One of the few places on Cuba Street with an outdoor seating area. I had the Monday special lamb shank on mashed potatoes with carrots, green beans, gravy. The special included a 'handle' (pint) of draught for a total of $19. This was a good value - lots of meat, great quality pub food. Murphy's salad had lots of chewy greens and a whitish cheese that resembled feta but was not salty. The salad was very good but had a little too much dressing for my liking -$15.
But do they really want customers here? We sat, menu in hand, for 10-15 minutes while the waiter cleaned off tables and studiously ignored us. Finally after approaching him directly, he said we had to order inside at the bar. Why didn't he just tell us that instead of hoping we would figure it out eventually? This ended up a quite good choice in terms of food and (eventually) service; but it did make me wonder.
