“Down Home Thanksgiving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

Folks, if you enjoy down home cooking; greens, limas, catfish, pork chops, fried chicken, homemade pie, and the like, and you like your portions generous, then everyday at Martin's feels like being at mama's house for Thanksgiving. Everything (including the pies) is made fresh daily on site. Servers are friendly and efficient. An extremely affordable and family friendly.

“Wonderful Sunday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Martin's is a classic destination for traditional Southern cooking in Montgomery. When your waitress brings a basket of cornbread that's this delicious, you know you're in for a treat.

Sometimes the wait for your food can be a little long when they're crowded, but it's well worth it. They're crowded because the food is so excellent!

I also like Martin's because of the diverse clientele. It's an enjoyable, down-home dining experience that's welcoming to everybody. I've eaten there many times, and will be back every chance I get when in Montgomery.

Only downside is they're closed on Saturdays. But everybody deserves a day off once in a while!

“Southern Food at It's Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

What a treat. The fried chicken was fresh, moist and perfectly fried. With two large pieces of chicken and three generous sides PLUS cornbread or biscuits you won't leave hungry. It was the perfect southern meal!

“Authentic home cookin' southern eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

On a recommendation of the curator of the Fitzgerald Museum, we went for lunch at Martin's. This is an old time, authentic, southern family restaurant!

The fried chicken was mouth watering and the pies were the best we've ever seen!

Be sure to stop by when in Montgomery.

“None Better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is my favorite restaurant in Montgomery, been going there for nearly 35 years. Absolutely THE BEST fried chicken in the State. Always crunchy, juicy and hot, never greasy. Vegetables are very good and the cornbread muffins are heaven. Hardly ever have room for dessert and have to take some home. Two breasts, 3 vegs and sweet iced tea for about $10, can't beat it.
