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 :)
I live in Montana, you would think our
steak would be cheap and delicious, but for the price of steak at murphy's and the service, it beats all hands down, the taste was just right, Murphy's of DC is another fine reason to go back to DC. I think the food here is way better than the real reason i was in DC in the first place, the site's.
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.
You have a real fireplace, great beer,
and a fine bar menu so I no longer have to go any further than one block from my apartment to find this. Furthermore, you show that comfiness and coziness can be thrown into this mix which I love. Even the server I had was in a phenomenally good mood- joking and laughing just like the ambiance of an Irish pub should offer.
The bar had a good range of beers and
spiriits and the barman went out of his way to make us feel welcome as well as giving some sound advice on choice of drinks - good value even when it wasn't Happy Hour!
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.
