    I always go here for their beef stew, and the atmosphere, especially for live music, is always fun. Hands down the best beef stew in town with homemade soda bread to boot. Great lunch specials as well

    1/2 lb 1/2 price Angus burger that was awesome paired with top shelf Woodford bourbon. Great atmosphere, friendly/attentive staff w/ plenty of sports on multiple screens. Wonderful dining at VA Beach

    We had some beers and wings here on a Saturday afternoon, the service was good and the wings tasty. They have a wood burning fireplace in the middle of the place. Plenty of T.V.'s with the games on.

    It's a great locals hangout, the food is great, the atmosphere is dim and relaxing. Great music. Awesome people. The bartenders are all great, but Ashely is my personal favorite. Best pub in the area

    The food was amazing and they even have outdoor seating with a bar. And the Beer just kept on coming and it all tasted great. I will definitely be back when the next soccer game is going on.

    We were looking for a place for dinner and decided to give Murphy's a try. Really a neat place; great decor, live Irish music, great beer, and pretty good food. Can't beat it for the prices.

    We ate here twice while on vaca - surprisingly affordable for being close to the beach - the food was good and the atmosphere was a pub.quieter in the day rowdy after 10 pm. We'll definitely go again.

    Sat at the outside bar it was nice, a great place to hang out with friends and people watch. The beers were cold and the service was typical. Had a great time and can't wait to go back.

    I have visited for brunch, lunch and dinner, and also sometimes just for drinks. The bartenders and waitstaff have always been polite and helpful. This bar is an excellent Irish pub.

    Came here on a cold day. They have a huge wood burning fireplace inside, warmed me up real quick and after a few beverages I had forgotten all about the icy weather outside.

    Great bands such as Cheap Thrill - good bar food. Good Sunday brunch and $2 beers. The bartenders are great and quick. The outdoor bar is wonderful all year long.

    Terrific, reasonably priced meal. My wife had the Irish stew (made with beef, not lamb), good & filling. I'm not a fish & chips expert, but these were the best I've had.

    This was my 1st visit and I have lived here my entire life. Shame on me. The reuben is delicious and if all the waitresses are like Renee this a blessed restaurant.

    Good beer and food, both reasonably priced. Atmosphere inside is vibrant, with sports showing on screens on most walls - so you can keep up with the game.

    Overall a ver good experience. Wait staff attentive, food was good, portions were not gigantic. Live entertainment. I would go back again. For a sports bar, I would consider it excellent.

    This is a great place to go to an authentic Irish pub in the Hampton Roads area. It's the only place I know of locally where the Irish gather on a regular basis.

    Good food, fast/friendly service, plenty of options for different tastes, and decent prices especially considering the nearly beachfront location.

    Murphy's was one of our last stops on our bar crawl and it was a decent end to the night. The food was decent, live music was good, and the bar was really clean.

    As a former Mayor of Murphy's, and a reliable patron, I'd like to go on the record and state that Timothy Edward Breen(Ned) is not in fact cheating. Captain Jim fully endorses him...Cheers!

    EXACTLY what an Irish Pub should be! Murphy's has it's own parking lot, and is close enough to the beach to be an easy walk.

    Obviously I've been here 2 nights straight so I like the Irish pub. Can't help noticing and am bothered by the fact the staff seems rushed & and forgetful.
