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.

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.

The restaurant is a wonderful throwback to the 1940's: a beautiful dining hall with lots of charm. The steaks were wonderful as was the service. It seemed like a place where the employees were part of a family. A bit expensive, but a very good experience.

Great Service. A significant note is that my petite filet was overcooked. My customers were done perfectly. If you declare yourself as a "Steak" place, proper prep is a must.
In summary, Good, not Outstanding.

I took my sister to this restaurant as a special treat. The food was really good, however the service wasn’t great. I think because we were two young females they dismissed us. We noticed that they would check on the other tables, but not ours. They brought bread to every one but us. They were short with us while they lingered at the other tables. When we initially walked in the host acted like we were in the wrong place, even seeming to question our reservation. If it wasn’t such an expensive restaurant I probably would just brush it off, however when you are spending as much for a meal as we did you expect a certain level of service and respect.

Perfect anniversary dinner! When the waiter found out I was gluten free he immediately moved the bread away from me and thought through our order and any changes we needed to make to accommodate my needs. When our meal was winding down he asked how long we have been together, how we met, etc and made it a very personal experience. We appreciated that! Thank you for making our anniversary dinner special!

Phenomenal service, great ambiance, delicious food. A great throwback restaurant - reminder of how things "used to be" in the 1950s and 1960s. I'd definitely go there again, and again, and again.

We were there celebrating our wedding anniversary and it was a great way to spend a couple of hours. We had a great meal and wine with great service. Our server seemed a little over the top artificially nice but she was attentive in the right amount and I cannot complain about the service. Everything was very good but if I had to choose I would choose Manny's where we have gone several times before. We tried Murray's as we have never been there and were staying right downtown at the Embassy Suites so it was convenient. I would go back but I think for the price I would go to Manny's given the choice.

Old time New York style steakhouse. Great lunch selections and a staff that is unequalled in the Twin Cities. Normally go for dinner where the Silver Butter Knife Steak stands alone in Minneapolis. The patty melt special for lunch was the best I have ever had and the steak sandwich is always a "go to" for lunch.

Another terrific meal at Murray's, with one rare exception. Murray's has been our go-to steak place for a several years now, and the chefs don't disappoint. Three of us had the rib-eye, and all loved, loved, loved it. The birthday boy also really enjoyed his T-bone. The sides were a bit of a miss - the risotto was too strong so the server brought mashed potatoes instead. Everyone agreed they were inedible - tasted more like garlic with a few potatoes to our whole table of people who like garlic (the server did remove from our bill). The asparagus and green beans hit the spot, though. The drinks are superb (current favorite is the Basil Thyme), and desserts were a great ending to a wonderful dinner.

A long-time legendary steakhouse in Minneapolis but with a contemporary feel thanks to remodeling a few years ago. Still in the hands of the family (Grandchildren of the founder) which helps account for the quality. Service was fully professional but friendly and welcoming and the ordered steak for 2 was wonderful. I've dined here on business trips through the years and it's always the same: perfect.

I thought the food was good but not better than any other high-end steakhouses.. we ordered the silver butter knife steak and it was good but not outstanding in flavor. Skip the mac and cheese side. Order the szechuan green beans. They are good! The ambiance is excellent and it was quite so we could talk.
