    I have never eaten brunch at Mrs. Murphy’s before and I absolutely loved the food! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time eating the Carnivore Omelette and the Irish Breakfast. The mimosas were also delicious!

    We went on a Sunday evening, and had a nice time. The parking lot made it easy for us as we didn't have to find street parking. Nice ambiance, good food, and quiet enough where we were to hold a normal conversation. We're looking forward to going back!

    It has a beautiful bar area, and they had great live music when we were there. Service was ultimately fine with it maybe erring a little on the slow side. The food was OK. The white fish schmear or whatever it was (an appetizer) was DELICIOUS. The Sheperd's pie and fried chicken thighs with colcannon we're good except both were under-seasoned. Both dishes were better once we added salt, and in the case of the chicken thighs, squeezed the lemon wedge it was served with over everything. Then, both dishes were great. The side of Guinness mac 'n cheese was like 95% of other mac 'n cheeses when you order it while out, in that, they don't use a strong enough cheese to give it that tang you desire. If they mixed in some sharp or extra sharp cheddar with whatever cheese they use, it'd have GREAT depth of flavor. All in all, we're planning on returning, just don't expect "mind-blowing" food.

    We had a family dinner for about 14 people, which included two children age 3. The kids loved the music and there was room for them to walk around. I wasn't expecting much except pub food because I had not eaten there. My niece recommended it. was surprised how good the food was and would definitely go back!

    I'd been wanting to go a long time and finally did. I went for a story telling night with the group "This much is true" (every 2nd tuesday of the month) and went early to have dinner. BEST guinness macaroni and cheese ever! Fish and chips amazing. Can't wait to go back!
