Murray's Restaurant & Cocktail Lounge Ratings and Reviews
I had dinner with my wife and her parents. I loved my Porterhouse! Well seasoned, nice portion, and high end customer service. I would recommend this place for any fine dining lover. This marked my wife and I 8th wedding anniversary and We enjoyed every single minute celebrating at Murray’s. We will certainly be back!!
Murray' never disappoints. All the times we have been there (since 1983) have provided a first-rate experience. And since the remodel, it is fun to see people of all ages; people both young and old enjoying what has always been for us such an enjoyable time. We are looking forward to our next visit.
I wanted to impress a friend who was visiting from Chicago, where the steak houses are numerous and fabulous. Where better than Murray's to achieve the goal. We shared the signature Butter Knife Steak with au gratin potatoes and salad. I had the beet salad and it was very tasty and full of beets and greens. The steak was delicious and done perfectly and we had a wonderful Cabernet to accent the flavors. Our only problem was that we had eaten so many of the garlic toasts - yum! - that we could not finish our steak. The good news for me is that it is in my refrigerator and I look forward to another delicious taste this week.
It’s been a while since we had eaten at Murray’s but we HAD to travel the 200 miles for our Anniversary. After all, we were there on our honeymoon, 1st, 10th, 20th, 25th, and several other aniverseries.
Neither distance nor disability were going to stop us from sharing the Silver Butterknife on our 40th Wedding Anniversary!
The ENTIRE experience was wonderful!!!!
Murray's still is simply the finest dining experience in downtown Minneapolis. The food, service, and ambiance has always been exceptional. So many years on 6th street in Minneapolis, it is truly an icon and landmark of the downtown Minneapolis dining scene.
We were so impressed by the service and attention to detail throughout the meal. It was a memorable dining experience that was personalized to our requests. This was primarily due to our waiter Ricardo who is a true professional and the tradition of fine dining at Murray’s. We were treated like family there and would highly recommend it to others. It is worth every penny for those great steaks and friendly staff/owners.
Went to Minneapolis with a colleague for a seminar and had a terrific meal at Murray's. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, available without being invasive and overly obvious. The bartender mixed a nice Manhattan. Not all do. For entrees, we both had filets, done precisely as ordered, and extraordinary. Murray's still has it, and won't disappoint.
Kind of disappointing. I had the Original Steak sandwich and the steak was cut too thick. It was hard to eat and I really wouldn't ever order it again. Also not the most tender so when you bite in the whole big chunk just pulls right out of the sandwich. The toasted "sourdough" was not particularly good quality.
I know they can do better so I would go back, but this was not impressive.
A truly excellent experience! Sheri provided a service experience we haven't seen for years: within minutes it felt like a warm friend had established a goal of styling us to the max. We had the steak for two: I'm 60 years old and I've eaten steak all over the world and it's the best I've ever had. We've been wanting to experience Murray's for years and now only a few months at the most will pass before we're back.
I seem to visit Murry's about twice per year. This visit elicited food that was not nearly as good as my last visit - Maybe just an off night. Sides were good - The hash browns are a "don't miss" item. however my bone-in filet was over-cooked. I ordered medium rare and received a solid medium. It's a shame to kill an outstanding cut with over-cooking.
This is definitely an OLD SCHOOL restaurant. We started at the bar while we waited for our table. We ordered drinks and just a we received our drinks, the table was ready. Our excellent bar server carried our drinks for us. The martini's were GOOD and I loved that they had my blue cheese stuffed olives. Our dinner server was very knowledgeable about the menu. We were there to celebrate my Uncle's 90th birthday, so I wanted him to enjoy a great meal! I had the oyster's Rockfeller, which were tasty, but not outstanding. My uncle and friend had salads. My uncle and friend ordered the butter steak for two. It is a very thick cut of beef. Although they ordered it medium rare, it came out rare, borderline raw. The server sliced the steak and brought it back to the kitchen for more fire. The meet came back medium to medium well. We did not say anything, but the meat was not that super tender steak we thought it would be. I had the bone in porterhouse. While tasty, it was not super tender, which I would have expected. We did have a good bottle of wine with dinner, but most of the better bottles of wine are in the $100-200 range. We finished the evening with several to go boxes and a complimentary dessert for my uncle. Overall, the service was excellent, the food was average. We went to Manny's Steak House a few years ago, and the steaks were better, but much louder dining room. The real surprise was a Minneapolis neighborhood restaurant called Jax, which by far had one of the best filet mignon steaks I have ever had the pleasure of eating. My friend used the men's rest room when we arrived around 7:30 PM and he said it was not clean and up to the expectations of a caliber restaurant like Murrays. Nice atmosphere, but if I was going to spend $450 for three people again, I would want a more tender steak.
