We came here the morning after our wedding with family after having some trouble finding a breakfast place in town. Located close to many of Murphys hotels, the menu and food really amazed us. We tried some of their omelet dishes, all of which were delicious and had generous portions. I would definitely go back! I've never had such a... More

I would actually rate this Murphys restaurant between average and very good, as I only tried it once and I just have had a bad "special" experience. I ate outside and the patio was lovely. The staff were gracious, friendly and fast. The issue was the "special" that day which I ordered. I try to avoid those as sometimes it... More

Grounds has pleasant surroundings and a wait staff that is friendly and attentive. My favorite dish is the Greek sandwich. The french toast is really good as well.

We are locals and have eaten at this restaurant many times-breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast and dinner are outstanding. Lunch is very good. The calamari dore is my favorite. Service is excellent with good quality food. Prices are reasonable for the area. Steaks are $26-29 and a good sized portion.

The atmosphere is very enjoyable, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The regular diners are mostly locals...Food is good...however, if choosing fish make sure to ask that the kitchen grill lightly with sauce on the side...a lovely sword fish steak over cooked, so disappointing. Otherwise numerous delicious dishes which my friends thoroughly enjoyed...good choice for breakfast!

We actually ate here by accident. Thought we were eating at adjacent restaurant so once we got menus, just stayed put as we were feeling adventurous. The food was good, service good and we had a great table as we were traveling with dog. No one raved about there food but then no one had a bad meal either.

We've been here several times before and were always pleased. This time the fish was over cooked, veggies were undercooked, no one ever came by to see if we were satisfied, if we wanted another glass of wine or anything else except for bringing us the bill. Quick to collect the credit card as well. Weather was perfect however the... More
