Every time I am in Murphys I make sure I have at least one meal at Grounds, usually breakfast. Simple menu with fresh ingredients. Reasonably priced. Friendly and attentive staff. Back room is best for dining but also have a nice patio.

The food, particularly considering the quality, was reasonably priced. The service was prompt and attentive. Although we sat inside in the back room, there was a lovely patio off the room, away from the street.

sandwiches ok, not bad, service ok, not real attentive. Bread was very fresh on sandwiches. Salad very plain, lettuce and chopped tomato. sweet potato fries pretty good.

We were not pleased with our food. The ribs just did not taste good. Not sure why but some spice I didn't like. We tried the Brussels sprout appetizer which was over salted.

My wife and I, along with at least 70 others on a recent charity car rally, had dinner at Grounds. The server raved about the BBQ ribs. Three of us at our table of six ordered them because of her recommendation. They weren't really BBQ'd,...More
