I'm a Matt Murphy's fan and enjoyed a late dinner there over the weekend with a friend who'd never been. It was a summer Saturday night and Brookline Village seemed strangely quiet. However, inside Matt Murphy's, there was buzz and nearly every table taken. I...More

Free Oyster Monday's during happy hour. That's all I gotta say. It's a trendy place with interesting drinks and some really good dishes. Beware though that it is cash only.

Matt Murphy's is a semi-Irish pub serving semi-Irish, semi-gourmet food. The people are nice and welcoming, and the prices, if not cheap, are certainly not elevated. The 5-7 Monday free oyster special is a winner, and can draw crowds when the weather's decent; in bad...More

My family and I stopped here for lunch. When we walked in the Pub was fairly empty. There was only one waiter who also acted as the bar tender and the bus person. We placed our order and waited and waited and waited. Food was...More
