Food was surprisingly good. Service was decent. Noise level was high, especially due to the amusing bird's nest overhead / next to us. We liked the layout of the restaurant and attention paid to us by the manager. Would certainly recommend.

My husband and I went to Martinsville Tavern for the first time this past Saturday night. The pleasant experience started off with valet parking and being seated fairly quickly. Our waitress was very polite and attentive, the food was delicious! I had the bacon wrapped monkfish and my husband had the bronzino. Both dishes were steaming hot on arrival and tasted delicious. I highly recommend this establishment and we will go there again in the coming months.

Not a fan of valet. Had a bad experience awhile back with a different entity. Every restaurant should give you the option to park your own car like other restaurants do especially in this day and age…The parking lot was not even full yet as we were there at 4:30p. I would still give them the tip! As we were waiting to be seated, there was a host on the phone and a waitress appear to be seemingly busy-after he was done, he didn’t even acknowledged us and just walked away. However, ‘twas compensated by our lovely, pleasant waitress. The ambience was rustic and cozy. The sizzling pork chop was dry and hard to cut, loaded with gravy and/or sauce that was rather bland to my taste. Fettuccine with bolognese meat sauce was delicious. The raspberry cobbler was sinfully delicious.

Great food, service was more than accommodating. The place just seemed to have a strange, frantic vibe about it. It could have been just an off night. Certainly willing to give it another chance bc of the food and the kind and accommodating staff.

Delicious dinner with friends from out of town who could not stop raving about the food and atmosphere. COVID safe and very friendly staff from the valet, to waitress, and everyone with whom we interacted! As always, Drinks were amazing, Pasta dishes are served in pans to the table and salads were fresh and tasty! One of my favorite local places and highly recommend it for everyone: families and groups are welcomed and accommodated!

There was a hair in our food and the waiter suggested it was ours, we all have long curly hair, while the short straight hair intertwined in the pasta looked more like his. While we did get another plate that we had to take home we never even got an apology. There was also a baby shower in the room next to ours and the door kept swinging open, it was quite loud. I would like to give this place another chance as it has potential but the handling of our mishap left me with a bad taste...

This was our first visit to the Martinsville Tavern...the first of many more.

From our welcome at reception through our entire stay this was a very enjoyable experience.

The service is great, warm, friendly and knowledgeable. There’s a great deal of pride in the house and the staff makes the entire dining experience really enjoyable and fun.

Oh, I should mention the food is quite good. Portions are reasonable, nit overwhelming, and the tastes are fantastic.

We shared the house meatballs and a salad to start...very nice, subtle flavors, just right!

My cod was perfectly preferred...a crisp crust and perfectly tender.

I also recommend you leave room for dessert...many great options, we shared the peanut brittle sundae...incredible.

This is a must try...

While the hanger steak was as delicious as its reputation, nothing else about this restaurant works. Our service was atrocious, from being completely abandoned by our server (I guess she didn't want us to order more drinks), to having two separate people spill drinks at the table and not apologize either time (I had to lend my napkin for the second fiasco and the waitress neither thanked me nor replaced it), there is absolutely nothing that would persuade me to go back ever at all. I mean, I even had to get someone to flag down the valet parking attendant since he too, like everyone else on staff at this place, wasn't interested in doing his job. Must be a terrific place to work that you have so little to do.

This was a business lunch and we sat in their patio area. Unfortunately, with the windows open, the road noise was excessive but still, it was a nice day.

I ordered the wedge salad and their specialty burger and both were excellent. I would get them again!

My colleague had the clam chowder and tacos. The clam chowder was more like potato soup but still, flavorful and the tacos were really good.

I'll be back for sure.
