The location is tucked into a curve in the road just outside the downtown area. THe interior is nice in a plainer sense of the word. The food is very good and the service matches. The Bison Burger and the Fried Chicken Fingers were very good.

Matt was the Most excellent server....The Kale soup was amazing. The flavor was very diverse, with a multitude of textures. I was a little apprehensive about trying the soup but was very happy that I went with the daily suggestion.

My wife and I came to Murphy to visit friends and stayed at the casino. We stayed for 10 days, and by our 3rd day we were struggling to find decent food, casino has no restaurant, the staff recommended this chop house, so we came right away. We came for lunch, and wow! Very very happy and so was my... More

We were encouraged to try Murphy's Chophouse and we were happy we did. We both got the prime rib. I ordered the small portion, husband chose the next larger. We were pleased with overall service, presentation and quality of food.

This was place was awesome. I ordered the fish and chips and was disappointed when it arrives that there was only one piece of fish but oh my gosh I couldn't even finish it! The truffle fries were phenomenal....on top of everything the waitress was a peach! I look forward to going back!

Murphy's Chophouse is nice restaurant where the food is well-prepared and presented. Service was prompt and well-handled. Atmosphere was pleasant and the food was better-than-average. My wife's salmon was slightly over-cooked but not bad and my grouper was excellent.

The dinner choices here are varied and I could have chosen several items. We were a party of 7 and everyone agreed their dinners were delicious. The salads were very fresh. The She-Crab soup was excellent. A few had the surf and turf dinner and were pleased. The salmon with grilled peaches was excellent. The fried chicken also was excellent.... More

The prime rib was outstanding! When I walked into this place it looked expensive. I thought......here we go again, another expensive place with mediocre food and high fluten people. I was totally wrong! The people were friendly, even knowing I was from out of state, the food was great, and the price was medium high, but well worth it. We... More

Our server, Sandra was fantastic and friendly. The food was just ok. We had the fried chicken tenders, which were good. The Gouda mac & cheese was the best thing we had by far. The veal meatloaf was overly salty, and frozen vegetables are never a good idea at a higher end restaurant. The mixed drink tasted too much like... More
