Dined in the bar as had a later reservation that didn’t work out. Ample seating but make sure you arrive early. Good service, great food but expect to spend some money.

I haven't been to Murray's since they re-did it and the inside is beautiful now. The service is so nice and very proper. I also enjoyed the food very much; they are known for their steaks and it did not disappoint.

They had a special, a 32 ounce bone-in aged 40 days Wagyu ribeye for two, that was one of the five best steaks I have ever had in my life (and I am 57).

Murray's once again delivered a fantastic meal with outstanding service. While some "other" establishments might be newer and flashier, Murray's original "silver butter knife"steak is the winner for best in the Twin Cities.

The food, as always, was outstanding. We brought our small printing company employees out for a belated holiday dinner. Unfortunately, our reservation coincided with the Vikings miracle catch and the entire restaurant was filled with obnoxious yelling football idiots. More of a scene I'd expect to see in Buffalo Wild Wings, not in a place like Murray's. Not the restaurant's fault by any stretch, but it did slightly tarnish an otherwise flawless meal.

We go to Murrarys a lot and love the staff and food. We request Anthony because we love and know him and he is very good however we have sat with a few people and have not been let down. We loved the football ending there tonight and I love how friendly everyone is with my 4 year old. He is not the most well behaved boy out there :-p

Always great food and service. I wish it was skyway connected. I love the old school look but something feels a little worn out like maybe they need new carpet, paint and tables. Something I just can’t put my finger on. Food for thought.
