We had lunch here the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. We arrived right as they opened and the place filled up fast. Even with two big groups and several small children, it never seemed noisy. The building is old, simply decorated, and very clean. We had fried oysters and frog legs, both delicious. The beans were really tasty, well seasoned. Salad bar is small but adequate. The service was friendly and efficient. We will go back to work our way through the menu.

The food is awesome, alittle disappointed with the price increase but guess with today's economy its expected. Several amazing waitresses, although there are a few more interested in themselves than the customers. Generally the service and food far exceed our expectations. We love going on the weekend and just watching the regulars. The waitresses have such a good time with the customers.

My 3 brothers and I selected Murphy's Steakhouse as a luncheon/meeting place for our periodic gatherings since it was roughly a half-way point for the most distant of us (the 4 of us reside in San Antonio, Houston/Spring, Georgetown, and Austin, TX). While none of us had ever been to Murphy's or to Winchester before, we were drawn to selecting it due to its location and its website that indicated it was one of those 'good-ole-boy' friendly Texas restaurants located in a small town. We were surprised when we arrived at the restaurant at about 12:30pm on a Wednesday - parking was hard to find in a town that isn't more than 3 or 4 streets long. Inside, almost all of the tables were occupied, but the 7 of us (including spouses) grabbed a long table and enjoyed the next hour and a half of dining on delicious food selected from a menu with a very wide assortment of food, including steak, seafood, burgers, sandwiches [chicken fried steak sandwich, ribeye steak sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich...], pasta, and "dinners" that didn't fit in the other categories [chicken fried steak, chicken breast, chicken fried chicken...]. Our table ordered steaks, shrimp, chicken fried steak, grilled chicken breast, and blackened catfish - and everything was simply fabulous. Also fabulous was our server, who typifies the small-town, friendly charm, coupled with a thoroughly professional knowledge of the menu items and how to provide exceptional and friendly service to her customers. Hopefully the kitchen won't purchase a new weight scale, as all our 10oz or 12oz steaks were clearly significantly larger than their advertised size, and each was done exactly right.

We'll certainly use Murphy's for our meeting place again in the near future!

Friends said "Go to Murphys if you want a great steak". OK! Where is Murphys? It's in Winchester.... Not too far from Smithville, La Grange or even Bastrop and Giddings. Murphys is a country place, rather large, and you need reservations and a big appetite! We went with a group of 8 and ordered everything from steaks to burgers All good...except my "filet" which I believe was a strip...although the waitress assured me it was a filet! Salad bar was nice and pot of beans was even better. The menu is pretty broad, steaks, seafood, burgers and sandwiches. It was loud, lots of families and generally a nice night out and worth the drive!

This place is a gem. The food is excellent and larger portions than you expect. Everything is bigger in Texas. You won't go wrong with a steak. There is a salad bar and fresh beans to enjoy. This is a charming and casual place. Great place for all party sizes. I recommend reservations for Friday and Saturday evenings.
