Murphys best bets

Family reunion dinner out on the lawn. The food was good, they staff very able to accommodate a group of 60+. They provided us with an microphone for some family awards.

We read the reviews and thought we would try this place - especially since they would allow dogs on their patio. My beet salad was dry and beets were chewy - and too forever to come out. My daughter got pasta which was ordinary and overpriced for a kids meal at $8. When my salmon cakes came out, there was... More

My wife and I had dinner at Murphys Grille on a Saturday evening. We weer given a nice table outside. As a starter we both chose the soup of the day, which was a delicious tomato basilicum gazpacho. As a main, my wife had the grilled salmon on a gourmet salad. The salmon was well grilled and the salad very... More

My husband and I visited for a light lunch on a busy Sunday. We were seated right away on the patio, there is inside dining as well. It was a warm day, but the patio is covered and has ceiling fans, so we were very comfortable outside. We decided to split the daily special sandwich; club sandwich with cranberry sauce,... More

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 reservations.

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
