This is the place to go meet friends, have a drink, get a great bite to eat, and relax! It's cozy, comfortable and gives you the feeling of being away from it all. While there is limitedt this place. parking for customers, there is a huge lot for metered parking in the train lot, right next door. Can't say enough.... More

If you want to enjoy a "Cheers" type of experience, try McMurphy's. The food is decent pub food and priced reasonably. We enjoy eating at the bar where there is a crowd of regulars that all know each other. The fireplace in the winter really adds to the atmosphere.

Stopped by one night for dinner with a Groupon. Service was very good and the waitress attentive. She recommended the Shepherd's Pie which was very tasty. My husband had the steak which was just okay. Bread and a side salad would have been a welcome addition to dinner. Parking is a big problem in this part of town. We came... More

We pass by MacMurphy's frequently, and even stopped in once but this time we went for dinner. This tavern is right at the end of the Ridgewood Train station and is not well lit but once you open the door, you are meet by a warm and friendly bar atmosphere. We were quickly seated by our server who was very... More

I wanted to treat my friend to a nice lunch so we ended up here. I know this restaurant to be somewhat of an institution here in Ridgewood so in was expecting something great. NOT So much. We were not greeted at the door, nobody was in the place eating. No wait staff were evident. The only evidence that they... More

Stopped here to grab a drink. The service was great and the drinks inexpensive. I didn't get any food so I can't say anything on that.

We love coming for dinner on trivia night. My kids love the burgers. Not a big selection on the menu, but they offer delicious quality food, and the servers are very attentive.

My wife and I ate here tonight and enjoyed our dinner. We both had the crab cakes which were very good. We started off with French onion soup which was delicious. The salad was fresh greens not iceberg lettuce which we both enjoyed. The dressings were very good as well. We both thought the service was very good and we... More

Dine here at least once a month. Parking is easy and rarely is there a wait for a table. Bar is a little dark and dingy and the dining room is "rustic", which is nice if you like that kind of thing. Meals have always been very good or better. The only thing you may have to do on occasion... More
