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 old school steakhouse with unique house special steaks. Outstanding sides and apps. Great cocktail list and wine list. Best steakhouse in Minneapolis.

Wonderful experience; love the ambiance and old photos. The 4:00 - 6:00 deals are a good value for 5-star food. Steak melts in your mouth and the au gratin potatoes and garlic toast are old-school delicious.

We arrived 20 minutes early and we’re seated immediately in one of the smaller rooms off to the side which are much quieter than the main room. The service was outstanding! It’s been a few years since I’ve been there I forgot how much I like their garlic toast. We had escargot as an appetizer which was delicious. And for the main course we had the châteaubriand for two. I think I probably say this every time I go there but it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten in my life. All in all it was a wonderful experience.

What can I say that hasn’t been said about this place over the decades. Amazing steaks, delicious sides, a very nice wine selection (with an occasional steal in there too, btw). Top notch service staff. They also make a mean and delicious Old Fashioned. Will definitely return.

Silver butter knife steak for two gets better every time we have it. Service is wonderful. We go every chance we get. It is the best for that special occasion! I can’t praise Murray’s enough.

Classy restaurant with excellent service and food. They accommodated one of our party who was in a wheelchair with respect and made it easy on everyone. Food was fantastic, although cost is expensive, but was worth it for our event. We had two birthdays and without prompting they brought two complimentary desserts with candles to share after dinner. It was a memorable night!

Still our favorite restaurant in the Midwest. Outstanding service by Collette, welcoming staff, and the food... oh the food... beyond compare. Culinary Wizardry that delights the senses. We cannot wait to go back.

Although it was a relatively good dinner, there are better steak options at similar prices available in the Twin Cities. My wife and I tend to eat this type of dinner about once a quarter and in my opinion our visit to Murray's was unexceptional.

Had the Chateaubriand. Excellent, but we knew it would be. It was cooked perfectly. We also really enjoyed the loaded hash browns and the Asian green beans. Has a nice bottle of cab and dessert. Service was exceptional, spot on.

Service was excellent, food was phenomenal. Best steak in the world if you ask me. I’ve never had anything better than the porterhouse at Murray’s. Get the potatoes au gratin, get the French onion soup. You won’t be disappointed. A Minneapolis, Minnesota institution, so glad this place has stood the test of time since the 1940’s. Amazing.

I was a bit disappointed in our server, I could hear the other server explaining the menu and the specials, and giving suggestions. Our server did not do that. My baked potato was dry and tasted terrible, my soup was super salty. I wouldn’t go back to Murray’s, we were very disappointed in the food and service. I have had great food there in the past, but for how expensive Murray’s is, it should be great every time.

A great meal. REALLY pricey but delicious. The blue cheese crust on the filet was wonderful. The spinach and au gratin potatoes were kind of a throw away but you're there for the steak so there you go.

Haven't been to Murray's in nearly 40 years. It was a nostalgic visit. Great service. Great atmosphere. Sadly the food was just okay and pricey so I can't say it was a very good value. Still I would recommend it just for the experience.

Have known of Murray's for decades. Every time I go to Minnesota... Wife and I make it a point to eat at Murray's. Steak for two is THE item to order. ALL the drinks are amazing. Staff is professional. Atmosphere is enjoyable. If you have the means, I highly recommend Murray's.
