The wait was more than we thought, but worth it. The staff takes as much time as needed to make sure you are ok.The food was amazing and the wine server really knew how to educate us on the proper wine selection with our meal.

Location: Right off of the street and in the same plaza as Yogli Mogli. Parking is a bit tight and they do not offer much parking space, so I recommend finding a spot on the side of the street and then walking.
Atmosphere: My friend and I sat on the patio, which was nice and offered views onto the street. It also has a warm and rustic vibe. When you first walk into the restaurant I was greeted by a very friendly host who asked if we wanted to either sit inside or outside. He then led us to our table which was very clean and simple. The inside of the restaurant features a wall of wine options that you can choose from and also features desserts that I think you can pick up for togo. Murphy’s has a very casual laid back atmosphere that transports you to a Cali winery.
Food/Beverages: We ordered the mimosas which were good because how can you really butcher a mimosa (juice & champagne)? I ordered the quinoa squash with the artichokes as an appetizer and a side of their mac and cheese. My lovely friend ordered their special, which was grilled scallops over angel hair pasta and tossed in a pesto sauce. The artichokes were very good because they were grilled and served with a delicious lemon aioli of some sort. I LOVE artichokes and boy, they did this artichoke justice. The quinoa squash was also delicious and perfectly seasoned. Many places usually offer bland vegetable entrees, but Murphy’s seasoned this entree to perfection. It was surprisingly good. The thing that stole my heart was actually the mac and cheese. I love mac and cheese and this was some good ole mac and cheese. I think they used some sort of white cheddar and truffle oil, which complemented the cheese very nicely. I also loved the fact that they used a thicker type of pasta in order to catch every drop of their delicious cheese sauce. If you do not thick that the shape of the pasta affects how a dish tastes, then you my friend need to try their mac and cheese. It was goooooood. My friend’s scallop pesto pasta was also very flavorful, light and filling. The pesto sauce was divine and she raved about the perfection that the scallops were cooked to.
Service: Our server was very attentive to us and made sure that we had everything we needed.
Overall: Murphy’s is a great place for a unique spin on traditional american food. Everything was seasoned to my liking and I will definitely be back to try some of their other offerings. Parking is a bit of a pain, but a bit of walking is not all that bad. I am surprised that I haven’t heard about this gem in Virginia Highland’s until now.

I love love love Murphys! It is a quaint cozy restaurant in Virginia highlands. I am a sucker for complimentary bread and theirs is delish! I almost always gets the roasted chicken because it simply amazing. The brisket is also very good. Their menu is seasonal but these two dishes seem to always be on the menu. I highlight recommend Murphys if you're in the highlands.

Great atmosphere, and the service was excellent. The braised brisket was amazing, as was the truffle mac and cheese.

Always a delicious brunch or lunch spot. They have an adorable little patio that looks out over the Highlands if you can get a spot - if not, the interior bistro-style space is also cute! It's definitely a VaHi staple.

Phenomenal food and service! Sunday brunch is the best. Get there early or make reservations to avoid long wait times- although it is worth the wait.

We have been regulars here since 1985. The food is always great and the service is consistently great. The kids menu is wonderful - real, tasty food at good prices. And they are polite to the children.

Have visited Murphy's on many occasions. The food is good and the service is pleasant. Would recommend to others. Need more on the southside.
