EXACTLY what an Irish Pub should be! Murphy's has it's own parking lot, and is close enough to the beach to be an easy walk.
Good food and service. Will go back next time I am at Virginia Beach
Over this past weekend in VA Beach, I visited Murphy's 3 separate times as I just couldn't seem to stay away. I would agree with some other reviews that the interior is a bit dated but it has personality and the service that we received from Mike (Bartender) was excellent and personal. Selection of Irish beers on tap and Manger's cider pleased both my wife and I. Also, the mixed drinks were raved about by my father and mother in law. The live band on Saturday night was surprising for an Irish bar as they were a very talented country cover band (I'm a huge country music fan) and the diverse crowd were enjoying the atmosphere. My party, which was also very diverse in ages and tastes, all had a great time. As mentioned in other reviews, the food was good, especially the tuna bites and the Bangers and mash were respectable.
It was good, but sit outside. The inside felt very dated. The outside was more our style.
I got the Turkey Wrap and the other three folks I was with got the Fish and Chips. Everything was good. No complaints. The food was good. The service was ok. When you sit outside the bartender has to run the tables and the bar, which seemed like a lot of work.
The greatest place to drink on Virginia Beach, Mike the bartender is the only bartender with wit,personality,,and superior intelligence.He belongs on the Main Bar, put all those kids out on the terrace where they can babysit all those kids.
I have visited for brunch, lunch and dinner, and also sometimes just for drinks. The bartenders and waitstaff have always been polite and helpful. This bar is an excellent Irish pub with top of the line waitstaff and barkeeps. I have been waited on by Sarah numerous times and her service, in my opinion, is second to none.
We had some beers and wings here on a Saturday afternoon, the service was good and the wings tasty. They have a wood burning fireplace in the middle of the place. Plenty of T.V.'s with the games on. We will return
I go here at least once a week, more in the summer. It's a great locals hangout, the food is great, the atmosphere is dim and relaxing. Great music. Awesome people. The bartenders are all great, but Ashely is my personal favorite. Best pub in the area, no doubt about it. Infact, I think Ill go for a pint now!
