Bottom line--a great place. It's like a restaurant situated in a pub...the bar seems secondary to the restaurant. Great, creative but at the same time traditional dishes--chicken pot pie and fish & chips are awesome. Very relaxing candle-lit tables, pleasant employees, and soothing "Enya-type" music in the background. A few notes of caution...its cash only (there's an ATM across the street), they don't serve fountain soda (Coke, Sprite, etc), and the food probably isn't terribly appetizing to kids below 10 or so--these aren't critiques, just information. They offer free oysters on Mondays. Erin go bragh...

The food, the ambience and the service. The cod was amazing as we're the mussels.

I love Matt Murphy's. I love their Irish brunch, the service, and even the homemade ketchup. I must say that I have only been here during brunch, but never have I been disappointed. The food today was phenomenal, better than I remembered. The lovely waiter brought us two steamy cups of coffee along with artisan raisin bread and full flavor butter. I had their fluffy smoked salmon omelet with roasted asparagus, slow cooked tomatoes, chives, and sour cream. My Irish bf appropriately got the Irish breakfast with sausage, hand cut fries, bacon, black in white pudding (sausage) and scrambled eggs with ample amounts of cooked root vegetables. Even though, the portions were huge it was difficult for me to stop eating. Matt Murphy's is my favorite brunch location. It makes me very happy that I live in Boston and have this unique and wonderful gem of a restaurant. I recommend this place to anyone who has a love for food, drink, or Irish culture.

Great food, and I love the feeling of the public itself. Great place to earn yourself with food and drinks on a cold night

I love Matt Murphy's. I love the food, the beer, the atmosphere. It's one of my favorite places to take out of town guests for a true Boston pub with some excellent food. You should try the fish and chips, the curry fries, and whatever they have on tap. If you're going for lunch, give the egg salad sandwich a try if you're into egg salad. I am, and I love it. I wouldn't mind if they brought prices down a bit, but as its in Brookline, I'm not complaining/surprised at the tab when I go with a few people. It's a good date spot if you are looking for something homey and no frills. CASH ONLY--there's a bunch of ATMs nearby, but come prepared!

Cash only is annoying and it's tiny with no place to wait, so on busy nights, be prepared to be disappointed. However, the cocktails are carefully made, the beer list is good, and the food's delicious. Very sexy atmosphere, as well.
