Great Irish pub with good selection of Irish/Domestic beers on tap. Good food at a reasonable price. What makes Murphy's special is the staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. A must place to visit when in Virginia Beach.

Great location, great decor, friendly wait staff. Needing improvement, the bar. I ordered an Irish whiskey with one ice cube. When the waitress delivered it she acknowledged the bar tendered over did the ice. My drink was served over a glass full of crushed ice. She took it back, and a few minutes later the bar tender strained the whiskey... More

Typical beach pub with an Irish theme. Wasn't busy so the service was good. Had fish and chips with a beer. The fish was a bit overdone but tasty. Enjoyed the IPA lager. A friendly place with indoor/patio seating.

We seem to find Irish Pub grub everywhere we go and finding Murphy's didn't disappoint! Hubby had the largest serving of corned beef & cabbage anywhere. Plus big chunk carrots, potatoes and bread (seemed homemade but not traditional soda bread as claimed). Nice patio with fire tables. Dog friendly.

We found the food here very good. Stopped on our way home from Florida and glad we did. My Irish Reuben was excellent, as were the fries that came with it. Definitely would reorder. My wife ordered the fish tacos which she also felt were exceptional. Turned out the fish they used was chunks of tuna. Good job! Now comes... More
