I liked their chili and pub chips, and sandwiches, but all the food is good and Murphy's is a great pub environment to skip into and seek a fun escape. Reasonable prices, and a simple place you will return to - that's Murphy's!

Food was fine and the drinks were fine but just your basic pub. Good for a quick bite. Staff was friendly and there is outdoor seating.

This was an alright little place. Good beer, pub food. Service was average, nothing spectacular. The environment is decent - think neighborhood pub. I was not blown away with anything about it, but if you are looking for a cold beer and some pub grub,...More
