“Great Place in Downtown Murphys”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Ate here twice while traveling along Highway 4. Great casual dining with open seating. Excellent prices and perfect for the entire family. Brick oven pizzas, burgers, taco's, tamales, and more. You order at the counter and then have a seat. Downstairs and upstairs dinning areas so there is always plenty of room. Our favorite place when when passing through.

“Fish tacos”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a great casual place for tacos and pizza. It is well priced and in the center of town. If you want something a little for dressier, try their sister restaurant, Grounds, two doors down.

“Our favorite fish taco place in Northern California.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We come to Murphy's just to eat at Firewood. My wife and I both love the fish tacos. My wife usually gets the fish taco meal that includes rice and beans. I focus just on the tacos and order three. They have a nice selection of draft beers and we also order a side of chips and salsa. Pizzas are great too if you like thin crust.

The atmosphere is very casual. Order your food at the counter and find a table. They bring the food to your table when it's ready. There are a few TVs around the restaurant that have sports on them so you can keep an eye on the game if you want. The sound is off so the TVs are not distracting.

“very different atmosphere”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

You place your order at the counter then they bring it to your table. You need to get your own utensils, etc at the counter. Our food was very good.

“Tasty woodfired pizza”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Great spot, delicious pizza and great prices. Nice to view the street activity and get the outside feel with a screened front wall.
