Great service, good Irish and non-Irish food, very reasonably priced. Definitely a pub, with TV in a cool dark interior.

We happened upon Murphy' s on a Wednesday when they offer 40 cent wings(10minimim). They offered three different options the night we were there. We enjoyed all three. Beer was good too. Service was good especially as crowded as it was.

We ended up here while visiting Washington D.C. on the recommendation of the front desk staff at our hotel. Needless to say we weren't disappointed. Even for a Sunday night dinner there was awesome live music (playing traditional Irish music) and the service/food were great! We had the shepherd's pie, fish & chips, crab-cake sandwich, and meatloaf. Everything was full... More

We arrived near the end of the England World Cup match and the place was packed, yet they were able to seat us within 10 minutes. The food was your typical Irish pub fare. I had the corned beef and my wife had the fish and chips. The highlight of the meal was my son's kids mac and cheese though.... More

Stopped in for a couple of drinks and stayed for hours. Thank goodness for the free trolley! The Guinness is perfect as well as the atmosphere and company. If you like anything about an Irish pub you'll want to be stopping by.

We went in Murphy's for an afternoon drink during Happy Hour. Cute pub with very good service. Didn't try any food but the menu looked good.

Four of us stopped in after strolling on King Street, and immediately liked the atmosphere. Fun Irish Pub, although tables are rather close. My companion and I had great lunches....he had the Murphy Burger, I had the pulled pork. But the other couple we were with were disappointed. The clam chowder was just "okay," and the salads were wilted. The... More

Took the tube from Arlington, Va just to go to Murphy's Irish Pub. Took one look at the menu and ordered bangers and mash. The potatoes were really really good. I'd recommend Murphy's especially if you're in the area.
