Stop in, cool off.

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

We were in the mood for pizza and really wanted a good local place. A local told us about Murphy's and we decided to check it out. It's a bar, so don't be shocked by the inside. However we sat outside on the patio and ordered two pizzas, meat supreme and the Monterey. Both were excellent! Service was a little... More

Some locals recommended this restaurant so we tried it. Since it was wing night, we tried several flavors. Those were all great! Service was good. However, all the rest of our plates were very disappointing. And it wasn't like we had cheap meals either. Also, the restaurant reeked and was old and dilapidated. We will not be back.

We had the pizza cooked to perfection, and we were very pleased at how great it was, lots of ingredients, good cold beer, and lot's of different flavored wings.

Probably the worst service I've had in a long time and the food wasn't worth the wait. Servers too busy checking their phones and the whole place lacked any sense of order. Much better places in either direction in town.

Restaurant was recommended by the hotel staff. I thought it was an Irish pub. Wrong. It is noted for its pizza. This was some of the best pizza I have had in the U.S. The secret is the crust. It was excellent. It is difficult to describe why but it is different and very tasty. I ate every bit of... More

After several miles of hiking we thought it was time to catch a beer in a local bar in the lovely college town of Boone. Most establishments are pet friendly. And Murphy's is definitely advertised as pet friendly. However after we got our drafts and sat down, we were approached and asked whether our dog was a service dog. Hardly!... More
