Tucked into Murphy's after a long day of travel my first night in Atlanta. As Goldilock's would say, "It was just right" in every way.

Our server was not very attentive, runners would bring food and drop on the table without regard to making space or ensuring the right person got their meal. There was a drunk person next to our table that was super obnoxious and nobody from the staff seemed to care to get the situation under control (ie kick the drunktard out?). Food was overpriced (scallops undercooked, mussels seemed to have been boiling for days, blah). Disappointed overall with the service and the quality of the food. Something has changed, this place used to be great.

Murphy’s is always a pleasure. Great food, great service. We came to celebrate a birthday anniversary of a friend themat died in February. Murphy’s was his favorite places to dine with the Bonzo being his favorite dessert. We are greatful for the dessert Murphy’s gave us in honor of our friend.

I have been dinning at Murphy's for many many years. However, over the past 7 years I go less because nothing new is on the menu. I would like to see change in the menu. I don't go as much as I would when I remember they have the same old thing on the menu.

Over the years we have found Murphy's to be consistently good. The atmosphere, food, and service make it a place we like to go. On our budget we cannot go often but when we want to treat ourselves, my husband and I can count on enjoying a dinner at Murphy's.

Murphy's is an excellent dining choice in the Virginia Highlands area. Menu provides a variety of choices, all very well prepared. We visit regularly because of the great food at reasonable prices.

A lovely local restaurant with great service and relaxing atmosphere. The wine list is very good but the food could be better. It’s fine but a little improvement could hit it out the park. It would be great if they could step it up to compete with some of the midtown/Inman Park restaurants (think Ecco, Cooks & Soliders, Two urban licks). It would also be great if they could get a barista and serve good coffee. Perhaps they should poached a barista from San Francisco roasting ?! We’ll be back as we are local but would love to see some improvement.

Going to Murphy's feels like visiting an old friend. The food is comfortable and reliably good, the service attentive, and if you go the right time, you can actually hear the person you are dining with.

The food was amazing, service was very fast. Noise level was kinda high, could have been a lot quieter for me. Recommend a reservation if you have a lot of people coming or if you do the brunch.

Sat outside for a business dinner, and it was a great atmosphere. Wine was amazing as always. Had the trout, not my favorite Murphy's dish, but good. Toll House Pie perfectly capped the meal.

Great food and wine.
Started with mussels and a cheese plate to share.
Brisket was tender and delicious with mashed potatoes, green beans and carrot.
Nice wine selection to choose from.
Carrot cake for dessert, with a lovely Madeira.
Service was excellent
A great experience.
