    This was our first time at Murphy’s and it did not disappoint. Loved the building itself, the history, sitting in a booth was great. Our server was awesome! The food was also excellent. My wife had the scallops and wow, I had a bite! Amazing! Prime rib was also very good. If you love to really dine then you have to try Murphy’s while visiting Prescott.

    I had not been to Murphys in a very long time and when I was in Prescott for a special occasion I thought this would be a wonderful place for a meal. I made a reservation and that was very easy. I like the atmosphere and our evening table setting. Our server was very nice and attentive. I was disappointed in the bread that was brought to the table. I could tell it was probably frozen and proofed and baked on site, but the texture of the bread was just air. No texture, no flavor. It was just plain white bread. The herb butter was flavorful. I was surprised at the very small selection of fish and the server did not recommend one of their specials. My partner wanted prime rib, so he was set on his dish. I was underwhelmed by the selections and I chose the prime rib stroganoff, a $38 meal. And it was not offered with a side. A local had recommended it to me. A server brought to us the wrong meals at first. I know people can make mistakes. When our meals were served I was not happy with the look and taste of the stroganoff. It was flavorless. The noodles were clumped together and the sauce was minimal. The pieces of prime rib were present. Equal portioned to the amount of pasta. I added salt and pepper to the meal, but still no flavor. I was disappointment. I did not want to complain to the server. I should have just asked for a side salad. My partners prime rib $45 was medium rare as he ordered. The truffle fries were crisp and flavorful, but not worth the $2 up charge. Because it was a birthday celebration we were offered dessert and the cheesecake was a generous portion to share. My young adult memory of Murphy's did not meet my expectations of a wonderful meal like I remembered. After speaking with some locals about dinner options I would go somewhere else.

    The service was great, the food not so much. Sadly 4 of the dinners came out cold, two of the others (pork chop and roasted chicken) were tough and dry. The side order of rice pilaf was dry and had no taste. It’s too bad the food was so awful because we had great service and the atmosphere was nice. The manager did make it right with the bill. Overall the staff was great, but the food leaves something to be desired.

    Service is friendly and the old historic feel is nice! Wine selection is limited if you want it by the glass. Prices are slightly higher than you'd expect. The food taste is lacking: bread is okay; filet lacked flavor and didn't taste prime; prime rib was overcooked; mashed potatoes aren't that great. Overall flavor is lacking but experience is nice enough

    I have been coming to Murphy’s for 11 years when I visit Prescott. This visit was the worst. The service was very slow and poor. It took a tremendous amount of time to get the main dish and the sides we forgotten. The food was dry and not as good as it used to be. Very disappointing.

    Steak on the kabob was very tough - not a good quality of meat. The Ahi had fat running through it - at least half was unedible.

    A nicely restored historic building provided lovely ambiance for good service, amazing craft cocktails, and delicious food. Gluten free options are well-marked and wait staff easily understood my food allergy concerns. The kitchen served up a wonderful meal that was safe for me. Ribs that fall off the bone and taste scrumptious are hard to find. Located just off the main square, it was easy to find and a quick walk from numerous downtown activities.

    Waiter was rude. Waiter advised they didn’t have sugar free syrup, which I found strange for such a nice restaurant. Waiter forgot to get my eggs and forgot to get the home made potatoes for one other person in our party. Took waiter a long time to refill my coffee. It got pretty cold when the door was opened.

    A real mixed bag: Bailee was a great server. The Signature Crab Cakes and Pan Seared Scallops were excellent, except for the uncooked green beans accompanying the scallops. The grilled asparagus was also raw and served room temp: the parmesan shavings and scoop of whipped butter stayed intact. The deconstructed shrimp cocktail was a flawed concept imperfectly prepared: the shrimp's texture led me to believe they'd been in the fridge for awhile. Bailee offered to have the vegetables cooked further, but by then I had no confidence in the chef to handle vegetables (crab cakes and scallops YES--so a head scratcher). The overriding factor in the 2 Star rating was a very unpleasant musty smell that slowly settled in. I think the carpet was the culprit---generally not a good idea in a restaurant, particularly if it's not shampooed regularly.

    The onion soup was so over the top salty and inedible. The cheese plate was awful. Tasteless pieces of toast with mozzarella, goat cheese & blue cheese. Dry cold pieces of chicken …. Strange. The pesto pasta was swimming in a soup of pesto sauce. The ahi sandwich was inedible as well. We decided to just count our losses and not order dessert. The waitress & busboy were nice though. Not their fault.

    We have been eating at Murphy’s in Prescott az for 30 years. We do love the old historic look. We have notice over the years and new chiefs that the food quality and taste has declined over the years. The food isn’t bad but doesn’t Match the prices they charge. So many places in Prescott with very good food with better prices. But when it comes to the romantic look and great service then this is a great place to try.
