We were seated next to a large table of very loud, high-pitched women. Without much coaxing from me, our waitress found another table in a much quieter part of the restaurant. While the large party was having a great time, we did as well but we did not want to bother them. So we were happy that the restaurant was able to accommodate us. Thanks, Murphy's!

The food choices were very good and had excellent flavors, a very good chef. The service was impacted by a very large group, a large bus ull of people. Waiter was rushed but still a good experience.

Always good food; was there for a quiet lunch with a new acquaintance. Server was a bit rushed with us. And I really didn't appreciate him reaching across me to refill water glasses. His hairy arm was just about in my face. We could have simply passed our glasses to the end of the table. We were 2 seated at table for 4 against a wall.

I’ve been here several times before and the food was horrible! I’ve never written a bad review on any restaurant before. I was so excited to take my friend that was visiting from out of town. The crab cake looked like a biscuit that was taken out of the freezer and heated up. It was rubbery and cold in the middle. The ceased salad was wilted. The praline cheesecake tasted like sour milk. It was disgusting. I was so bummed. I love the atmosphere and ambiance of this place. The server was very kind. Thumbs down experience.

I suppose all restaurants have their good days and bad, this was our 2nd time there and it seemed a bit different. Different in the fact the food was just par (Grilled artichokes were tasteless and we asked to remove it from our bill) simple scotch and water $12 ?? I was very dissapointed, Hey but someone else just might love it.. who am I to judge.

We ate there before a concert. We walked in and were immediately seated since we had a reservation. Our server was great, and we got our food very quickly. We had plenty of time to get to the concert.

I hadn't been to Murphy's since becoming vegan and was very pleasantly surprised by how vegan-friendly they are. The vegetable wheat berry bowl was delicious!! My non-vegan companions greatly enjoyed their meals as well, and our server was extremely friendly and helpful.

Murphy's was absolutely divine. Service was amazing as usual. The food is always great, but the most important part was the wine. The wine selection is top notch.

We were first timers to Murphy’s, we had reservations thanks to Opentable and had arrived about 20 minutes early and they graciously sat us right away. Chasity was a fabulous server, very knowledgeable with both the food and wine menus. The timing of the courses was just right... I got the scallop special (AMAZING) and my husband got the brisket (equally AMAZING).
The only thing that could have made it any better is if, as we were seated outside, the patio enclosure didn’t allow for wind to come up from underneath it as the wind blew on that cold January evening.
Overall it was a wonderful evening and we will definitely be back!

Had brunch with my parents for my husband’s birthday. Ambiance was great. Service was great (3 had 3 servers - 1 tenured, 2 trainees).

Food was good, although there was a miscommunication/ issues with food (I received fries instead of potatoes; my husband didn’t have cheese in his omelette when he asked for 2 types). Most of our issues were resolved (except my husband’s cheese).

Overall almost everyone enjoyed their food. Would definitely recommend the Sunday brunch.

Horrible parking BUT Murphy’s stays consistent and they have been doing it for 40 years. Good food, professional service, consistency and the atmosphere is great. It is worth circling the neighborhood to find parking. I’ve eaten here at least 10 times and have never been disappointed.

This was my first time dining at Murphy’s and I was very pleased with everything. I wish I could remember our server’s name because he was so pleasant, friendly, and helpful. We were seated promptly and served just as fast. The braised brisket was tender and went well with the mashed potatoes and green beans. A tad bit salty but still very good. The burger was also fantastic - avocado mayo was a huge plus. Get the lemon Meyer and mint mock tail if you prefer nonalcoholic beverages.

Would I recommend Murphy's to a friend? I'd like to say 'maybe'? My one and only experience was mixed. The wait staff was engaged & engaging. I had asked for a relatively quiet table. No sooner had we settled in with our menus than a large group, boisterously happy, with clearly a lot on their minds that couldn't wait to be shared, was escorted to the only other table in our room. I looked at my son then gazed through the glass paned panel separating our now lively room from the next. It had a cozy-corner/library appearance in contrast to our room - essentially a 'hallway'. I noted several empty two-tops, a small family engrossed in their early dinner, it was barely 5:30. The only other occupants were an elderly couple, looking, sadly, as though long ago they'd run out of things to say to one another. I gazed wistfully at the quiet scene then turned back to my son. In a voice strained by volume required for simple conversation, the conversation for which I had arranged the 'early dinner' meeting with my son, I began. It was disappointing that the hosts (right & left hand) were unaware of the other. Our waiter was the bright spot. He was charming and very attentive. The food was the biggest disappointment. It wasn't that it was 'bad'. It was that $28 was way too much for the small chunk of grisly brisket unattractively plopped in a pool of mashed potatos that were oversaturated with horseradish (not a sprig of scallion or any other morsel on the plate). The mango chicken salad I had seemed like it might have been half-way decent had it come with dressing, or a mango that had flavor. The chicken breast was quite tasty - but I had hoped for more re the greens. The spritzer drink I had was very odd. I asked for cranberry & orange but it tasted like the bartender had ground up a few cranberries, mixed with seltzer and added a pinch of ?cardamom?
I think it would be worth trying again. I know they've been around forever so it must go better most of the time? Valet only

This was my first visit to the Highland's and Murphy's. Bar was intimate and a good place to hang out until our table was ready. Food had a good southern bent --- but even those who don't prefer Southern style had good options. Definitely would go back.

The food was great. I went for brunch and was excited about the mimosas but they weren’t all that great. I expected more flavor from the blood orange sage.

I choose for lunch " bowl grain" !! It was cold, too sweet, poor presentation. Due to respect to my friend didn't say anything.
Maybe it was a very poor choice for that day!

So disappointed last night - Mahi Mahi was obviously the bottom of the fish barrel. Had I not know - I would have guessed it was a Mahi Mahi knockoff swimming in a sea of butter. Instead of worrying about their dining customers - they sold all cases of Veuve earlier in the day. Happy New Year "uncorked."
