“Terrific atmosphere in a country setting. Plentiful portions, laid back and kid friendly.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We have been enjoying Murphy's for many years. The food is good, plentiful and the atmosphere hadn't changed even though ownership has. Cold beer and wine served in frozen glasses. More food than you eat with home made desserts. Loved the peach cobbler and pecan pie. The location is rural America at its best. Not far from Smithville, Bastrop and LaGrange.

“GREAT PLACE - HUGE PORTIONS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We eat at Murphy's about every other month. It's always GREAT. Last week, we had Hamburger Steak, baked potato, which we shared and brought some home. (this is ONE order). Their salad bar is excellent and always so fresh. Pinto beans come with the salad bar....also very tasty.

All in all, it's one of our favorite places...it's a unique place in the small town of Winchester, TX.

“Murphy's Steakhouse Winchester, Tx”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

Service was good, food was excellent. Steaks were huge and cooked to perfection. One steak would feed 2 people. Meatloaf was good, chicken fried steak and catfish were also good. They had a better than normal salad bar and a nice selection of desserts (we didn't try because we were stuffed!)

“A Nice Thick Juicy Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

A group of 50 met at Murphys so there was a mixed set of orders placed. My Choice was the 10 oz Ribeye - baked potato - salad bar -. I was extremely pleased with my meal and for sure the value. The TOP MEAL was the 120z. Sirloin Strip is was so Thick and a real value for the Money as few could not finish the steak and took it home. The meat is all hand cut in the back so really hungry people could order DOUBLE CUTS. and is usda prime beef.

I would for sure stick with those two choices of beef as I did not see anybody purchasing the Filet which is a question in my mind.

Murphys is in Winchester,Texas and its a hidden gem just outside Smithville,Texas. Call and Check for Times and yes they do take reservations. Trust me get there as soon as they open because they were packed when we all left. The place is Clean and Huge on the inside but not showing this on the street view. Oh and just walking distance they have a Sweet Shop with Ice Cream anyway you want it and plenty of Candies.

Its for sure a stop worth doing.

Thanks Murphy's and Winchester, Texas
