As you walk down the street in Murphys we discovered this great restaurant. They cook the food in a small kitchen but it is one of the best restaurants in Murphys Once you order be prepared for the food to come in less than 5 minutes.. outstanding service

The owner is pro Marijuana. You decide if you want to frequent this place. Not worthy to eat here. My food was Luke warm when served.

Really nice breakfasts. Have never ordered anything here that hasn't been good. Cute little place with a couple of tables on the sidewalk. If you have your dog with you, this is perfect. Nice staff, fast and efficient.

We were so happy we found this place for breakfast! Their breakfast burritos were delicious and they had a bacon waffle that was a very rich treat. Really cool spot downtown.

Stopped by here on our way to Ironstone Vineyards. The food was good and arrived quickly. Staff was polite but not very friendly. Not rude, just serious I guess....The restaurant was clean and modern. Not sure if I'd go back. I'm not in Murphys often so I might explore other restaurants when I'm out there just for variety.

Having never been to Murphys, I picked the top rated restaurant on TripAdvisor -what else ? Made reservations and upon arrival was impressed with the decor. Clean, modern, simple. Next came the menu and all the dishes seemed contemporary and perhaps, a little innovative and not what you'd expect in such a small town.Service was good and food arrived quickly.... More

This place was a bit of a disappointment. The menu looked good and the ambiance (on the surface) looked good. Sadly thats where anything positive ended. The staff were a bit full of themselves and while not exactly rude aren't particularly welcoming or friendly. The food was OK but nothing to write home about. I had the elk which was... More

Fresh, great menu. Lots of options for lunch if you're visiting Murphys to wine taste. Grounds has wonderful options and a nice, quaint, local feel to it.
