Stopped in prior to a meeting. Shared a salad with my wife and had sandwiches. Quick service and good food. Sort of a sports bar in a college town but for us the place was just right

We came here on a Friday night. The place was almost empty (while a bar down the street was packed). That should have been our first clue.

Our server was perfectly friendly and quick with our drink orders. The problem was in the kitchen. We were one of perhaps half a dozen tables that night. I ordered fish and chips, and my girlfriend ordered a tomato and basil salad. It took well over an hour for us to get our food. Other customers were becoming visibly annoyed. When we asked our server about why we had such a long wait, her response was that she didn't know and that the chef was being nasty. We felt bad for her.

On such a quiet night, there was no excuse for taking over an hour to fill an order that included exactly ONE cooked entree. One competent, properly-prepped line cook could have put our meals together in 15 minutes.

I suppose this place is fine if you just want a drink. But if you want to eat, I'd suggest going elsewhere. Never going back.

I stopped into Murphy's today after a walk around town and wished to outside to take in the towns atmosphere. Murphy's have 2 picnic settings with umbrellas out the front facing Main Street (which seems to be very rare in. New Paltz). The beer was cold and the burger was cooked just right. The service was great.

Clean, comfy bar on New Paltz's main drag. Bartenders were very friendly, remembered who we -- total outta-towner strangers -- were upon our return visit. Lots of specials, and an unbeatable price on pitchers. Apparently gets cuckoo with the collegiate set late-night on the weekends, but boring oldsters like us cleared out early enough to avoid that scene.

Went here with a group of people after hiking at Mohonk Preserve. We weren't expecting much, but the burgers were decent and the waitstaff was friendly.
