Good place to share with friends and family. Excellent Friday fish dinners and the best wings in Elmira. The friendly staff provides for a fun dinning experience. The full bar has a wide selection of beverages. Joe, the owner is always saying hello to everyone when he is not busy cooking.

I've lived close to Bernie Murray's most of my life. I LOVE their wings and their salads are soooo huge and good. The only thing is sometimes the servers are kind of rude.

They had a good variety of food to choose from. Everything was delicious. We had salad, hamburgers. The only draw back was they only accept cash for payment. But they have an ATM to help.

After at least twenty minutes of apparently being invisible and another 10-15 minutes without even coming back with our drinks, we decided to exit the establishment before we even ordered our meal. Very disappointing service.

Bernie Murray's suffered a fire last year, but they've rebuilt and are looking great!! Good food, beautiful wooden bar, friendly staff. Bernie Murray's is a part of going to or coming from all kinds of sporting and school events on the Southside of Elmira, and I hope it always will be!
