Just wanted a simple hamburger and beer, so I went here for a quick dinner. The burger was very good, cooked to my specifications, and the fries were crispy and tasty. Beer was cold and fresh. It is nothing more than a simple pub, but if that is what you want then Murphy's fits the bill.
They have these awesome little happy hour wings that are really good.
Local to the nearby Omni Shoreham Hotel, we visited several times during our recent two week stay in Washington DC.
Staff are quick and friendly, and the food is great, at a very reasonable price.
Too warm to take advantage of the outdoor seating, but indoors was cool and inviting.
Service is always prompt and friendly, beer cold, and appetizers / bar food is fine. I love the wings. They are the best in town. I always ask for them to be a little overdone in the deep fryer and am never disappointed. Great place to go for a late happy hour...in the summer on the patio and in the winter by the fireplace.
Our hotel was across the street, so I stopped in here almost every day for a beer and a chair on the way back to the room after walking all day in DC. I experienced attentive service, decent prices during happy hour and a nice patio. We had Sharon on two occasions and she was just fantastic-friendly and fast. My son can eat massive quantities of food, so the 25 cent wings during happy hour were priced just right. I think he ate at least 40 per visit. Plus, the were crispy and had just the right amount of heat. I know, it's an Irish pub, but come on people- Who can resist 25 cent wings? I also had the crab cakes and the were pretty yummy- handmade and not too much filler. The New England clam chowder was also tasty- thick and hearty and it hit the spot. Go for: patio, people watching, 25 cent wings and 2 dollar yuenglings during happy hour.
We had to stop at a pub and so Murphy's of D.C. was the place. We both ordered meat and potato pie and were stuffed after this meal. It was a large slice with a good flavored ground beef and a great crust on the pie. I took a chance and ordered the pecan pie and it was very good. The ratio of pecans to syrup filling was at least 50/50 (maybe a little more pecans on top of pecans) – great! The pecans were fresh and the tops were a little toasted. The pie crust was very good and the whipped cream was added to the slice of pie at the bar – real whipped cream. Nice local group watching the game.
If you are staying at the Marriott at Wardman Park then walk right past Harry's Pub and down the driveway and get really good food we have eaten there for lunch and dinner they serve food till midnight on weekends so get a full day in in DC and have a grat dinner and relax. The other comments about service in my opinion must be from people that forgot they were in a real pub
After the superbowl, sometimes you don't want to go home and prepare for the week ahead. Maybe you'd rather grab just one more beer with a couple friends and discuss the finer things in life, like S&T policy and your excitement for super duper Tuesday, that is just around the corner. Or maybe, you'd rather just marvel at the fact that you are sitting by a true fireplace. That's right, a real throw-another-log-on fireplace.
Yes, Murphy's has it. They also have a nice selection of beers on tap. I wouldn't call it a "pub" as it has a decent amount of modernness about it, but I can see myself coming back here for a good beer, with good friends, around a fire :)
This was a nice place to bring my family. We went during classic dinner hours and received great food and service. I loved their Irish stew. They also had great onion-rings and overly generous portions.
