So glad we picked Murphy’s to celebrate our anniversary it was amazing from start to finish. The shrimp appetizer was so good, great sauce and bread for dipping. The prime rib and top sirloin were cooked perfectly. The cream of mushroom soup was probably the best I’ve had. The dessert was chocolate cake on the house for our anniversary was great. Murphy’s ambience was perfect for a special occasion or just a simple dinner. I will definitely be going back to try some other menu items.

This was our Anniversary Dinner and everything was outstanding. Ryan was our server and he did a superb job. The food was perfect from salad to dessert. Murphy's decor and setting is just right for Prescott AZ. The staff signed card for our celebration was a surprise touch and we thank them very much. A great evening for us. Our thanks to everyone.

It was a very nice birthday dinner. Prime rib could have been a little leaner and the calamari was a little
overcooked but the rest of the dinner was excellent especially the bread pudding.

Soups and salad came out before appetizers were finished, not that big of a deal. Then there was a long wait for entrees when the then acknowledged a mess up with order, and getting it right out. 20min later the food finally arrived. I ordered a medium rib eye. It arrived ultra rare. I could understand if they over cooked it after the additional 20min wait however I waited that long for it to be undercooked. Come on. Asked for it to be taken off the bill. Waitress was apologetic and handled it rather well for what I considered an inexperienced server.

Never once did I even see a manager around. On a Saturday night how is management not visible, and where were they to support their server and show some appreciation for the customer.

The potato, potato soup, muscles, and wife's scallops all tasted great. Ambiance was neat. Wish they came through on my much desired steak

We visited for a birthday and received many extra treats. The surf and turf special was very delicious. We started with the pecan-crusted brie which was well-prepared and presented. The entire dinner was well worth the drive to Prescott.

We are in the process of moving here and visit every few weeks eating out every night. Murphy’s is one of the best restaurants in Prescott. We both had the fresh Idaho trout and garlic mash , string beans with tortilla soup and all gluten free. Filleted and grilled to perfection without bones. I’m not sure whether it’s Prescott or the wait staff training but our server had the perfect balance of service and friendliness. We love this place.

way over priced for a regular meal, I asked for a romantic booth in my reservation and got a noisy table, with four different waiters ask for extra condiments and was served like I was at denny's ( bad denny's)
the food was cooked correctly, so compliments to the chef. owner's should frequent big city restaurants and try to copy if they are going to charge big city prices!

First off, the service was fantastic! We ordered the escargot and mussels for appetizers- escargot was perfect in size but the flavor was bland. The mussels were amazing: great flavor, steamed perfectly, and good in size. The fresh baked bread they make was scrumptious to dip into the mussels broth!!! My husband and I shared the 16 ounce prime rib: wonderful and their horseradish had a good amount of heat to it.

My steak was delicious. My wife's ribs were dry and tough. Waiter and then manager went out of their way to make it good for my wife. A little on the pricey side but it is a high level steak house.

I used to work at Murphy's, for five years! Then, Sunday Brunch was the best! I was really looking forward to sharing this dining experience with my family for my birthday, as it had been years since I had visited the establishment. Unfortunately, the menu was dramatically different. No trout? No salmon?
And though the service by Autumn and the hostess was wonderful, the food was only mediocre to my and my family's great disappointment.
It is my hope that if we return for dinner for a celebration, the menu will be as I remember it, with a variety of seafood options.
Thank you.

My husband and I celebrated my birthday. I booked using the app for that evening and noted it was my bday and that was the reason for the booking. We were greeted with a birthday card & birthday wishes from the hostess (who I think was one of the managers). My husband had the Idaho Trout (I stole some bites and it was amazing) and I had prime rib and lobster. Both meals were amazing!! We each had a few cocktails - my husband had an old fashioned which was good and I had a drink from their summer menu (summer breeze) - which I probably could have had all night!❤️ For my birthday, I got a free dessert... I picked the Creme Brûlée - it hit the spot!

We loved our meal there and will be taking our family there when they visit this fall!

There's been a change at Murphy's in the past few months. New chef and palpable attention to detail. Service has also improved dramatically. If you haven't been in a while, may be time to try again. Great happy hour, by the way.

We had a reservation for 6:00 on a Saturday night. We were seated immediately. We both ordered the chicken tortilla soup (very good). My husband had an 8 oz. prime rib and baked potato. He said it was excellent. I had the special, Scottish Salmon and rice pilaf with cauliflower and broccoli. The salmon was good but not great. We celebrated my husbands birthday, so the restaurant gave him a card, signed by all the staff and a piece of chocolate cake. The cake was awesome. Huge piece that four people could have eaten. All in all, it was a wonderful meal and the restaurant did a great job of making it a special night.

The service was great but the Ahi salad my friend had was over-cooked and not as good as it usually is.
I ordered the half chicken and it was way too much for me -- my fault. We agreed that we'll likely continue to come for Happy Hour in the future.

We made reservations at opentable twice and twice they showed us as a "no show" Food is good although I ordered a end cut prime rib which was medium compared to well done. Will try another restaurant next time.

All three meals that we ordered were completely inedible! The manager only took one meal off of our ticket, and they weren’t very nice about it. Could have been a lot better. Paid too much for meals we couldn’t eat.

We returned to Murphy's after a long absence. We had experienced mixed quality of entrees. We had a bowl and a cup of tortilla soup, a large salad and crab cakes. All were significantly better than our previous experience. We will return and try dinner entrees based on this experience.

The food and the service was excellent everything we ordered was cooked to perfection. The only negative was the very stingy pour on alcoholic beverages. I ordered a twelve dollar glass of wine to go with my steak dinner and I expected a lot more wine in the glass than I received. My partner ordered a vodka on the rocks also a very stingy pour.
