Consistently delicious and well prepared food. Staff is very accommodating. I've been here dozens of times for both lunch and dinner and the food has always exceeded expectations. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The menu looked great but the food was disappointing. We had the crab cake for an appetizer and it had a very strange consistency. The top was rubbery and could not be cut. And the crab cake consistency was very dense and pasty - very strange. For my entree I had chicken Francese which was tasty but overloaded with sauce. Disappointing.

This place is EXACTLY what the Martinsville/ Bridgewater area needs! Great cocktails, eclectic menu and friendly/ competent staff. Best part? SO reasonably priced! I had the $34.95 3-course Surf & Turf dinner offered on Monday nights. WHAT!?! 3 courses for $34.95 with the entree being a 4oz filet and 4oz lobster tail. Yeah man, I'm in :) Their octopus app special is also a winner.

I've been searching for my very own "Cheers" bar my entire life. A place I love to visit for the conversation/ laughs with consistently good food/ drink that doesn't break the bank. A place where everyone knows my name... Martinsville Tavern might very well be my "Cheers". Enthusiastically recommend!

Excellent food. The mussels are always our favorite but I had the Bronzino as well - it was incredibly fresh, perfectly cooked and the portion size was great. Best of all was our server Nicole. Two weeks ago she was our bar tender and she remembered us! She's outgoing and funny and makes the entire dinner a great experience - not to mention that all of her recommendations were spot on!

Sat in front section, killed 3 flies. Ordered drinks. They took about 20 mins to come. They did apologize that they couldn’t find brand vodka. Waitress said she would bring bread as drink order was taken. Never came, said again as she brought drinks. Never came. I finally asked busboy. Needless to say 6:15 reservation. Got out of there at 8:10. As a neighboring table got steak well as was supposed to be MR . They sent back. Then had to get up and get check. I know it’s hard to find help now a days. And I was patient. Not a good 1st impression.

The food and atmosphere is very good. It was very busy so the owner himself was waiting on us and he was very honest did his best. We were not in any hurry so it was fine. The live music is very nice.

At Martinsville Tavern you will get 5-star (but NOT STUFFY) service. You will feel welcomed and treated like you are the star guest at your best friend's home. Food is excellent, served in interesting ways, well-portioned and filling! My family and I loved it!

The Martinsville Tavern was a surprise, as we needed to find a restaurant near an event we were attending. Our table on the front porch area was quite nice, and the service was good and attentive. We both had the wedge salad with excellent blue cheese dressing and bacon bits. My wife ordered the cod, which was cooked perfectly, and was quite good. I ordered the hanger steak, which had been marinated, and it was very tender, and quite surprising. The potatoes were a bit undercooked, and the spinach side could have used a bit more seasoning, but otherwise a very good meal. Parking can be a challenge, as well as entering and exiting as their driveway is right at a traffic light.

A little crowded but service was very good and fast. I only wish they would offer more vegan options since we have a vegan in our group and it would be nice if this place was a better option for us.

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.
