Great brunch. We love the food at Murphys. It never disappoints. And they have choices for the kids too. The whole family enjoyed it.

We had a great experience! The food was outstanding and our server Ashton, while new, was great. The bar did run out of the ingredients to make the delicious Gin and Jam cocktail. I probably would have stayed there all day drinking that cocktail! I look forward to going back!

Brunch is here absolutely fantastic. We sat outside in the cutest courtyard. You couldn’t even tell there you were near a highly trafficked intersection. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Would highly recommend for weekend brunch and can’t wait to go back for dinner.

Always enjoy this restaurant. Rain brought us indoors. Food as always very good. Chicken pozole soup was very luke warm but the waitress was accommodating. The restaurant was very lightly populated even for covid. Although the server was accommodating and efficient I could have used at least the illusion of caring and the meal was very rushed. Entrees served while finishing soup. Overall a consistently good place.

Great service during our visit- Ricky L was attentive, fast, and professional with the perfect balance of casual/friendly. The food had a good flavor and was delivered to the table in the right amount of time.

My only "knock" on my visit is in the area of value. The pancakes, for the price, were kind of small. Add a couple of scrambled eggs and a non-alcoholic drink and I'm very quickly at $20. Not a terrible price however not $20 in value IMO.

No, I don't expect to receive plate-sized pancakes however for my money, I wasn't wowed when the food was presented. A bit of a miss given the high marks in other categories.

We were there this past Sunday for brunch. My daughter and mother in law both ordered the same item which was quiche and they came out two different sizes (small and smaller) ... my mother in law asked if she could have ceasar salad instead of the spring mix that came with the quiche ... they charged $9 for that ...

I thought that was a little much ...

My reservation was for 12:30, I arrived at Murphys ten minutes early and I was seated in five minutes. The server Frederic was charming and his service was excellent. The food was to die for. We had a lovely time and we never felt rushed to leave. We will go back again.

My husbands fish was gel RAW, sent it back. Took forever to get bread service and had to ask twice - my entree was just okay, but at least it was cooked , unlike my hubby s fish that was $30.00 - the service was terrible . Also if you advertise your patio outside in the cooler temps of Atl. and have 5 propane heaters out there , why would you not light them up on a 48 degree evening? Their reply was , oh we ran out of propane fuel on all of the heaters this afternoon. Like really? GO across the street to the Chevron and buy some fuel for your heaters . I expected more from an upscale, not cheap restaurant. We will NOT be back here or recommend it!

I love Murphy's because not only is the food excellent, they go to great lengths to keep customers safe in this time of pandemic. Murphy's is the ONLY restaurant I have frequented this year.
Check out their website to see how seriously they take this virus and everything the owners have done to ensure diner's safety.

We enjoyed the attention to the “new standard”. They checked our temperature and seated us promptly.
The waiter was attentive and nice. We ate on the patio.
The drinks were delicious, but sadly the food was a slight disappointing.
The meatloaf was overcooked as if it had been reheated. It was flavorful, but dry.
The brisket my wife had was tasty. The green beans were “cool” and undercook, more raw than anything else.
We’ve been here many times, but in fairness to the restaurant and our new paradigm I forgive them for the shortcomings.
It was just good to finally get out and enjoy the evening.

As two friends meeting up for the weekend in Atlanta, this place was perfect!!! Their special mimosas were to die for and the food portions were so big we both took home food for our next meal. We were happy because we hadn’t eaten out in such a long due to COVID, but they had a well ventilated covered patio that made us feel safe. Service was excellent. Would recommend to everyone!

Have eaten dinner many times at Murphy's and it has always been excellent. Expected the same for brunch and it was just average...nothing special. Service was also slow and my son ordered a hamburger and received a chicken burger and the waiter blamed it on take-out orders...not impressed!
