Three of us dined on a Friday evening. The restaurant wasn’t very full, yet they seated two tables right next to us, so it was very close. Otherwise, our server was friendly and courteous, food was very good and prepared exactly as ordered. Recommend the Murphy burger and Springer Mountain Chicken. Great place for a casual dinner with friends.

Wash-Rinse-Repeat. Murphy's does not know the word 'disappoint'. Went for New Years dinner, and even with no special addressing pork, greens, beans -the quintessential New Years meal was provided! Arrived ahead of our reservation & immediately seated. Being a holiday, the staff was slightly off their timing however, not to any level of annoyance [we were out on a 'date' & enjoyed being 'out']. Brandon let us know the special (filet mignon on Tuesdays), produced bread, our drinks and let us cruise the menu. My pork on-bone chop over greens & beans was smoky, tender, tremendous flavor and perfect balance of protein/fat. My wife's pasta shrimp was delicious, tender and (most importantly) not spicy. Toll House Pie for dessert was very chocolatey with crunchy crust which we split.... saved the sweet potato creme brulee for next time.
The sole detrimental comment was a table of three couples and their four small children whom were quite loud and restless after their meal was cleared away. Nothing to do about that, just noting that it was very obvious.

Murphy’s is an old stand by for us, and has been for many, many years. I was very disappointed. I ordered the special, and after the order was placed was told they were out of it. I ordered the chicken and it was not good (how do you mess up chicken)? Our server was very nice, but seemed a little out of things. She forgot drinks, and waited 15 minutes after we ordered to tell us they were out of the special (at 7:30 pm). Maybe it was a rough night.

We live in the neighborhood and are always looking for good places to go. On the night we went, the waitress as well as the chef did not have a good handle on the meaning of Gluten-free. I had the waitress ask the chef several times on an item and finally the waitress came out and said we were right, it has gluten in it! -fine neighborhood place if you do not have dietary restrictions, but don't ask for guidance or substitutions!

Have always loved Murphy's but hadn't gone for several years until last week. It is still just as delicious as before. The brisket was excellent and the calamari fresh. The corking fee is also only $15 so I would recommend bringing a bottle if you want to save money. Overall an excellent experience.

The food was so fresh! I always look for fresh options in restaurants...more than just salads. Loved the little touches of fresh ingredients in the soup (like the avocado) and sandwiches (veggies) and the fried onion on the Caesar salad was a sweet treat.

I've always loved Murphy's. This visit was a little disappointing due to the unusually long wait for food to arrive. However, the food was excellent once we received it. I'm guessing they were just short staffed due to it being the day after Christmas. We'll definitely be back.

Murphy's is a gift to the Virginia Highlands neighborhood and anyone else who ventures there for lunch or dinner. There's something for everyone on the menu and the food is consistently good. We had a great time, excellent service and satisfied a sweet tooth to finish off the night.

Love Murphy's! The food is consistently great (pork chops and brisket were fantastic this time, but my usual go-to selections are either the chicken or the trout).

Safe bet : always fresh food, wonderful service, and an overall great experience.
