I don't come here often enough

Murphy's is a great restaurant and on the days when the doors can be opened it is a wonderful place to enjoy part of an afternoon as well. There are several great dishes on the menu and always wait to hear the daily specials.

Great local restaurant in Virginia Highlands area of Atlanta, which is a pretty cool small neighborhood area with a lot of great places to eat. Great service here, outstanding food, very good beer and wine choices - you can't go wrong! When all is said and done, it will probably be a higher than expected bill, but it's worth the... More

Brunch at Murphy's is just the best. They serve rolls and muffins at the table but, I judge breakfast and brunch restaurants by their scones. OMG, SO GOOD. Actually, one member of our party could not stop eating the apricot muffins, she said they were the best she had ever had. All our orders were raved over. Only one teeny... More

Sunday brunch at Murphy's was delicious. We got there early - 8:30 am, which by the way was awesome they opened that early. Brunch started with biscuits and muffins. French toast was really good, and the fritatta was enjoyed by my companions. We were close enough to walk which made it that much more special.

Murphy's, Atlanta, is where our family meets and it never disappoints. Today was a good example. There were five of us. We made reservations. at 11:30AM, to get better parking. We were served promptly. With wine, appetizers and food the bill was $136.00, with a $25.00 tip. Murphy's has an on site wine shop.

We have enjoyed Murphys for years but our meals last night were not up to par. The shrimps and grits were not good, the fish was not enjoyable. Other items ordered also were disappointong. The menu looks the same but the food was not worth the price. We probably will not return to Murphys.

We don't live in Atlanta but if we did we would eat here when ever we wanted a very well done meal. Last night was just as good as the last time we were in Atlanta. We started off in the bar, I had one of the best Margaritas I have ever had and my wife had a great California... More

I was in Atlanta for a business trip, and someone from Atlanta told me about this restaurant. The parking lot was small and crowded, and I understood why. The food and service were really good. All of the salads and entrees were delicious (ribs, steak, etc). We also had the dessert platter, which was nice enough for 3-4 people to... More

Atlanta based friends took me here for dinner. We had a delightful meal with attentive, but not oppressive, service and a wonderful atmosphere for conversation. They even modified the preparation of a dish to accommodate a food allergy. Everything was delicious, including the wine.
