This is the busiest restaurant in town. I don't know why. It could be their wine pairing that draws such a crowd, but I don't drink. All three times I've been there, I figured I had just caught them Ina bad night. Selection is big, but the place was loud, the food nothing special and very expensive. We travel to... More

Visiting the area to do some family history research and for my spouse to visit with old school mates. After a beautiful day in the mountains, we were so glad to end with an equally beautiful dining experience. The Staff was friendly, service very good and the food top notch. We both had prime rib, cooked to our taste. We... More

Enjoyed a very good dinner with friends at the Chophouse. Service was good, could have been a bit more attentive, refilling drinks. Prime rib was excellent and the trout very good. Really liked the corn chowder. Dining room is clean and has great atmosphere, food was prepared just right, friendly staff. For fine dining in Murphy this is a good... More

Loved this local place in Murphy, went with the family during our mountain vacation. Just finished a long walk, needed lunch. Popped in here and had a great experience. Server was friendly and prompt, and everyone was pleased with their meal. Definitely would come back!

Lobster tail was shorter in length then a normal fork [can understand why they give you a small fork for the lobster]..Onion Blossum greasy. Very small cup of A-1 sauce [ after I asked for... More
