The best fish tacos anywhere! The wood fired pizzas are also excellent. Relaxed atmosphere. You can sit and relax and enjoy good food and conversations.

As a local this one of our go to restaurants, the menu has something for everyone. I have worked my through the menu since it opened and find the wood fired pizza and burgers to be some of the best in the area.

They had a nice variety of choices, pizza, Mexican, burgers. We opted for Mexican. I had the tamale plate and my wife had a pulled pork salad. Both were good, I enjoyed my tamale, the beans and rice were average (not sure what great sides of beans and rice taste like!). The service was just OK, the atmosphere was a... More

Casual atmosphere on two floors and multiple TV screens. They specialize in firewood oven baked pizza but my favorite is the fish taco. A pretty good cheeseburger and fries also available. I often get two meals out of the burrito supreme. Several good beers on tap.

Usual pizza / burger affair. Pretty reasonable prices. Very popular and busy. Tables laid out in rows in canteen style but with character, wooden benches; door handle made from axes etc. Would recommend, but don't expect to be 'posh nosh'.

My boyfriend and I went to Murphys for a concert (Sublime with Rome & Dirty Heads) and were impressed by this little two story eatery in the midst of a handful of equally aesthetically pleasing restaurants and shops. The restaurant itself has very cool decor, axe handles as door handles. Modern paintings on the walls. Super friendly, helpful staff. Delicious... More
