  1. too late, but my friend always hits the Murphy's Hotel when he's in town. Says he's always had good food there.

    "When I go to Murphy's I eat at the "Murphy's Hotel" and have always had good luck. Opened in the 1860's; I have a drink at there bar which is also very cool.

    Tell them not to miss the "Ironstone Winery" which is just down the road. It is a must see ! "

        Just tried a few places this weekend, all on Main St. in Murphys - Grounds and it's more casual sister restaurant Firewood were great. Alchemy also had some interesting options, large portions. Murphys Grille had a bit more standard fare. Aria Bakery had some pretty good baked goods.
