Murphy's Restaurant4.4 out of 5 stars
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.
Very nice restaurant with extensive wine selection. The service was good send the food was ok. Prices are higher than average. Really nice atmosphere. Parking is a pain (the lot is grossly inadequate so plan to park on the street) and it gets really busy (they don't take reservations on the weekends). Overall, I'd recommend.
Really good pies. The key lime was insane! They used to have a very good creme brulee but I didn't see it on the menu today. Great wine selection and the staff is very knowledgeable in wine. Only problems are a lack of parking and higher prices than I believe are warranted.
