Acidic designer beers (lemon flavored beer? come on!) that are over priced and undrinkable. If there is a resurgence of the "Yuppie Bar" this one would top the list. Make sure you count your change if you're paying cash.

David-Interesting Review. The lemon 'acidic' beer is referred to as Summer Shandy and produced by Leinenkugel's....pretty much the most popular beer in the summer. We do offer 16oz PBRs in a can for $2, but if that is a little to steep our water is free. If your idea of "Yuppie Bar" is a fun atmosphere that excels in craft... More

This the best pub in the hills. Food is imaginative high-quality gourmets pub grub. Service is impeccable. Others have commented that Murphy's is expensive. Not true. You will just as much elsewhere at the tourist traps for poorly prepared food of bad quality served by surly staff. Fret yourself right and try Murphy's.

Thank you for the review my North Dakota friend. Andrew is an excellent team member and we are lucky to have the guy. Next time you are in town Andrew can give some excellent food recommendations along with some great local fishing knowledge. More

We arrived late on a Sunday evening. They were closing soon. Our server was candid about the fact that one of the cooks had left early (when it was slow), he said our food might take longer than usual. The service was impressive. My wife ordered a glass of wine and our server told her it wasn't great and offered... More

The French fries were cold when they arrived and the grilled chicken wings were still red inside. Our server samee d did bring new fries but they were greasy. When we mentioned the wings she said "they should have been done they are precooked" then walked away. The men that were working did try to cover some of her tables.... More

Always love coming here. Top notch service and atmosphere. Drinks are well made and the wings are to die for. Wouldn't hurt to shake up the menu, though. Always love to see buffalo as an option, even if it's only as a burger.

Had the pleasure of going to the SpeakEasy in the basement of Murphy's Pub and Grill on Friday Night with a few friends. Service was unbelievably awesome!!
