Your menu continues to be outstanding; there is something for everyone. All the food was generous, well plated and very good. The only short-fall was too much salt (way too much salt!) on the protein, the potatoes, and the salad dressings. Not only does so much salt take away from the tasted of the food, but it can be unhealthy for many of your diners. We had the trio dessert: that was really outstanding, especially for the price.

Patio lovely for Mother’s Day Dinner. Our companions from Italy found their ribeye steaks perfect. My trout dinner excellent. And we could not pass up the trio of desserts. Just as we had hoped for.

Highly sought after but quite mediocre experience.
Very good wait staff, but each and every entree lack luster - there was no amount of salt, pepper, and lemon juice available to resurrect the trout (regular on the menu) or special halibut, from being anything other than bland and tasteless. Steak entree overcooked. Caesar salad under dressed and basically tasteless. Wine price point quite high. In a city of upcoming restaurants, I'm afraid Murphy's is lost on tradition and the fact that it's a trendy and comfortable dining neighborhood. I'm sorry to have to write this review.

Paymon was incredible! We knew it was going to be a fun lunch from the moment he introduced himself. The way he described the decedent menu options was unparalleled. I was sold on the soft shell crab he described, and the meal did not disappoint. We had a wonderful experience and Paymon was nothing short of spectacular. Thanks Paymon!

I took my fiancé for our first time ever at Murphy’s, and it was amazing! Our waitress was so helpful and knowledgeable about EVERYTHING. Every recommendation she made was a 10/10. We will definitely be back to explore the menu in greater detail.

Excellent food, good variety deliciously prepared. Great service. Lovely ambiance.

Parking a challenge: We saw signs for Valet but perhaps they are only there in the evening. Our choices were one of the very limited number of spaces in front of the restaurant, street parking or a walk to a large parking area down a steep hill and behind the buildings on the opposite corner.

We had a pleasant meal outside on the patio on a nice spring day. We started with charred artichokes with a lemon Aomori. The Brussels sprouts and bacon flatbread was amazing. The wine selection is good and not too pricey. Our entree we shared was a delicate fish with grits. Definitely recommend the Dessert Trio to finish, with the toll house being the central amazing treat.

I’ve been going to Murphy’s for so long, I consider it an Atlanta institution. It is an old faithful - always looks and feels the same, and I love that. The food seems a little expensive, and I prefer the tollhouse pie a little warmer than it was served this time, but it is always good overall. In addition to the great location, overall consistency, and the fact you can actually hear each other/ carry on a conversation, the windows and bright, natural light are a bonus and part of why I always prefer it for lunch.

We sat outside on very nice patio and the noise level was quite
high. I had duck confit and it was “okay” a little fatty. The grit cake it came with was fabulous.
My companions had salads with fish and they enjoyed. Help with wine selection was excellent and it was 1/2 off a bottle night. Nice!!

I love their Brisket Sandwich and salad lunch during the week and I love their Brunch on the weekends. I also like their nonalcoholic and alcoholic selections. This is the place I always take anyone who comes into town.

Murphy's was always my go-to for brunch when I moved to Atlanta in 2012. However, the quality of food seems to have gone down significantly over the last couple of years. I keep wanting to give it another chance, but my visit for brunch last Saturday will be my last. There are other great spots for weekend brunch now, and I would rather take my business somewhere consistently great--not somewhere where the waiter kept serving mediocre food while telling us how lucky we were to be eating brunch at Murphy's.

The wine service as usual was excellent with the proper glasses and perfect temperature. I wish more restaurants would follow this example given what a good bottle of wine costs. I had the new charred goat cheese appetizer which was excellent along with scallop special. The food here just never disappoints and is one of the reason we are such loyal guests.
