Diner Reviews
  • "We, from the moment we entered Murray's, felt welcomed. The staff was very friendly, efficient, and professional. We also liked the fact we were greeted by the owner. We enjoyed our anniversary dinner with one of Murray's signature steaks, and a great choice on wine. It became a memorable experience for myself and my husband. Thank you Matt and Oscar."

  • "My husband and I dined at Murray's over two years ago while visiting Minneapolis as a couple for the first time. It was superb! When we made plans to attend a Twins game this summer, we made sure Murray's was on our list for dinner. The renovations were fantastic and the food was as memorable as the first time. We also tried the cheesecake to celebrate, it was divine. Thank you for making our trip to Minneapolis a truly memorable one."

  • "This couldn't have been nicer. From the bartender (Nick) when we walked in to our server (Sophia) during dinner. All were very knowledgeable with the menu (our first visit) and guided us through some of the best food I have ever eaten. Recommend the steak tartar and of course their signature steak. You can't go wrong."

  • "The food was very good, only complaint there was that the steak was salted too much, but otherwise perfect. It was very loud in the bar, but got a bit more quiet once in the main dining room. Would probably go there again"

  • "I made reservations at Murray's for my husband’s 50th birthday dinner. He had never been to Murrays before and I had not been in years, which I don't know why. It is now our new favorite restaurant in Minneapolis! The food was superb, the service was equally as pleasant and we truly had a beautiful evening."

  • "We originally tried to book the number one rated steakhouse downtown and it was full. Murray's was rated #2 and we got a late night opening luckily. It was AMAZING! The service, the cocktails, the waiter (TJ), and the food...all of it was superior. We love great food and service and Murray's exceeded our expectations. We were so impressed we went back the next night! Great place for fabulous steaks!"

  • "We celebrated my son's birthday at Murray's and it was the perfect place to do so. The quality of the steaks is legendary. The service is top-notch; very attentive and not snooty - very personable servers. There steaks are tender and flavorful, which is not news and why you go there!"

  • "My entire experience at Murray's was wonderful! We were greeted by two very friendly hostesses and seated right away. Our server was very knowledgable and the way he described the specials of the evening made me want to try them both! I ended up having the filet, and it was seasoned perfectly and melted in my mouth! One of the owners stopped by the table to greet us and make sure everything was to our liking. Another owner thanked us for coming and wished us a good night as we were leaving. This was our first dining experience at Murray's, and it surpassed our expectations!"

  • "My wife and I went to Murray's on her birthday. I had told Murray's in my reservation about my wife's birthday and that we had requested Marcia for our server if she was available. Marcia was available and she always does a superb job! We enjoyed talking to her as always and her attentiveness was great. After we had finished our dinner, Marcia brought my wife a small chocolate birthday cake! What a great surprise! As usual, all of our food and our cocktails were fabulous. We plan to come back soon."

  • "Restaurant was busy on a Friday evening but was very accommodating to give us a booth as we had requested. Murray's also pushed our reservation to an hour later when we were held up in traffic on our way into Minneapolis. Steaks were perfectly cooked and sides were generous portions. Great first time experience."

  • "In the past Murray's was one of "The Places" for Special Occasions. We were very disappointed & will not go back. My husband & one other man had Jackets on. There were shorts, T-Shirts & everything in between. Murray's has lost it's Class! Our Silver Butter Knife steak could barely be cut with our steak knives, certainly not a butter knife."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "If you like great steaks this is the place, by yourself or with someone else. This is a classic steakhouse, the ambiance is 1930's with a modern touch. The waitstaff are knowledgeable and attentive without being overbearing. The wine and other drinks list very good."

  • "We took a group of 10 (6 adults and 4 kids 7-12 yr.) to celebrate my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary. Because the adults had all been to Murray's several times in the past, we knew what to expect. They provided the quality to satisfy the foodie in me and my wife, the menu to keep everyone happy, the ambiance to keep my Dad happy-old school classy without him thinking he was in some chic foo-foo joint, which would have kept him yapping all night, and the service to effortlessly and properly provide a first-class dining experience for a party of 10. They accommodated our kids cheerfully, made my Mom feel special, and provided a great experience. Thank you Open Table and Murray's for making our special occasion effortless and memorable."

  • "It was a very nice dining experience. Our waiter was excellent, and took time with us without being overbearing. The seating was lovely and the room was beautiful. When we left a small, noisy child was seated at the next table, but we were finished and so the child's yelling did not affect us. The food was delicious."

  • "For a highly rated and rather expensive the restaurant was average at best. That includes the food as well as the service. We were disappointed and will not return. There are multiple choices for better restaurants in the immediate area to choose from. However, the hostess was very accommodating."

  • "It was a special occasion for us (26th Anniversary) and we were excited to dine at Murray's. The food was good, but not really spectacular for the amount of money. It was a nice place for a special occasion, but I can't see myself going back for just a dinner out. Our server was very nice and even brought us a complimentary dessert to celebrate our special occasion. Our server was very nice, but for the amount of $ we paid to dine there I would have expected that the young man that seated us would have pulled out my chair for me, but instead did a half circle around the table and basically pointed to the table and chairs as if to say - "there it is"."

  • "The food was overly salted. The carrots under cooked and creme-brulee overdone. The table was peppered along with the salad and not cleaned up The service was not up to par with the prices."
