    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Apparently Sunday night is not the night to go. They were out of all the seafood except shrimp, plus the Jameson steak, and at least four other entrees. Very disappointed.

    Not worth the 60.00 tab for two people. Steak overdone, broccoli undercooked and cold, potato tasted old and was hard... Not usually so picky but the food was bad... Nice atmosphere though.
