Great pizza

Interesting place - we ate there on one of the busiest weekends of the year: autumn leaves, craft fairs and football game. The pizza is excellent and beer selection good. The salad was okay. Due to decreased staffing our service was slow but our son assured us that it was unusual

Asked a local and they recommended Murphy's. We had wings bone in and boneless. They were very good. The service was good.

As with many Boone establishments, they don't care about service. Real talk. I'm an ASU alumni and it's simply terrible. Waitress didn't even greet us when we sat down. When we said "hello" she said "what drinks do you want". Had to ask for flatware and refills. Bad bad bad

Murphy's was recommended to us by several local folks for a good burger. They were right. We had excellent burgers - flavor, cooked to specification, juicy. Not a fancy place, but a great burger.

College town restaurant. Inside feels worn but the place is clean, Pizza is great and so are the burgers. Decent beer selection. Bar is dark but I haven't spent any time there in my multiple trips to Murphy's. Staff is very nice

Have eaten at Murphy's MANY times over the years. Have always received GREAT SERVICE and delicious food! It is a great place to go watch the end of an Appalachian game - if you just can't make it to the end - LOTS of TVs :-)

My wife thought we should stop in on one of our shopping journeys. I was a little wary as it seemed like it might be a college bar. As soon as we went in, you could see it was kinda grungy. It was pretty beat up and looked a bit rough. We sat down and it really reminded me of... More

A decent place to grab a beer, watch a game and chat with the cute kiwi bartender. The fries were great, but we were more after a cold beer on a hot day.

The pizza is fantastic! The Monterey Pie with smoked Gouda was just perfect! Our waitress was super nice and the service was quick. I'd definitely go back for the food. We got two different pizzas and both were delicious.

I think the review before mine says it best: it's a bar, so don't be shocked by the inside. ;) When the weather is nice, I love dining on Murphy's covered porch off the back of the restaurant. The menu is huge, with options ranging from pizza and wings to sandwiches, steaks, pasta, quesadillas, and more. My favorite appetizer to... More
