Stopped in for lunch with the family. Most items on the menu were $5.95, good value for Irish favorites & bar food. Waiter was very nice and checked with the kitchen regarding our son's peanut allergy. Great experience!

This is a fun place to visit. You can come with a small group of friends, and leave with a bigger group of friends. Drinks are not overpriced and the live music was good. The one negative for me was the urinal in the mens restroom is exposed to the door.

We have often been to Murphys as a couple, this trip we traveled with the grandkids and stopped here for lunch. Surprisingly kid friendly with a kids menu. We had a hot pub lunch on a rainy afternoon, and 3 generations of us had a fun time. Traditional pub fare / bar food. Not a fancy lunch, but definitely hits the spot if you're craving pub food and atmosphere. Lots of fun in the evening with live Irish music and sing-along. Very friendly and efficient service. Very reasonable prices.

As a local, I have been reluctant to reveal Murphy's to the many tourists who walk down King St. It is indeed a local favorite, and I particularly favor the Sunday brunch. The atmosphere is fun and chatty, the food is excellent, you get a free welcome glass of champagne, with refills for only a $1, and the brunch cost is only $9.95. Brunch is served from 10-3, but you better get here by 10:30 or make a reservation. It's that popular.
