Welcome to Murray's Restaurant. Minneapolis' original restaurant for steak since 1946 & home of the award winning Silver Butterknife Steak dinner for two. Also known for mouth watering garlic toast, Hickory Smoked shrimp appetizer, and home baked pies. Well into its third generation of family ownership, Murray's stands out among local and out of town diners alike as a true Twin Cities landmark & continues to provide the best in food and service as it did in 1946.

Great night out for the boyfriend’s birthday. Staff was excellent. Steaks were perfect. Brussels Sprouts were under cooked and hard. The tiny little Bundt cake they brought out was adorable and delicious.

We have always gotten the silver butter knife steak but we didn’t think it was as good this time. We will probably order something different in the future. Salad, potatoes, soup, service, all were excellent!

Wonderful experience. Silver butter knife and lobster tail were perfect. Disappointed no valet, but given the times, meal and service totally made up for it.

Murrays is one of our favorite places and we were so excited to return after quarantine. They did not disappoint. Service was fabulous and the food was out of this world, as usual.

Thank you for a phenomenal dining experience.

See you soon!

It's great to have Murray's back in business. A nice crowd for a Wednesday, but still very well spaced. I can say without hesitation: the meal and experience was perfect. A delightful server with very attentive service. A wedge salad for the ages - the best I have ever had. Wonderful loaded hash browns and delicious creamed corn. We are not big meat eaters and split the 8 oz sirloin - one of the best I have ever tasted. Of course the garlic toasts and breadzels remain classic. An exquisite raspberry pie was the crowning touch. Prices are extremely reasonable for such a priceless experience.
Thanks Murray's !!!!!

Every. Single. Time. Murrays does not disappoint. Their first week open since the pandemic, and everything was spot on. They took measures to insure safety, without being uncomfortable or over bearing. The new york strip and walleye were delicious as always. And the martinis! Well lets just say that they're as good as the steaks. Our server, Ricardo was fantastic. He was very welcoming and attentive to our table. Even though he had other tables, he continued to check back throughout the whole evening. His warm and gracious manner was a gift that made our time at Murrays even more special. We're so glad they're back, and will continue to choose Murrays over any other twin cities steakhouse!

We had a fantastic dining experience at Murray's, on June 12th. The Food was incredible, the restaurant was immaculate and the service was outstanding.

Our Waiter - Joe or "Joey" - explained all of the Covid precautions, as soon as we were seated. We ordered drinks and reviewed the menu on our phones, no problem. The steak was incredible, and all of the side dishes were freshly prepared and delightful.

It was great to see Tim & Jill Murray greeting customers, and checking on our dinner.

This is still our favorite Steak-House in the Twin Cities. Murray's has weathered the storms, and is back-in-business with a fabulous menu, great service and the tradition of an outstanding dining experience.

Consistently one of the great places to dine in the Twin Cities - yes, it's expensive, but you can always expect a great meal, fine beverages and attentive service.
