“Come a few times and you feel loike family”
Reviewed November 12, 2011

The food is fresh, very good, and interesting. Sioban, the owner, cares about food and you can tell. I like just about everything on the menu especially the fried fish sandwich and the lamb burger. The entrees are great too. Make sure you save room for dessert, absolutely the best bread pudding and panna cotta.

“Delicious food in cozy atmosphere”
Reviewed June 11, 2011

Friends took us here when we were visiting from Philly. I've never eaten at an Irish pub before, and it was a revelation.

Our friends are regulars. The owner greeted them by name and served us herself.

Potato leek soup, hard cider, corned beef & cabbage (with root vegetables) were all delicious. Strawberry crisp and bread pudding were outstanding. My father loved the background music. The corned beef was still delicious 3 days later for lunch.

“Tasty Irish Pub”
Reviewed June 6, 2011

I had been to this pub years ago and saw a great Irish trio and had a fantastic meal. We heard great things about Matt Murphy's from friends we were visiting in Brookline and for the most part it did not disappoint. It has changed since we were last there. It is more upscale now and somehow I liked the old bunny paintings better than the chic look of the current bar. The food remains delicious, if not a little too expensive for pub food. Where it used to be a place I would go for a beer or one of their house fruit-infused whiskeys, it is now a place I would probably only go for dinner

“A crowd pleaser for this family.”
Reviewed May 27, 2011

We ate at Matt Murphy's on the recommendation of another guest in our hotel and everyone left happy. The food is simple but good: there is a delicious roast chicken, a range of sandwiches, fish and chips for my teenage son and a nice range of entrees for the adults. It was a little pricey for pub food but it was also not just pub food. All in all, a good choice.

“This is a fabulous upscale Irish pub with delicious food and impeccable service!”
Reviewed March 15, 2011

You would never know by the outside look of it, what a gem of a place this is!!! Music playing in the background, waitstaff is very friendly, and the corned beef special on Sundays is out of this world! A bit pricey overall but well worth it!
