This was one of my favorite haunts in Manchester when I lived there. It stays open late, has reasonable drinks and is always packed. There is always something going on and the outdoor area is huge. I was never in love with the food, but still totally worth going to.

I had been here when it was under a different name and ownership. Building was about the same but I was impressed and pleased with the changes to the menu and certainly with the large selection of craft beers. Quite happy with my meal and the service. Thumbs up! Definitely recommend.

If it wasn't for location and the outdoor space this bar would have died a longtime ago. Foods awful, service is awful, and no drink specials rounds up this so called bat.. But in all honesty durning the summer months it's a bar where you can meet and mingle and it's all the about the people!

We had breakfast here and really enjoyed it. They had good variety on the menu, and it was very good. Although this is also a bar, it was very much a restaurant during the day.

Stopped there on our way to Vermont. Looks good outside and is neat, clean and our waitress was very good. Unfortunately, my jalapeño burger only had shavings of onion on it, but the fries were good. My wife's "cold chicken salad" was served on a warm plate! We will not return. It's too bad, because it looks really good.

Been frequenting Murphy's Taproom as of late and am coming to the conclusion it's one of the best restaurants in Manchester. Great American Grille food plus a diverse menu to keep things fresh. Friendly staff, comforting atmosphere, huge outdoor deck and the largest tap selection in NH. Combine that with entertainment whether it be comedy, trivia or musicians and the... More

Large mix of patrons. The service is sub par. It's a nice place to sit outside but you must be prepared to deal with some of Manchesters finest lowlifes. The nachos are great.

I've been here for lunch at least 10 times. They have 100+ craft beers on tap and an amazing price of $2 for about 40 of them on Tues/Friday. And all the 40 are really good beers. Check out their beer menu online. The food is really good as well. I personally like the buffalo chicken wrap but the jalapeno... More
