We dined outside and it was a great experience. Appetizers, margaritas and steaks were all excellent.

Service is always slow. A craft house yet they do not have a beer menu for every table.

Order was wrong. Asked for asparagus to replace mushrooms instead replaced rice. Coleslaw was not fresh and tasted strange. Poor combination of flavors. Fish was cold. Humus was tasteless. More chips than fish. Server came to table twice. Chips over salted.

We had to wait to be seated when the place was basically empty. We waited 10 minutes until we finally sat ourselves and then my husband went back to check us in. The server only checked on us twice times during the whole meal. Once to get our order and once to bring us our check. The food was delicious as always and we will be going back. Hopefully we will get a better server next time!

We made reservations & arrived about 15 minutes early. We were seated right away & had a table reserved with our name. By far, the best reservation experience over any restaurant to date. Food was wonderful. However, it was quite noisy because it was so busy & since my dad is hard of hearing we didn't stay long after dinner.

Overall not bad had reservations for 7 and no wait. Not crowded at all for a Sat night. The steak sandwich and wings were very good. My wife got the ribeye which looked like a NY Strip we asked the waiter about it a d he said they all look like that. It was a tough pc of meat to say the least. The prices seem to be 20% higher than the other location in Fishers for the same menu. We might try it again and sit out on the patio.

Mother’s Day meal was a success! They had a buffet which had a myriad of options along with a coffee bar! It was louder than normal because it was absolutely packed! The service was phenomenal.

Meh pretty mediocre. Had been looking forward to trying location and was disappointed. Dark enough that not certain of cleanliness. Pizza not sizzling hot (starting to get mushy under the crust). Hubby’s steak fairly thin. Cocktail list short and unimaginative and the “craft” beers were common varieties. Will not go back

We made a reservation for Mother’s Day and we didn’t realize that for a 1pm reservation we were getting a buffet for breakfast. Several of us didn’t eat and grabbed a pizza after. We’re not big on buffets so it was disappointing.

Overall, the food and service were just okay for a Mother's Day brunch. I've been here previously and had great food and service. The manager seemed a bit frazzled and unorganized when we arrived. He couldn't find our reservation so he told the hostess to seat us at the "community" table, with high chairs. It was so wide, there was no way to have a conversation with the person across from you. We requested another table, since in my reservation I requested low seating because my 75-year old mother was dining with us. He told the hostess to, "put them over there," and pointed to a dirty table next to the bar. We waited for the table to be cleared and finally asked about getting seated and were rudely told, "I told you that you could sit over there." Were we supposed to seat ourselves or wait for the hostess to seat us? We weren't sure. Our waiter was helpful and attentive. I'm not sure we'll be back, at least for Mother's Day; maybe we'll try Murphy's Crafthouse when it isn't a holiday.

Attended mother's day brunch with family. White the food was very good, the dining experience wasn't great. Our table was next to brunch line so between traffic and crowded walk way it wasn't very enjoyable at all. Our waiter wasn't very attentive and ask two different times if our bill was ready to be checked out while I was still eating. Again, the food was quite good but I'm not sure I would go back for the brunch.

Most of the bacon was not cooked all the way at the time we were eating and the food was lukewarm. My son and I went to see the chicks and bunnies, but when we got back to our table, the busboy had cleared all of our plates and cups. We were not finished eating. I kind of felt like we were getting pushed out the door and we had not even been there for an hour. I was very disappointed at this time.

Food was decent except the crab cakes we're not good. The service was terrible, our waiter seemed very overwhelmed. He would take one or two of our drink or food orders and then leave the table without asking anybody else if they wanted anything. We were there for two hours and only managed to get one drink each and and 2 appetizers. We left to go have dinner somewhere else.

We have eaten here before and enjoyed it so we wanted to celebrate our anniversary here. We were seated at a table that was not clean, a server walked by later and asked if we wanted cups and silverware?? On the wall it states Tuesday Steak Special. We were informed that wasn’t Happening.
Expecting a nice relaxing celebration, we were very much disappointed.

We generally love this place but this wasn’t our best experience. We were celebrating a birthday but staff didn’t acknowledge that at all. Most restaurants provide a complimentary dessert or something. A fruit cup would have been great in this case as the birthday girl watches her sugar intake. Also, one person in our group ordered a steak cooked medium, but it was rare at best. After asking the server to take it to the cook to put it back on the fire, it came back still too rare. He was tempted to send it back a second time but the waitress didn’t circle back in time to do so. Many restaurants will often provide an adjustment due to the inconvenience as a goodwill gesture. Several in our party had not eaten at Murphy’s Craft House yet, so it was a shame things didn’t go better for them.

Great food as it made from scratch. Not frozen or semi-prepared elsewhere then finished in the kitchen. Like sister location Murphy's Pub House. Have been to both. Outstanding for a neighborhood bar/grill.

Ashley is the poster child for a perfect server. She stated she has been there right at a year, but appears to know everything. Very personable and engaging w/entire table, knows the menu well, great recommendations, has a knack for being at table at right time w/a smile, and has pride in her job. All server practices typically compromised unless dinning in the southern U.S.

Our wives were happy, thus we were happy and will be back!

I’ve been here before, that why I made a reservation. I was unaware that they were closing at 10 PM on New Years Eve? Some how the guest needs to know this

We had reservations and still waited 1/2 hour to be seated with our guests who had never been there before. To compensate we were given two free appetizers but they took forever and the soups and salads came before the appetizers. Our waitress was great and kept apologizing. The food took forever but was mostly great. Cod fish was not good. Also they ran out of baked potatoes but never told us and substituted mashed potatoes without asking us what we wanted in place.

My husband and I eat there often and love it. Need work on big group serving. Kitchen was way backed up. Our guests were fine but first impression for them was not the best. We will continue to support Murphy’s but not sure would bring a big group there again.

Thanks. Hope this helps to improve in future.

Usually fantastic but it this trip....we waited 20 minutes to be seated with a reservation and then waited over an hour for two hamburgers, chicken fingers and a fried egg sandwich. It was a disappointment and the waitress indicated she would let the manager know about the delay but then nothing happened. An apology for the delays would have been appropriate.

We didn’t have a good experience. The waitress disappeared for long periods of time(very long periods) we had to either ask another person or go find her ourselves. She was not attentive at all! Not to mention that it was a busy Sunday due to breakfast with Santa, however we were seated in the bar, against bar, against the wall, against the stage, right next to Santa in the bar! Our little bit of space was invaded by families, crying babies, rude waitress that needed things from the outside of the bar where we were already butted against. We eventually left after 1.5 hour with only having a drink.
