    Murray's never disappoints. This is the quintessential, classic retro vibe steak house in Minneapolis. Great food, great atmosphere, and impeccable service. There are less expensive and more expensive steak houses around. None combine the history and throw back experience of this Minneapolis legendary restaurant. One can envision the rat pack hanging out at Murray's. For good rerasons, it's that cool. Go for dinner, but go early and stop in the bar for one of the best happy hours in town - 5:00pm to 6:00pm - you wan't regret it.

    Our waiter had a refreshing personality and was on top of his game the entire evening. The lobster tail is worth every nickel. It was presented without the shell and was 16 oz. unlike most restaurants that serve them in the shell so you can spend time cracking them open and making a mess to get at 5 oz. The bill was not cheap, but I didn't care, with Biden gas prices it seemed reasonable.

    Great Father’s Day visit. Cozy atmosphere. Only thing to note-just too low of lighting for elderly eyes. Food was amazing! Shrimp cocktail, prime rib, loaded hash browns& raspberry pie were all show stoppers. We look forward to returning!

    Dennis was our server and he was great! Really good steaks and the French Onion Soup was definitely something to write home about. Scalloped potatoes were great. For desert don't miss the Raspberry Pie, it was amazing. Terrific wine list, we had a 2018 Frogs Leap Cab and it was delicious. Not bashful about the price, but I feel like we got what we paid for.

    We celebrated my birthday last night at Murray's before going to a show. Food was excellent, but the server was terrible, and that brought down the experience. He never was friendly, wasn't very attentive. After dinner, he brought the complimentary dessert for me, and took off before asking if the other guests might want dessert, or if any of us wanted coffee. He then stayed gone, so that I had to go to the maitre d to get our bill so that we could make the show on time. So the meal ended on a real down note. I've eaten at Murrays many times over the years, but the last 2 times the service has been so awful, I'll likely find somewhere else to go downtown. At least for celebrations.

    I will definitely be back! Our waitress was amazing and got my partner a new steak when she saw that his was medium/well when he ordered medium rare. The arancini was just okay, but the poblano creamed corn and mushrooms are incredible. The raspberry pie is absolutely fantastic... I'm still thinking about it the next day.

    We have loved Murrays for years. It is a special treat for birthdays and anniversaries or when wanting a special place to go with business clients and out-of-town guests. It never disappoints. Last night was for my birthday and everything was spot on. The service was great! Also, the French onion soup was delicious, the butter knife steak for two was delicious, the corn poblano side was fantastic, and they brought a free birthday dessert. Love having the valet in front to drop off the car. It always comes back so quickly at the end too. What's not to rave over with Murrays?

    Murray's is an old-school steakhouse in the best sense of the term. Outstanding steaks - all of our party had theirs cooked perfectly; great sides, especially the mushrooms and string beans, and a delicious garlic toast to start the meal. Steaks are dry-aged and seasoned to give full flavor - leave your A-1 sauce home, you won't need it. Will definitely go back to Murray's the next time I am in Minneapolis.
