We were a party of 6 and certainly had some good meals there. Only thing is we wished the creme brûlée were a little thicker than a tiny portion.

The wine dinners are fantastic and proof that the chef knows well what he is doing. Other times it can be up or down. You can be delighted but just as easily disappointed.

2 weekends in a row we decided at the last minute to go out for dinner, and after another great dinner here we went again. Love the unique specials and the traditional chophouse menu. With a unique twist on some traditional local fare, our guests were impressed with the good choice of wines that weren't from the Carolinas. And with... More

Highlight of the meal was the rib eye, about the only thing worth eating. Appetizer of siracha shrimp was very bready and not seasoned. She crab soup was bland. Chicken and trout not seasoned. Not worth the price.

We were very pleased with this meal. My husband had surf and turf and it was excellent. I had a special that was trout stuffed with crab cake. It was wonderful and had a very nice sauce with it. Service was very good. Quality and value make this a must if in the area. We will be back.

Been here several times before but this time it was exceptional. Ordered the fried chicken strips that was done to perfection, crispy outside and tender inside. My wife had the trout which was outstanding. We finished it off with warm chocolate cake and ice cream. Great meal from start to finish.

We enjoyed the food here. My husband had crab dip as a starter with salad and shrimp to follow and I had salad to start and a surf and turf combo which was very tasty. I chose a crab cake as the surf option which I found a bit too oily for my taste ( maybe I'm not used to... More

So, second time to Murphy , for the casino on a Sunday. First time here every restaurant was closed on a Sunday. Today we were excited that it was open for dinner. So disappointed! Everything was horrible and full of salt. I swear that even my wine had salt. All three of our meals were inedible. DO NOT GO! Eat... More

Sometimes I hesitate when I see some recent so-so reviews, but we decided to try anyway. What a lovely dining establishment. Server was friendly and gave good recommendations. The atmosphere inside could be considered romantic, but is appropriate for families or groups as well and some tables are handicapped accessible. Dining options are available inside or outside. We opted to... More
