Rueben is the best I ever had! Great food. Smelled like a frat house the day after a party (guessing because of beer in the carpet). Waiting staff very friendly. A little loud but all in all, I will return many times for the great food.
Megan is the best. Mngr/bartender, always with a smile and so of the best service I have got in Old Town. I go here way to much. Weekends are gonna be way crowded, but fun festive crowd. Lots of tourist and such loving the Irish bar tunes. Secret, upstairs bar will not be as crowded and has different music Wed wing night also.
Friday and Saturday night are at lot of fun here. They have live singing on the first floor and everyone joins in on the fun! Nothing like a pub sing along and tasty drinks, that will put a smile on just about anyone looking for a good irish time! ;)
I have been going here since around 1986. Great vibes and service. I met a cute girl here and married her. The fireplace in the winter is very cozy!
The atmosphere of Murphy's was amazing. It was everything an Irish Pub should be. It was crowded and noisy (but we could still converse with each other) and the service was good
Guiness, a 12 year old Jameson's, and live music ... I was set for the night.
Plenty of booze to choose from, the bartenders are always friendly and get your order both correct and back to you on time. I've been here a few dozen times
To the point: Murphy's is the spot for good food, good friends, and great atmosphere.
We stop in here at least once per trip. We got here around 6:30 on Friday night & the place was packed and very loud. We had to park across the street, luckily public parking started @7. They take reservations and there were several large parties here during this visit. We got the tuna bites appetizer, which was very good. They are blackened pieces of tuna steak and come with a lemon wedge and tarter sauce. I ordered Irish stew, which was good, although a wee bit salty and light on the meat. The carrots, potatoes and celery were in large slices. The soda bread was great! Hubby ordered meat and potato pie. Very filling and full of flavor. Comes covered in a dark brown gravy adding even more flavor. We'll definitely keep comin here. Highly recommended. Great atmosphere.
