We had a little getaway planned and decided to splurge on dinner. I’m so glad we did because the food, drinks and service were excellent!! And the prices weren’t too outrageous. Our server Kelly was friendly and on top of everything! I had the halibut and my husband had prime rib and lobster tail.

My companion had the mussels appetizer and I had the salmon with garlic mashed potatoes and haricots verts. My meal was quite good. They served a small loaf of bread, which was avoided by my companion due to gluten sensitivity, but of which I enjoyed a couple of slices. Service was a bit slow for a 6 p.m. reservation, perhaps due to the staffing level, but the server was very good. My previous dish there was the seared ahi, which I will avoid in the future, because I make it better at home.

They did not recognize our reservation. The quality of the food good but the preparation could have been better. The scallops were a bit under cooked in the center and the steak lacked a crispy skin.

I had the escargot and it had to be the best I've ever had!
Two of us had the ahi tuna dinner and it was soooo delicious!
One had fried chicken and he liked it a lot!
One had a pork chop. He missed that it came with roasted corn and onion risotto black pepper bourbon gravy. It smothered the pork chop and was not appealing at all. Our bad!
They were understaffed as most are these days but have to give the staff, especially the bartender, who was working the bar and serving food in the restaurant.

The hostess had a attitude, and when she put us with about 20 people in a very small place and told us that there was another large party coming in with the ceiling about 6 Ft tall and when we told her we could not be here because of health reasons she had even bigger attitude and we explained we had reservations and there were so many tables open in a more open space, we finally got seated after talking to the manager of the restaurant, so it started out uncomfortable and it did not get better and food was not worth it.

Had yet another wonderful meal at Murphy’s. This time I ordered their Caesar salad and asked to have blackened salmon on it because I know their blackened chicken is delicious. They accommodated and it was spectacular! Our server Calen was awesome! So friendly and attentive. I hope we have him as our server all of the time!

Murphy’s used to be one of the best restaurants to go to in Prescott. I realize it’s not like it used to be from 10, 15 or even 20 years ago, but someone needs to bring back the original homemade bread and delicious food they used to serve. As for our service tonight, it seemed we were an inconvenience to our server. Not cool when you drop $150.00 on food and service that’s not worth $150.00!!!

Our lovely server (I since forgotten her name she had red hair and cool glasses) was very sweet and knowledgeable about the food and wine. We were even delighted to some opera style singing one of the talented staffers sand another guest happy birthday! It was awesome. Very cool old school decor inside.

It started out great although we had to wait on our reservation. Ordered food, took forever and they forgot our salads. The seared ahi was awful and everything else was average. My first glass of wine was in a nice glass and a 9 oz pour, second glass was cheap little glass and wasn’t the same wine. Murphy’s used to be our favorite.

My husband and I went to Murphy's because we'd heard good things about it. However, our experience was quite the opposite. We were seated fairly quickly at our 6:30 reservation time on a Tuesday night, but then sat at our table for nearly 30 minutes without anyone even acknowledging us let alone taking a drink order or anything. Meanwhile 3 other tables / groups that came in and were seated after us had their drinks ordered, brought to them and meal orders taken.

At this point I went up to the hostess station since I wasn't sure who our waiter / waitress was supposed to be, so that I could speak with that person. Then proceeded to wait for about 10 minutes with the hostess never showing up. During this time another couple came in while I was waiting there and commented "What, does no-one live here?" I told them my situation and mentioned that now I can't even find out who our wait person is or let the hostess know she can have our table back because we are leaving. As such, my husband and I ended up just walking out menus still sitting on the table. I saw the couple that came in while I was at the hostess station leaving too as we pulled away in our car. I've literally NEVER had to walk out of a restaurant due to such bad service. Terrible!

Since moving to Prescott we have been to Murphys several times and it always is a great choice. We love the food and the portions are quite ample.
We understand the restaurant business completely and realize there are times when things just don’t go 100%. This time our service was a bit slow but our server was pleasant. This little glitch won’t deter us from going to Murphys again.

looked forward to dining here. however, the special pasta/heirloom tomato dish was bland and the horseradish sauce tasted like sour cream--no zing at all. friendly wait staff; even when she asked me if I wanted catsup for my prime rib....

Couldve been better if our waitress wasn’t having a bad day. The birthday boy had to wait for his food because they didnt put the order in the first time. They didnt have anymore sirloins….. like how? So he had to get salmon. And it was pricey. So, not worth it. Wish it could’ve been better for this occasion.

We were seated in the bar. Not the dinning room. They never acknowledge the fact that it was a special occasion which I had mentioned when I made the reservation. The prime rib was terrible. It was tough and full of fat.

Server was slow and not that busy.

Mediocre food. Special of the day was $50, almost twice the other entrees, for a small piece of swordfish! Way overpriced and not announced up front. I felt tricked.

Once we were seated it was 22 minutes before a server came to our table!
We ordered prime rib, extremely tough! We both had less than a 1/4 of our 12oz prime rib!
Definitely will not eat there again!

Are they EVER going to change the years old musty carpet in that dining room? Wedge salad had very little dressing and the lettuce was luke warm, not cold and crispy. The prime rib was chewy and the baked potato had to have been baked the day before... old tasting! How can you mess up a baked potato?! Lastly, as hard as our waiter was trying, the service ,specifically bringing the food to the table without clearing our dirty salad and appetizer plates first, was inexcusable. He is standing there with the hot food in his hands with no place to put them. Were we supposed to bus our own table to make room for the main course? Will not be back.

Nice ambiance and seating arrangement. Each of our 3 orders was problematic. One pasta dish was lukewarm, my ribs were overdone and smothered in sauce and the scallops were not done as my wife requested (medium). Our server Briana was pleasant and efficient and took good care of us.
