I was visiting Worcester on Business for the week and popped into Funky Murphy's for a couple of beers and to watch some NFL. Great atmosphere and the Nachos and Buffalo wings were fantastic. Next time I am back in Worcester I will visit again.

I went here on a ladies night out as this place was recommended to us. We were not impressed. It actually kind of reminded me of a dive bar. There was a bar area in front with windows open to the street but as we had a group of 6, we sat in the dining area in the back. It... More

I visited here for lunch today with my granddaughter. The service was very slow and there were only a handful of customers. It was nice to sit by the open windows next to Shrewsbury Street. Good summertime atmosphere, just slow service. The food was ok. Nothing special but then again, it's a pub.

Stopped by for lunch, the front was open so we were able to sit inside to get a bit of shade but it was like sitting out on the patio area. Service was average. The buffalo chicken balls appetizer was really flavorful. The lunches came out and were good proportions. My husband had the red sangri and I had the... More

I stopped in for lunch with one other person. We both had Greek salads ($9.95) which were very good loaded with banana peppers and feta. Having eat here a couple of times, I can say the food is always good but the service is usually lacking (slow and could be more attentive). On this visit, there were only 6-7 people... More

Second time here this year and again it was for the "$7 Queen Cut or $8.50 King Cut" on Tuesday night (also offered Saturday night). Came with vegetables and mashed potatoes and all au-jus you wanted. Prime Rib was not too fatty and cooked perfectly. We both had the smaller cut and ended up with some for a sandwich for... More

Great drinks and if you have ever had Guinness in a bar in Ireland you will find it poured and taste the same here. A lot of my friends who joined me said it was the best they have drank in USA. Had a Waldorf salad with steak. Nice piece of meat cooked to temperature with a substantial salad. Pretty... More

Went here with friends for dinner on Tuesday because it is Prime Rib Buy One get one Free nite. We all had the Queen Cut Prime with potato and vegetable. The Prime Rib was cooked to correct temperature for each of one us. The meat was tender and not very fatty like prime rib at many other restaurants. We all... More
