Murphy's Restaurant4.4 out of 5 stars
This restaurant is one of my favorite places in Atlanta. I am a native, and I have explored the cities cuisine. I love the atmosphere, food, drink selection, and service at Murphy’s. I have been here about 5 times now, and I have not had a bad experience. They always have a changing menu with great options. The food is always well prepared and fresh. They have a rooftop herb garden and having those fresh herbs shows in their cooking. I would recommend this to anyone who comes into the city. Keep up the good work!
Update review for dinner: wanted to try dinner. We started with an appetizer of avocado toast ($16). Yeah that’s right. I ordered the meatloaf and it was very good ($18). I also ordered an old fashioned but was a little disappointed because of the ice. The ice in the old fashioned should be one big piece not little pieces of ice. It wasters it down. Hence I’m taking one star away. They should know better.Brunch: Why I haven’t been to Murphy’s before is beyond me. I love a good brunch and boy is there brunch good. The food is out of this world and so are there muffins and breads. Yesterday I ordered the friend chicken instead of the crab cakes and I was thrilled. I love every single bite and can’t wait to go back for more. My partner ordered the north Georgia trout and he love his meal as well.
The food was good. I had a poor dining experience. After cocktails, I ordered a glass of cabernet with my steak. I presumed this was the house cab. After review of the bill, the waitress had charged me for the most expensive cab by the glass. She was not apologetic and only asked if I wanted to speak with the manager about it. It put a damper on the meal.
