In the area with a group. Was looking for a place for lunch. Just happened to spot Murphy's so we went in for a Smithwicks. While there we decided to order a small pizza. The bartender was very gracious and said we could add whatever we wanted on it. It would have been nice to have Irish music playing and... More

First of all...if there is live music...It is SUPER loud. For some reason folks sometimes don't expect that...not sure why, but I am just telling you, it is loud. The servers were few and a bit slow, so we just opened a tab at the bar and got our drinks ourselves. It was faster and easier. We didn't eat but... More

I went here with sister and was shocked at how good the pizza was at this spot. They have a pool table, fooseball, & darts. Cool staff and a chill spot overall.

We were told to go here to try out there pizza. We went in and sat at the bar waiting for one of the bartenders to serve us. Another person came in after us and was served before we were even acknowledged. Finally one guy spoke to us and since it was already after 1am they were not serving food... More

Murphy's is the perfect Irish Pub on Galveston. Plenty of beers to chose from. Fun is better than one would anticipate from this pub, and staff is right and sassy. Just what you expect from an Irish pub. Great place for St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!!

We met a couple of friends in Galveston and went for drinks to Murphy's. Not fancy, but a good,old fashion pub. The Strand was a bit rainy and very windy the night we were there so not able to enjoy everything it had to offer but the drinks made up for that.

Great white pizza, nice beer selection, but sometimes a little loud. Popular with locals and college crowd. BUT the pizza is worth the trip!

Perfect old pub atmosphere! Great place to drink beer relax and enjoy. They do serve food but we didn't eat. No frills, just Irish pub perfection!

Skip this place. Too many other friendly places to choose from. Staff is slow and rude. Pizza is fair but over priced. Another patron (did not know him) asked us for the rest of our pizza then followed us outside to ask us to bring him to a different bar. Will not return.

Thank Bill T
