Father's Day was memorable with the help of the staff at Murphy's! The family had a great time.

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.

Murphy’s was great as always! Comfortable and casual but still an upscale dining experience. A little noisier than usual due to the summer fest going on but still great.

While it was difficult to park and get in to the restaurant during Virginia-Highland SummerFest, it was worth it. Yummy food and excellent service. Always a fun, reliable place to dine.

We have dined at Murphy's at least five times within the past two years. It is consistently excellent. However, this experience was lacking due to the fact we arrived on time for our 7:30 reservation but were not seated inside of the restaurant until 7:55. It was a very warm Atlanta evening, and we expected to be seated inside given our reservation. The hostess was a little cold and left us hanging. We were not offered a beverage while we waited for table. Once seated, our server was great and the food was very good. Murphy's should either ask diners to specify on that inside seating is preferred while making a reservation or always have the option of sitting inside for those who have made a reservation prior to arrival. As it was over 90 degrees in Atlanta on Saturday, we were not the only couple who preferred inside seating.

Had a great time. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the food on the menu. The Brisket was phenomenal. Will be back for my mother and I's birthday this month!

Second time there and just a repeat of the first time. Wanted to like it but they screwed up our order and we ate at different times.they were of course incredulous. Food was bland and very over priced.
Absolutely wont be returning and just can’t recommend it. All show. No substance.

Great meal as usual. Got the trout and it was great. Calamari is good as usual. Kind of disappointed that Mac and cheese does not have truffle oil anymore but my 3 year old liked it better. So it makes sense I guess

very poor service. waitress dropped the ball throughout entire dinner. asked for a shot to accompany my cocktail...never came, then when I told her just forget it, all she said was ok and walked away. waited at least 15 minutes for it to never come. were t offered any bread...everyone else around us did. she had an obvious attititude....my good came about 10 minutes before my husband so I was just sitting waiting for his meanwhile mines getting cold....husband wine flas stayed empty forever he had to flag her down to get a new glass. it was just horrible. husband said worst dinner has had this year. and it was motherday for so thanks! yeah would love our money back. I never write a review so this should say something. left her a 15% tip which we never do. we leave 20% always...u have to be really bad for us not to. she likely thought we were cheap, but that was not the case. i suggested just a note such as the one I'm writing now but he didn't feel like it.
