First things first. You must ask for ADAM for your server. He's personable and on top of things. Night one: The lamb shepherd's pie was scrumptious and very filling. There was plenty of meat, vegetables and gravy. The potatoes were real and the gravy tasted like it was homemade. The buffalo meatloaf was also delicious and the portion was very... More

Thinking this was an Irish Pub type establishment and wanting to get a Black & Tan, we stopped by Murphy's Pub & Grill. Once seated I was told they didn't have the Guinness and Bass mix to fill my wishes so I tried a Crispen instead. On to the menu....there are many interesting menu choices, so I went with the...

Upscale pub. Friendly server. Nice motif. Menu was what you would expect for a pub. Housemate chips and burgers looked good. My husband had the buffalo meatloaf sandwich which he enjoyed. I chose the pulled pork sandwich.......good but very spicy.

After parking on Main St., we walked here past Thirsty's, which was almost empty - on a pleasant Saturday evening. Yet Murphy's had a half hour wait for a table. By luck we snagged bar seats. We had planned on wine, but this is clearly a beer place. Dinner was pretty good. The veg's in the shepherd's pie should have... More

Lively, warm and inviting atmosphere! Great menu with some unique items such as "redneck sausage sampler" and a green apple, caramelized onion and Brie burger, the Murphy Burger! Delicious! Great service! Definitely coming back!

We had a large group and the service was especially good given the number of people we had. There's an awesome beer selection and the food is excellent.

My wife and I decided to try somewhere other than one of the "I know the menu by heart" establishments. We were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere was upbeat, pleasant and service was fast and very friendly. Not only was the food very good, but the portions were hearty as well. Definitely worth a visit-but go hungry!

We purchased their b que. It was good but a little spicy. It was good but hot! We had some ice cream for dessert, which cooled our mouths off. We had very good service!
