Martin's Restaurant - Montgomery

Guest Author - Nick Greene

Martin's Restaurant is a family owned restaurant in Montgomery, AL that has been in business since the 1930s. They serve "Homestyle Cooking" southern and American favorites with a "meat and three" style lunch. Their location may have changed over the years, but apparently not the quality of food nor the loyalty of their customers, especially the Sunday after church crowd. You'll find Martin's in a shopping center near the The Montgomery Country Club today. It is in close proximity to Huntingdon College, Alabama State University, Jackson Hospital, Old Cloverdale and the Mulberry District.

Open for lunch and dinner, Martin's serves "comfort food" in a relaxed casual dining atmosphere. While their menu, which changes daily, features everything from Fried Catfish and Salmon Croquettes to Baked Meatloaf and Pork Chops, Martin's Restaurant is famous for their fried chicken, which brings diners back regularly. It's one of the food items they have received local awards for. They were featured on Turner South for their turnip greens and homemade cornbread; in the book "100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die"; in the "Garden and Gun Magazine" and in the Wall Street Journal in 2009.

Martin's has some well loved side dishes, too, but besides fried chicken, they are most famous for their pies, which have been featured in "Travel and Leisure Magazine". Frommer's called them "legendary!" and recommend the coconut cream pie.

Although some patrons have complained about the crowd and having to wait for a table, that generally is taken for a good sign of the quality of the food. Service is generally fast and friendly.

Martin's Restaurant also has take-out food for individuals and groups and has a catering menu. Prices are reasonable and they provide complimentary ice tea or coffee with all dine-in meals. Martin's is closed on Saturdays. Next time you are in the area, this place is definitely worth a look.
