From the neon sign out front, to the chandeliers, high ceilings, and plush drapery inside, to the garlic toast that starts the meal, Murray"s is pure vintage gold. And since 1946 Murray"s has been all about its signature steak, the Silver Butter Knife, a 28-ounce sirloin strip steak for two served on a sizzling platter, perfectly charred, and--you guessed it--so tender you can cut it with said cutlery. If you have room for dessert, try the bread pudding with whiskey sauce and raisins. They also have a swell early bird special Monday through Friday from 4:30 to 6 p.m., with a three-course dinner for $19.95. Budget dining is not just for grannies anymore.

The food is overpriced. The quality of the food would have to improve dramatically to justify the current price point. Good was the porterhouse. The quality of the Caesar salad was on par with a grocery store bagged salad. Little Debbie® Snack Cake came to mind after my first and last bite of the chocolate cake. Tasty enough was the sliver of raspberry pie, but it most certainly did not achieve an $8.95 level of delectability. I wondered if bread bowl was purchased from the day-old bakery. At this price point diners should be wowed rather than bored and disappointed. In addition, the decor was dated and dingy. Access was troublesome at best. Luis, our server, was simply the best. Yes, Luis was the lone star in our disappointing visit to Murray's.
Travis R- Proof that fine dining isn't just about the food, but atmosphere and service as well. Without any hesitation, he was eager to deliver our food promptly, correct an order when he found out a member of our party was allergic to wheat and recommend appropriate suggestions, and he never made us feel rushed even though we were the last ones out. 33% didn't seem enough, and I'm honestly kicking myself for not giving it to him in cash. Rereading this, this kind of sounfs like a fake post, except I know I'm not the only one impressed with his candor and professionalism. If he doesn't love his job, he's fooling a lot of people; he deserves good things in life, and definitely a raise.
Sure, everybody knows that the key to business success is "location, location, location," but we'd like to suggest another essential ingredient: signage, signage, signage. We've plummeted since the glory days of the mid-20th century, when businesses proudly announced themselves with all the flash they could muster, creating enormous monstrosities of neon and painted steel. Back then, if you wanted to find a building, you just scanned the horizon for its sign, and then followed the... More »
You aced your Class B motor vehicle test. You won the Nobel Prize. You just found out Aunt Nedra left you the millions you thought were going to Mr. Chunky. You want steak. You'd prefer the steak to be the kind that yields to the gentle yet firm pressure of a silver butter knife. Murray's is your place. Its gleaming, mirrored walls and swishy pink curtains recall prom night 1946, or your grandparents' third dinner date. The restaurant is classy in a Nat King Cole kind of way, and the silver...

The tables are set for the deal: pink linens, polished silver, crystal water goblets, and silver trays stacked with butter-soaked garlic toast. The décor is vintage blue chip: silk-lined walls, floor-to-ceiling mirrors, pink draperies, and cast-iron candelabra. The menu is fit for kings of business and queens of commerce: a broiled luncheon steak ($13.95), penne with chicken ($12.95), hot turkey with just-mashed potatoes ($8.50), or (our favorite) a steak sandwich grilled with...
