We always have at least one meal at Grounds when visiting Murphys. This time our choice was tostada salads at lunch and they did not disappoint. Fresh,crisp greens, perfectly dressed - delicious! The half salad was a more than ample serving.

Went to grounds and had excellent waitresses and delicious food. Very deceiving looking place but lots of room. Food was quick, hot and very tasty. Some of the best ribs I had eaten.

We recently dined here and were absolutely delighted. First, we were not able to get reservations through Open Table so we just showed up (because it was a Tuesday evening we didnt think we'd have a problem getting a table). The were lovely, giving us a nice table. We showed up a little before 7 and there was just one... More

Friendly staff, delicious food and no corkage fee for wines you purchased town! The veggie risotto was delicious (limited veggie menu items). They comped our birthday boy with a dessert! (chocolate lava flow, hot and delicious!)

As you walk down the street in Murphys we discovered this great restaurant. They cook the food in a small kitchen but it is one of the best restaurants in Murphys Once you order be prepared for the food to come in less than 5 minutes.. outstanding service

The owner is pro Marijuana. You decide if you want to frequent this place. Not worthy to eat here. My food was Luke warm when served.

Really nice breakfasts. Have never ordered anything here that hasn't been good. Cute little place with a couple of tables on the sidewalk. If you have your dog with you, this is perfect. Nice staff, fast and efficient.

We were so happy we found this place for breakfast! Their breakfast burritos were delicious and they had a bacon waffle that was a very rich treat. Really cool spot downtown.

Stopped by here on our way to Ironstone Vineyards. The food was good and arrived quickly. Staff was polite but not very friendly. Not rude, just serious I guess....The restaurant was clean and modern. Not sure if I'd go back. I'm not in Murphys often so I might explore other restaurants when I'm out there just for variety.

Thank Dora N
