A nice find

Decided to jump off the highway to find a bite for lunch. Found this quaint restaurant. It's big; looked like 3 dining areas? But each dining room was small and cozy. Had a table in front of the fireplace. Decided mom the salad bar which turned out to be soup, salad and sandwich bar. Salad bar... read more

They had a decent beer selection and the food is out of this world. Definitely the best in Fergus for higher scale eating w/ out the snooty attitude. Its very warm and welcoming on the inside and the service is top notch. We had a great time catching up w/ each other and watching the bridal party sing (well, attempt... More

Overall experience was very positive. The interior and exterior are modeled after an Irish or English pub. A lunch date with my bride and my niece, we visited Mable Murphy's on my niece's recommendation. Very pleasantly surprised. First impression was the place is very clean. Tables, rooms, even the restroom. For lunch, both my bride and I enjoyed the salad... More

My family has eaten here many times over the years for special occasions, because the private dining room is quiet enough that our hard-of-hearing elders can feel a part of the conversation. The service is always prompt and friendly and the food is tasty. The menu is nicely varied, if rather conservative, and the ambiance is pleasant. We always have... More

I haven't been there for dinner but go regularly for their soup and sandwich bar, available over the lunch hour. Great selection of meats, cheeses, salads etc. at a reasonable price.

The sign outside is fun and artsy and easy to spot, but the front door is almost hidden. Once in the building its either the bar or the dinning room. We headed to the dinning room which does indeed feel like an old Irish pub. The atmosphere was great. Our waitress was brand new but very friendly and learning her... More

I went to Mabel Murphy's with my two daughters (ages 8 and 10). The children's menu was fine but predictably boring. My daughters ordered teriyaki chicken and lobster and loved it. Our server was very nice and brought my younger daughter extra pineapple for her chicken (she even had it grilled!). The beer cheese soup was excellent.
