Have been here a few times in the last year and it's always been very good. Great, diverse menu and I've tried a number of the items and they've all been delicious. Went with my wife on Valentine's Day so it was a limited menu, however it was an Ash Wednesday and was very happy they had several seafood options. I had the Salmon and it was perfectly cooked and the red cabbage that went with it was a perfect combination, great flavor. The Lobster Risotto appetizer was also fantastic. Staff was knowledgeable and professional. Overall a great evening and we will definitely be back.

Food was very good, I wouldn't say pricey but a little more than what I expect from a "pubby" type of place. Noise level from the bar was strong.

The experience as a whole was a good one. However my friend has a seafood allergy and when asked about a separate grill for a non seafood dish was told that they that every thing is grilled on the same grill. As a result there was not much for her to choose from. Being I was the one that recommended the restaurant I felt pretty bad that she had to order a salad for dinner. In these times where peoples allergies are a concern I was surprised at the response to her question regarding the preparation of the dishes.

Food is reliably very good and we had the steak that was perfectly thick and lean and served hot. We were greeted nicely at the front desk and John the waiter was attentive, well- kempt, enthusiastic, helpful and filled the water glasses constantly. He's very good. Utensils and plates were clean and I would recommend the restaurant for any and all occasions. One negative comment - other diners were very loud due to the seating proximity. Not much you can do about that.

We chose George Martins for a friend's dinner (for 4) based on open table and yelp reviews. Everyone we encountered was very polite, cheerful and accommodating. We had 7pm reservations and were seated when we arrived early. It is a casual pub atmosphere and just a bit noisy for me, although we were able to enjoy our company and hold conversation. Our waitress was wonderful and didn't rush us to order .. and we took our time 'catching up' before looking at the menu! Salads were very fresh and i found no wilted greens (my pet peeve), dressings perfect and not overbearing. Popovers were Delian and served with 3 toppings, a butter, humus and honey butter. We had char, swordfish and rib eye and everyone was very satisfied with their selection. The rib eye perfectly seasoned and cooked. The fish was fresh and both deserve recommendation. We lingered over coffee and a shared dessert (not memorable) and again, were not rushed.

WE HAD A PROBLEM WITH OUR FOOD BEING DELIVERED TO THE WRONG TABLE. THIS MADE OUR WAIT FOR FOOD DELIVERY A BIT LONG. HOWEVER, SUZANNE AND HER CAPABLE STAFF TOOK CARE OF US ROYALLY- THEY PAID FOR A ROUND OF DRINKS AND ONE OF OUR STEAKS!THEY TRULY KNOW HOW TO TREAT A CUSTOMER AND THE FOOD IS SO GOOD, WE DID NOT MIND THE LONG WAIT. IF YOU WANT A REALLY GOOD MEAL WITH GREAT SERVICE-THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU!

We were in for dinner this Friday with an out of town couple. Our experience was outstanding. The service was top notch, but I do have to highlight the food. My mustard and pretzel salmon was like nothing I’ve ever had before. Incredible! My husband had the Short Ribs which were tender and delicious. Compliments to the chef. We will be back to try some more of their diverse menu.

We are huge fans of this restaurant and came for NYE- party of 8. Food was excellent and the staff accommodated dietary requests. Our only disappointment was that it was a limited holiday menu and it didn’t include the GM Skirt Steak - also 3 of us ordered the Seafood Trio and they ran out of scallops. Otherwise highly recommend!
