I have been eating at George Martin's for many years. I've enjoyed every single meal. For the first time I tried the roast chicken. It was tasty, but a bit overcooked. Since I've never had it before I don't know if this was a "one off" or not. I think it was. I certainly would not hesitate to go back as the food is typically done perfectly. Onion soup is outstanding. Our waiter was great!

GEORGE MARTIN THE ORIGINAL IS A TRUE GEM ON LONG ISLAND'S SOUTH SHORE. WE ATE THERE LAST SATURDAY NIGHT AND WAS TREATED TO A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE. SUZANNE RUNS A TIGHT SHIP WITH EXCELLENT FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE. I DO NOT THINK I HAVE EVER HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE AT THIS WONDERFUL RESTAURANT. IF YOU HAVE BEEN THERE YOU KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT AND IF YOU NEVER TRIED IT, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO AND ENJOY!!

George Martin is never disappointing. Food is fresh, the special Cod was outstanding. Service is always friendly and professional.
I took a friend for a birthday celebration and fully enjoyed our time.

We had a wonderful server named Karen who, when she saw I was looking at the menu for vegetarian options, enthusiastically recommended something that was NOT on the menu. It was the most wonderful veggie burger and everyone at the table LOVED it, even the meat eaters. Just splendid.

the food was terrible. they don't care about food allergies. everything is cooked on the same grill. my daughter did not eat because she told them she had shellfish allergy and was told that all the food is cooked on one grill. terrible!!!

Simply the best! We’ve been going to GM for 24 years, but hadn’t been there in the last 2 since moving to the city. What a treat to go back and meet up with friends Friday night. Starting with Annie behind the bar making the best manhattans and martinis and always a delight, we knew it was the same place. I ordered my favorites, sesame tuna appetizer and the petite filet mignon, while others enjoyed the pork chop special. The food was fantastic, and you never feel rushed there. For as many steakhouses we’ve been to in NYC, George Martin is still the best, and, by the way, a quick ride to Rockville Centre.

SUZANNE watches over a wonderful dining experience. The service, as always , was first class and the food was outstanding. I do not know why people travel so far when George Martin is so close in Rockville Centre. Go - you will be glad you did!!

Food was delicious. We always enjoy the GM salad. One of our party enjoyed the seafood dish. My husband and friend liked the rigatoni a la vodka and I had the burrata Chicken parmigiana. Very good.

We hadn’t eaten there in a while and forgot forget how much we liked it. We liked it so much on Thursday, we’re going back tonight tonight( four days later.)
The popovers are amazing and food and variety are impressively varied.
The prices are a little high as we eat out often but if you go out infrequently, well worth it.
We were there on a Thursday night and it was very noisy but that means the restaurant is busy and business is good. Next time, we’ll go out the beginning of the week when I imagine it will be less crowded.
