We decided to check out Murphy's, since we would no longer be choking from cig smoke. They've always been able to pour a great Guinness...the problem is the food. One person in our party ordered a Reuben. There were 2...count them...two, thin pieces of corned beef on the sandwich. Completely lame for, a: a Reuben, and b: for around $9. The fries were completely soggy. You might expect that to be the case late at night, as Murphy's has never been too hip at hot oil, but this was at 6:00. We won't go back. When you have indifferent food, and sullen management, who needs to go, when you have other businesses, such as Bad Albert's in old Ballard with great food, and a very friendly atmosphere.
