I was there the morning after an election, when the diner and its adjacent Taproom were still being straightened up after Election Night parties and media coverage. That made no difference to the quick and friendly service I received. The coffee was fresh and the food was fine.

We were working set up at the arena across the street and a bunch of us went in for lunch. A big bunch. they handled our group quite well. Most had various burgers, i had an omelet that was quite good. I'm told that this place can fill up prior to events at the arena, but for lunch it was... More

I work nearby and have dined at Murphy's often, usually for lunch. My department had a breakfast meeting here and I ordered the huevos rancheros, one of my favorites. It is really hard to screw up breakfast at a diner, but somehow they did on this visit. The huevos had no spice or heat and it was one of the... More

Buffalo Chicken should speak up but this one barely whispers heat, though the flavor was very good. The Onion Rings have a floury flavor and were definitely below average, but the Fries were correctly cooked, non-oily and had a good flavor. The Shepherds Pie is a little above average, with good peas and onions but very skimpy on the meat.... More

I feel like the only way to describe my experience here is to joke about it because my experience was so awful. I don't even know where to begin. The place didn't have a hostess the morning I went there for breakfast. A man who I suspect is a manager greeted us after almost 5 minutes and then said he... More

This is the perfect place to have breakfast while in Manchester. I had one of the best eggs benedict ever! The portions are large and they have a fairly extensive menu. It is very popular and parking is minimal. I will definitely visit again next time I am in Manchester.

Service was impeccable, Sadie was awesome. Never let our coffee get below half full. Food was so-so. My husbands omelette was 'ok' and both our homefries were ice cold. Menu is GIGANTIC...tons of choices

Good waitress who took our order down correctly. Poor execution in the kitchen. Took 20+ minutes to deliver eggs and sausage for two. One order was wrong. When fixed, came back undercooked (sausage) and cold (eggs). Left 80% of that entire meal. Manager did not charge for that meal after investigation - which was the right thing to do. But... More

Three of stop by Murphy because of ease of handicap parking. We were served our drinks immediately, food orders about 5 minutes later. Forty minutes later our orders were still being made. Finally on waffle, 2 pancakes and an order of egg whites. Only one of us got hash potatoes so we shared. Our waitress explained that she was helping... More

My wife and I have been to Murphy's Diner on several occasions. We have mostly eaten there for breakfast but their entire menu is the great kind of food you'd expect from a quality diner. The service is always quick and friendly. The portions are always good and plenty. Murphy's is also a great spot to hit before or after... More
