Though famous for their ghosts, Murphys Hotel is my husband and my favorite breakfast haunt at least once a week! The "Murphys Breakfast" comes with the works for only $6.00; 2 eggs, home fries or hash browns, choice of sausage or bacon, toast, and weather permitting-outdoor dining! Weekends you can find locals and tourists shoulder to shoulder in the rustic... More

Although they have indoor seating, we chose the outdoor garden-type area. Seating was immediate for lunch been though they were busy. Food choices were good, with large portions. Unless you're starved, order half portion salads. The Cesaer salad was crisp and tasty. Hubby's fish and chips were very good and not greasy. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. Would go again.

I can't give a "5" because we only had drinks, no meal. The first night we only had one drink. When we returned the next night, Billy (?) remembered us and offered up the same drink. Service was excellent, friendly, and reasonably priced. Definitely a fun place to have cocktails.

The bar offers a good menu and drink selection, there's cool outdoor dining in good weather out back with a nifty bar, and the restaurant has many great entrees, including the best fried chicken I've tasted outside New Orleans. Great breakfasts in the dining room, too.

This pertains to the bar, but the restaurant was empty on a Saturday night. I have been drinking and dining here every couple of years from 1983 to about 2005. This was my first bad experience. I ordered a gin and tonic that was bad. The gin wasn't good, the tonic flat, and the lime couldn't mask a dirt-like flavor.... More

The Murphy's Hotel is still the hub of action in this charming town. A booming bar straight out of the Gold Rush, a dining room serving excellent food, and a hotel. They have an outdoor eating area as well. You can't miss it when strolling the streets.

Above average food and service; reasonable ambiance. My wife brought me here for my [deleted]th birthday dinner. Without reservations, we were seated right away (a choice of tables even) in the back room on a Monday evening. Only occasionally did the raucous laughter from the bar drift into the room. The menu and wine list were sufficiently varied with a... More

After an afternoon of wine tasting in Murphy's with wife, daughter and daughter's visiting friend from Virginia, we were all ready for a place to sit and have a leisurely dinner. Had eaten lunch at the grille a couple times before, but this was first time for dinner. Sat outside so we could people watch. Daughter and friend ordered the... More

Stopped in for lunch one day and shared a Turkey Club sandwich. It was huge and was served with a side salad, dressing of choice. We shared the sandwich, and the salad had a couple of glasses of wine and were very satisfied. They do have outside dining but by the time we entered the restaurant the outside tables were... More
