This was our first visit to Murphy's Restaurant, based on good reviews and the ability to make an Open Table reservation for Saturday brunch. Expectations were high because our restaurant choices the day before had been regrettable and I was hoping to redeem our culinary experience in Atlanta. In short, we were not disappointed. We received a warm welcome and were seated immediately in a cozy quiet back room. Service was extremely friendly and our server was very knowledgeable of the menu. Lots of great options, but my husband ordered the shrimp and grits and I ordered the Eggs T. Murphy (basically Eggs Benedict). This was the best English muffin I've ever had - so tender and soft! Portion size was very generous. We also enjoyed our cafe lattes and the complimentary muffins and biscuits. Wonderful brunch start to finish. This will be a go-to for us on future visits to Atlanta.

The food was tasty it just wasn't enough food! We ordered the rainbow trait & it was very, very small portion of trout as well as the vegetables on the plate. I'm guessing I had one asparagus which was cut in five pieces, a few lentils & and exacyly two very small pieces (pea size) sweet potatoes. I'm a medium size woman & my meal was no where near satisfying. If I pay $18 for a lunch entree I should be somewhat satisfied. I actually left Murphy's & stop to eat somewhere else. Not acceptable Murphy's!

20 years coming to Murphy’s and it never disappoints!
My only suggestion is minor: you all use to have a grilled pork chop on menu, please think about bringing it back! Thanks

The calamari and flatbread were delicious, and very flavorful! The brisket was cooked perfectly and a fork is all that was needed... so good! Brussels sprouts had an Asian flare to them... different and very welcome. The Mac & Cheese was also insane. Basically everything tasted amazing! And don’t even think about leaving without a desert! Bread pudding and the trio... you’re welcome!

Love the place and the feeling of the space. Great place to go for drinks or have a dinner. There’s a family feel but also lots of spaces that are kid free if someone doesn’t want that vibe.

Good food although we felt rushed by the server when we were two moms kid free who wanted to just visit for two hours. The place wasn’t busy so I didn’t like that feeling of being rushed.

Been many times in the past, had been several years since the last visit. The food was excellent.
Limited wine and bar choices was surprising (no Belvedere or Merlot).
Service was so spotty, the food runners were rude and obviously did not pay attention, I got the wrong place 3 times...........

To bad.

Murphy's is charming, and I really wanted to love our experience. We ordered a charcuterie board which never came. The lobster salad, which is really delicious is just not plentiful at all. It was just an okay experience.

I want to like Murphy’s, but it’s honestly just overpriced country club food. Not to mention our server was basically a giant airhead that clearly didn’t want to be there and didn’t know wine from grape juice. For the same price you could go to kimball house or the optimist which are two amazing atlanta restaurants that will prove their skill set to you time and time again. Not to mention their fine service and hospitality. Then again, I think Murphy’s has potential, they just have to diversify.

I cook a lot at home for friends. I thrive on their enjoyment of fare and fellowship. So when I take people out to dinner I evaluate their response. My guests agreed it was good value and more importantly, they would return. Thanks Murphy's for making me look good.

I love Murphy's for its ambiance. Loved the heated patio! Perfect temp!

Saturday brunch with my sister is always pleasurable. The food was okay - nothing to make me go back for. Had the shrimp and grits and a waffle...just ok. My waiter was horrible very inattentive and lacked awareness as a waiter. We had to constantly ask for things which after awhile became irritating.

Overall my company is what made this experience enjoyable. The service and food is definitely nothing to make me hurry back.

Murphy’s has long been a favorite of ours. Different seating areas so noise is kept to a minimum-a big plus for me. We were seated promptly upon our arrival. Their food never disappoints. My husband usually orders their Seared Tuna Salad. He never goes wrong with that dish. I ordered the fish special - Parmesan crusted flounder with squash chunks and potatoes. Delicious at my first bite; and last. Great wine selection. Our server Will, was excellent.

We dined at Murphy’s before taking our daughter and her friend back to the airport. The meals were well prepared. My daughter chose brisket, I had prime rib, my husband had salmon and her friend selected a burger. Everyone was pleased with their selections. I would have liked a few more green beans with the prime rib. We loved the desserts,! Murphy’s delivers a reliable and consistent dining experience.

Time after time, Murphy's delivers the goods. Parking is an obstacle and worth the extra effort. Host and table service were in synch so no drop-off with ordering, receiving food in timely manner.

Had plenty of time to conduct business and work up an appetite for dessert. Yum!

Our server seated us in a crowded area although there were plenty of seats. I eat here regularly so wasn’t pleased. We moved to another table.
