My husband and I stopped in to Murphy's Chophouse and had a late lunch. The appetizer was very good as was the soup. However, we both ordered steak, thinking that it would be excellent at a 'chophouse' but it was not. Most of the plates...More

This place needs to improve the furniture. Chairs were filthy and extremely stained. Large crack in the ceiling. Food was expensive and not worth the price...overly seasoned. Staff was very slow.
