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 silver butter knife steak dinner. Garlic toast is out of this world! They brought us a dessert on the house to help us celebrate our anniversary. It’s a great venue for a celebration.

    This was everything we could have hoped for to help us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! Suburb food and service-it was memorable. Looking forward to a return.

    If you want to experience an old fashioned 50s steak house, this place is for you. I try to find this place in every city I visit. Before I tell you about the steak, we’ll start with the accompaniment dishes. Au gratin potatoes, browned in their own ramekin. Just cheesy enough and perfectly cooked. Next was a surprise vegetable dish. Creamed corn sounds so simple, not worthy of a mention. Well these were not your typical kernels. They were expertly combined with pablano peppers and the subtlety of that additional flavor made this corn stand out. I had the New York strip steak. I asked for it to be cooked rare. It’s been hard recently to find a chef that understands what rare actually means. Well I can tell you that the chef on the grill at Murray’s knows exactly what it means. It ranks in the top 5 steaks I have had in the last ten years or so. Thank you Amy for the great service. You made me laugh. I always appreciate that. When in Minneapolis, go to Murray’s. You won’t regret it

    A classic steak house that did not disappoint. We had the Chateaubriand for Two and it was prepared beautifully. The au jus was just a tad salty for us. Shrimp cocktail was an excellent opener and our wine selections very nice. The service was excellent and the ambience, sans piano, very relaxing.

    We were visiting Minneapolis and our Uber driver recommended Murray’s. Our driver had lived in the area for more than 50 years and we loved his description of the longtime locally loved family owned restaurant and the impeccable service guests receive. We are so thankful we tried it! Absolutely the best dining experience of our trip! From the service and the wine, salad, and steak … just WOW! Perfection!

    A classic. All great...our only comment was that it was pretty salty, but think that is the point.

    Service as excellent. Food was not great. For upscale restaurant, was very disappointed with the taste of the food. Side note, there was a very unpleasant Oder upon entry to the restaurant.
