We sat outside on very nice patio and the noise level was quite
high. I had duck confit and it was “okay” a little fatty. The grit cake it came with was fabulous.
My companions had salads with fish and they enjoyed. Help with wine selection was excellent and it was 1/2 off a bottle night. Nice!!

Murphy's was always my go-to for brunch when I moved to Atlanta in 2012. However, the quality of food seems to have gone down significantly over the last couple of years. I keep wanting to give it another chance, but my visit for brunch last Saturday will be my last. There are other great spots for weekend brunch now, and I would rather take my business somewhere consistently great--not somewhere where the waiter kept serving mediocre food while telling us how lucky we were to be eating brunch at Murphy's.

The wine service as usual was excellent with the proper glasses and perfect temperature. I wish more restaurants would follow this example given what a good bottle of wine costs. I had the new charred goat cheese appetizer which was excellent along with scallop special. The food here just never disappoints and is one of the reason we are such loyal guests.

1st time at Murphys. The cocktails were unique and beautifully done. The bartender allowed the flavors to really come through with the seasonal cocktails, I love love the Gin Jam, simply delightful. The food and service was amazing, great selection. The server even heated the butter up a bit for our bread. The absolute coldest crunchiest Cesar salad, wow it was over the top delicious. Thank you for a great night out with friends on Saturday night.

Murphy's is my favorite go-to neighborhood spot. There's something for even the pickiest of eaters so everyone in a group is happy. The service is friendly and attentive and the wine selection is fantastic. But my favorite thing is the ambiance — the place feels cozy and comfortable and beautiful at once.

A regular at Murphy’s and I feel like their staff is very mediocre lately. They seem put off and not happy to be there. The food selection has been poor lately too.

My cousin from NYC wanted to take us out for dinner on a Monday night and we suggested Murphys. Our waitress was very attentive and the service was great. My cousin really loved the Roast duck which was the Monday special. The fish special was sea bass which was delicious and just melted in my mouth. Murphy’s remains our favorite neighborhood restaurant and never fails to impress our visitors to Atlanta.

This was my second visit in one week. The overall food was delicious. The chicken soup was excellent my first visit. The second visit it was not the same. Too watery, lemony and greasy. Totally disappointed. I will try it again. Maybe the chef was different that made the soup. The trout was excellent!

I’ve always loved Murphy’s. Great location, good food, servers always keep the water and coffee cups filled, and are attentive without being intrusive. My only gripe is the “seat complete parties only” policy for brunch. I hate when other restaurants do it, and I hate it when Murphy’s does it. Even when the other person is just parking the car, you just have to stand around in the crowded foyer. Grr.

I've been to Murphy's many times. Being from Boston it had become a favorite. Our server experience was not typical of Murphy's. We seemed rushed. We ordered a bottle of wine, our waitress spilt the wine on the table a fairly good amount. She said sorry and wiped it with her rag unconcerned if it was on our clothing, fortunately it wasn't. Our appetizer wasn't completely finished before it was taken away right after they delivered the meal?

Overall the food is excellent as well as the atmosphere. I will continue to return and would recommend it to friends.

Oh my food was awesome. I had the fried chicken sandwich the chicken breast was so tender and full of flavor. My server Dunstan made lunch on Tuesday perfect. Should have tipped him more. Only 1 thing made me sad, no sweet tea. I am a Southern Belle living in the South.

The food, as per usual, was excellent. The Guinness Braised Beef is outstanding. We also tried the special bread pudding, the crispy brussel sprouts, and the Murphy's Old Fashioned. Loved it all. They were hosing a St. Patrick's dinner, and had a wonderful band, Ah Surely!. The music was lovely without being too loud. I would have loved to try the Lamb Stew, but they had run out. Oh well, I loved what I had!

Excellent food and service. Only problem, too many tables squeezed together and, consequently, noise level extremely high--to the point of being unable to talk to my dining guest. Tables should not be inches apart (talking 6").
