They only had 6 or 7 beers on tap, but had a selection of about 80 bottled beers. Mostly craft brews and I'm sure that you will find many that you like.

We stopped in for dinner after walking the Riverwalk. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was fun. I would definitely recommend.

The owner makes fresh food daily! Like my favorite, the Shepherds Pie Pocket! Very impressed. And also they pour the Guinness using Nitrogen, instead of co2. Which is how it should be done. Perfect place for a beer and fresh cooked to order lunch.

My husband and I stopped in on a Friday night for drinks and appetizer. Adrienne was bartender, and our waitress. She was very nice and very attentive. We had the Reuben slider pizza for an appetizer and it was very good. I would definitely get...this again. We both had black and tans, Guiness, and a local brewery brew. All very good. We ended up splitting the Bangers and Mash dinner and French Onion soup.. wow! So delicious. We also got desserts to take back to the room, and they were eh, ok. Not the best but I would still go back for drinks and dinner.More

Went here for a late lunch and a cold drink. Nice pub atmosphere and more beer choices than I can list. We tried a couple of different menu items, both all right, but not outstanding. Service was great, and the draft beers were good. I...would definitely go here again for a cold drink or two!More

Our escape from Election Day madness took us back to the excellent Snowbird Mountain Lodge...and per usual a lunch interlude en route at Parson's Pub. We always begin our NC forays at Parson's for a simple reason: Colby and team create and serve the BEST...Reuben sandwich in the country, the world, the universe. (Go ahead and challenge that earned accolade!) My only angst is I cannot pair the Great Reuben with one of the zillions of beers on offer. (I'm driving.) We can also highly recommend the soup of the day - to name two - tomato bisque and broccoli cheddar. And they come super hot, temperature-wise...so give it a few minutes before sipping away. If you find yourself in western NC and genuine pub grub is on your radar, pull over in Murphy and enjoy Parson's top-notch hospitality...and VOTE FOR REUBEN!More

Looking forward to trying Parson's. Went in for dinner. The greeter and servers were not wearing masks. No more needs to be said. We left, went down the street and had a great pizza where the employees were covid responsible.
