The Chophouse has excellent meals and good service; however, it's a noise place where it's hard to hear your diner partners. We live near Murphy and have dined there thrice ... noise was always an issue if seated inside.

My wife and I enjoy our weekend adventure trips. This weekend brought us Murphy, NC. We started with Portobello mushrooms that were prepared to perfection! My wife had the She Crab Soup and Appalachian BBQ Beef Spring Rolls. I had the Prime Rib French Dip and both entrées were simply amazing. This is a definite repeat!

When this restaurant opened, we were initially given the pitch that the owner/head chef cooked for The President (Clinton to be specific). Granted, he probably did, it still makes no sense to move from a presidential gastronomic cooking lifestyle to cooking for us mountain folk in a very small town situated in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains The grand...

Enjoyed lunch w/ great hamburger. She crab soup was not memorable nor would I reorder. Great service and friendly staff, I prefer this place to others in Murphy and plan to try dinner soon.

We were driving through Murphy and wanted to have lunch. Looked up options on TripAdvisor. We decided to eat here and were not disappointed. For an appetizer, my husband and I had the Mozzarella Lollipops which had a light flavorful batter. I had the French dip sandwich and he had the burger and we split them. Of the two we... More

We decided to try Murphy's Chophouse for dinner and were not disappointed. David, our server, was wonderful and made us feel at home. Service was perfect. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere was peaceful. The meals were just a bit pricey but we did leave pleasantly full.

Wow. Not what you would expect with a name like Chop House! From the seared Ahi tuna, to the She crab soup, something to entertain even the dullest of taste buds. Service was above and beyond. Just amazing.

We were visiting the area and several people recommended Chophouse. We were a large table of seven. Everyone was happy with their choice. Service was excellent and prices were reasonable. We would definitely come back if ever in the area.

I am in Murphy for business and had my doubts when I asked the front desk at my hotel for a recommendation. I have been to many "Chophouse" restaurants and found it hard to believe there could be one worth trying in such a remote location. I could not have been more wrong. The service was fast and friendly. The... More
