If I lived here, this is where I would hang out. We were there twice, one for dinner (think appies) and once for drinks, Wonderful staff, very friendly and just a great hang out place. Tell them you want a Captain Jack, the bartender has been schooled!

Great place for nice atmosphere, good food, and good beer. We had the pizza and thought it was excellent. And we're very picky about pizza!

The atmosphere is great. The food is awesome. The menu selection is fantastic. We just loved this place. Its a convenient location, on the harbor, and walking distances to and from most places. Don't miss out on this pub!

We were exploring Castine on Labor Day and wandered into Danny Murphy's. There was a good mix of locals and tourists. The service was good and the food menu was typical for an Irish Pub.

Maybe there's a Danny and maybe he's Irish but, to me, this seemed like a very average pizza joint masquerading as an Irish pub.
