“Exactly as expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

We were lured in by attractive hawker. We heard there was going to be live music so we rushed to complete our dinner before the amps went on. Very pleasant service and food surprisingly good. We had spicy chicken wings, fried shrimp and beer battered fish sandwich. French fries could use a little work, though. Generous portions. Also, the Negro Modelo on tap was great. I think we were the o,rest people-- by twenty years-- in the restaurant. But we had a nice balcony table, a view of the Malecon, and a nice waitress-- so no complaints.

“Great live music scene and drink specials.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

An amazing bar. Great live music. The band we saw there on a Thursday and Saturday night was awesome. They sang English rocks songs and took request. The drink prices were the best down town. Paid $45 for "open bar" Atari ner by club. But it was pre poured warm beer and bottom shelf liquor. Murphy's we drank until 3am and our bill was still lower than the cover at the so called 'clubs'.

“Slow and just mediocre food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

stopped by here for lunch. service was extremely slow. I'm not talking Mexico slow, thats fine. This was excruciating slow. 20 minutes to get a couple margs and a coke after ordering is pretty crazy.

Food was just mediocre, but given the prices was poor.

“Murphy's Irish Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stopped into Murphy's Irish Pub, We were walking by the Pub and were invited up and it was happy hour. We went up to the second floor and saw a really nice Irish Pub and sat by the front of the bar over looking the ocean. It was a very nice place to stop and relax after walking thru the town. It was pretty hot and humid, so the beer was really cold. I recommend Murphy's Irish Pub the music and drinks were really good. They also have really clean bathrooms.
Well my opinion is to stop in and say Hi to the owners we met John and all were very friendly.
