Great pizzas - veggie pizza. Great service, very friendly. Not too many college students. Begin the older guys, we felt very comfortable. Wednesday night we Bluegrass jam session - group of all ages. Really cool.

Was there today at the recommendation of a local. I can only vouch for the lunch fare, but it was THE BEST food I've had anywhere in Boone. Cool breeze on the back deck, huge blackened chicken burrito and ice cold beer... it doesn't get any better. Try to get Kala as your server. She may well be the best... More

I have gone to Murphy's many times as I have a home in Blowing Rock and a son who graduated from App State. It has always been a convenient place and the food, good enough. We went today and it took 20 minutes to get drinks. The server brought the wrong refills 3 times. But that was not the issue.... More

We went for a bite to eat before a wedding. The store front and dining room appeared to be small but there was a great deck in the back with picnic tables that fits plenty. The food was fantastic (They even had pb&j for the kids). The pizza options were amazing and the beer selection was pretty extensive.I am obsessed... More

Murphy's was one of 2-3 restaurants that friends had suggested. Glad we made the visit! Great draft beer selection. The menu implies that wings and pizza are the specialities. Yes they are! I particularly recommend the wings (I tried the boneless). The servings are large, so be prepared. For example, the order of 5 wings will feed most people just... More

Murphy's Restaurant and Pub - been going here for around 20 years. Great food consistently. Laid-back, low key atmosphere with a regular dining area inside, a bar area with live music most weekends, an outside patio (very nice in late spring), and pool tables in back of the bar. Although in a college town, the age of clientele is all... More

We live in Banner Elk and enjoying visiting this area of Boone. We hadn't ever walked towards the end of the main shopping area - glad we did. We found Murphy's at lunchtime. It was not crowded as it was a late lunch. Hostess and wait staff was friendly and attentive. We ordered the garlic knots (served with wings sauce... More
