Way too much salt in the mashed potatoes. Their "Brick Chicken" was uninspired and uninspiring.

We always enjoy our time at Paul Martin's. We ended up ordering some items off of the happy hour menu and some from the regular menu. We will keep this restaurant in our rotation.

The food was amazing, especially the warm butter cake! Very good! Out waitress was great and she was nice and did her job very well. The area (indoors) was very cold. I almost began to shake with it being so cold there. I'll wait until warmer days or the return of the summer months before I go back. Other than the cold, I really love this place.

The food was outstanding and the service was great. Could definitely tell they are stretched a little bit thin as the table was sticky and drinks took a little bit to come out, but they are definitely doing their best to ensure a great dining experience. The manager was present helping his staff every step of the way.

This place tried, but totally missed the mark. The steak was sup par for $45 (prime rib). My husband ordered medium rare, and they brought out a medium steak. The waiter brought a replacement that was even more well done, which my husband just decided to eat because we felt bad sending it back a second time. The cut was no great, and other than the seasoning, there was nothing exceptional about this steak.

Husband and I were just out for a Sunday afternoon date, decided to try something new to us. Cannot speak highly enough, such a nice atmosphere, wonderful food (the spinach artichoke dip is seriously the best I’ve had) and our server, Jeremiah, was so sweet and so helpful! We will definitely come back, thanks for an incredible experience!

Also side note, their COVID protocols made me feel safe and able to enjoy my meal without any worry.

Their spinach artichoke dip is the best I've ever had from any restaurant. I ordered the chicken dinner. My chicken was a little under cooked but they immediately started on another plate, did not charge me & gave a free dessert. They made up for in in more ways than one
