I came here once a while back. I think I ordered some kind of salad with goat cheese. I remember it being very good, and an odd combination of sweet and salty - a very delicious combination. The evening was late, and there weren't that many late dinner customers, except for a few preppy college kids on the outside deck.... More

My sons chicken and fries was good. The cheesestick app also. My wife's crab cake. was excellent as was my fish and chips. My beers were fresh and my wife's mixed drink were tasty. The live Irish music rocked as well. Wish I could stay longer.

This is what I expected. It was a great little Irish place with a great feel. Staff and friendly and great. Food was what you would expect from an Irish pub. The drinks were a little overpriced in my opinion. I would go back.

Murphy's is one of our family's favorite. Our children, now 17 &14, asked to go back during our last trip to Washington DC. This is a fun place in Old Town with an extremely friendly staff and fun music. We always have a great time here and the kids love it! The Irish singer is interactive with the crowd and... More

Had a nice time here listening to some authentic Irish music while on vacation. Didn't eat a meal here though. People were having a good time. Friendly atmosphere. If you're looking for a traditional pub experience, this is one to check out.

Food was ok but the prices were reasonable. And the atmosphere was great. Very Irish! Enjoyed it despite a tough pork chop (which we didn't bother to mention to our waitress. So, in fairness we didn't give them a chance to fix it when we didn't tell that it was broken. Ya know?) I'd come back in a heartbeat.
