Lovely outdoor seating

Visited midweek, so service was fine as we were practically the only diners there. Meal was nice, but I can't rave about it. Some good choices - pasta, meat, seafood. The regular fare. House red was from a local winery. Weekends must be crazy there since it's right on Main st. Make... read more

As good as any food in San Francisco. The name will throw you off they are not a hamburger joint. Just a shot drive from The Affirmation Cottage we stayed in. http://www.vrbo.com/700052

Although the food was not bad, it wasn't special either. For the pirce they charge, I expected higher standards. My Salmon was small and lacking in taste . Anytime you need to reach for the salt and pepper, the chef failed. There are so many choices in town that are much better. The service was very good and the outdoor... More

Sit outside here if you can and against the wall overlooking the sidewalk! They have fun murals on the outside of legs of people. I often stop and ask the diners if they have seen where they are sitting and usually take their photo. The food and service are excellent here.

Truly, there aren't too many bad choices in Murphys for food. Murphys Grille upholds that standard very well. The menu has something for everyone, but is kept elegantly simple. That's not to say the food is simple nor cheap. Wine prices here are significantly cheaper for the same wine sold at a nearby famous hotel and the food is just... More

Had a very nice evening with our friends and the help was very attentive. Liked the menu very much. My wife and I decided on the baby back ribs and our friends had the salmon. It did take awhile to be served and the baby back ribs were too charred and dry. When the server took the plate away I... More

We sat out on the patio and I ordered the house salad and my main course was the Mediterraen Pasta w/ Linguisa which was very good. We ate here a few years ago and they used to bring french bread to your table with olive oil to dip in. They now bring very oily pita chips with hummus and the... More

Third time I have dined here as I have friends in the area. I live in the Bay Area and come to Murphys often to visit my friends. Always enjoy the Grill and varied menu. Nothing pretentious - just good food. The patio seating is awesome and has a great feel - if you like to people watch - good... More
