We went shopping today to say "Yes" to the wedding dress. We went to Murphy's afterward for a celebratory lunch. Todd was gracious and greeted us at the door. He found us a perfect table. Ross was the perfect waiter. He accommodated our request for a fried green tomato appetizer. Who could ask for more? We lunched on basil tomato... More

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you! Such a treat! This place gets really busy at night so go early. Second time to eat here and did not disappoint. Had the 12oz steak and the portions are big. Chocolate cake was out of this world. Prices are high but ok... More

Nine of us here for dinner and no two orderers were alike. The food was good and plentiful requiring several 'doggie bags'. There seemed to be interesting tastes added where one wouldn't expect it which awoke taste buds all around.

We went to this restaurant for a late supper (about 9pm) on a Saturday night in November. We did not have reservations and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table which was reasonable for a Saturday night crowd. The space was inviting with lots of candle lighting and ambiance. The host, the bartender and the waitresses were all... More

Went with a few friends and it was terrific! They have $2 valet parking which is great because parking is nearly non existent in the neighborhood. I ordered the cheese platter for an appetizer which was plenty for three of us to share. Had some wine and steak, both delicious and steak was perfectly cooked. The service was prompt, courteous...

We went to Murphy's to celebrate my sister's birthday. I informed the hostess that we have a birthday and nothing special was done, not even an acknowledgement by the waitress for my sister. This is so disappointing considering that this is a nice restaurant, I expect a lot more. There was a lot of details missing, my other sister ordered... More

Enjoyed brunch before a Georgia Tech game and it was delicious. Friendly, professional staff and a casual, but hip setting in Virginia Highlands neighborhood. I had the scrambled eggs (two, but the portion looked like six!), chicken sausage with a flavorful kick and creamy cheese grits. The buttermilk biscuits and pumpkin/chocolate chip muffins were a hit pre-meal. The mimosa was... More

Murphy's is one of the best options for restaurants in the famed Virginia Highlands area. There is a wine bar while you wait for dinner. You can purchase your wine from their wine shop and pay a corkage fee and take your bottle to the table. Even with the fee you save $ over typical restaurant charges per glass. The... More

Food is always great here. Bread service is amazing. Fresh juices compliment great cocktails. We had the Waldorf chicken salad sandwich on a croissant with a side salad with champagne Vin( a little thick for my liking but I got it on the side), a side order of the pancake and the chilequiles. Hailey was our server and she was... More
