I've only come for brunch on Saturdays or Sundays. I usually like to come before 9:30am so I can beat the crowd and not wait for a table. In terms of...

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.

I came to this restaurant with high expectations after it was recommended to me by a friend. I showed up with some friends that were visiting from Florida for the first time in 6 years. I was let down horribly by their service, We were a party of five and were turned away because "they didn't accept parties of 5". There were clearly plenty of tables where they could have sat us. They could have added a chair to a table. But no, instead we were told that we had to leave because they wouldn't accept a 5 person party "had we been 4 people we would be accepted". I'd like to point out that we were all dressed appropriately and were being very polite. We were treated horribly in return. I'm sad to say this because I was told their food was good. Overall horrible experience, definitely not returning.

Good food, well maintained dining area and friendly service. Dont forget to ask for specials and their price. Prepare yourself for a long wait. My waits have always been close to 30 mins. Has $2 valet parking service. Takes the pressure of looking for a spot in that crowded location. Pricing is medium-high but the food is worth more than what you pay. Good value for money. Personally, I feel the portions are small for me so I end up sharing 3 entrees between 2 people. Food quality and taste never fails to impress.
