From beginning to end, we had a lovely anniversary dinner. We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" and shown directly to our table. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Our drink order was taken and served promptly. We were asked if we wanted more of the excellent popovers. We had the sesame tuna wonton appetizer and the jaeger schnitzel. We ordered just coffee, because we were so full, but a beautifully presented lemon square with a Happy Anniversary sign came with it. Everyone from the hostesses, to the waiter and busboys were all lovely and the food was so delicious! Thank you George Martin for making our night so special!

We very much enjoyed our meal at George Martin. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent! It was a little noisy but I think that was because of the two at the table next to us who were quite loud. That was not the restaurant’s fault.

Our first dinner out in a very very long time. To say it was perfect is probably an understatement. We requested the outdoor seating as we are still not quite ready to be inside. It was very nice, heat lamps (it was a little chilly out) and all staff were still in masks. We started with my wife having the wedge salad and I had the soup special - a crock of onion soup with melted cheese. Heaven!!!! Also - the soup was piping hot - the way I like it! For mains, my wife had the swordfish special and I ordered a steak. Both were superb!! The steak was a perfect medium rare as ordered and very well seasoned.i also enjoyed the toasted broccoli. My wife loved. Her fish. I should add the cocktails were a generous pour and the service was excellent!! In addition to a very attentive wait staff, the manager and owner were making rounds welcoming diners and confirming everything was good. There is a reason this is one of my favorite restaurants.

The 5 star reviews for this place are extremely generous. My steak was over-cooked - medium well when I ordered medium rare. We had to chase down the waitress and remind for drinks. The martinis were good but I wouldn’t go back.

We were promptly seated for our 5:30 reservation on a Saturday night. Our server took our drink orders and delivered them very quickly.
We started with the Arugula salad and the Crunchy Sesame Tuna which were both outstanding…
Very light and fresh.
Actually, the salad might have been a special… it had small chunks of watermelon in it… and I don’t see that in the menu… It was very good considering it is mid May and not necessarily the height of watermelon season.
We then ordered the Steak special which was a 24 oz ribeye… which was cooked just right…
I prefer a thicker cut of steak vs a thin cut (this was about 1” thick) … but it was still very good.

We actually ordered dessert which is unusual for us…
And we ordered the rainbow cookie ice cream which was just ok… I wasn’t a fan of it…
But overall, a great dinner and our server was prompt and checked in a few times which was great.

I’ve been to the George Martin in Suffolk… and would like to try GrillFire and the Burger Bar.

The chopped meat quality was below average. Had quite of bit of gristle. My wife and daughter found their hamburger and meatloaf to be subpar because of it. In addition, being a vegetarian, there was only 1 vegetarian meal on the menu (butternut squash ravioli). Most likely will not return for dinner in the near future. Upside is I like the ambiance - tavern style is homey and pleasant

I was recommended this place by someone. He gave several places to try out but said this has to be the number 1 place I check out. I came here with my wife and family member for dinner during restaurant week.

The service was great, everyone was very friendly, the food was amazing. We all loved what we ordered. I would certainly go back here again in the near future.

Although the food and service was great the restaurant was very warm and super load sometimes I could not hear people talking right next to me. It was a warm day on Wednesday close to 80 and George Martin should of had the ac units turned on. It was the warmest day of the year and nobody expected it but that is no excuse.
