The ambiance and service are always great , however the food this time was somewhat disappointing. I had the spinach omelette which was normal, but did not move my taste buds. When you go to Murphy's as in the past one expects food beyond normal. Our server was amazing doing everything possible to make us happy. I don't have his name handy but hope that management will let him know how much he was appreciated. The grilled pound cake with a peach topping was fantastic. My guest was disappointed with her crab cake in that she thought there was like a English muffin was stuffed inside of it. She did not send it back and just accepted it.

Murphy's remains a Virginia Highlands Fav! Went there Tuesday night. While waiting for our table, we were entertained really, by an outstanding bar-tender. Super-friendly, informative and great at his job! The service continued to be excellent throughout dinner. Had the bolognese lasagna, also tasted the ribeye (wow, great sauce!) and the brisket. Planning our return trip already!

I was not very impressed by the “crab cake” Benedict. It was more of a mound of crab meat tucked under the eggs. The place was very noisy and we were put into a two top table in a corner when there were several nicer tables available. Service also lacked. For the price, I was underwhelmed.

Murphy's menu variety and quality of food has maintained its high standards through the years. And i should know we have been going there for over 20 years. We always take visitors and friends there because one of the best draws is you stay open past the traditional lunch hours!

I'd also like to mention that we try and get Lauren as our server, because she is always a pleasure, knowledgeable about the food and wine and specials of the day. A great person with a great attitude, we love her!

They changed the menu. More limited, but still a lovely meal experience. It was my friends birthday and they brought a small sweet treat - much smaller than what had been provided on previous birthday celebrations.

Food was high quality and perfectly cooked, but unfortunately quite bland for both our entrees. Dessert was excellent. Atmosphere was why we came and it was as expected. Service was great.

Murphy's does an outstanding brunch. It was so good, I came back two days later. Their ingredients are fresh, the atmosphere is pleasant and the service was great both times. I highly recommend Linda's Omelet and their nitro cold brew coffee. Delicious!

I truly forgot what a gem Murphy's is.When the Donlan children all lived in town, it was our "go to" Brunch place, but they have all scattered to the wind, and we found other places in our ever growing Atlanta dining scene. The Giving Kitchen dining initiative brought us back, and we were glad to rediscover this VH old friend!

We had a party of six for a birthday celebration. We all ordered the sole and each of us found it amazing. One of the best dishes that I have had in quite a while!

Murphy's is always dependable. Good food, reasonable space for business discussion (I did ask for a secluded table), good service. Parking is sometimes challenging (at lunch that is, I think there is a valet at dinner). And you always seem to run into someone you know. You really can't miss at Murphey's.

We need to remind ourselves to look at the menu before we book. We go to Murphy’s fairly regularly. But when we got there we found the usual mussels was not on the menu. So....we went with the trout (her) and the seared tuna salad. (It should be noted that the trout listed on the menu, is not on the Web site menu. So, it’s unreliable, as it is.) Both trout and tuna were good with a bottle of ‘The Ned,’ a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.

If there’s a favorite dish at Murphy’s and you don’t see it on the menu, you might wanna call.

Usually I have a good experience. However, this time food was not very hot in temperature when we received it. Also, the server was not attentive. We had to ask another server for our bill.

It was the first time that I hadn’t loved my dish. I had the market fish. It was not as good or well seasoned as I’d expected. It was the first time I was disappointed by Murphy’s. The food has always been delicious. The grilled artichokes also needed more flavor. I asked for drawn salted butter and that helped. Cookies were delicious.

We had not been in Murphy’s for almost 20-years. No reason why, we remembered it was good but the place, it was just not top of mind. But we were meeting some people for a birthday dinner and Murphy’s was centrally-located.
Wow! Murphy’s is definitely top of mind now.
Great food, service, atmosphere. Good prices for the quality of food, and a great neighborhood vibe.
We’ll be back... soon.

Birthday lunch with a friend. Had the mango chicken salad which was uninspired, seriously boring, not at all worthy.

I’ve been to Murphy’s many times. Usually it’s a dependably good meal. Tonight was not. Something was just off. Our server was clearly running around, but did her best.

First, I ordered the soup, which was basically just salsa. The steak was very greasy and too fatty to enjoy. My first drink, the watermelon drink, was too bitter. My date had the mushroom soup and she loved it. Then she had the steak salad and thought it was just ok. I enjoyed nothing I ordered, but she at least loved the soup. For the price paid for dinner, it was not a good meal. Highly disappointed.

Great food as always. Noise level from adjacent tables was very high and disturbing. Service was slow despite a hard working waitress. Have enjoyed Murphy’s for years and will continue...hoping next time for a less noisy experience.

Food was just average. I guess I expected more from a restaurant that is so well known. The server was nice, but a bit over attentive, she kept breaking into our discussion for somewhat unimportant questions.
