Had our Thanksgiving meal here. Wife had the shrimp. Very big shrimp. I had the Irish Meat Pie. Excellent meal. When you go - go hungry. You will not leave hungry. Fantastic service, atmosphere and food.

We pulled into Murphy's on a blustery rainy day, so of course, we ordered soup. My husband got the house special, she crab soup. It was cream-based, and one of the best crab soups he's had. I ordered a fish/clam chowder with bacon and potatoes, which was also good. We also ate fish and chips and fried oysters. Both did... More

For starters, we certainly did not intend to have a family Thanksgiving dinner at an Irish Pub. However, our original plans did not work out and Murphy's was one of the few places serving Thanksgiving meals at 3 pm. Apparently, the 'Luck of the Irish' was with us! We got a nice table next to a roaring fire - what... More

Pub atmosphere which was very welcoming. Burgers and fish and chips were very good. Irish fare was not as good as I had expected from a good Irish pub. Service was attentive and very good.

They had a real fire burning for us. The Irish meat pie was excellent. The burgers were grilled on charcoal and very good. We enjoyed good service and caught several football games on the TV's.

Don't know why we haven't been back sooner. Food and atmosphere still great. We started off with She Crab Soup and the daily special Ham & Cabbage Soup. Both were excellent. My daughter had fried shrimp, my wife the Irish Stew and I the Meat Pie. Again all were great. We need to visit our locally owned more often.

We went specifically for half price burger night. It was absolutely delicious! It was perfectly cooked with the best charbroiled flavor. We will all be going back after work again maybe to try some of the Irish dishes or maybe just to get another tasty burger! It was a chilly evening and the fireplace was a definite plus to make...

We stopped in after driving for most of the day and were treated to a really good meal. Excellent staff and very clean. Great bar and TVs with football...and plenty of beer. And a warm fireplace! Great for a chilly evening. We had the She Crab soup, Meat pies, and the biggest Reuben sandwich I have ever seen! We will... More
