Honestly, disappointed in food. The presentation was very lacklustre, and the food was just ok. Actually the loaded hashbrowns were quite good, the steak, shrimp cocktail so-so. The ceasar salad disappointing too-felt like it was prepared and just sat in a fridge to chill.

Had another great meal here, I love steakhouses and I will have too say that this one for consistency passed Mannys. Nothing is as good as Mannys hash browns, but Murrays beats them on a great meal consistently. Awesome value for an early bird, 3 course for $30. Great app, bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp....had a NY Strip waygu, it was phenomenal. Thanks Murrays

I hit up Murray's every time I come to Minneapolis. My boss and I have a special affinity for it as we used it for a special occasion back in 2008. The food is delicious, the service is impeccable.

I took my mother to Murray’s for an early birthday meal. This was our first time dining there. We started with cocktails. The garlic toast and pretzel in the bread basket were a nice start prior to the French onion soup and Caesar salad. We had the Chateaubriand for two, it was done to perfection. The wait staff were superb and readily available taking great care of us during our dining experience. We took dessert to go as we also had left overs. Murray’s was fantastic! Thank you for such a lovely evening!

The food and service was wonderful! Friendly, welcoming and very open about answering questions you may have about the menu. Great location for a romantic date. The atmosphere of the dining room is very old-school, but still not outdated, and even when they were full you could still carry a conversation without feeling like you were trying to shout. The women's restroom also had actual towels to dry your hands! Who does that?! Definitely would love to come back.

Amazing service. Great food. Never disappointed. The special they had was a bone in steak. It was cooked perfectly. Great texture. I did find the steak to be a bit under seasoned and lacking in flavor a bit.

The salad. Sides ( risotto and mushrooms ) along with the garlic toast were on point and amazing. The service is always a step above and spectacular

Our party of 6 all ordered different steaks and every one was fantastic. The bread basket is to die for and the 4 sides we had were superb ( mac n cheese, loaded hash downs, corn and my favorite the green beans). Our server, Dylan, was warm, helpful and professional and offered some great recommendations. While the prices are high, our experience was perfect and the 51 year old birthday boy was completely happy with Murray’s and wants to go back again before his next birthday.

Four of us, including two piscetarians (basically, vegetarians who eat fish) whom I would have thought to be the LAST people to dine at Murray's Steakhouse, had a fantastic dinner and excellent pre-dinner cocktails in the bar. The food was to die for, the service friendly and unobtrusive, and the valet parking a little pricey ($12) but certainly worth it on a cold evening. And our meatless friends said their fish dishes were the best they'd ever had! My friend and I had the Silver Butter Steak Knife which is every bit as marvelous as it's been for the last several decades. I wanted to marry it.

We remember the old Murray's, which had waitresses who had been there for years, classic red banquettes, polite service, and good food at a fair price. This visit for two family birthdays was a disappointment, since the food was quite expensive but not exceptional in quality and the service was not up to par. While some of the old atmosphere remains, we missed the old Murray's. At our visit, the steak was of average quality but carried a very high price tag. The "hickory-smoked chicken" had no discernible smoked flavor, and the entire dish was drowned in an unpleasantly sweet sauce. The cocktails were excellent though over-priced ($19 for a Manhattan!). The wedge salad was good, as was the garlic toast. We waited a long time for coffee and dessert to be offered, and to pay our bill. Sorry Murray's, but for the price, there are better places to celebrate a special occasion.

My wife and I have been going to Murray's for our anniversary every year for 16 years and never have been disappointed until this year. It may have been because there was a Viking's game and a lot of fans were there before the game but the service was slow and the food was not up to regular Murray standards. Very noisy and it was hard to have a conversation without raising your voice. Disappointing but we will likely be back and pick a night when there is no game downtown.

The Wagyu beef was the best, most flavorful steak I have ever tasted, hands down! Prepared to perfection, oh so tender and mouthwatering. The lemon/artichoke/ spinach risotto had a slight hint of mint, a result of preserved Morrocan lemons, was fabulous. Excellent food and wait staff.

Food was ok but not the greatest when compared to other steakhouses in that same category of fine dining. Definitely need to invest in steak knives! Friendly knowledgeable staff though.
