Murphy's Bar and Grill
Owner Steve Halterman frequently ambles through the bustling dining room at Murphy’s Sports Bar and Grill, an Irish pub he founded more than a decade ago. As he mingles with the crowd, servers fill tables with traditional pub fare, made fresh to order rather than excavated from the fossilized remains traditional pubs. Patrons dig into entrees such as the chicken-fried chicken or the eatery’s signature burger, topped with A1 and bacon. Chefs also bake up specialty pizzas, such as the buffalo chicken pie slathered in spicy wing sauce and loaded with grilled chicken chunks. For a more intimate atmosphere, larger parties can retire from the main area to a private room, where groups of up to 145 can feast or swig pints of lager.
