I was seated directly next to the water station (the water station touched my seating area). All throughout lunch, wait staff refilled water and clanged around...

Great food. The service was slow. The wine is an excellent value. The best value is the sharing the larger steaks for the whole table.

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.

We had the Chateaubriand for Two. We were not wowed by the tenderloin. Au Gratins were somewhat under cooked. Dessert was delicious! Service was fantastic and would definitely request our server again!

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.

Food was amazing, service was lacking from the server to the uninterested sommelier. Wine experience was tough to say the least and server was not interested in keeping table clean of empty drinks and dirty plates from the beginning courses til the end, after dessert and coffee.

25thh anniversary dinner. Always a special occasion at Murray's. When I made the reservation, I put in the notes that it was for our 25th. When we arrived, we received a hardy "congratulations" and were sat at a quiet table. Our server, "Slim", was very attentive yet not overbearing. Nice. He took our bar order and brought us a basket of delicious breads and those famous garlic toasts. So ono!

WE ordered the Murray "steak flight" and it was, of course, delicious. For dessert, Slim brought us a perfectly sized yellow butter cake. It was crazy good.

Perfect evening and highly recommended.

We always have a great experience at Murrays! Great food, drinks and service! I always get a fish or seafood dish and it is always done perfectly. Love the garlic bread too. I had the cheesecake with the homemade toffee bits and it was fantastic! We will continue to recommend Murray's to our friends and family.

He made sure we understood the menu and explained all the items in detail, and made sure we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend Murray’s to anyone!!

The service was fine, and the valet parking curbside was unexpected, but the food was only average at best. Nothing remarkable about the $100+ Silver Butterknife Steak. Maynard's $18 sirloin has much more flavor. Someone needs to give the chef a basket of Lawrys seasoning. We went 30 years without Murray's and will not miss them.

I've been to Murray's many times and most times I've ordered the signature butter knife steak sandwich. Yesterday's steak wasn't as good as it has been in the past. Out of five of us who ordered the sandwich, three of us weren't totally satisfied. Mine was a little chewy and in the past , its always melted in my mouth. The flavor was still excellent and the raspberry pie was to die for. We still enjoyed ourselves but were just a little disappointed in the quality of the steak yesterday

Excellent service, great food and a fantastic atmosphere. Murray's delivers on all fronts. As we come from out of town for football games Murray's has been our night before ritual for an evening of steak, drinks and a great time in general. Staff aren't pushy to get you in and out.

Family-owned Murrays is the best steak restaurant in the Twin-Citiies, certainly, and maybe the country. Even upon first visit you feel like a regular, and the Silver Butter Knife steak is absolute perfection. The appetizers and side dishes are plentiful and reasonably priced. I've been going there for the past 30 years (it's also the oldest steak restaurant in the country) and have never been disappointed. Not once.

We ate there last night to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was amazing! From the food to the staff we couldn’t have asked for a better dinner. I got the bone in fillet with a crab cake, brussel sprouts and augraten potatoes. My husband got the ribeye and loaded potatoes and helped with my sides. The crab cake was hands down the best I have ever had!! Everything was amazing!! The drink Maui Waui was delicious!! Our waiter was so nice and on to of everything!

We will be back!!
