Great location, great decor, friendly wait staff. Needing improvement, the bar. I ordered an Irish whiskey with one ice cube. When the waitress delivered it she acknowledged the bar tendered over did the ice. My drink was served over a glass full of crushed ice. She took it back, and a few minutes later the bar tender strained the whiskey... More

Typical beach pub with an Irish theme. Wasn't busy so the service was good. Had fish and chips with a beer. The fish was a bit overdone but tasty. Enjoyed the IPA lager. A friendly place with indoor/patio seating.

We seem to find Irish Pub grub everywhere we go and finding Murphy's didn't disappoint! Hubby had the largest serving of corned beef & cabbage anywhere. Plus big chunk carrots, potatoes and bread (seemed homemade but not traditional soda bread as claimed). Nice patio with fire tables. Dog friendly.

We found the food here very good. Stopped on our way home from Florida and glad we did. My Irish Reuben was excellent, as were the fries that came with it. Definitely would reorder. My wife ordered the fish tacos which she also felt were exceptional. Turned out the fish they used was chunks of tuna. Good job! Now comes... More

We were looking for a place similar to McGuire's in Destin FL . There was no comparison in atmosphere or food. We were there too early to experience live music. We had a good steak which was cooked as requested , an average chicken sandwich, and good fish and chips.

My husband and I went here about 2 years ago and were not too impressed but we decided to give it another chance since it was close to out hotel. We came here for dinner and although our server was pleasant the service was extremely lacking. First off we order two appetizers but the one appetizer they were out of... More

Had not been here in forever and ordered the potato skins and wings. The potato skins were are the best I ever had. Very convenient oceanfront location. Oh, and wings were good too. I just can't do hot!
