    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    This was a fun place to be. They had good food at a good price, Hard to find in VA beach area. They also had parking and entertainment. The wait staff was very pleasant.

    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.

    The event coordinator was GREAT, and they made it an excellent experience putting their finest bartender on the job. The snacks were awesome, and everyone had a great time!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
