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 went to Murray’s for our 22nd anniversary and had a wonderful evening. The food was exceptional and the service was even better. My wife has some food allergies and they were extremely good in working with her.

Murray's is one of those special places that we enjoy on a rare occasion. They never disappoint! The tenderloin is the best cut, in my opinion.

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.

Murray's is an excellent choice when in Minneapolis they have excellent food and a good atmosphere. The history behind the name and restaurant and the fact that it is still in the Murray family and not a cookie cutter chain speaks volumes!!

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.

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.

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.
