Martin's Tavern Restaurant Review

: In business since 1933, this is a venerable DC institution. With its dark-paneled booths and walls, smoky atmosphere, Tiffany-style lights, soft jazz, and waitstaff dressed in old-fashioned garb, Martin's suggests an America from another era. Very much a favorite drinking place, attracting many DC notables, Martin's sticks with its all-American menu. Many order sandwiches, soups and salads. But there are more expensive meals here, too, featuring a fair number of seafood dishes (try the oysters Rockefeller), plus steaks, and a solid brunch menu. Come to drink, sure, and mull over the day's events, but plan on tucking into a big American meal. If you come for dinner, you may end up spending pretty big bucks, but for sandwiches, soups, and salads, this place is a drinking man's dream destination.
