Oldest Bar in the area

You have to stop by this old bar to enjoy the woodwork, drinks and good people. Prices are mid range, but the beer is cold.

We had a glass of beer in the sticky, tacky noisy bar and dinner in the chic retro dining hall. The shrimp salad was excellent as well as our white wine recommended by the waitress. Some of the best food we've eaten in an "authentic" vintage restaurant.

We walked the main street of Murphys, found this historical hotel and decided to try their restaurant for lunch. It was typical lunch fare, salads and sandwiches. Good, but not great.

haunted...by persons who have passed on and by the very lively locals. See the town and do some tasting then wind down with the town folk and hear them talk about the history of Murphy's

Though famous for their ghosts, Murphys Hotel is my husband and my favorite breakfast haunt at least once a week! The "Murphys Breakfast" comes with the works for only $6.00; 2 eggs, home fries or hash browns, choice of sausage or bacon, toast, and weather permitting-outdoor dining! Weekends you can find locals and tourists shoulder to shoulder in the rustic... More

Although they have indoor seating, we chose the outdoor garden-type area. Seating was immediate for lunch been though they were busy. Food choices were good, with large portions. Unless you're starved, order half portion salads. The Cesaer salad was crisp and tasty. Hubby's fish and chips were very good and not greasy. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Would go again.

I can't give a "5" because we only had drinks, no meal. The first night we only had one drink. When we returned the next night, Billy (?) remembered us and offered up the same drink. Service was excellent, friendly, and reasonably priced. Definitely a fun place to have cocktails.

The bar offers a good menu and drink selection, there's cool outdoor dining in good weather out back with a nifty bar, and the restaurant has many great entrees, including the best fried chicken I've tasted outside New Orleans. Great breakfasts in the dining room, too.

This pertains to the bar, but the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night. I have been drinking and dining here every couple of years from 1983 to about 2005. This was my first bad experience. I ordered a gin and tonic that was bad. The gin wasn't good, the tonic flat, and the lime couldn't mask a dirt-like flavor.... More

The Murphy's Hotel is still the hub of action in this charming town. A booming bar straight out of the Gold Rush, a dining room serving excellent food, and a hotel. They have an outdoor eating area as well. You can't miss it when strolling the streets.
