    George Martin has three restaurants in Rockville Centre. This one takes reservations, but is more like an upscale sports bar. Parking can be difficult since the area is chock full of restaurants and the restaurant is across the street from a movie theatre. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food is good, as is the service. The place is somewhat on the loud side. The crusted salmon, short ribs were both excellent. The tacos were just OK.

    I made my reservation for 8:45PM & the restaurant closed at 9:00PM. It was very disappointing that the time slot was even available so close the the closing time.

    Food was great. The quesadilla was unique flavor and I loved the thin crust÷ I was hoping he had done something about the ceiling from previous restaurant. Too noisy...conversation from surrrounding tables is too loud...

    This location has been a staple for us for years back to Grillfire. Excellent service and food. Good value and great ambiance. A great stop for dinner before a movie (we saw Mission Impossible across the street). Just make your reservation on Open Table and you're ready to go.

    I have said it before- this is my favorite steak house in the area!! A hidden gem in Rockville Centre. The menu has something for everyone. I am partial to the steaks! My wife loves the filet!! I alternate between the various choices! The service is up beat and the price point very reasonable. Also the bacon wrapped shrimp is a must have.

    We went here for Father's Day brunch. Food looked & tasted great. Staff was very nice & accurate. However, I ordered sweet potato waffles that didn't taste like sweet potato but it still tasted great for a regular waffle. It took a bit long for food to arrive. Most likely because there was only 1 gentlemen serving the food until about 12 (reservation was for 11) but it certainly wasn't due to his lack of speed & he moved very fast.

    What a horrible experience we had for Mother's Day Brunch. First off, the brunch menu usually includes a drink but that was not the case on Mother's Day. Wouldn't you want to have an extra special menu on that day instead of a mediocre one? Strike 1. Everyone received their food on time but mine was ice cold which meant it had been sitting for a while before it was served to me. We were a party of 4 and only 1 liked their food. Strike 2. Had to ask for coffee refills and water 3 times but to no avail. Finally got it when I asked the manager. Strike 3. The manager felt bad and was nice enough to comp dessert and remove my cold entrée from the bill. Needless to say, we will never be back.

    This place has an absolutely delicious burger. Price is a touch on the steep side (their house burger is about $17) but considering the amount of food you're getting and the overall quality, it's well-worth it. Ambience is very vibrant and on a Friday or Saturday night by 7-3:30pm the place is high volume and high energy. They have a great promo where if you're seeing or saw a movie at the theater across the street and present your ticket stub (or in my case an e-ticket), you can get %20 off the bill up to $10. Great local business partnership tactic. In the summer the storefront windows of this place fold out and gives it a very open feel. Beautiful Edison filament bulb fixtures decorate the ceiling and give the restaurant a very rustic vibe. Full service bar and small but nice local beer selection. I highly recommend making a reservation in advance as it gets very busy. Overall, great place and great option for parties between 2-6 people (speaking from a customer comfort standpoint).
