Worst

While the steaks are good, they're not great. Unfortunately, the quality of food served here has deteriorated over the years. Pros: Quiet, Service Cons: Overpriced

Excellent every time! 8/5/2011

Best service in a long time 3/29/2011

Travis R- Proof that fine dining isn't just about the food, but atmosphere and service as well. Without any hesitation, he was eager to deliver our food promptly, correct an order when he found out a member of our party was allergic to wheat and recommend appropriate alternatives, and he never made us feel rushed even though we were the last ones out. 33% didn't seem enough, and I'm honestly kicking myself for not giving it to him in cash. Rereading this, this kind of sounfs like a fake post, except I know I'm not the only one impressed with his candor and professionalism. If he doesn't love his job, he's fooling a lot of people; he deserves good things in life, and definitely a raise. more

Awesome place! 10/8/2010

went there for a first date today, I love the space, it was feel right, the sirloin was perfect, the service was outsding, I'll bring people ther again. Thank you Murray! more

They were a tastey meal, thats for sure..... 9/15/2010

I had came here with two of threee of my sisters here once. We had a nice time and we ate good tender steak and laughed about memories and future goals in our life. Sarah she is 23 my younger sister, is planning on marrying her boyfriend of 3 years soon. This place is a good place to hangout and get a quality meal at the same time. more

MICE 6/14/2010

Went our for my anniversary thinking about great steak and good wine, only to see a mouse running the floor. The server seemed un-phased when notified. No apology no visit from a manger. Shame on Murray's. Pros: food is great Cons: Mice rule the place more

Best meal ever 1/15/2010

I've only eaten here once, but I'll remember it for a long time. Quite simply the best piece of meat I've ever eaten. I don't remember the sides, it was all eclipsed entirely by the steak. Every bite was fantastic, and although I had resolved to bring some home with me, I couldn't stop myself from finishing it off. I grant that some of my perceptions may have been due to their excellent wine selection. I also concede that some may find it quite salty. It's probably their seasoning blend that does it, so I doubt you could ask for a low-salt version of this. I frankly didn't notice the saltiness myself, not beyond the first bite in any case. more

Really Salty 11/10/2009

My first time visiting Murray's as many have said their steaks are better than Manny's. Having been to both now, I prefer Manny's over Murray's. I honestly want to give a good review for this restaurant as they have been in business for 63 yrs and I entirely support local Minneapolis restaurants but the over salted food really killed the experience for me. We ordered the butter knife steak for 3 and my other guest ordered a tenderloin. They were all entirely too salty. The garlic toast was entirely too salty as well.\r \r The meat was good quality; there is no denying that. At first, our server seemed really angry but lightened up towards the end of the night when I made jokes with her. They really do care about service; the manager walked over and asked us how everything was. I didn't have the heart to tell him that the food was too salty. Pros: Good Quality Meat, Service was Good Cons: Too Salty more

Place for our anniversary 9/24/2009

My husband and I have been going here for the last 4 years for our wedding anniversary...This last time we were a little dissapointed in our service and food! We ordered the huge appetizer and it was a little burnt....My steak wasn't that hot and it was too salty. Our server wasn't as friendly as she has been in the past! At these prices, I found too many problems! This year we decided to try Jax instead and compare the two. To be continued.... Pros: Great garlic toast Cons: Too Salty more

Just okay. 2/22/2009

We ordered the ""silver butter knife steak"" for two and were grossly disappointed. Our server brought it out, and as she was carving it at the table, she had the sniffles. Nothing worse than wanting to enjoy a great steak when all you can think about is your server sniffling over your food. The decor is outdated. Although some people don't like the ultra-tendy restaurants, or change, but this place was just outdated and could use a good remodel. Nothing special about this place makes us want to come back. Can get a better steak at Pittsburgh Blue, among other steakhouses. more

Pricey, but lives up to its billing so you should know what you're getting 5/30/2008

Murray's is an enjoyable way to experience an old-style steakhouse in Minneapolis. It lives up to its billing and doesn't have pretense to being anything beyond that, so if visit the website and read about it you should know what to expect. For my pre-Orpheum Theatre dinner on a weeknight it fit our expectations well.\r \r The service was excellent and the food was served promptly. The trademark Silverbutter Knife steaks are very large so my companion and I opted for the 8 oz Dinner Steaks instead. The steaks were prepared as ordered and delicious. I am not a frequent steak eater, but enjoy well prepared quality steak and got it here. The au gratin potatoes were quite good. I choose the tossed salad which was nothing special, but my companion got a beet salad, which was good and more distinctive. The dining room was not busy early on a Thursday night, but it seemed quite roomy so it could accomodate being filled.\r \r The main shortcoming I have seen mentioned in reviews here is that Murray's is overpriced. It definitely is expensive. Our dinner of two steak entrees, two glasses of wine, a glass of beer, no appetizers or dessert came to $92, before tip. It is not a daring or innovative restaurant and I could see that some would call it overpriced for what you get. I believe it is in the same price range as other more modern or trendy premier steakhouses such as Morton's or Manny's. Pros: Excellent service Cons: Pricey, limited options for steak more

