Everything was delicious and our waitress was good. The reason for 4 stars overall was the attitude of the hostess when we came in without a mask. Wasn’t overt, just a general negativity which was unnecessary, and we complied with the complimentary masks.

Outside seating was nice and comfortable with plenty of fans to beat the heat. Food was very good and cooked perfectly. The coffee was excellent - love that they had regular coffee plus espresso drinks.

Welcoming, professional hostess sat us early which was nice. Server asked us for allergies and restrictions Appetizer (roti and dip) and entrees (burger, steak frites, and salad) were well prepared with fresh ingredients. Drinks were a little slow but decent value. The bar and dining areas are well designed. Would recommend!

Need more items on menu for chicken/vegan. Server was pleasant but slow to bring water/drinks. Food was terrific. Unfortunately, and not the restaurant's fault, but we were seated by a table of 6 and they were loud nearly the entire time so it was difficult to have a conversation.

Although our service and food was very good, the overall dining experience was not. Upon entering the restaurant, my spouse and I found ourselves amongst an over-crowded and mask-less reception area. Approximately 15 people, standing almost shoulder-to-shoulder were squeezed between the door, a fully occupied bar and the reception desk. Although my spouse and I wore masks and are fully vaccinated, conditions at the entrance were inappropriate in a state with less than 40% fully vaccinated adults. In addition, our server was mask-less, as well. We had no way of knowing whether or not she was fully vaccinated. Murphy’s had been one of our go-to restaurants.

We have been dining at Murphy’s since the late 1980s. It has morphed into something quite different over the years. We understand that change is inevitable and we welcome positive change. We recognize that current conditions have put many restaurants out of business because of several challenges, staffing as a key example. That said, the specials get a big thumbs up and food consistency is still alive and well at Murphy’s. Service…not so good but limited to seating and lack of follow up. We did have a reservation at 1:30. We were properly seated at 2:00. Our table side service was excellent once we had a table and server. Let’s hope this is a one off.

As usual the food and service were excellent! The only detraction from our experience being seated on the enclosed patio was that it was breezy (fans and open door to outside) and the noise level was quite high because of a party of 8 or so that was very loud. But overall a very pleasant experience.

I made this reservation for my mother and 3 of her friends who were visiting Atlanta from out of town. While I did not attend, they all raved about their time at Murphy's. They praised the food and the service and said it was their best meal while in town.

I've lived in the metro area for 29 years and I had never heard of this place, unfortunately. I googled "brunch in Atlanta" and this place had great reviews. So when I was responsible for choosing a Sunday brunch spot for me and some sorority sisters, I chose here and I'm glad I did. I liked being able to make reservations so there wouldn't be a long wait. We arrived about 10 minutes early and we were seated right on time. The service was great and the food was delicious. I had the shrimp and grits as well as the Lorraine quiche (just greedy). I also had the blueberry mimosa which was also very good. This was my first brunch since COVID and being greedy was my business :-) I'll definitely be returning.

BRUNCH is always a good experience at murphy's. Only thing that would have liked is the callabash hash (i think that's what it waa called) to have less ir smaller cut potatoes.

Our overall experience at Murphy's was wonderful, we were seated immediately upon arrival and our servers were polite and attentive. The food was good and just as we ordered. Exceptional was our severs who allowed us to stay a little longer than our meal as we were caught up in our conversations...they couldn't have been or accommodating and pleasant throughout or visit. Thanks

I had way too many alerts from Open table, about fifteen in all. That is so annoying and breaks the mood for dining. In fact, it's insulting. Ingot four messages while I was waiting for my table that took almost a half hour to be seated because they were too busy. I have been dining there for over thirty years and I was very disappointed last night. As long as we had to wait I think they should have bought us a good if drinks.

The shared appetizers were great. I got Thai salad with chicken. The chicken was inedible. Tough and dry. Waitress wasn’t the least bit concerned. The credit card for one person in our group of 4 was misplaced by the waitress or cashier (they later found it). Then after I got home, I got a notification from my bank that a charge had been made to my credit card card when I wasn’t present. This was in addition to the charge made while I was at the restaurant. I called Murphy’s and talked to Kimberly (I think). She could not have been nicer or more apologetic. She, and the manager, Shayna, promptly corrected the error. Because of those two employees, I will probably give Murphy‘s another try.
