Hi We were in Puerto Vallarta for 5 weeks last year and went Murphy's Pub a few times. So funny as there ended up being a Canadian singing from Newfoundland. Staff was so friendly. Totally recommend you stopping in for some foood and a couple beer. Roxy & Rick Ontario, Canada

Murphy's has Mexican beer on draft, which in my experience, is a rarity... More

Read the reviews for this place here on Trip Advisor, and decided to check it out. We're glad we did. Staff was great, and the owner came over to introduce himself and welcome us. Food was great too, and the view created a nice atmosphere. If you have a craving for a burger like we did, definitely check this spot... More

Perfect place to sit and enjoy a sunset after a long day on the strip. Great atmosphere and music with perfect view of the palm trees and ocean. Compared to other bars on the strip this place provided the best prices and service. The staff was very friendly and immediately turned on the sports game I was looking for that... More
