Great lunch for my husband’s birthday. We enjoyed the service and the ambiance. We had a nice quiet table in the back of the restaurant. We haven’t been to Murphy’s in a while and it was just as good, even better than we remembered.

Always a great place to take friends that don't get out much. The menu is varying enough to where there is something for every palate. And the prices won't break the bank. Easy to get to from midtown events and Piedmont Park.

We had to wait @ 20 minutes with a reservation and the entrance area was very crowded with no real waiting area. Our server was Inez, very pleasant, knowledgeable and professional. We had the calamari and the muscles for appetizers which were both fabulous. We had to ask for bread for dunking in the muscle broth. I had the range chicken, which was a nice sized breast that was very juicy and tasty. The mashed potatoes and asparagus served with the chicken were both delicious and flavorful. My spouse had the hanger steak which he said was perfect. A good night out in Virginia Highlands.

Do not order the french toast. It did not taste like a normal french toast. The ‘house fries’ were not cooked through properly and there was no flavor. There was more flavor in the onions and peppers that came with the potatoes. The Egg Benedict was very good. Their Jalapeño hollandaise sauce was not very different from the original. This place is okay. I was told later that this place has amazing desserts. Ill have to try them next time.

A quiet Monday evening Birthday dinner. Hadn’t been to Murphy’s in over 4 years - it didn’t disappoint. I tried a newer trout preparation, broiled and served on a bed a farro, mushrooms and diced asparagus with a garnish of peppered green pea purée. My husband opted for their classic brisket with mashed potatoes, carrots & green beens - we each heartily cleaned our plates. Attentive, helpful service without hovering or making us feel rushed. This one should still be on your list!

One of our favorite restaurants in Atlanta. Food was very good and service was good. Server did not know prices of specials and initially quoted wrong prices but corrected before orders were placed. I think restaurants should always give the prices of specials when announcing them. All the menu items have prices why not the specials. Takes alot of anxiety out of ordering the specials although I think many restaurants have specials so they can charge specially high prices on them and customers never ask. I have learned to always ask. That way I do not get sticker shock when the bill comes.

We dined here early on a Saturday evening. Two of us arrive dearly, so we sipped a glass of wine at the wine bar. The beverage manager recommended a great Verdejo. We were seated on the heated patio, which had a nice ambiance. I enjoyed the special of the night, a halibut risotto. My family also gave thumbs up to the sausage meatloaf, seared tuna salad, and Murphy burger. For dessert, you can’t go wrong with the bonzo cake or toll house pie.

We go to Murphy’s very often, in fact when we have out of town guests we take them there.
I asked for the scallops featured but asked if I could have it over mashed potatoes. I’ve recently be released from the hospital and am sensitive to garlic. The waiter said he’d have to ask the chef because I’m making so many changes.
Ok, decided to join my husband and ordered their chicken with mashed potatoes. Perhaps we had an off night, as the chicken was very fatty. We’ve had it often and normally love it. Just not what we’re accustomed to.

I had been meaning to try Murphy's for a long time, and it did not disappoint. I really liked the outdoor seating, but the inside space was also cool. They have a great wine selection, and the food menu was unique but not overly complicated. Most importantly, everything we ordered was delicious, and the service was great too!

Sunday brunch was good but everything is a la cart which will push your bill #UP
My wife wasn't pleased with how the kitchen prepared her egg whites. After sending them back twice and still not pleased, she told the waitress to just take it off the bill. Waitress indicated that she couldn't do it because it was sent back twice. Wife indicated it wasn't her fault that the kitchen couldn't get it right; manager removed eggs from bill.

Dinner was exceptionally good, the trout and three times seared hangar with the piquepoul rose. Server Stephanie was excellent, enthusiastic, knowledgeable of the menu and wine list and attentive at the right times. Patio seating was the best table for two among what was offered. We will be back soon.

This was our first time here and we very much enjoyed it. The food was great and our service was awesome. Our favorite part of the meal was the dessert trio. Yummy! Definitely give yourself time to find parking, however. It took us a while to find a spot, as we went on a Saturday night. We’ll definitely be back! :)

So close. I was bummed with the coq a vin. I’ve had it many a times, and it was not good. The drinks were a bit on the light side. Everything else was fantastic: everyone else’s food, dessert, service, etc. I paid for it, so the subpar drinks and my meal made the bill hard to swallow.

Once the loud table seated next to us left, we had a lovely dinner on the patio. The noise level was not indicative of Murphy's, just the loud dining companions next to us.

My Irish guy says the corned beef and colcannon are legit, best he's ever had. That keeps us coming back to spend St. Patrick's Day at Murphy's. Add a great table on the patio and live Irish music to the mix and you've got a winner!

Murphy's, as usual, was great in most respects. My family and I have been going there since Tom Murphy's previous location (nearby) at least 25 years ago. It is an Atlanta gem and we have celebrated many special occasions and non-special occasions there. My only complaint about this visit is that after we were seated at a requested (window) table (reserved well in advance through Open Table), they opened large glass doors to the outside (just inches from us). This brought in uncomfortably cool outside air. When I asked that the doors be closed again, they refused to do so. They did offer to move us to a dark place farther in, but my reservation had specified window seats if available and I did not want to move to a dark corner. This was my only complaint and I still don't understand why the doors (which were closed when we were seated) could not remain closed and keep me and my guest (and perhaps others) more comfortable. The service was attentive, as usual, and the food fairly good. I made the mistake of ordering from the special St. Patrick's Day menu and had overly salty corned beef. My guest had the Guinness beef from the regular menu and that is what I will order next time. The tortilla soup was delicious, as was the special bread pudding for dessert.

First time going to Murphy's and really enjoyed the brunch. The occasion was my birthday. There was valet parking for $2.00 which is not bad at all. The service was very good & food was very tasty. I will definitely go again & highly recommend this place to anyone that's tired of eating at the same places over and over. Murphy's was very refreshing and shabby chic!
