Wonderful, imaginative menu, perfectly prepared food, fun and comfortable atmosphere, and friendly service. What's not to love? I had an ahi tuna taco special, which was one of the best meals out I've had in recent memory. My companions' meals were equally good. With family nearby, we'll be back soon!

Everyone knows about the great breakfasts but lunch is awesome also and well worth the trip!! A great varied menu and of course the complete breakfast menu. Make certain to try Mad Martha's for lunch.

Has been a while since I've been to Mad Martha's. Other than the decor, not too much has changed ... which is good! Was here for breakfast today with a friend. The place is entirely open, so you can see what's going on in the kitchen. The walls are now painted to look like beachy shingles. I like the new... More

The food was incredible and super worth the wait. The only negative was a big one: the flies! The restaurant didn't do a good job of ventilating and eliminating flies. We were constantly swatting away flies throughout our meal.

Very unique breakfast joint! Something for everyone including kids. You can even BYOB...for bloodies or mimosas. Love their corn beef hash...the best ever.

We ate here for late breakfast. Burrito was very mild, but healthy ingredients. Much fresh and local foods. My crab cake egg ("crabby patty")with whole grain toast was delicious ; artistically arranged fruit side order had six different ones. Egg plate with good home fries . Home cooked. Small old fishing cottage fixed up to cheerful interior. Funky and right... More

Found out about the restaurant in North Shore Magazine. Had a Make Your Own omelette with caramelized onions, artichoke hearts, portabello mushrooms and goat cheese. It came with delicious home fries and grilled sweet bread. It took a while for the waitress to get to us, but we were satisfied once she came over. My wife liked the herbivore omelette... More
