Welcome to Murray's Restaurant. Minneapolis' original restaurant for steak since 1946 & home of the award winning Silver Butterknife Steak dinner for two. Also known for mouth watering garlic toast, Hickory Smoked shrimp appetizer, and home baked pies. Well into its third generation of family ownership, Murray's stands out among local and out of town diners alike as a true Twin Cities landmark & continues to provide the best in food and service as it did in 1946.

    It isn’t cheap but the food and steaks are outstanding. Amy, our server was wonderful. Her assistants were there when we needed water, a knife, or a plate or two cleared. They were pleasant and added to the experience. The whole evening was delightful. But it always is, and this consistency of great food, and service is the way Murray’s stands above the rest of the steakhouses in downtown Minneapolis.

    Great meal to celebrate a milestone birthday. Terrific steaks and a halibut special topped off with tasty dessert birthday cake and raspberry pie made for a wonderful dining experience.

    We were celebrating my 77th birthday, which was not acknowledged. The food was amazing. The service was amazing. The noise was beyond noisy. We were a 77 year-old an 84-year-old 76-year-old and a 22-year-old we had to yell to hear each other, we were moved to a different table, the staff accommodated us as best they could. I just wish we could’ve had a better time than we did. I had requested a table in a quiet area and there was no quiet area. I don’t know how this could’ve been better. It was the best it could be, but it was not a good birthday with friends for me.

    Great silver butter knife steak dinner. Garlic toast is out of this world! They brought us a dessert on the house to help us celebrate our anniversary. It’s a great venue for a celebration.

    This was everything we could have hoped for to help us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! Suburb food and service-it was memorable. Looking forward to a return.

    If you want to experience an old fashioned 50s steak house, this place is for you. I try to find this place in every city I visit. Before I tell you about the steak, we’ll start with the accompaniment dishes. Au gratin potatoes, browned in their own ramekin. Just cheesy enough and perfectly cooked. Next was a surprise vegetable dish. Creamed corn sounds so simple, not worthy of a mention. Well these were not your typical kernels. They were expertly combined with pablano peppers and the subtlety of that additional flavor made this corn stand out. I had the New York strip steak. I asked for it to be cooked rare. It’s been hard recently to find a chef that understands what rare actually means. Well I can tell you that the chef on the grill at Murray’s knows exactly what it means. It ranks in the top 5 steaks I have had in the last ten years or so. Thank you Amy for the great service. You made me laugh. I always appreciate that. When in Minneapolis, go to Murray’s. You won’t regret it

    A classic steak house that did not disappoint. We had the Chateaubriand for Two and it was prepared beautifully. The au jus was just a tad salty for us. Shrimp cocktail was an excellent opener and our wine selections very nice. The service was excellent and the ambience, sans piano, very relaxing.
