Housed in a building that dates back to the 1890s, Murphy's Bar lays out a menu brimming with classic hearty pub fare. Vanquish appetites unconquerable by Trojan horse or kiwi catapult with dinners that star mighty proteins, such as smoked iowa chop ($10.95) or grilled or baked salmon ($12.95), accented by sides such as wild rice, sautéed vegetables, or a baked potato. Like Mother Nature's yearly wardrobe update, the blackened ahi sandwich ($8.50) and Cajun chicken sandwich ($6.95) boast festive seasonings, and an extensive lineup of more than 20 different beers stand ready to hydrate dusty esophagi. Gaze into Murphy's numerous LCD TVs to electronically witness sports games or see the reflection of chicken and broccoli traversing a fettuccine-alfredo obstacle course ($10.95).
