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

We've been going here for about 16 years now. Murph's was originally a biker-type of bar that underwent a transformation about 10 years ago by opening and improving its outdoor deck (it was just a smokers' area). Now the pub area is greatly improved with a good selection of beer and non-traditional pub grub. The traditional dining area finally has... More

Really good pizza crust-tasted a bit smoky like from a real brick oven. Ate at the restaurant side, and the waitress was knowledgeable about beers, specifically local beer. Veggie pizza toppings were plentiful, and great!

From the outside and inside Murphy's looks like an old pub, it was a nice day so we sat outside . We were surprised from their menu Snd variety of food. We try wings where ever we go and we were not disappointed . We had their blueberry chipotle , which were spicy with a little sweetness to balance them... More

Place is not fancy, but offers a great venue to meet and play acoustic music. Although I have not been to every pizza place in the Boone, Blowing Rock and Banner Elk area, I have been to many, and have yet to find better pizza than at Murphy's!

Obviously Boone does not offer a ton of good options for pizza, but after hearing a ton of great reviews for the pizza here I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Fairly thick crust with a flavorful sauce and not too much cheese..didn't try any other pies but the flavor and price are... More

Let me explain the title of my review. Quite simply, I like Irish bars in Ireland. I like Scottish pubs in Scotland. And I like American bars in the USA. So thank heavens, despite the Irish name, Murphy's is a good old American sports bar. I would guess that it is the main bar in town and the atmosphere, even... More
