    Has been consistently good for decades. Murphy’s is one of those places that you can come back to after years and it is the same reliable spot you’ve always known it to be. They’ve had the trout on the menu since I was in college 20 years ago, and I still love it. Great cocktails, approachable wine list, and the entrees won’t make you have to mortgage your home. Solid dining establishment. I hope it stays around for another few decades.

    Our dinner was at 6:30 and I was quite disappointed that the special-sea bass- had already been gone by the time i ordered. Appetizers also came out almost 30 minutes after our initial order. I have eaten in Murphy’s numerous times and always pleased by everything and so quite surprised by lowered standards.

    Our server definitely wasn’t interested in being our server. There was a little hair in my crab cake too 🥴. But other than that, the experience was okay.

    Love this place! Food was great. Service a little slow because they were swamped but it gave us more time to chat. It was also pretty noisy on the patio, so we shouted a bit. Nevertheless, always a favorite, thanks.

    A friend and I ate dinner here on a Thursday evening. Our server was pleasant and attentive. We split the calamari app, but felt that the oil was a bit old, so we didn’t eat much of it. I had the chicken and my friend had the burger. Portions were sizeable and flavor was good for the price point. This is a good spot for a casual dinner with friends.

    Disappointed in the food experience this time around. Usually very happy at Murphy’s with the quality but burger was not juicy and lacked flavor and the egg dishes just ok. Best part of the meal was the biscuits and the dessert.

    I tend to go to Murphy's because of the ambiance, convenient location and the ability to book a reservation. At brunch yesterday, the service was quite disappointing...slow initial contact, slow to take order, coffee cup empty until I grabbed someone. The linda's omelette was in no way thrilling. The breads that are served upon being seated are always warm, tasty and much appreciated.

    We went out for dinner with old friends on a random Thursday night, got there about 20 mins early and it still took about 20 minutes for someone to come get our drink order. After learning there were 2 Wedding receptions there at the same time, we were understanding. The food was amazing, hot and flavorful. Definitely recommend if you don’t mind sitting for a bit, it’s not a fast food restaurant afterall.

    I’ve always loved Murphy’s but it’s not as good as it used to be. I got the fall sangria which was great, but the calamari appetizer was horrible and tasted like rubber. Dinner and dessert were good, not great. Just overall okay.

    Really delicious meal for all of us. We had Salmon and Brisket and both were delicious. Not very crowded so noise level was low. Our service was very, very good. Food was a little slow coming out but other than that...it was a 5 star experience.

    Haven't been to Murphy's in quite some time, I remember it to be a very nice restaurant. This time I was not disappointed. The ambiance is very nice, quiet and relaxing. I hate loud restaurants, Murphy's is very comfortable and pleasant to dine in. My meal and my dates were excellent and the service was spot on. I look forward to another visit.
