If you like great wine and food then you don't want to miss Murphy's. Known as the anchor of the neighborhood before VaHigh was VaHigh it's a classic spot for meal with friends, significant other and family. The desserts are tasty and they have an amazing brunch on the weekends.

Beautiful fine dining with interesting food and a lovely presentation. I can't stop thinking about the gazpacho and the whole meal was great.

We dine here several times a year. Always consistent quality and service. Brunch is great, but plan on waiting for a table. Best brunch around.That's is why they have been here for 25+ years.

We had a party of 7 dine here for a family member's birthday. I had originally wanted to come here for brunch, but dinner turned out to be an excellent choice as well. The menu leaned a little more towards fish and seafood options when we were here, but the members of our party who ordered the brisket or spinach... More

My nephew took my wife and I to Murphy's for lunch and we had a great time. The location is just outside of downtown Atlanta and was rather busy as we were there at lunchtime.

This place is a very social place and one of those places to go just to say that you went there for brunch with your friends after church or before you get consumed with your day of doing other stuff. This place is a very popular one. There is usually a wait, but at least there is a pretty good... More

Everything about this place is great! Service was excellent and friendly and food and drink were outstanding. I started with a blueberry julep that was delicious. I ordered the trout -- perfectly cooked over mashed potatoes. My partner ordered the gnocchi- creamy and delicious with delectable sauce.
