I was there with friends and family for dinner on a Saturday night prior to a Manchester Monarchs game. We sat it the back room where we were seated at a bar-like table for 8. It happened to be Happy Hour with $2 drafts (most beers) and half price appetizers. Our server Keith was very friendly and helpful. Since Guinness was not included as part of the Happy Hour special, our server recommended Backwoods Bas***d instead. My husband liked it very much. They have a very large selection of craft brews available, and most of them were part of the Happy Hour special. Normally if you're paying $2 for a beer, you're limited Bud Light. For appetizers we ordered Buffalo Wings, Nuclear Wings, nachos with chili, quesadillas, and fried pickles. The Buffalo Wings were fairly wimpy, the Nuclear was more along the lines of a real Buffalo wing, definitely not what we'd consider Nuclear. We loved the nachos, the chili had great flavor, quesdillas were very good, and we liked the pickles too (wait for them to cool a bit before eating. One of our party is not a beer drinker, our server went out of his way to find options for her. She had a mixed drink called "A Mess" which was tasty, but strong so she didn't want two. There wasn't much of a wine selection, so our server recommended a Stella Cidre which was a big hit. We chowed so many appetizers that we decided to skip dinner. The next time that we're at a Manchester Monarchs game, we will definitely be stopping in to Murphy's again.

Murphy's used to be a fun location to gather with friends and it is great that they have a huge beer selection.... however, this last experience will make me NEVER go back. I arrived at Murphy's with 4 friends and we asked the hostess where we could sit and she said anywhere and walked away- no greeting and complete jerk. We sat at our table where menus were already placed and we had planned on eating... a waitress never came over until an hour and a half later to pick up empty glasses from the 3 beers each we had to order from the bartender. Needless to say, we did not order food nor leave a tip. Glad to know they take pride in their business as well, because the place is disgusting dirty and the bathrooms INSIDE are not heated and gruesome. Keith Murphy needs to get a grip and focus more on being customer friendly. With the amount of beers they offer they could be a lot different

Gotta live the local establishments. Second time here in about six months (yes I'm an out if towner) but it's great. Bar staff polite and always willing to serve. Beer selection is great and staff pretty knowledgeable. Over 120 to choose from!! Craft beer lovers haven!!
Tired and in need of a refit? Don't think so. A used bar is inviting.. Means many others before you sat, drank, and conversed.

Walking distance from hotels, if you like a great selection of beer (120 taps) then you have to go, we were there on Tuesday and it was all day Happy Hour $2.00 draft almost all of them. Happy Hour on app half off, and the food was excellent the bar staff were excellent, if you like Founders they had 5 taps of them, not including all of the other wonderful beers.
