If you come to Murphys don't miss this old hotel which has a very old pub in it, and outside dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Staff are fast and very sweet. Walk around inside to see the history, have a local beer, and then eat under the trees in the garden. TIP: avoid weekends its packed. Try weekends instead... More

We sat outside in the back. The tables were well shaded and they have a very nice atmosphere. The food was very good and plenty of it for breakfast. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. We enjoyed our breakfast. It is not dog friendly.

We liked the food and the venue outside and overlooked both the poor service we had received a few years back as well as the reviews warning us about it since. Our server was working her first day on a very uncrowded midweek day. She had apparently been given a few minutes training and left to cope. The supervisor/manager had... More

I didn't expect fine cuisine in the tiny town of Murphys, but the Murphys Hotel Restaurant comes close to earning that title. The menu offers a nice variety, and each of the 8 people in our party enjoyed their entree selections. The service was friendly and attentive, without being overbearing or neglectful. The large dining room has a pleasant and... More

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
