This is a classic old-time steakhouse. The service was excellent and the ribeye steak that I had is the best steak I can remember having. Everyone in our party of 4 loved their food and the overall experience. Very extensive wine list, especially reds, but with some nice whites as well.

I have eaten at a number of steak houses both in the Twin Cities and throughout the U.S. Murray’s is still tops! Excellent service, wonderful food, and improved ambiance since the remodel. They handle special occasions extremely well. Usually, the person being celebrated receives a delicious complimentary dessert. Of special note: The garlic toast melts in your mouth, and the way they age and flavor their beef is unequaled.

Both my guest and I enjoyed our starter bowls of onion soup and chili and our entrees. I am pleased your wait staff uniforms are pressed and that they are uniformed top to toe. All the staff appeared well groomed, neat and clean.

Offering milled pepper and automatically ensuring the coffee cups and water glasses are filled is important. I saved up to enjoy lunch at Murrays and compared to most other spots where I would have spent the same amount, you're tops.

Your menu is a good balance between substantive and lighter fare. Plates are nicely composed and your silverware is nicely made and doesn't gouge my fingers nor have bent or crooked tines.

I'll stop by tomorrow to purchase a gift certificate. best, tbb

Everything was great except the “special” bone in ribeye was way to fatty. I know it needs far for flavor, but not half of the whole cut.

First timers to Murray’s. We were visiting from out-of-town attending a concert at the Target Center and celebrating my wife’s birthday. Atmosphere, service, and especially the food were all great. We shared the chateaubriand and there was plenty. The tenderloin was cooked to perfection. The server brought a piece of chocolate cake to the table with toffee slivers to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The cake was unexpected and a perfect way to finish an exceptional dinner. We’ll definitely be returning.

We went before the Céline Dion concert. Hadn’t been there in years but thoroughly enjoyed it. Our server was very attentive and helpful about the menu. My husband had the filet and I had the KC strip. Both excellent. We shared a salad and the baked potato. It was perfect. I used to go with my parents many moons ago. The restaurant has been updated, of course, but the family hospitality is still there. Will definitely go again.

My wife and I had the "Early Dinner Special" (served between 4:30 and 6PM), and it was fabulous. Here's the menu:
Caesar or Mixed Green Salad
Top Sirloin or Broiled Salmon with Potato or Vegetable
Crème Brulee or Mango Coconut Bread Pudding
We had the 8 oz. Top Sirloin, and it was similar to a Filet Mignon; tender, juicy, delicious, and done as specified.

Obviously a great meal! And super expensive. The food was amazing, Dennis was a fabulous waiter. But $400 for dinner is way too much.

You can get valet right at the front door, which made it worry free to find a parking spot. A little pricey, but very nice!

Wonderful being greeted by third generation owner, Tim Murray. The steak and garlic toast are exceptional. It was our first time bringing the grandkids and they enjoyed the children’s menu. Our ten year old grandson also loved the Silver Butter Knife steak. This place is a classic for a reason, very consistently excellent food.

Murray's is excellent as always. They are positioned as an upscale steak house and that is what they deliver. The food and service was outstanding. We received a booth as requested in our reservation and had a very enjoyable time.

The best steaks period. Manny's is a scene but Murray's is the real deal. The food was great, the ambiance was old school cool and the service was flawless. Highly recommended.

There was only one bartender in the bar on a game night (TNF). The bartender had to make drinks for the service line and the bar. She tried her best but wasn’t able to keep up considering the demand (it took 20 mins for me to order a drink while sitting at the bar). This restaurant is considered a staple in the city and being an outer towner, I was a bit disappointed with the lack of service even though it wasn’t entirely her fault. With that being said, the drinks and pork chop once delivered were great.

It was a great steak house that had a great steak. It is pricey which makes it hard to say it is a great value but the steak was very good.

We enjoyed our dinner at Murray's. Service and ambiance were great as was most of the food! Only one complaint was shared by everyone at the table and that was the saltiness of the food. The garlic toast was almost inedible because of the salt and the steaks were saltier than expected (both couples ordered the Chateaubriand). I did see the note on the menu about salt, but since none of us is particularly sensitive to it, we didn't think we'd need to request no/low salt, but we will know for the future that we need to request they go easy on it. Not sure if there is a way to get less salty garlic toast or not, but that's not as big a deal as the steaks.

Overall, a nice evening and were happy with our visit to Murray's!

I will keep this review short and sweet. Arrive early to enjoy a cocktail at the bar and lounge area. It is a large area and the service is amazing. I believe this is the best steak in town. The charred taste with butter dripping of each bite. Don't forget to stop by the front door to look at the pictures. If you are an super sports fan, you will really enjoy it.
