We give out restaurant recommendations daily here at Visit Morgan County, but we understand that sometimes you need some impartial third party opinions from someone who doesn't work to promote the area. Millions of travelers trust customer review sites like Yelp when they're in an unfamiliar town or city and need to find a great meal to enjoy. We're no different - we often look to the "experts" who write public reviews to decide which dining choices to try out when the options are plentiful and our time is limited.

Martinsville is the county seat of Morgan County and the largest community in the county, and there are certainly some great dining opportunities to discover, many with a view of the beautiful red brick Morgan County Courthouse! We're always happy to provide personalized recommendations for your family or group, but here's a look at what the many reviewers on Yelp have to say about where to eat in Martinsville, based on their top 10 recommended restaurants. Be sure to leave your own review after you visit them!
