Lunch with friends

Been there many times over the years. Food is always good and the atmosphere is great for a "quiet" lunch with friends.

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.

In spite of the cartoon-like sign for this restaurant, it is actually quite a sophisticate restaurant for a small town. There are several smaller rooms for seating, which gives it a nice intimate feel. The service has always been excellent, the menu has interesting selections, and the food is tasty. They also have a good selection of beers from smaller... More

I always wondered about this place in Fergus Falls. Now I no longer need to wonder. Mabel's is a fine place to drink and dine. What really attracted me to this place is the character of the building. It has sort of an English or Irish pub feel with various rooms for dining and a large bar area. Food includes... More

I ordered a Cheeseburger, it wasn't as good as I hoped. I think the burger was a frozen patty but I am not sure. I would eat there again if I was in Fergus Falls but I don't think I would make a special trip. Maybe their Dinner Meals are better, they have been around a long time so they... More

We called days ahead to Mabel Murphys to let them know we would be showing up with a large hockey group and had limited window of time! Unlike a disastrous experience at applebees (half our party never got food after 2 hours of waiting) -Mabel murphys rocked it out for us!! The portion of our party that ordered first had... More
