I had never been to martin macks before though I walked by it almost everyday. I noticed they did some repainting and one day I was pretty thirsty so I decided to go have a drink. The bartender, I think it was craig, was very friendly and poured my beer and asked me if I wanted something off the menu, I declined, but that was untill I saw him bring a burger out to another couple beside me. It smelled great and it was quite a bigburger, so I ordered one to try. All I can say is wow. The burger was obviously freshly ground, and the bacon spread on top mixed with the cheddar, was a total mouth waterer. It also had a spicy sauce that complimented the flavors nicely. It was very filling, and cooked at a perfect medium. Since then I've gone in and tried the calamari, and the italian sandwich. While the burger still remains my fave menu item so far, the calamari, though a small portion was absolutly amazing, and the italian pork sandwich was great as well. Def on of my new fave places to go when I want my moneys worth,great food, and friendly staff. Get in there and try it!

I wil just say it. That was the best burger in a town crowded with great ones. It was cooked to a perfect medium rare and it had that deep earthy flavor that çan only come from freshly ground cuts of beef. I hesitate writing this because soon this place will become to çrowded for me. Other stellar items were the calamari, wiñgs, fish and chips and last but not least the pizzas. We had one of the Chefs specials, a macaroñi and cheese with spinach that was decadently rich. We split a cobbler where the fruit tasted lile it had just been picked. Our server was earnest but overwhelmed. We are so happy that there is finally someplace to eat in the Haight.

I was raised in restaurants since I was a wee lad back East. There were 3 basic food groups in my neighborhood; Irish, Italian and e'rybody elses. I've been to many Irish pubs around S.F. and the East Bay. This is The One... that we will return to again & again whene'er we're in the City. As well, stay at the Stayan St. Hotel [another to be repeated S.F. stop!] On our only night in town, we ventured down one side of Haight St then up the other looking for a nice place to eat and rest. For various Reasons, we passed-by many little hole-in-the-wall eateries... and way too many seedy dope dens. (the 70's r back with vengence) Martin Mack's looked good on the way down, and even better on the way back. The menu is just Simplicity defined. Specialize in a few items then let 'em speak for themselves. My wife had the Irish nachos and I had the Real Irish Sheppard's Pie. This is the real deal. I am spoiled. The only better sheppards pie comes from MY kitchen!. Erin go Braugh! @ Martin Macks!
