Great steak, happy with the medium rare. Mussels were also amazing.
Environment is lots of brick walls, ambiance like you're in a sun lounge. Big space but with the separating walls felt intimate enough.

Dinner was delicious as always. We’ve been long fans of this restaurant since before they moved to this spot. I believe (if memory serve me right, it was down the road near the fire house).

Service was good but a bit confusing - we had one server announce she was going to take care of us and then another one said the same thing. But it ultimately worked out well just a lot awkward at first.

We will continue to enjoy this Atlanta institution as long as it’s there!!

The lobster roll was very good. The mountain trout was tasty but the other food item served under the trout was not, and too spicy for consumption. We will try Murphy's again and hope that the lobster roll is on the menu.

I had dinner with three couples on Saturday night. We were seated promptly. The noise level was one where everyone could talk comfortably with each other. The service was good. Overall, everyone was very happy with their meals and the cost was very fair for our meals. I would definitely eat at Murphy's again.

I took my son and my two daughters with their dates to this place for the first time. A total of 7 and the bill was $400. This was for his 17th birthday. We had the loudest and rudest people in America sitting right behind us and it almost ruined my entire meal. If my children had not been there I can assure you there would have been words if not more exchanged. We complained and asked to move to no avail. We never saw a manager the entire evening and I felt we should have been discounted for what we had to endure. I am going to be on the lookout for that crew in the future.......

As always, Murphy's is a safe bet for a good night out. While it's not the edgy, or super-trendy new place, it's still fresh and has staying power. Very satisfied.

The melas at Murphy’s is always a treat. You can never go wrong there. The mussels are my favorite appetizer. Save room for dessert because they have an AMAZING selection of cakes. You can see them on the way to your table.

The service was very good and we didn't want to complain but when we asked to change out the rice instead of just vegetables the rice was changed from white to wild (still rice). And my meat was supposed to be medium well and it was rare. I just didn't eat half of it. But our server was very sweet and nice and it wasn't anything we couldn't work around. I like Murphys - the tollhouse pie is fantastic just think the price point is a bit expensive.

I chose Murphy’s to meet up with my mentors. I have not seen them altogether in about 5 years. We had a pretty good experience, not everyone arrived at the same time because of Atl traffic so we were not able to be seated immediately. I’m not a huge fan of that policy though I understand it. Eventually, we were seated and the other members of our party arrived. Some of the ladies are older and are not accustomed to in town traffic. Our server was great and our food was pretty good. I had the chicken salad sandwich which was fine but given all of the other options...I should have chosen something else. Murphy’s does so many things well, I will definitely pick something more dynamic next time. Overall, our experience was enjoyable.

Our server was not very attentive, runners would bring food and drop on the table without regard to making space or ensuring the right person got their meal. There was a drunk person next to our table that was super obnoxious and nobody from the staff seemed to care to get the situation under control (ie kick the drunktard out?). Food was overpriced (scallops undercooked, mussels seemed to have been boiling for days, blah). Disappointed overall with the service and the quality of the food. Something has changed, this place used to be great.

I have been dinning at Murphy's for many many years. However, over the past 7 years I go less because nothing new is on the menu. I would like to see change in the menu. I don't go as much as I would when I remember they have the same old thing on the menu.
