We've past by Murphy's Family Restaurant many times without stopping in so we decided to give it a try. Great decision! Murphy's offers a lunch buffet with some outstanding home cooking. Nothing fancy, just a good old, down home kind of place with great food and great prices.

We walked in, took one look at the buffet for lunch and turned around and walked back out. Now we will eat almost anything, but not from this buffet!

Spacious place that accommodated our family. Loved the fried eggplant! Such a great selection of seafood...boiled or fried. Top it off with a bite of sweet peach cobbler. Beware if you are handicapped in any way...the bathroom has a big step up to get to it and the commode is very short. Please consider putting a high toilet in! We... More

Murphy's is a family style restaurant with a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner with a seafood buffet on Friday and Saturday nights. I don't know about the buffets but I will before we leave the area. The shrimp and fish Po'Boys are delicious and you'll have a tough time finishing one, they're huge.

I seldom go to Murphy's since there are far better restaurants in Amite. Lunch features a rather mediocre buffet with very limited choices. This place is, however, popular with local folks and is crowded at lunchtime. It appears to be a place for locals to meet rather than a place to get a good meal.

Their fried and baked chicken on the buffet is wonderful. I always eat way too much. Their fried zucchini is awesome. If you leave there hungry, it's your own fault.

basic eatery, good buffet with nice family setting, could use a bit of upgrade on menu though, clean with good service.

You want Olive Garden atmosphere then go to Olive Garden; you want Outback or Red Lobster, then go to Outrback or Red Lobster.

This was my second visit to Murphy's Family Restaurant in Amite Louisiana; my first visit was a year ago and it was not a good experience. I had arrived near the end of the lunch hour of the buffet closing and there wasn't much food and what was left it was old and soggy! The appearance was dingy, dirty, nasty... More
