Enjoyable Eatery

This is a great place to take friends for any occasion. The only downside is lack of parking. They do have valet service at night, but not for lunch. Now for the good part! The lunch menu is excellent and so is the service. I have eaten here several times and am always pleased with my selection. It... read more

we were visiting Atlanta and a friend took us there. Only issue is lack of parking in the area. The meals were excellent and the service great. I had soup and a small plate of calamari. Both were perfect. My wife had the lobster salad and it was great also. What a special find. I highly recommend it

I'm not from the area, but went with my family. The food was great, I had the steak but tried off of everyone's plates. The Guinness Braised Brisket was amazing, I wish I had that instead. The Truffle Mac&Cheese wasn't as creamy as I had hoped but was still good. We tried two different desserts, The Bonzo was yummy and... More

we had brunch there last August on our last visit to atlanta and enjoyed so much that we were looking forward to brunch today. Very disappointing, starting with the reduced brunch menu. Previous menu was extensive and included selections from the lunch menu and brunch selections as well. Today it was a very limited menu, including no starters such as... More

Although I've eaten at a lot of the restaurants in the highlands for some reason I've overlooked Murphy's and I'm sorry I hadn't eaten there sooner. They have a varied menu, as someone else commented, "something for everyone." The service was impeccable, the food was very good. We were a party of five with everyone ordering something different and no... More

A trip advisor pick that was well worth it. Service was friendly, food was excellent and it was a fairly quiet atmosphere. I decided to be daring and order the meatloaf with spinach. A great choice. They also have a great dessert menu. The orange creme brûlée was different and delicious.

The portobello frittatas that three of us ordered were dry and tasteless. It was basically an overcooked omelet with a few mushrooms and oven dried tomatoes and a small dot of goat cheese dumped on top and way too much overwhelming pesto. Service was basic. Maybe it was an off day, but we certainly were. Not the least bit impressed

Great spot in town to eat with friends or date night. In the summer they have all the windows open and it's nice to sit and take your time. Amazing brisket and horseradish mashed potatoes.

Had a great dinner early Saturday at murphy's. Every element was on target. Kale salad in pinion nuts perfect, flank steak on par with home made. Excellent wine selection (bottle of Patz Chardonnay). Had dessert nearby where we had gelato down the block. Service was good (B+) and meal solid A! We will be back!! Ps - calamari was outstanding... More
