“Consistently good. Nice menu. Great ambiance. Joe!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Third time I have dined here as I have friends in the area. I live in the Bay Area and come to Murphys often to visit my friends. Always enjoy the Grill and varied menu. Nothing pretentious - just good food. The patio seating is awesome and has a great feel - if you like to people watch - good spot. Joe - our server for all 3 visits, was wonderful! Genuine, friendly and attentive (and very cute). Great dining experience.

“Nice place to sit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Cute place with seating right on main street. Great people watching! Salad was fantastic; artichoke fritters sweet and heavy (not yummy). Both entrees were quite good, and food at other tables also looked nicely done. Our waitress was really nervous - friendly but a bit odd.

“very poor offering”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Visited here with 2 small children and 3 adults. The waitress was very friendly and efficient but unfortunately what the management offered was very poor. We asked for water and she explained that it was tap water which was fine by us. But unfortunately the water was so highly chlorinated as to be undrinkable (think swimming pool). We asked for bottled water but were simply told they don't have it. If only tap water is offered and it is a high chlorine supply, they should install a filter tap.
Secondly, they did not have a written or printed menu for children, which made the children feel like after-thoughts.
Third, their caprese was a desultory effort. One tomato with a few basil leaves and 3 slivers of mozzarella - and 10 dollars.
Fourth, no fresh fruit. In California!
The strength of this restaurant is its patio which is a delight and the waitress was very nice. But there is better food in many places in Murphys.

“Patio Dining at its best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

We entered even after seeing the "Closed" sign and the owner was seated at the bar. We welcomed us in and assured us we could still get a good service and meal and he seated us on the patio. The patio is on the Main Street and the night was welcoming. We had full acess to the menu and the service was crisp and friendly. We really enjoy this place.
