Have eaten here twice now and both times VERY pleasantly surprised by portion sizes and good solid tasty meals! Some of the most balanced Clam Chowder I've ever had...not too thick (very familiar with gravy like texture from too many hours in the steam table) and perfect mix of clams and small bites of potato/onion! Will add this spot as... More

My friend and I stopped in here because my truck was being repaired at a near shop. We both ordered the Friday night prime rib special. Very disappointed. The meat was overly fatty even for a prime rib. And both our meals were underdone. Sent back and still came back underdone. I travel a lot so I have a bit... More

Nice atmosphere. Food is mundane and overpriced. Never had a bad meal in the establishment, but never had a memorable meal either. The few times I've eaten there I've walked away thinking I won't eat there again and haven't since.

Hi Phil, We are glad to hear that you enjoy our atmosphere. We are disappointed to hear that our dishes didn’t wow you. We are a little shocked to hear that as we typically receive rave reviews about our dishes. We are always more than happy to remake a dish if our guest isn’t satisfied with it. We will certainly...

My wife and I are so grateful to have Murphy's Grill right here in Dallas. The decor is totally Northwest, all done in greens and browns with etched glass scenes of our area. We also appreciate the specials and the always friendly, professional service. It is wonderful to have a local restaurant with such an eclectic menu. You can always... More

Went here for a business lunch and it didn't disappoint. Had the Halibut fish and chips. It was cooked and prepared perfectly. It was served with an appropriate amount of fries as well.

We were getting in late to visit our daughter and decided to stop for dinner before the visit. Had passed Murphy’s on past visits and decided to give it a try. First impression was one of the restaurant and restrooms being very clean and well-kept. We were quickly seated and as no specials were offered, we ordered directly from the... More
