I've been here numerous times, and the food is always delicious. The crab cakes are soft and moist, the curry chicken is wonderful, I can go on. Service is excellent as well. It's my go to spot when in the area. I definitely recommend.

We heard a few songs from the band ( the aforementioned gentlemen in kilts) before calling it a night. Maybe it was Alexandria's large tourist population, but there was no "blending in" needed as is so often the case when out-of-towners

I have been coming to Murphy's for about 8 years now for the Patriots games and it is always a great time. Prices are good, food is awesome and the staff is awesome. Definitely the best and most energetic fan club in the DC area by far.

the beer was good, the bartender attentive, and the place was "cool" and welcoming. I thought the homage to police and firefighters on the bar pretty touching and the rest of the decor was typical pub themed ;) (always a plus in my book).

Not just a bar: Murphy's is not just a night out at a bar. With the music, the sing-a-longs and the crowd it ends up being an event every weekend night. Always a good time!

This is a fun, fun bar! Lots of great beer on tap and good food. Every time I've been in there's been a guitar singer with lots of sing alongs and interaction. Way too much fun! Next time in Alexandria, I'll definitely stop back in.\r
