The beet salad with goat cheese and pistachios was fabulous. The ribeye steak was cooked perfectly and was a generous portion. The trout was light and delicious. The wine selection is vast with many great options at various price points.

I was having dinner with an old friend. We hadn’t seen each other in a long time. Ross, our server, did a great job of being attentive while giving us space to talk. Thank you so much for a lovely evening.

Highly recommended and making plans to return soon!

This is my favorite restaurant in all of Atlanta! The Guinness Braised Brisket is probably one of the BEST items on the menu! It’s so delicious! Their bakery is also wonderful! My most recent visit was taken care of by waitress, Lauren! She was excellent and very knowledgeable of everything on the menu!

Had a wonderful time and the food was amazing. The noise level was a bit much but then what does one expect when they come on Summer Fest. Did not know about that annual event - definitely would like to come back next year and check out your wine tasting!

Murphy's is the quintessential local neighborhood restaurant. Have dined there many times and every meal has been outstanding. They are always accommodating for changing requests. Everyone has a smile and makes you feel welcome. The food is incredible. Everyone in our family loves the restaurant. The area in which it is located has nice bars, a gelato shop and other businesses for a post meal stroll. I have also taken business clients there and they likewise have truly enjoyed it - quiet for good conversations while enjoying top quality food and drinks. Very comfortable atmosphere and meals which are always memorable.

Generally Murphy's is reliably much better than average. The noise level that night was more than we usually encounter. I wish every restaurant in Atlanta would invest in some sound dampening.

I chose Murphy’s because it was an old landmark restaurant. I was hosting new people to the area who happened to be our son, his in-laws, a baby and toddler. Usually children are served pretty quickly, but it was awhile before our orders were taken. A glass of wine didn’t come until we were all done eating. We were disappointed in our food. ( I have never complained before and almost didn’t write this review.)

Your menu continues to be outstanding; there is something for everyone. All the food was generous, well plated and very good. The only short-fall was too much salt (way too much salt!) on the protein, the potatoes, and the salad dressings. Not only does so much salt take away from the tasted of the food, but it can be unhealthy for many of your diners. We had the trio dessert: that was really outstanding, especially for the price.

Highly sought after but quite mediocre experience.
Very good wait staff, but each and every entree lack luster - there was no amount of salt, pepper, and lemon juice available to resurrect the trout (regular on the menu) or special halibut, from being anything other than bland and tasteless. Steak entree overcooked. Caesar salad under dressed and basically tasteless. Wine price point quite high. In a city of upcoming restaurants, I'm afraid Murphy's is lost on tradition and the fact that it's a trendy and comfortable dining neighborhood. I'm sorry to have to write this review.
