Being a family new to the charlotte area, I purchased an entertainment coupon book (i.e. discount on shopping, restaurants, entertainment) and thought I would give Murphy's a try on 08/08/07. Keyed the address into the GPS and headed to the Pub. Once inside, I showed the waitress the coupon (5-8pm .25 cent wings) and placed our order for beverages and the wings. Shortly thereafter, the manager approached the table and stated that they could not honor the coupon! The manager said they would lose money at .25 cents a wing! I can?t imagine how ordering wings will cause a restaurant to go out of business . Not only would we have ordered the hors?dourves, we would have had beverages and entrees (probably $60-75 for the 3 of us). I have been to several restaurants in charlotte that advertised wings for .25 cents during happy hour and for daily specials, but those cheap, unethical, and rude murphy's staff would not honor the book even though the coupon book doesn't expire until Nov. 2007. I can't believe a restaurant would advertise with coupons to get customers in the door, and deceive them by not honoring the coupons (deplorable!). I have since talked with several friends/peers/acquaintances about the ordeal who stated that the food at Murphy's is very bland and very ill-prepared (especially the wings) compared to other restaurants and pubs in the area. Save your time and money by patronizing a restaurant that will promote good will and ethical treatment to the customer...murphy's is not the place for dining!
Pros: outdoor patio
Cons: bad management, unethical advertising, high crime area/location
