Alchemy fuses the best of flavor and flair

I LOVE Alchemy, it's my favorite restaurant across the "golden" wine country (Amador-El Dororado-Calaveras counties). Very interesting menu with super fresh, innovative ingredients - but plentiful, unlike many concept restaurants. Lots of wonderful Belgian beers that you don't see everywhere, and... read more

Really enjoyed the vast menu, we had six in our party, and everybody ordered something different, even Pad Thai. No complaints whatsoever. Winter so we dined inside but they do have a great little patio for summer dining, which I enjoyed last time I was there. Would recommend it.

My husband & I rolled into Murphy on Dec 30th and the caretakers of the Victoria Inn recommended the Alchemy Cafe. We were able to get the Sierra Sunset 3 course meal. I had the salmon and it was fabulous. It came with salad or soup and a decadent dessert. We loved the ambiance and price too.

The restaurant was full of empty tables at 6pm on a Wednesday and yet we were still turned away with no excuse by a male server. It was incredibly strange and quite rude.

We wanted to make dinner reservations on a Friday and learned they stop serving at 8:00. So our party of four had a big fat lunch at 4:00. Server was great, personable, and knowledgable with a good sense of humor. Food portions were huge and we all asked for take away boxes. Lunch for four plus drinks and tip was... More

Have been here half a dozen times and there is nothing to spectacular. The service seems grudgingly friendly and the food is...meh. The highlight is the bread they give but other than that nothing has ever stood out here.

Early on a Friday night, my husband and I went here for dinner. The atmosphere fits Murphys and is very inviting. The server helped me with selecting a beer from the separate beer menu and it was so good that I had another. We ordered the calamari and it was great. I got the salmon and my husband ordered the...
