What the community has to say about Murphy's Bar & Grill

Information about this business (2)

This hybrid bar and grill is set in downtown Honolulu and is a favorite hang-out for the business and media communities and one of the only places in the Hawaiian Islands where you can get a pint of Guinness from the tap. While the bar roars with excitement, the restaurant serves great salads, steaks and other fare at decent prices. The food is fresh, and the service is congenial.

Located in the heart of the financial district, Honolulu's go-to Irish bar serves Guinness on tap and an Irish-American menu of pubby favorites such as spicy chicken wings, jalapeño poppers, fish-and-chips, corned beef and cabbage, and grilled New York steak—without that Waikiki price tag. But probably the most popular menu item is the Blarney Burger, gooey with Guinness-infused cheddar cheese....

In a vintage brick building at the corner of Nuuanu Street and Merchant, Murphy's Bar & Grill is an old-fashioned Irish pub, sports bar, and kamaaina-style family restaurant. Comfort food is the order of the day, and the friendly bartenders happily handle the weekend bar crowd.

On the edge of Chinatown, this bar has served drinks to such locals and visitors as King Kalakaua and Robert Louis Stevenson since the late 1800s. The kind of Irish pub you'd find in Boston, Murphy's is a break from all the tropical fruit-garnished drinks found in Waikiki, and it's definitely the place to be on St. Patrick's Day. Its block party fundraiser on that day is one of the most popular...

Murphy's Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

This downtown pub is located in an historic nineteenth-century saloon where King Kalakaua himself was known to bend an elbow. Now, it’s a destination for lunch and drinks and snacks in the evening. For the former, we’re fond of the salads, like the Caesar with seared ahi or the massive Cobb with plenty of bacon, blue cheese and turkey. Burgers are substantial, and there’s a daily special. Also...

It’s the bar that has convinced everyone on the island that they are part Irish. Food, football and fun is what proprietor Don Murphy has excelled at. The menu is well indowed with pub and local fare and the beer is always cold and inviting on hot Hawaiian afternoons. The crowd is cordial and if you’re lucky to get in on one of the block parties, it’ll be an experience that will make you sing.

We had not been to Murphy's for at least 25 years, and after dining there again, I don't know why not. We had dinner with our son and his wife. Although I never wander from ordering my pre-dinner martini, their cocktail menu was so tempting...

Always a great choice for happy hour or a meal

A friend and I popped in on a weeknight to enjoy a meal and were o erwhelmed by the menu we got. While my friend stuck with the tried and true fish and chips, I opted for the steak salad. Loaded with fresh greens, avocado,...

We had an outstanding dinner here before a concert at Aloha Tower (which is within walking distance). The atmosphere was great with 80s music in the background. I was surprised it was not crowded at all on a Saturday night. The service was very friendly...

Can't say enough about this treasure of a restaurant. The menu, the atmosphere, the service, all wonderful! Home made style dinners made from scratch. I had the rib eye and mashed potatoes and veggies and the Key Lime Pie was out of this world! If...

Great Irish resturant- pub. We stop by most trips to Honolulu. My husband's favorite. He loves Fish & Chips. The Shepherds Pie with lamb is lovely. Corn Beef & Cabbage is wonderful. Potato Skin & Corn Beef "Nacho" is a meal unto it self. Of...

Murphy's Bar & Grill is a unique establishment in Honolulu thanks to providing a combination of great pub atmosphere with delicious Hawaiian style food. Visitors here will have the option of enjoying a wide range of beers, while also having an expansive and well priced selection of bar food to choose from. Perhaps in an attempt to keep things low-key, the portions here are rather sizable, and...

Murphy’s Bar and Grill is a longtime neighborhood staple in downtown Honolulu, home to the largest St. Patrick Day celebration in the Pacific. Since 1987, we have been giving our clientele a little taste of the Irish homeland, all wrapped up in great food, good company, and an extensive bar with 16 unique beers on tap. We are open daily, from the weekly business lunches to intimate dinners to...

Murphys Bar & Grill is the anchor for an unlikely Irish corner of Chinatown. Folks are in and out all day and night, whether to enjoy a diverse menu that includes fare from Blarney burgers to short rib stroganoff, or to catch their sports fix and cheer for the team of their choice. Plenty of Guinness, sports memorabilia, shuffleboard and souvenirs from old Erin make Murphys a favorite...
