I'm far from home and found a very friendly little spot here in Fergus Falls. Great food, friendly service and quite cozy and we had a few deer stroll up to the grain troughs out side our window. This is what a small town is all about.

Mabel Murphy's has been around for a while. I've never been disappointed with a meal that I've had there. On the last couple of visits I've noticed that it's starting to look shabby. Things I noticed were: an exposed electrical wire about the bar sign, bathrooms that needed cleaning, weeds growing like crazy among the shrubs (some half dead), areas... More

Not a bad little place for drinks and food in such a small town. Sat out on the patio or back deck surrounded by trees and nature and enjoyed the evening. They had a good selection on the menu and the service was great.

This is a decent place to eat. Kind of an odd atmosphere but not in a bad way. Food was decent and prices not bad, and atmosphere at lunch times are always hard to judge a place by. The bar area is very relaxed and has a nice old feel to it, and it appears there are some other bar... More

Atmosphere interesting......food bland, salad bar (bagged iceberg lettuce). With only a few cut up tomatoes & cucumbers for the first 4 people at the bowl! Steak...very bland, no taste. salmon seemed fishy (probly frozen). Pasta...soggy, bland. Dinner rolls...dry with fake whipped margarine. Price...too much for the poor quality of food. Best thing......was the staff. Friendly & waitress very nice. Couldn't... More

The restaurant is situated in the woods off I94 in Fergus Falls but is visible from the road. The back part of the restaurant over looks the woods with a patio deck built onto that side. There seemed to be a few different parts to the restaurant: the main dining area which seemed more formal, the bar side which had... More

I went for lunch and waited 15 minutes for a table when I could see open tables. Once I was able to order, it took... More
