Salad was good but everything went downhill from there. My nephew and I ordered the ribeye steak ($36 each) medium well. His came out mooing and mine was not much better. The waiter took them back; when they came back mine was half overdone and...still too pink on the other side. His wasn't much better. My husband ordered the prime rib ($36). He received a thick piece of dried-out, unseasoned meat that looked like it had been sitting around. For the prices charged, this was not worth it. I didn't even bother to eat mine. Waited a long time to get the food, but was highly disappointed.More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with Murphy Chop House. The meal was fabulous, and the service was amazing. I highly recommended this fine dining establishment for any special occasion. The peach bread pudding was my favorite.

We have been coming to chophouse for quite some time. On the last two visits (lunch) it was underwhelming. Had to order my drinks at bar since no one came to the table after waiting for some time. Then had to order food from bar...as well. Husband ordered a Large salad but it was not large at all. My small one looked like a side salad. quality good but too small for the price and we are not huge portion people. When people ask me...I say go there for a drink and app and enjoy the terrace.More

Girls trip dinner. My first visit but my friends return visit. Wonderful selection and food! A tad pricey but so worth it. We sat inside but we will definitely sit outside and listen to live music when it’s not raining. I will absolutely return here...on my very next trip up!More

In the past three weeks we have eaten at this establishment on three occasions. At no time was the service and the food less than excellent. I cannot possibly imagine what criteria people are using when they try and trash this fine dining restaurant. I...hope that the great people who run and serve at this place keep up their excellent work. We are from Florida and are just visitors here and have no reason to promote it other than their really good food and service.More

This is the second time we have eaten at Murphy’s chophouse in the first time wasn’t that great but we decided to give it another try since there were some good reviews for the restaurant and there’s not that many choices in Murphy. My friend...ordered the prime rib and I had the trout! After a lengthy wait we finally got our food and it was just lukewarm! Evidently it must have sat for a while and food doesn’t taste very good when it’s not at least warm! We did complain to the waiter and he apologized and offered us one free dessert which was nice but we won’t eat there again.More

We ate an early dinner on the patio served by Grace. Everything was truly excellent, the server, the soup, the main course and the desert. We had the special soup of the day which was a beautifully balanced tomato and vegetable. My wife had the...Chicken Parmesan and I enjoyed the baby back ribs. For desert we shared a freshly made creme brûlée. This was all enjoyed with an excellent bottle of New Zealand wine. This is the second time we have eaten at The Murphy Chophouse and both meals have been excellent. This restaurant is highly recommended!More

Went on Tuesday night. Very nice service - I tipped the service 20%. Requested indoor seating for three (3) - no problem - a pleasant surprise in the context of virus. Drinks - a couple of old fashioned - excellent. appetizer - calamari - nice...slightly spicy/sweet sauce, was truly delicious. Salads - several types - all very good Entrees - 1 crab cake and 2 trout. Crab Cakes were alright (the 2 cakes may have previously been frozen - but it doesn't matter, it was good enough). The trout was soft, mushy, and quite bland. A BIG disappointment. We did not eat. Took home and ended up tossing. The sides were not freebies. One which I selected was macaroni with Gouda cheese. It was not macaroni - instead a cheap penne pasta with a glob of cheese microwaved on top. It was sad - I did not eat it. Asparagus was soft and poor. What happened to seasoning? They need a real chef. The other positives cannot save a grossly inadequate main entree and poor sides - given a price of $180 (including tip) for 3 - something needs to be fixed. Will never be back.More

Second time here. Just as good as the first. Great service. Great food. Very chill atmosphere. Just ignore the uptight Susans and Brads that come in. They're harmless.
