I was on a vacation with my family in the Boone, NC area the week after Christmas and we were recommended this restaurant by the hotel staff where we were staying. The food was good, but for the amount of people in the place when we ordered our food (two other couples), it took an extremely long time for our... More

My wife and I felt like a pizza last night and so we went to Murphy's Pub. This is a typical college town hang out (Boone is the home of Appalachian State.), but we like its laid back atmosphere and prompt service. It was a beautiful Autumn evening and Murphy's has an outdoor porch. But the best part of this... More

My family and I heard about Murphys from a friend of a friend. We walked in and we were told to sit anywhere. After 8 minutes we were finally greeted by someone who took our drink order and then ran off. After another 10 minutes we got our waters we ordered. 20 minutes after that the "waitress " if you...

Nothing fancy here. Food is great, drinks are reasonable. I'm local, go there several times a week. Great beer selection, good draft choices. Sports bar, college town.

Great pizzas - veggie pizza. Great service, very friendly. Not too many college students. Begin the older guys, we felt very comfortable. Wednesday night we Bluegrass jam session - group of all ages. Really cool.

Was there today at the recommendation of a local. I can only vouch for the lunch fare, but it was THE BEST food I've had anywhere in Boone. Cool breeze on the back deck, huge blackened chicken burrito and ice cold beer... it doesn't get any better. Try to get Kala as your server. She may well be the best... More

I have gone to Murphy's many times as I have a home in Blowing Rock and a son who graduated from App State. It has always been a convenient place and the food, good enough. We went today and it took 20 minutes to get drinks. The server brought the wrong refills 3 times. But that was not the issue.... More

We went for a bite to eat before a wedding. The store front and dining room appeared to be small but there was a great deck in the back with picnic tables that fits plenty. The food was fantastic (They even had pb&j for the kids). The pizza options were amazing and the beer selection was pretty extensive.I am obsessed... More

Murphy's was one of 2-3 restaurants that friends had suggested. Glad we made the visit! Great draft beer selection. The menu implies that wings and pizza are the specialities. Yes they are! I particularly recommend the wings (I tried the boneless). The servings are large, so be prepared. For example, the order of 5 wings will feed most people just... More
