Food was excellent as was the service.

However, we were seated outside. As it was cold and rainy, initially the area was warm and nice.

Then the staff turned the ac on. It became fridgid. This was because the ac also cools the kitchen and shares the vent for the outside area. Since the kitchen staff needed to be cooler, the outside area becasme very cold. They did try to alternate the ac with heat, but that really did not work. We almost left.

Murphy's has been there for over 15 + years. You'd think they would have hired a HVAC contractor to solved this by now. The staff was aware of this and did apologize.

It essentially ruined the evening.

We were seated right away outside but very quickly moved to the covered patio when it started to rain. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive but didn't linger, and the food was outstanding.

My only problem was with the noise factor-made by an 18 wheel delivery truck parked next to the outdoor seating during the lunch hour. It was there for over 30 minutes.
While it won't affect my review, this should not be happening at Noon.

They will not seat you until your entire party has arrived, so you are forced to loiter in their entryway until everyone is there instead of enjoying appetizers/drinks while you wait. Waitress was pleasant and the food was good.

Live out of town but remembered Murphy’s from years ago. We were not disappointed! The food was great…calamari just as remembered. Service was very good despite lack of help in many restaurants these days. We will return next time we are in Atlanta!

Murphy’s is consistent in delivery of a great dining experience regarding customer service and quality/taste of your gastronomic offerings. I’m so glad that Murphy’s was able to physically transform during this challenging time and offer even more outdoor dining options. My choice of shrimp and grits with chicken sausage was a perfect choice. It was scrumptious and I will definitely order it again. The blueberry basket with 3 different condiment options is always a tasty treat. Thank you Murphy’s for all that you do to please our taste buds.

My main complaints were adjusting temperature out on patio, and normally when we’ve gone to Murphy’s for a birthday they comp the dessert, and server did not. Additionally an automatic gratuity was added of 20% but no one informed us of this change. Food was excellent however and my mom enjoyed everything, especially everyone on patio singing Happy Birthday to her.

Food is good - and comes out in a timely fashion. Highly recommend the Buttermilk Pancakes and the Crab Cake Benedict. There is also a wonderful patio to sit and enjoy the sun while you have brunch. I will say this - the service and friendliness of the staff could be improved.

Great "farm to table" menu. Food delicious with good presentation. Ambience - a little too dark and sparse decor. Server good but had to be prompted by requests. Felt like server was rushing us, in spite of restaurant not being full and it was a very early reservation. All in all a B+ and we would definitely eat there again.

We’ve been eating at Murphy’s for past 20 years. Dropped in yesterday for lunch and sat outside in the courtyard. Love the ambience; relaxing and casual. The lunch special of soup, half sandwich and salad is very filling. Our waiter had the best attitude I have seen in a very long time. My husband reached out to a group of ladies celebrating their friends birthday. He told her happy birthday and remarked that his birthday was next week. We were not aware that our waiter was in the area and overheard the conversation. After our meal our waiter brought us a slice of their famous Tolhouse pie with vanilla ice cream. He said this was complimentary in honor of my husband’s upcoming birthday. We love Murphy’s!