The best 4/4/2008

\r My dad wanted to bring me to Murray's because as he says, 'anyone who lives in MN should try it once.' When we got there, the old charm brings you back right away. We were promptly greeted by our server who asked if we needed a few moments. Once we were set, we ordered; I had the filet of beef which I requested Bearnaise sauce, a baked potato and a caesar (per the previous reviews I had to try). My dad ordered the same but with the NY strip. The caesar was the best ever and the steak- one of the bests I have ever had. For dessert, we ordered coffee and the chocolate souffle which takes 11-15 minutes to make from scratch and worth the wait. Everything was wonderful and the price really not as bad once you also add in the restaurant it's self and what other restaurants change that don't have half the charm. I do have to say, our server Shane was also wonderful- the way service should be! Pros: The place it's self ! more

Sinfully delicious steak! 8/11/2007

I was starving for a good steak and looked through the Minneapolis-St.Paul magazine in my hotel room searching for a place to eat. Just around the corner from my hotel lies an unassuming exterior. Dressed in shorts and a t-shirt, I entered Murray's and was greeted by a friendly hostess in a dress and matre'd in a business suit. Even though I was dressed very casually, I was treated as if I was properly dressed. My waitress was extremely friendly and provided excellent service. I ordered the Caesar salad, New York strip steak and a baked potato. The lettuce in my Caesar was crispy and the dressing was extremely tasty. It was one of the best Caesar's I've ever had. Next came my steak. I kid you not, it was sinfully delicious. Seasoned and grilled to absolute perfection. The baked potato was standard - nothing special but I didn't expect anything more. The only disappointing thing for me was that I couldn't take home 1/2 the steak that I couldn't finish! Pros: The BEST steak and Caesar salad I've ever had. Cons: A little pricey but if you've done some homework you'll know that ahead of time. more

Iconic 7/16/2007

What can I say. Murray's is an Iconic restaurant that has been and still is 5-Star Excellent. Everytime we dine at Murray's we get friendly faces, 1st class service and Outstanding Food. Pros: Steak, Wine List, Consistent more

Favorite special celebration destination 11/10/2006

We have been going to Murray's for family celebrations for years, and they have never disappointed. The staff has always been nothing but kind, even when our then 10 year old tipped over his ice water onto the very thick tablecloth during my parents' 40th anniversary dinner. The garlic toast is to die for, and the filet mignon is incredible. If someone can top their steaks on their home grill, I would like to live in their neighborhood, and be invited to their parties! Pros: Superb food, ambience, people-watching Cons: Too far from our home to visit often more

Lobster Bisque 7/11/2005

This restaurant had the most amazing lobster bisque ever! You HAVE to try it! It is know for it's wonderful steak and the steak is wonderful but WOW. The bisque just melts in your mouth! I loved the piano and violin players. The place was beautiful with all those mirrors and chandeliers. The only thing I would change is make it bigger so that you can have more private dining. It's a little crowded. But my husband and I will definately go back. The service was wonderful. Our waiter even gave us a little history lesson on the restaurant. Pros: food, service, atmosphere Cons: too crowded more

1976 7/11/2005

I still recall the exquisite silver butterknife steak grilled rare to perfection and the most hospitable and prompt staff. Also the elegant setting and decor. I have eaten steaks all over the country, Florida to California, Washington State to Arizona in every conceivable place and price range and Murray's is in the top two. Now the top one as the original Chris n' Pitts in North Hollywood, CA is no longer in business as of two years ago. Murray's is the best. Pros: Exquisite Steak, Impeccable Service, Great Ambience Cons: $$$$ more

Lifetime Favorite! 6/5/2005

I've been eating at Murry's since my Dad brought me there in the early 50's. I've always been treated like a ""special guest"", even when they don't know who my Dad was. I no longer live in Mpls., but when I come for a visit, I always make a special trip to Murry's. It's like ""comming home"". Food, service, ambiance, memories--- all are special! Pros: character, food, memories Cons: none I can think of more

A Hamburger Experience 3/15/2005

If you haven't had a burger for lunch at Murray's, you don't know what you are missing. The 1/2 pound ground sirloin -almost wonder if they grind it on site - is pattied very thick (almost like a meatball) and seared with a slightly salty crust preserving every ounce of juice. Served on an onion bun, there is no need for adding cheese or any condiments, it's pure joy. You cannot miss this one! more

overpriced 3/13/2005

The silver butterknife steak was good, but not breathtaking, and definitely not worth the money. I've made better steaks on the grill. I am always willing to pay good money for good food, but I really didn't think it was worth it. The salad might as well of come from mcdonalds, there was nothing special about the potatoes, and the martinis weren't special either. Overall I was pretty disappointed with our meal and I don't plan on going back. more

Good Stuff 8/24/2004

Went there with my girlfriend and had a great meal. I liked the old time ambiance. Service and food is suberb. Spendy but if there is a steak house worth it, Murray's is the place. Good drink menu. Liked the live piano also. Good spacing Pros: design, Food, drinks more

Little has changed since the legendary steaks first sizzled here in 1946, and everyone's grateful for that.
