At Mrs. Murphy & Sons Irish Bistro the Murphy family offers updated takes on classic Irish comfort food served with a well curated selection of craft beer, approachable wines, and cocktails. A 30 seat victorian style bar imported from Ireland is a centerpiece of the pub area, while private dining rooms upstairs are perfect hosting showers, weddings, meetings, or celebrations for every occasion.

"Went on a Friday night for a family birthday celebration. Unfortunately, we were seated in the bar. There was a band playing Irish music there- they sounded great, but made it impossible to talk, even to the person seated next to you. Food and drinks were terrific, and the server was delightful. We just weren't expecting the crazy level of noise. I'd mentioned in my reservation that we had a baby with us, so wish the restaurant would've taken this into consideration when seating us."

"We needed a cool place to eat prior to seeing a show at the Windy City Playhouse. My husband likes a good pub, so we thought we would try this and WOW! What fun! Great menu, great drinks, great time! It was a week night and not crowded at all. It's a gem that should be visited by all!"

"Had never been to Mrs. Murphy's before so it was a bit of a risk to make our first time try Easter Brunch. However, we'd heard good things and they all turned out to b true. The array of food choices was spectacular and everyone in our group of five left happy and satisfied. I want to go back for the ribs sometime since they were specifically recommended but not available at the Easter buffet brunch.gary"

"Spectacular food for the Easter Buffet- roast beef and au jus cooked to perfection and the hash brown casserole was awesome. Those two were the standouts among about 20 other great selections. Hats off to the chefs!! Great value as well."

"We were there on St. Patrick's Day and they were busy but our service was terrible. The corn beef looked processed and was not very good. The limited menu for St. Patrick's Day only had one option for the vegetarian in our group (there was no mention on the website about a special menu for St. Patrick's Day)."

"For 45 minutes we were told it was going to be a few minutes, they kept checking on the table. We waited patiently. Other parties were being seated. They told us to wait by elevator so we could be taken up to the dining room. No one came to get us. We asked again and were told they checking on the table, again. They gave our table away and refused to tell us. I have never experience this type of service."

"When we were first introduced to Mrs. Murphy - Jeanne Carlson
was the executive chef. She was innovative and used high quality
ingredients like Jail Island and Loch Duart fish. She created the Guinness chocolate sauce and award winning rib sauce. She is no longer here.
The current battered fish is not award winning or gourmet, like hers was. Owen and Engine has a better beer batter. Some of the entree prices have decreased. It all depends what the bistro is aiming for. Since we value food preparation more than beer/ alcohol, our priorities may be different than the beer focused customer. The new chef has had time to
establish his goals and style. We will need to search for another upscale modern Irish food bistro in Chicago area since we have experienced some culinary disappointment.

"Went on a saturday night and they had Irish music from 8-10pm. Great sandwiches and tremendous Guinness Beef Stew. At 10pm when the music stopped the place did kind of die a bit and many diners left. Seemed too early for the music to stop at 10pm on a Saturday night, but that's their decision."
