I was craving a hamburger so decided to eat here because its really nice to sit outside under the trees and I thought Id give them a second chance because my breakfast I had here last year was not so good. Well again they "FAILED". My hamburger tasted like a frozen thin meat pattie and the bun also had no... More

Had a nice lunch here on the patio. While Murphys is fast becoming a tourist destination the town still has a nice pleasant atmosphere. Make sure to order the fries - they are awesome!!

Resturant has inside and patio seating. We've eaten outside twice. It is a very pleasant atomosphere, but the service has been slow both times. Food is good, but a bit on the pricey side (Murphys is a tourist town afterall). If you aren't in a hurry, a great choice.

While on a road trip with friends, we stopped at Murphy's Hotel for lunch. We were able to sit in their outdoor patio where they provide shade canopies and you can enjoy the surrounding flora and fauna. We enjoyed delicious fried pickles with beer (they have 22 draft beer choices and other bottled) while waiting for our lunch. Two of... More

Breakfast in the Bar or outside has always been our favorite meal. We have had Dinner here at least 5 times, hoping for something more than outside seating atmosphere. We are done, it is a combination of service issues and overpriced food. We were waited on by the Mgr/Owner? Not busy, Late Night, (Mothers Day 2015)Totally sauced!! Took forever! Came... More

Quaint historic hotel with really cute grounds. There is of course the hotel that you can stay in, they have an old dining room and one really great bar. In summer you can eat outside on the patio or enjoy a cocktail. The bartenders and wait staff are really friendly. The bar stays open late even though the town closes... More

Old fashioned bar, great food, and historical setting. I enjoy the family type seating. My husband usually has a steak and I have what is the "special of the day". Never left hungry nor dissatisfied. Just thinking how many well-known people from the "old days" have eaten there makes me feel like a real American history buff.

We went for breakfast. Can't beat the price for the Murphy's Special. The blueberry pancake was tasty too. We had bloody Marys in the bar which were excellent. Darling old hotel and bar. We would like to go back for dinner sometime.

We didn't eat here as food service was closed at the time. Just had drinks in the bar. Historical aspect the best.
