I can only comment on the dessert as that was the sole reason I went here.

We got the Trio dessert and needless to say it was delicious! The dessert was...

HOW A *4* BECAME A 2.5 I had high expectations for this restaurant considering the fact my boyfriend raved about how he had been a twenty year patron. The experience started off nice as we were greeted by a bubbly host and we were seated immediately. After we sat is when the highly underwhelming dining experience began, we were given very bland/ uninterested/ unenthusiastic service . All servers should have a basic understanding of how to engage a new customer whether it is: - hello or good evening my name is ... - is this your first time dining with us... - what brought you out this evening/ what is the occasion ... - let me tell you about our establishment... No establishment should take advantage of the means of its customer base. As a restauranteur, we must always remember that when a customer patronizes our business they are actively paying with their time and wage. Based on the average bill at Murphy's for two will be roughly $120 for appetizers, dinner, drinks ,and dessert. Based on the 2017 median college graduates hourly income Which equates to $24.00 before taxes and $16.81 after taxes. In short, my dining experience cost me 7.13 work hours, without tip for an experience that lasted less than 1 hour. When restaurants and staff fail to recognize this in diminishing economy the connection can be lost forever. Make no mistake Murphy's has been around for 35 years and they are in no risk of going anywhere anytime soon. But, remember no one is Too big to fail. HIGHLIGHTS: The meatloaf was to die for and the Pepper shrimp was amazing. Everything I ate tonight was as great as what my boyfriend described it to be for him over the past 22 years. I hope that they can find more suitable server to represent what the founders created 35 years ago. As a left Murphy's, my boyfriend asked the delightful bartender the name of our server Blake. PS: My boyfriend would like for you all to bring back the Murphy's baked potato and the original crab cake recipe.

Love it!! Great service and great food. We went for a birthday dinner and our birthday girl is a regular here. She usually orders the chicken and that day it just wasn't up to par. She casually mentioned it in passing to our server. Before we knew it, the manager came and apologized and was very gracious. When it was time to pay, they told her her meal was free meal and she was offered a free dessert. Service was above and beyond! Bravo!

I took my husband here for an early Father's day brunch with our 11 yo son. Candace was our server and she was very nice and knowledgeable. My son really liked her and would like to go back Everything we had was great, including our Bellini's, frittatas, waffles, grits, pancakes and sausage (maybe a little spicy). All of the food was fresh and taste great! No matter what you order I don't think you'll go wrong, so take a group and try various menu items. Parking is $2 Valet, unless you luck up and find a spot nearby/on the street. But hey that's like pocket change, right?
