A nice spot for a casual meal and drinks with friends. Good selection of food on the menu and lots of good beer. Average prices but big portions. Fast, friendly service even when the dining room was jam packed! It was dark so we were not able to appreciate the view like other reviewers talk about - just means we... More

Very nice place to eat with large variety on menu and daily specials. Love pizza Monday and variety of beers and drinks. Also love desserts. Friendly staff and great local place for residents and also some very clean, quaint rooms on second floor. Several summer guests have stayed here which is close to river walk.

The food and services was great some of the best that I have had in awhile. The staff was very friendly. Would go back again and would take my kids there.

Not bad food, but pricey. The atmosphere is good, and the view is spectacular. Love looking at the Pine River, and the boatsl

Dropped by on a Saturday afternoon, very hungry, six of us (2 children). The muffaletta and the Reuben were HUGE! My son could only eat half of his half order - and he's a big eater! I had a small pizza, and it was delicious. Friendly, helpful service, and we had plenty to eat.

Hard to beat the deal on Monday's = good pizza and good price ! The large iis half price and comes with generous toppings. You can have a cold adult beverage while you wait. Very busy time, so plan accordingly

I've eaten here several times both for lunch and dinner. The food is okay (average) and the service is fine. The one thing I don't like is the chairs are very uncomfortable as our the booths. If you go you'll soon realize what I mean. Could be a 4 star if there was some comfort when eating. This is why... More

We went late afternoon when not crowded. Good choice. Slow service but very friendly. Food was good. Next time I'll try pizza, that liked good. Friday fish is excellent. Hamburgers good. Don't spend extra on sweet potato fries, regular ones better.

I have been to the Murphy Inn many times because I have family in the area. Every time, my thought is that it could be so much more than it is. Don't get me wrong, the menu is extensive and there is something for everyone (burgers, sandwiches, pizza, fish, etc.). Also the bar and dining room are separate, so you... More
