Great Comfort Food...

Went for dinner our last night in Hawaii. Saw it on TV saying the best Irish Pup in Honolulu. It was very good. The pot roast was so tender and amazing. Everyone love what they ordered. The Rib, Chicken, we loved everything...

My two favorite all time food is Burgers and they offer properly poured Guinness :) I'm really the happiest person with these two things and they're done impeccably well at Murphy's. Not to mention the option of eating Hawaii's best Corned beef and Cabbage. I also highly recommend their wings (honestly it's one of the best I EVER had), Bread... More

We only went to Murphy's for drinks. We did not try the food. The beers were fresh and service was excellent. I love the bar area. It is as close as you can get to an East Coast pub in Honolulu. They also have a shuffleboard which was fun.

Hands down the best corn beef and cabbage I have ever had! Thanks to Audrey our server who recommended it and was charming. Fantastic food! Hubby and I shared a delicious crisp house salad to start with which contained pea pods, peas, raw broccoli, lettuce, carrots, cucumbers and toms. Fresh, crispy and delicious! I had the corn beef and cabbage... More

Went on Friday and they were empty, and claimed to be out of several items on the menu.. Ya gotta be kidding me Friday lunch at 1:00 and only the wait staff were sitting eating, and it was out of Tupperware, obliviously from home.. Our first clue, but it did not sink in. I had the Shepherds pie, Lamb was... More

I was volunteering at the Sony Open and Don Murphy, owner of Murphy's Bar & Grill was giving away complimentary corn been and cabbage sliders. I'm not a big fan or corn been but I tried one and it was like butter melting in your mouth. It was almost a shame to chew it because I was sure it would... More

You feel like you are in Ireland when sitting at the bar. All the walls and ceiling are covered in memorabilia. The extensive list of beers on tap will delight the best of the best taste buds. All the classic dishes prepared on request, nothing frozen or microwaved. The Sheppards Pie was made with large tender chunks of Lamb and... More

There's probably a restaurant like Murphy's in every town in America. It's the local restaurant you go to for a great meal and to get good value for your money. The wait staff and the bartenders know their jobs very well and treat you right. That's a rarity these days. The owner Don Murphy is a pillar of the community.... More

Stopped in for a pint of Guinness. Ended up with the open faced turkey sandwich. My wife had an appetizer big enough for a meal. Friendly staff great service. Reasonable priced food for Hawaii, and Irish food no less, worth the stop for sure.
