Murphy's has been one of my top brunch places in Atlanta for years. Make reservations, though, because they get busy every weekend.

Need reservations. The front blond girl won’t tell you that. Told us 1 1/2 hour wait. Went online and was able to reserve a table with only a 15 minute wait. She then refused to seat us. Her counterpart was extremely helpful and compensated for her counterparts bad attitude. If they tell you a ridiculous wait time then just look on line and stay away from the blonde hostess.

Have loved Murphy’s for decades. Excellent service and food quality never waiver….. and in these Covid times, masks are mandatory— staff and patrons. Cudos!! Not so in several
Local restaurants. I don’t want unmasked people preparing and serving my food. Thank you Murphy’s !

Great service and food was terrific. Will return. Be aware they do add 20% gratuity to all tickets and still have a “normal” looking tip line fo fill out on the receipt. They do notify you of it on the menu too.

Great meal. Our server , Dylan, was excellent. Very laid back but very professional and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Thai Chicken Salad, the meatloaf and the brisket. Everyone was very happy with their selections. Started with the Eloite and the special app deviled eggs. Bread pudding topped off the meal. Very glad we selected this comfy neighborhood gem.

Went there for brunch on Sunday morning with a 10 am reservation with a table for 4. I think we just beat the majority of the crowd. Service was great, food options and abundance were wonderful. Extras like muffins and biscuits for the table were a treat. The only very small issue we had was that both the food and coffees could have been a bit hotter. Everything was lukewarm. Still, food was delicious, service was great. We'll most certainly be back!!

Outstanding value. Have it lost their good vibe, not been in a decade. Will return. If early no valet so was directed to steer and had to walk a couple of blocks to and fro. Valets there as we were leaving. Need to ask next time if we can park in bank area they use if valet not available. Extensive limitations for someone who is allergic to eggs and dairy or grains.

Our Friday out.
Mussels were good. We look forward to the return of the pesto version.
The tuna salad was good. Ask for a sharp knife dice the large chunks to accompany the mound of lettuce that comes with them.
Excellent cappuccino.

As always, the food was delicious and the service impeccable. I had the trout and my husband had the roasted chicken. I never go to Murphy's without ordering dessert. The Bonzo never disappoints!!

Service was sooo slooow. Crispy Brussels Sprouts, Flash Fried Calamari, and Seared Atlantic Salmon were flavorful and delicious. The special entree for lunch, Shrimp and Grits, was okay, nothing special.

The hostess was so lovely and greeted us so cheerfully. Great table on the patio. Highly recommend sitting outside if it’s not too hot. Food was excellent. It would be 5 stars if our server was not so awful! Jessica could not have been more short and rude. Definitely muddied our experience. She was bothered when we asked her any questions - I would think most people might ask about menu items or for a spoon to stir the sugar in their coffee. Her abruptness and unfriendly personality is all we are talking about. If you go there don’t sit at her table! Otherwise setting is lovely and everyone else was so nice!

Murphy’s used to be a staple for me. The service was disappointing, asked to sit outside to be told that we would have to wait but the kitchen closes at 9 o’clock. There were two tables outlet available
We agreed to sit inside and were provided a small table in the walking path of everyone. Service was poor, no excitement, had to ask for specials, didn’t explain appetizers. She kept walking away and had to have her come back to ask more questions. Overall disappointed that we did not stay to have desert. Valet parking was moved across the street. I’ll stick with Paces and Vine.

My wife had her bday dinner. We had a great time. We were seated at the patio. Unbeknownst to us we were seated underneath the air conditioner vent. The nights are getting cooler and so my daughter was cold. The steak frites dinner was smaller than I remembered. Other than that we had a great time.

Murphy's is where my wife and I go for comfort food, make that comfortable food. My wife is addicted to the brisket sandwich for lunch. I try different menu items, but I usually return to the hamburger and fries, the meatloaf or the half sandwich (brisket), soup and salad. The food may not be gourmet, but it's satisfying and delicious. And the server is always friendly and knowledgeable. The staff gives the impression of enjoying working at Murphy's, something you don't sense at most other restaurants.

Service was slower than usual due to training new staff. However, another staff person helped put our order in so that we could meet the deadline to leave by 3 pm. Tipped him extra for his help!

We went for brunch and had a wonderful experience. The food was amazing as always but the best part was our server Dominique. She was very attentive and helpful all while juggling several tables. It was obvious that she takes pride in her job. Our meal was paced perfectly and she checked on us without being overbearing. We were able to enjoy our meal and conversation and also felt very well attended to.
