Great atmosphere. Server was good, not great. We have French Onion Soup and Wedge. It was good but not great. Soup needed more Onions. Our friends had a steak and it look great and they really enjoyed. So watch what you order. It is a...steak place.More

Pros: filet was large and perfectly cooked. Service was friendly and attentive. Poblano corn was delicious. Cons: loaded mashed potatoes were basic, cold and boring. Biggest thing that was off putting was how they clear dishes. They have a cart with a linen over it...and they take the plates from the tables and scrape the food off into small bins… two feet from your table. Sooo unappetizing and frankly gross. Not sure I’d return based on that alone. Decor is dated but still felt ‘fancy’ in an old fashioned sense. If you’re looking for phenomenal tasting filet, it’s worth the visit.More

We have loved this place for years, and I chose it for my birthday celebration. It is a great spot for celebrations, special business clients, and friends and family from out-of-town. We had a great waiter who was properly attentive and friendly. The bread basket...has everything good including warm pretzels and yummy garlic crisps. The French onion soup is wonderful. We ordered the butter knife steak for two and that was tender perfection. The corn poblano is fantastic if you love corn. They brought a birthday dessert to share. I love having a valet waiting in front and your car comes up fast. The place was busy, and there is a reason for that. I love the updated interior from its pink curtain days. It is elegant. What not to like about perfection?More

This place is a legend in Minneapolis and while not inexpensive, worth the money if you are a steak lover. The experience starts with a bread basket consisting of garlic toast (which I thought was the best thing I had all evening) and homemade pretzels....The steaks were delightful. My husband rolled his eyes in bliss when he had his first bite of the filet. The sides were plentiful - definitely enough to share. This place is very popular so make sure to make your reservation well in advance.More

I joined two colleagues for a early afternoon lunch at Murray’s. It was my first visit to this 76 year old Minneapolis landmark. At 1:30 in the afternoon on a cold and rainy Tuesday, business was light. But the Host who greeted us and the...Server (Sara) who attended to us were friendly, prompt, attentive, and we’ll trained. I ordered a Wedge Salad with Iced Tea. The tea was freshly brewed and crisp. The wedge was a departure for me, as explained by Sara it is the Upper Midwest style - combining Roquefort and French dressing (not mixed, but side by side). It was enjoyable, but I prefer the traditional (which Sara also offered when I ordered) to this regional favorite. I also would have preferred larger, more substantial bacon pieces rather than the crumbled bacon bits on this model. It was still a very nice, crisp, cold wedge salad. My colleagues gave good marks to the luncheon portion wedge salad with steak and the chicken Caesar salad. Overall a nice lunch experience. I’d like to return for dinner some evening.More

Fabulous food and service. The Silverbutterknife steak for two was scrumptious and more than enough for 3. Delicious walleye for our non-steak eater. Outstanding service! My favorite Minneapolis restaurant by a long shot. The crisps and pretzels were great as well.

I choose Murray’s based on reputation and TA reviews All aspects of the meal were awesome and I was not disappointed. The service by Sara was perfect! She did a wonderful job. My meat preparation was a close to my verbal description as I’ve ever...had. Crake Cakes and my remoulade were a 5 star. Atmosphere perfect. Valet park when you go which you must!More

It was a business dinner and everything was outstanding. The wine is is excellent and wines are priced from 50$ -450$ and there is enough to chose from. I had the k c 43 day aged steak on the bone it was one of the...best tasting steaks I have ever had. The other people ate ravioli and said it was very well prepared. There was a steak special that my friend totally enjoyed. We split vegetables and mashed potatoes ( low point ) but there was enough for three. Overall I would give this an 8 out of ten and I would highly recommend this placeMore

Last weekend we visited Murray's for the first time. It's a Minneapolis icon and I've walked past this restaurant for years admiring their old business sign "Home of the silver butter knife steak" and always wanting to have dinner there. So when a friend suggested...we go there I quickly said yes. The ambiance was incredible and the wait staff were very attentive. The crostini were AMAZING! But that's where it ended... I ordered the 18 ounce ribeye and it was just okay. It's unfortunate that a $62.00 ala carte steak was just ok. There were tough bits, it was chewy, and certainly not melt in your mouth fabulous or even very flavorful. I ordered potatoes au gratin on the side which were okay but nothing that stood out. I guess my expectations were just too high.More

Outstanding, as usual. The Silver Butter Knife steak for 2 was delicious, as was the accompaniments — the salads, potatoes. The toasted crisps were unique and plentiful. The food is enough for at least 2 dinners for 2. As such, the price is an exceptional...value. Service from Amy was attentive, friendly, and professional. THIS IS THE BEST STEAK PLACE ANYWHERE. We have enjoyed this reliable Minneapolis institution for over 35 years. We will definitely be back!More

We had only dined at Murray’s for lunch previously. The staff were very professional considering Covid, this was virtually our first dining experience since the onset of the pandemic. It was my birthday and we had a delightful dinner. Excellent service food and ambiance. We...had the silver butter knife steak, perfectly grilled, very reasonably priced. Great wine list and expertly prepared cocktails. We had picked out a Daou Cabernet prior to dining, which they were was unfortunately out of stock, our waitress recommended another Cabernet, which was excellent. Murray’s offered a free desert, due to my birthday, we were fully satisfied and declined. Best steak house in Minneapolis.More

I was on the causal side of business casual, but there were people dressed more formally--and less formally than me.
