Everything was lovely as usual. My only disappointment is that we were given a less than desirable table while other "sunny" tables remained unoccupied. I understand the process of assigning tables to waiters for even distribution of work, and tips. Therefore we did not complain. But, I saw a couple request a different table that the small one they were taken to, next to us, in a dimly lit corner; and they were not accomodated. The waiter even made a "flip" comment to them as they were leaving the restaurant. That whole chain of events was not good.
Our experience, our waiter, our food was good.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love Murphy's. aI always love Murphy's. a bit too loud for conversation, but food and service are top notch3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBrisket sandwich was great.Brisket sandwich was great.

The wine was very good and it's nice they have a wine shop right in the restaurant. No complaints!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for a Saturday NiteThe food didn't live up to expectations. It was good but not much more than that. It didn't seem to be as good as it was in my old college days iat GA Tech. Then again my tastes have improved or back then anything outside of Britain Hall tasted excellent.
Only issue I had was having to wait 30 minutes for an 8:30 reservation for 4.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed dinner.We thoroughly enjoyed dinner.

Parking problems have been solved with free valet service. The food was, as always, very good -- we both had the roasted chicken -- quite tender and served with a melange of various mushrooms. Our server was the best, often anticipating our needs. Quite a pleasant dining experience.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWent here to eat dinner onWent here to eat dinner on a girls' weekend with a friend. The service was great, the food was almost great. Drinks were spot on. I really did enjoy my meal, just not as much as I enjoyed my meal at Local Three the next day.
Our original plan here was to order a few small plates to share and then get dessert. We got the cheese plate and each got a salad. They were all delicious. Then we got greedy and decided to order a main course too. I got the seared scallops and honestly it was just pretty good to me.
Dessert was great. I got the trio and only stopped eating because I literally had to.
Good experience and meal, great service.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
