Murphys did an excellent job following COVID precautions, the service was excellent, and the food was amazing. We were able to enjoy a warm early March day outside on the patio and splurge with an excellent bottle of wine after a long day at work!

As always the service, the staff, the ambience, and the food was all terrific. I appreciate that they have been very diligent about Covid restrictions; the business associate/friend we were meeting is being super cautious during this period and has only eaten out three times in the last year. Murphy’s was the perfect spot both for the care they are taking for customer safety and the all-round quality of the dining experience. We have always loved Murphy’s and they continue to be a favorite ❤️

Our waitress was Katlin!! She was very welcoming and funny. Her service was absolutely AMAZING!! The food was good. The candied bacon didn’t taste as amazing as it usually down. But, it was still pretty tasty.

Very good service! We were outside and it was very noisy but I doubt you can no anything about it. Loved the muffins! I had avocado toast and the sourdough bread was tough to cut. My sisters loved their quiche. We were celebrating my sister’s birthday which I mentioned in my reservation. Nothing was said but no worries. We enjoyed it.

I have loved Murphy's for years - food, location, ambiance/ casual, cosy vibe. Their outside seating has definitely been a go-to, esp. in covid-times. It was a natural lunch pick when introducting a new friend to Virginia Highlands. Her text comment almost 8 hours after our meal said "Still thinking about that (lobster) salad today. It was seriously one of the best things I've ever tasted." My burger was awesome as well. Thank you Murphy's - you made our day.

Fried chicken sandwich was horrible. So over fried part of it was hallowed out inside. One half had some salvageable white meat. For $13 I was expecting a chicken breast but it was a mash up of dark and white meat. Ordered hot tea and was served what was named Luxury Tea. It was colorless and no taste. Horrible. Enjoyed the time with good friends but food was disgusting. Service was so-so. I told the server about the tea and he just removed it from the table without offering anything else or to take off bill.

For the prices of the food, it was not what you would expect. The fish (special of the day) was extremely bland and certainly not worth $28. There weren't many people in there and the service was average. We had been wanting to eat here for awhile, but was disappointed.

We only waited a few mins after we checked in for our reservations. They checked the whole parties temp before coming in. The food was absolutely amazing and if you are there for mimosas try the "executive mimosas" So Good!!!!!

Party of 3 for brunch on the outdoor patio. Ashton was a great server! We had crab cakes benedict, eggs Virginia, the Chilequiles and mimosas - we loved it all. The complimentary biscuits and muffins are such a nice touch and delicious! Murphy's is a consistently great experience every time. One of my all time favorite brunch spots!

I would mark all fives except our server changed mid-meal, perhaps due to low volume and an early afternoon off was offered. Service still very good, just a bit of a gap in what seemed like the transition in the middle. Both servers appeared competent and friendly and I assume without the swap either would have taken excellent care of us!

I have been to Murphy’s often for brunch and the food is usually great. My boyfriend and I went for lunch and the food was disappointing. I got the Fried Chicken Sandwich and it tasted like middle school cafeteria food. The server was kind enough to let me order something else and I got a burger. The burger lacked flavor, but was edible. The fries were great. Service was okay for this particular visit. The poor server was in the weeds and seemed to be serving 7-8 tables by himself. I have been a server all through college so I understood the struggle and he handled the rush as best as he could.

We went for Valentine’s Day & it was better than a regular day. We had reservations & they sat us IMMEDIATELY upon entry, & we were a few minutes early. Our waitress was AMAZING, kept us laughing, made sure we had enough champagne & everything. I’ll definitely go back on a busy day any time.

We were there for brunch on Valentine’s Day. We had an amazing experience and the food was great. I could not recommend enough or give any more praise. From the service, to the food, to the ambiance, to the social distancing... it made our Valentine’s Day brunch so special. Also, the executive mimosa was the perfect start to our day. So yummy!
