Great neighborhood bar with the best breaded wings you'll ever find. Big wings and hand-breaded. A Johnstown tradition. We have moved out of the area, but when we return, Murphy's is on the list of places to go to. Many people return home and take wings back with them because you can't find anything like them. We live in Virginia... More

The bar restaurant is nothing to look at, but the wings are amazing. The best of the best. Cheeseburgers are tasty as well.

Famous for their chicken wings, I much prefer the hamburgers. The enormous wings are breaded and fried to a deep dark brown. They are famous throughout the area and people order them 10-12 at a time (you can order just one, if you like.) The hamburgers are grilled on the flattop and served (with your choice of condiments) on a... More

It's near impossible to have a conversation with anyone in Johnstown without them praising Murphy's wings. But when a friend asked me to join him there, I just wasn't in a wing mood. (thank God) Instead, I was awarded with one of the finest burgers I've ever eaten' As I was eating it, I asked myself what I would change... More
