Murphy's of DC
Murphy's of DC is an energetic pub that offers a variety of settings, each with its own style. The outdoor patio is always crowded. Inside, a cozy room has a fireplace, bar and comfortable seating and the main area is set up for live music, which is the draw on Thursday through Sunday nights. The menu is full of Irish classics, including fish and chips, meat pies and Irish stew. There are also the standard burgers and sandwiches.
Please do yourself a favor and stay away. I visit DC often and since I was staying in a hotel closeby, this restaurant was convenient. However, I sorely regretted it. I was subjected to a very unpleasant waiter and was overcharged for my dinner. There was a very large cockroach in the hallway leading to the men's room. I generally would not complain, but enough was enough. I asked to speak to the manager. His unpleasantness was remarkable. He very rudely told me to never show my face again........a month later, I found my credit card was charged for double the bill (which was overcharged to start). Please do yourself a favor and spare yourself this anxiety.
Great place, though one side of the pub is far underused. This would be a great destination for soccer and/or Irish sports, but it seems the management is more concerned with the lowest common denominator than establishing itself as a "place to be." Too bad there's no advertising, because Murphy's could become just that.
Food is excellent. Tim, the head cook, is a cajun food expert, though the rest of the menu is fantastic, as well. Wander in on Saturday nights and say Hi to PJ, the bartender. He's a fine, strapping young lad who knows how to treat his customers.
Check out Murphy's - it's definitely worth a shot.
