Murphy's has been a mainstay in Boulder for many years and while the decor evolves over the years the food remains top notch. Something for everyone, but my personal favorite will likely always be the meatloaf.
I am giving this eatery 2 stars because Jordan the bar guy gave us a free meal because we complained about the steak tasting rancid. The Mexican waitress was very poor and is not cut out for that type of work. She had an attitude and did not want or even grasped good customer service. We ordered salads and the steak was bad smelling and seemed to be going bad. When we complained we were told it smelled "like steak" to the staff. Why would we make that up? we were not trying to get a free meal, but we had to point it out. My friend could not eat it and did not eat it. That was my first time there and my last. It's sad as the decor is nice and I loved the big glass windows.But bad service and bad food are not something that will be tolerated by me. We heard the cook, a young man with blonde hair make some annoyed sound when the waitress loudly told him what we said about the meat. Just a very bad experience and I wish we had not gone out.
Late night happy hour to was on point. Came to enjoy a beer with a friend to wrap up the night, and ended up enjoying 3 each, as well as some guacamole and fried pickles. It was a good decision.
The other two Murphys are better, with the tap house being the pick of the bunch.
I'm only giving two stars because the food was absolutely amazing. We waited at the front for several minutes before anyone seated us along well th another party waiting to be seated, three different people came to and from the table yet somehow we still had to wait to even put our order in for drinks. When we sat down at the table it was dirty. Nobody bussed our table even though several times we saw multiple servers walked by look at the dirty dishes on our table and then continue. None of the servers were personable and they all looked annoyed. This was our first experience at Murphy's and we definitely won't be coming back. I'm still sitting here waiting for our tab. Not to mention, there's absolutely no one else in the room. See photo. There is a server talking at a table next to us. We have been here for 2 hours. We finished eating half an hour ago. We will not be coming back. If you don't want to do your job, get a new one.
