Food Porn: Murphy’s Main Street Station

UPDATE: Murphy’s has changed their name since our review to Mason’s Grille 52, the ownership is still the same and their menu has remained similar.  However with renovations to the building they decided to change the name and go for a new “look” to match the dining options.

When you go somewhere new, there is always an anticipation of what’s to come.  We walked into Murphy’s and immediately expected a good meal of pub food, wings/fingers/cheese fries/etc.  But when we were given the menu we were surprised to see a more diverse menu, with a good selection of pricey-r steaks and chicken entrees’.  The price range was $15 to $25, so it was a little more expensive then we were planning.

We started our meal with two appetizers, their “Jumbo” Fried Ravioli’s and some French Onion Soup.  The fried ravioli were really good, but they weren’t as “jumbo” as advertised but still good none the less.  They were fried just to perfection, not overly burned and not too soft inside.  The French Onion Soup was also good, but nothing ground breaking.  The more I think about it, the more I realize that almost all French Onion soup tastes the same.  Sure some places make it salty as hell, but Murphy’s was good.  It could have used some more cheese on top, but otherwise good.

For our meal we decided to try the steak, Alli ordered the NY Strip Steak and she ordered it medium-rare.  Which was a good idea, because they still cooked it pretty well done, the inside was a little pink but nothing like ‘medium-rare’.  However she still enjoyed it, along with the mashed potato side.  I ordered the Chicken Oscar, which was basically grilled chicken covered in a crab meat sauce (a little more crab meat would have been wonderful) with waffle fries (a weird combination I know) that could have been fried or cooked a little longer..  But for a little bar in the middle of Hamburg I was pretty impressed with the meal.

Hamburg is starting to impress me the more I eat there.  Buffalo Street Grill was the first, Tina’s is always a classic and I’ve yet to try Coyote Cafe.  Murphy’s is a good place to eat, however it is a little more expensive then expected but their food is good.

    Bizzle, you gotta hit up Coyote Cafe!!! Everytime i eat in i get the Carnita plate…basically a pork in a semi spicy sauce that you can make into your own little tacos. The menu if i remember correctly is a little bit pricy(certain items) but its good food. Also if you feel like Coyote Cafe and dont wanna dine in, they offer this meal (not sure on the same) But its like $35 bucks and can feed well over 4 people, your choice of chicken or steak for fajitas, comes with a monster tray of lettuce, cheese, tomato, tortilla shells…and 2 sides. I usually go with the mexican potatoes and mexican spaghetti. When i say trays, they are literally those big metal trays that you can toss when done
