This is the second time the hostess who makes the decision where people are seated was rude. Not sure we will be back. It’s a shame because the food is great and the servers are wonderful. Guess we switch to take out from now on.

Hostess made us feel uncomfortable for bringing our stroller in.. my husband and i went outside while we waited for our table while our friend stayed in waiting and overheard hostess telling the other waiter that we came in with such a big stroller (which was a normal sized stroller…) and what a hassle it would be to fit us in; our friend let her know he was with us and hostess started to apologize and until then let us in with stroller 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄 we felt discriminated

First time back in 15 years. Lovely. The calamari was the bomb and the Guiness brisket was tasty too. Cocktails great but service was just beyond amazing. Too full for dessert. Loved their selection of wine by the glass -- wonderfully curated. And our waiter, though a younger guy, was spot on with wine pairings with our meal. We ate out on the "new" patio and the atmosphere was fantastic with a good deal of spacing between tables. We will definitely be back -- wanna try those brussel sprouts next time.

The food was good but not worth $120 for 2 adults and 3 kids eating breakfast and drinking water and apple juice. I know it’s a la carte, but $14 for a waffle is outrageous.
Our server was nice enough, but not very attentive.
I’d still recommend but be prepared to spend too much

The hostess had an attitude because I asked for outside seating. When I asked could we sit outside after she yelled my last name twice to be seated. She deep sighed, didn’t answer my question then told the other host to seat me at a table number. I said thank you she didn’t respond. After asking the waitress for a crab cake she stated it couldn’t be served by itself then said it doesn’t make sense to pay for crab Benedict if all I want is the crab. I asked her to please ask the chef as we only want the crab cake with hollandaise sauce to company our salads. She returned to the table stating he would prepare it for us for $10 and it will be one large crab cake. When she returned the crab cakes were not size, tasted as if they were from a box. It was not fresh lumped crab. She said these are the sizes as if it was ok that she did not deliver a large crab cake. The sauce came after asking two more times for it. I also had to ask for more bread twice. I was disappointed and will not be returning.

We had a great time at Murphy's. The ambiance was nice and the vibe laid back. I had the Seared Atlantic Salmon and it was awesome! Other guest had the Steak Frites and Guinness Braised Brisket. I was a little disappointed in the Guinness Braised Brisket, but the Steak Frites were really good. In addition to the entrées we had drinks and an appetizer, it was all very tasty . Our server was very attentive and super helpful. Overall we had a five star experience!

We had a great time and the food was delicious! There weren't a ton of entree options but the cocktails were wonderful and the wine list was extensive. We were able to sit outdoors on the patio, which had much better ambience than indoors. Overall, would return!

Food as delicious as always. Patio seating okay, but I wasn’t told until day of that maximum of five can be seated outside. Two entrees served. 3-5 minutes later the other two entrees were served. Young woman, not our server, who delivered dinner plates to table, had an attitude when I expressed that four dinners should have been served at same time.

Our server was John and he served us with expert skills.
Perhaps he has that winning personality full of charm, Grace, poise, humor because I don’t believe training alone would result in the personable interaction with us that added to our most enjoyable time spent with a very dear friend.
Bravo John. Keep being fabulous! The food was beautifully prepared and presented and every bite was scrumptious. Thank you cooks, servers and everyone who contributed to a most fun & filling lunch.
