Overall very good service and food. However, reservation was at 7:15, and didn’t get seated at our table until 7:50. Seemed like everyone else at the bar was seated before us even though they arrived later.

Dress code seems lacking. I was surprised to see a young man wearing a basketball uniform and a young man wearing a warm-up suit with a backward baseball cap.

Love Murray’s. The staff is always very attentive and the food is second to none. The Silver butter knife steak is the star, but all their steaks are truly melt in your mouth. It’s our go to for special occasions

Another great meal at Murray’s! We were greeted attentively, seated immediately in the Sid Hartman booth, and Dani the server took great care of us the rest of the evening. The chateaubriand was done perfectly as always. Returning for New Years Eve if the pandemic allows us.

Server was great! We ordered the signature chateaubriand medium rare; it was very tasty but definitely medium to medium well - big deal for an established steakhouse to get that wrong. The French onion soup was underwhelming. Again, flavor good but lacked anything special. For the price, everything should’ve been excellent but was sub-par. Disappointing to see how casual they’ve become. People wearing baseball hats and jerseys. Bar seemed more like a local hang vs. a classy, old school establishment.

Murray's is not inexpensive, or even reasonable, but the experience is always top-notch with great food, great service and well-made cocktails. No one leaves thinking it was a great value, but everyone enjoys the experience.

The Silver Butter Knife Steak for two is, in my opinion, the best steak in town and the service is never less than outstanding.

We have been celebrating major milestones at Murray's for years and this time it was our 32nd Anniversary. I'm looking forward to the next one, and I hope we will be back to Murray's once again for our 33rd.

The meal although presentation was excellent, I found it to be over salted, even after requesting lower salt content

Murray’s steakhouse definitely did not disappoint! We tried both the Ribeye and Kansas Dry Aged Striploin and both were grilled to perfection! Crusty on the outside and pink on the inside. The decor and ambience was classy and servers are attentive. 5 stars from me!
