Murphy's Restaurant & Pub
Serving traditional rib-sticking, appetite-pleasing, affordable food for almost 30 years, Murphy's sits in downtown Boone, NC in a historic building making history of its own. Housed in the former Watauga Democrat Newspaper Building, the rustic framework of this brick and hardwood structure welcomes folks to sit, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of a cool downtown area.
Parking is available in our back lot area and on King and Queen streets. Please do not park in the lot beside our restaurant as it is not available to our customers.
Founded by Erik and Steve Larson and Tom Phillips in a beautiful location on Hwy 105 in Boone (now the site of the Comfort Suites and Troy's Diner), Murphy's has always been a family affair with the Larson parents being a fixture of the restaurant for many years. Erik and Steve's father is a medal winning senior athlete!
Murphy's moved to its current location over 15 years ago and has been a prime spot for great food and late night music (21 and over only- after 10 PM) in downtown ever since. After 30 years of serving the High Country, Murphy's has new ownership and more information on the new Murphy's generation will be forthcoming!
Come on in and join in the fun. No reservation required!
Take a bit of Murphy's home with you. Ask your friendly server or bar staff about our patron-designed t-shirts. New T-shirts and design on the way!
"The Reserve" (downstairs of our restaurant) is now available for your private party and small meeting needs (45 people or less). Murphy's offers a unique entertaining space that can provide food, fun, and festivities for a very nice price. Contact us at 828-264-5117!
