Best advice is to make a reservation if you are coming in on a Saturday night, as they get packed! We had a reservation and were seated quickly. The service was a bit slow, but they were slammed, so it was understandable. Entrees come with a trip to the salad and bean bar. The beans are wonderful and have large... More

Small town venue. Worth the drive off the beaten path if you are in the area. They have a bean bar that is free when you purchase food! Their beans are delicious.

I really liked the atmosphere and service, but there was just something not right about the steaks. The salad bar was good and I enjoyed the delicious beans. But it was the thing the restaurant was supposed to be famous for that I couldn't understand. I had a rare 12 ounce sirloin that I had to take out my pocket... More

We have heard about Murphy's a lot since coming to La Grange, so we decided to check them out. The address on here is misleading - Winchester is not in La Grange, it's a little place maybe 11 miles out. When you arrive, pretty much all there is is the steakhouse, an ice cream parlor that appears to maybe also... More

Great place for dinner, but make reservations! Love the "old post office". They have a decent salad bar, but the beans are the absolute best! The steaks are amazing, in flavor and size. This is definitely worth the ride out to the country!

This is a wonderful steakhouse in Winchester, Texas. It still has an official post office in the restaurant. The steaks are good, there is a full salad and pinto bean bar. You can get a beer with your meal. Reservations are recommended on a weekend night.

We have been to Murphy's several times and have always ordered the steaks!! They has several different cuts and sizes so you have quite a few choices. Great friendly service. The salad bar has some good toppings and dressing. The homemade beans are delicious! Side portions are very generous. The pecan cobbler was fantastic.

Searched Tripadvisor for a place to stop for lunch while on a road trip. Ended up further off the highway than expected, but the scenery and ambiance were worth it. The menu is extensive and lunch specials for $8 were available. The wait staff were all friendly, but there didn't seem to be one specific person that you dealt with... More

We drove from Sugar Land with mom to celebrate her birthday here. Other family members drove from Austin. The ride there is scenic once you leave Hwy 71. Mom was amazed at the location and the size of the town. And if we had planned it, there was a local cow hand on his horse trying to rope a stray.... More

The steaks are OK can be chewey with lots of fat. Catfish is excellent and the hamburgers are great. Chicken fried steak is very good. Large portions served.
