This was the second year that we dined at Murphy’s for our anniversary. It did not disappoint. We had excellent service with Bailee as our server, she was efficient, friendly and paced our dinner perfectly. The dinner was delicious, the Prime Rib was outstanding, the halibut which was the dinner feature was good but topped with a very heavy amount of Pesto, which we would have on the side next time. The fish was perfectly cooked.
We continue to dine at our local restaurants and Murphy’s is always on the top of our favorite lists.

We had an overall really good experience. We were seated immediately. Are server came right away for our drink orders. We were given plenty of time to peruse the menu. Our food came in a timely manner. I had crab cakes and a wedge salad. Crab cakes were very good. Plenty of crab and not too much filler. Not the best I ever had, but I did grow up on the east coast. We got a side of asparagus that were cooked absolutely perfect. So good! My wife had a lobster tail which she said was very good. Had an apple dessert. Can't remember what it was called, but it was really good.
I will definitely go back and I recommend Murphy's to all.

The ambiance of the restaurant is great. The service good, but a little slow. Had to ask for my card back upon paying. The food was good, but definitely over priced.

Wanted to try it out for our anniversary.

This place was probably awesome twenty years ago. In terms of atmosphere., and COVID sure doesn’t help. We came for a late lunch and the food was pretty good. I wouldn’t not go back.

This was a birthday celebration for my husband. The did right by having a birthday card on the table with Hershey's kisses on the table. We had to wait at least 10 minutes before our waitress came to our table. We ordered an appetizer, soup/salad and our dinners. No sooner did we start to eat the appetizer did our soup/salad arrive. We hadn't even finished our soup/salad when the dinner arrived. Twice they tried to take our plates before we were finished. Then our waitress brought the check without asking if we wanted to have dessert and when we questioned, then offered a free dessert. The dinner was bland at best. We won't be returning and will not recommend this restaurant.

Went for a night out with my grandson. Have been here many times and have always given it a five. But tonight was different. Waitress was distracted in fact after he saw how she interacted with the hostess he thought she would be rude. She was not, but she was distracted and got both of mine and my grandson’s meal wrong and had to go back right when we got them. They gave us a dessert to compensate but we were already done.

Took some good friends to thank them for taking care of our home while on vacation. They appreciated the ambience with proper social distancing for two couples. Served separate bread and butter for each couple. Steaks cooked perfectly to medium rare and well as requested by each person. Good wine service. Thank you for making a special thank you for our friends.

Murphys is one of the finer dining establishments in Prescott, AZ. Our dinner was an anniversary celebration and out table was immediately ready upon arrival with a staff signed anniversary card at the table. Our booth was midway between the entrance and the back of the house which helped mitigate background sounds.
Our meals were seared scollops and ribeye. Both cooked to perfection in my opinion. A loaf of freshly cooked bread was also served.
Dasia, took our orders, offered information about the salmon specials and was attentive and available as we dined. She was very friendly and conversational.
She offered to have our champagne re-corked too. This was most appreciated.
I didn't know dessert was "on the house" until Dasia reminded us. We split a delicious apple crumble but I wish I had known of this gift a little earlier.
I recommend Murphys, especially for a special occasion even in view of the C19 restrictions.

Best ribeye I’ve had in a really long time. Cooked perfectly. Lots of food but a little on the pricey side for the food. Drinks were priced like anywhere else.

We ordered the prime rib and both of us were disappointed. It was bland, no flavor to speak of. We went there for my birthday because of the prime rib.

The bread pudding more than made up for our disappointment in the prime rib. It’s wonderful! We’ll go back but will probably order the fillet instead.

I recommend taking advantage of the bar if you’re interested in happy hour drinks or appetizers, as those special prices are exclusive to the bar.
That said, we didn’t feel as though we missed out on anything by going directly to the table. We enjoyed a wonderful meal and a drink, feeling no less satisfied when the check came.
The champagne vinaigrette dressing was a flavorful addition to the house salad; accompanied with a warm loaf of bread and creamy butter. My wife’s 8oz prime rib dinner was tender delicious and generously portioned; as was my fettuccine with creamy, flavorful parmesan sauce. The only unfortunate part of the meal was that we left no room for dessert; however, every bite of the meal was worth the loss:-)
I highly recommend Murphy’s for enjoying a wonderful meal with someone special, as I look forward to returning on my next visit to Prescott.
Happy trails!

We truly enjoyed our meal here. The service was excellent! And the food was delicious. We started out with salads, and I would highly recommend the house salad with the champagne vinaigrette. It was fantastic. The tortilla soup on the other hand was very different, like no other tortilla soup that we've ever had. We tried the chicken, the seared Ahi, and the filet mignon. Everything was cooked perfectly and the sides were very generous and delicious. Our server oh, Ryan, was attentive and very helpful. The general manager stopped by and had a lovely chat with us. We enjoyed the desserts, we had the chocolate cake and the carrot cake. Both were very good. And if you're feeling adventurous try the peanut butter whiskey. Because when in Prescott....

We made a reservation at the last minute, the staff was friendly and warm, prompt and made our 28th Wedding Anniversary so special by greeting us with a card all signed by the staff and a dessert of our choice on the house!

Made reservations for 4 which took some time as it was programmed for 2.
We ordered Calamari Fritti which was not as what I expected. More batter than calamari, very, very thin.
We also had the house salad with Tortilla soup which was very good, and Chicken Caesar salad which also very good.

So overall it was 3-4 stars.

Definitely need to improve on the calamari.

Every single item we ordered was outstanding and had a significant amount of value for the cost. Spectacular dinner for 2 for a little over a hundred dollars with far more food than we could actually ever eat. Would absolutely recommend for a very special occasion or a fancy dinner date.
