We were seated about 15 minutes and no one had approached our table, so I tracked down the host and asked for a waiter, so that was a bad start. She finally arrived and the service was good but that kind of set the mood for the meal.

I was disappointed that there was only one vegetarian option unless you count the vegetarian sides and those were plentiful. I ordered the seasonal vegetable plate and it was more like a grain bowl with a half cup of veggies added. Honestly, it was kind of bland but the portion size was ample. I expect dishes to be at least as good as something I prepare at home, but this one fell far short, so that just tells me that the chef is not passionate about vegetables.

I like the ambience at the restaurant a lot but that does not make up for the lack luster vegetarian dish.

The food was awesome. I had the lobster roll with fries and my wife had the salmon with mash potatoes. It was my choice for date night and I wanted something local. My wife was a little iffy about the place but once she tried the food, she loved it. She said we will be back!

Murphy’s was great as always. The only downside was the valet losing the car key of a friend from the far northern suburbs. Valet isn’t managed by Murphy’s but it caused the evening to end on a negative note. :0(

We love Murphy's -- menu is always interesting, food is consistently outstanding, service and ambience are wonderful. My wife and I make a regular practice of going to Murphy's whenever we can, whether it's a date for just the two of us, or a birthday/anniversary, or a special dinner with our whole family. We both recommend it highly!

Love Murphys. We went for our anniversary. Food is always good. Nice Fall menu - loved the butternut squash soup. My husband had the salmon and I went with the spinach sausage meatloaf. Both were fantastic. Can beat the $1 price on the cookies. Loved the food so much that we ordered the Thanksgiving pick up dinner. What a bargain. I can cook, but don't think I can buy the ingredients for the price they are charging and $15 to add an extra Murphy's pie is a steal.

I was so impressed! I let them know it was my birthday and when I arrived there was a birthday card for me with some of the staff's signature. I thought that was such a nice sweet touch! Small gestures definitely go a long way. Jordan, our server, was so kind and knowledgeable about the menu. I even got a little dessert for my special day! I would definitely recommend friends to go here :)

Food was great. Service was very slow. We were on the tail end of the lunch rush so not sure why our order took so long.By the time the food came the restaurant was empty. Also the host who seated us did not check us in with Opentable, even though I told him we had a reservation.

Consistently delicious food and excellent service. The desserts alone are worth going for. The lobster salad is my favorite. Can be dressy, special occasion dining or casual lunch with a friend. This is a place to take your out-of-town guests.

My wife and I went to Murphy’s for our first anniversary. They had a card signed by the staff waiting for us at the table. The food was superb! Muscles were some of the best I have had and the salmon was equally as good. They gave us a small desert to celebrate the occasion. His is another shining example as to why they are one of our favorite places to dine.

Had a really nice evening. Celebrated our 10th anniversary here. Had elote and the calamari appetizers.
For dinner we had the scallop special and a shrimp with pasta dish. Very tasty and fresh. The staff at Murphy’s acknowledged our anniversary with a card placed on our table and a nice dessert on tha House. Our server was good, helpful with suggestions and info about food options. Thanks, Murphy’s!!

The food was fantastic! The service was surprisingly poor for Murphy's. I've been here many times and this visit was unique. We came at lunchtime, but were mistakenly given a dinner menu. Our server took our drink orders and it took over 20 minutes to get iced tea! 15 minutes later, I had to flag him down and ask if we could please order. About 20 minutes after that, he stopped by to ask if we'd like to hear about the specials! I told him no and asked if he could please put in our order. About 20 minutes later- food arrived! It was wonderful as always- almost worth the over-an-hour wait. Maybe just an off day? I've never had a bad experience before at Murphy's.

I’ve always had good experiences at Murphy’s. This time, not so much. The cold potato and leek soup (vichyssoise) was good, the avocado toast was odd. It had a topping of fish roe which was clearly stated on the menu description but it didn’t add the saltiness I expected. All it added was an unwelcome fishy taste. I’ve had fish roe with sushi but will skip it on my avocado toast from now on.

We’ve eaten at Murphy’s a number of times before, and they’ve always been excellent experiences. This time was our first lunch experience. The service was phenomenal and so was the food. On top of it, we were celebrating my mother‘s birthday. Not only did they give her a signed card (signed by the staff, which we thought was a really classy touch by the way), but after the meal, they also brought out a sweet and delicious dessert with a burning candle on top. We will undoubtedly be back many more times. Thank you, Murphy’s for making it a very special and memorable birthday meal for my mom.
