining
This is the nicest dining spot in town. Abingdon has several good places to dine at but this where my wife and I go to treat ourselves. The food is really good but what makes the sisters a great place is the old style room and the design of the place. Makes a person feel like it their in a 40s movie. just a very nice place.

One of the best meals we have ever had. If you are in the area, don't miss it.

Before the show
Made a reservation for six people to done before a show at the Barter Theatre. The atmosphere was wonderful and we were treated fantastic. The courses were served appropriately and each dish was exceptional. Our guests had not been here before and they were very impressed also.
Will definitely be returning.

We visited the Martha Washington Inn for the weekend and dined at Sisters at the Martha both nights we were there. The food was outstanding and the staff at the Martha went beyond our expectations at being attentive and courteous. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Abingdon area.

Great atmosphere so so entree
Really nice restaurant with ambiance and good service. The bone in steak was just not up to the standards of fine dining.

We stay at The Martha Washington and eat at Sisters whenever we are in Abingdon, and they never fail to impress and please. Service is attentive and friendly, and the food is excellent and beautifully presented.

Wonderful but filet not the best
I went to this restaurant back in April and everything was perfect!!! I had the filet and it was melt in your mouth good. This time mine was almost medium well when I had ordered medium rare to medium. I never send anything back but would have sent this back except we were cutting it close to curtain time at the Barter Theatre. I will try it again for sure. Our waitress was helpful and precious!! The overall dining experience was wonderful, but I really was disappointed in my filet

Delicious food...great ambiance
We have been coming to the area for many years but always passed by the "Martha". For our Anniversary we decided to go out for a special dinner and reserved seats thru open table. We were captivated from the moment we walked in the door. Surrounded by the history we read about. The Inn is beautiful and the restaurant was equally as impressive. We had drinks at the bar and had delicious dinner followed by yummy dessert. To top the night off we asked the friendly staff at the front desk if we could see one of the rooms. We were shown several rooms all equally stunning in its own right. We will definitely be back and plan to stay the night next time. Thanks Martha staff for a wonderful night!

Cozy Dining & southern hospitality
Just took a quick trip to see family and decided to stay overnight at The Martha. Made reservations for 7 (seated promptly) and ordered a drink and the lobster fritters as an appetizer (yum). I ordered the delicious scallops with bacon ravioli. Scallops were good, but the bacon was a bit overwhelming in the ravioli. Sauce was delish! My husband ordered the bone-in ribeye and was totally satisfied. I gave him my ravioli and he was thrilled (being a man who could eat chocolate covered bacon and be happy!) All in all a great evening. We watched 4th of July fireworks from the 3rd floor veranda of the Garden wing to end a great day.

A lovely surprise!
Went to a Sunday matinee at the Barter (fabulous !) ,since most restaurants are closed on a Sunday night ,we chose the hotel we were staying at.It turned out to be wonderfully in every respect! Would recommend it highly!

Love food? Eat here!
This was a wonderful dining experience. My crab cakes were perhaps the best I have ever had and my husband's lobster stuffed trout was outstanding. The dining room is elegant but not stuffy and our server was friendly, but professional. I highly recommend Sisters at The Martha.

Quiet & Relaxing
We found Sisters at the Martha a great place to dine with friends. We were celebrating an anniversary and met another couple that shared our same date. It was a very relaxed environment and we found it very easy to have conversation with our friends - contrary to a lot of other restaurants. The food was well presented and good.

We had heard differing reviews
We had heard differing reviews of Sisters, so we were wondering what we would find there. What we found was great service, a chance for a "private room" for dinner (they have some tables that are separated from the main dining room by wooden walls) and an excellent meal. The lobster bisque was excellent. The heirloom tomato appetizer was very good, but heavier on the lettuce than the tomatoes. We had the salmon and the fish -- both were quite good and the sauces made the dishes. You may want to ask for your fish to be less done, we found both of them a bit more cooked than to our liking.
Angie, the server, was fantastic and knew just when to check on us and just when to leave us alone. Overall, very good food and service.

Plus and Minus
Spouse's steak was very, very good. My lobster stuffed trout was disappointing, as was the lobster fritters (an appetizer)
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have stayed at the Martha Washington several times and usually have had at least one meal at Sisters or its predecessor. Very comfortable environment for quiet special occasion or just fine dining. Not extensive menu but well planned to offer something for all tastes. Great service.

Great meal...will be back!
Enjoyed that I was given a good table (although I was alone). Treated well and courteously. Bartender particularly nice and welcoming.

Expected something different. The food was excellent and large portions. The service was adequate. Unfortunately, on our visit, there was a crying baby and noisy toddlers everywhere, indoors and outdoors. It was very convenient to The Barter Theater, to which we had tickets on Sunday afternoon. So, we had Sunday brunch at Sisters before the show.

I surprised my girlfriend with this dinner for our one and a half years and we were both extremely pleased. This was the first time we both had been to Sisters at Martha and our experience was great,, from the greeting to the end of our visit we were treated like family and the hosts were extremely nice. This restaurant is definitely the place to go if one is looking for a romantic getaway and wanting to forget everything that is happening around them and have just a relaxing romantic night out.

The food was very good. The steak melted in your mouth.

Sisters at The Martha
We enjoy eating at Sisters whenever we're in Abingdon. We attend the Barter Theatre regularly, and The Martha Washington Hotel, in which Sisters is found, is conveniently right across the street. We have come to know some of the staff, and they treat us like family. Food and wines are all wonderful.

Love the Martha Washington
Love the Martha Washington and this restaurant! Been several times and am never disappointed.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Such a treat
The restaurant is so elegant. Most people do not frequent such fine restaurants and it is such a pleasure to treat ourselves once in
while. From the time you enter the restaurant until you leave, the staff is friendly and nothing is to much trouble.
We look forward to coming back and staying at the Inn when we can.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went to Abingdon, Va to celebrate our 31st wedding anniversary. We decided to stay at the Martha Washington Inn. We had dinner at Sisters and it was just terrific! Our table was in a semi-private area which was quite nice. The waitress was excellent and the food was fantastic! Definitely want to return soon.

Charm of the Old South
Sisters offers a wonderful dining experience located in a beautiful Old South setting. Love the way some of the tables are tucked into private alcoves. Especially enjoyed the stuffed trout. Our server was attentive and efficient.

a must visit
Sisters at MWI was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. For our anniversary, we had private seating, excellent food and wine, and attentive but not overly so, waitstaff. We will definately come again when we are in the area and we highly recommmend it for others.

Great place for an aniversary celeb
Sisters at Martha Washington Inn, Abingdon, VA has an early 20s ambiance but a modern menu and great service. We've eaten there 4-5 times, and each time enjoyed it more. Convenient to the Barter Theatre, and steeped in history. Parking is convenient yet valet service is available. Server was attentive, yet not overly so. My wife and I are sure to dine there again.

An Appropriate Thanksgiving
Considering that it was an extraordinary occasion, and we dined in the ballroom, not the restaurant, I'd say it was a festive way to observe Thanksgiving not at home and surrounded by family. The piano music was a stellar addition. And the food was fresh and attractive and plentiful. And we were the last seating! Martha Washington Inn is to be commended for running things smoothly and efficiently.
