Even though it's the only game in town for a full breakfast, Grounds is consistently good. Small menu with options for vegetarians and gluten free eaters. Worth a visit.

Since we live in Murphys , we have visited Grounds many times; breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Grounds is our first choice when we have friends or relatives visiting. Food quality is great, and not at an outrageous price. The only thing that Grounds is missing is atmosphere, unless you are able to get one of the outside tables.

Great for lunch and dinner. Great wine selection plus it's very consistent. Recently redid the interior and added great pictures of celebrities booking (jail) picture.

This Murphys restaurant has been around for a while and continues to surprise my wife and I with their delightful and very tasty food! Great Breakfasts, lunch and dinner menu. You can also stop by for just a Cappacino and pastry. They also have a nice outside patio for those warm summer afternoons or evenings.

Our family of three enjoyed dinner at Grounds. The atmosphere was busy but pleasant. The fly that annoyed us throughout dinner detracted from what was an otherwise excellent dinner. There was a mixup on my wife's dinner as she specified no onions on her potato but the dinner came loaded with onions. The filet came back too well done. The... More

We ate breakfast and lunch here while in Murphys. The food was good, not great - e.g. my quesadilla had way too many peppers in it, obscuring the flavor of the cheese, so that was disappointing. Other family members thought their food was fine. I'm guessing there are better options.

Grounds is one of our favorite restaurants in Murphys, especially for breakfast. Their Belgian waffle is crisp and light and simply the best I've ever eaten (try it with the marionberry syrup!) and the omelets are big and fluffy. Lunch and dinner are also excellent and the servings are generous without being overwhelming.

Hmm, My wife and I, our two grown children and our two little children, ages 6 and 8. Where could we go that would please everyone on our special family getaway? This was the place. My 6 year old devoured the omelete he ordered, (ironically it was the msot expensive breakfast among us as he added bacon to it.) The... More
