This is a great new addition to Murphys! I have been to Ireland, and it definitely makes you feel like you are in a cozy Irish pub. The Guinness is poured the right way and the food is very tasty!

It's a must do in town for those who would like to see the oldest bar in town, replete with buck heads, wood burning stove and sturdy wood bar! The crowd can get a bit loud and boisterous at night, so if you're looking for a quieter time to check it out, an afternoon drink is perfect. The outside bar opens up during the hotter months, and is also a great spot for a beverage!

Great winery at the beginning of Main Street in a historical building. The tasting room staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and their red blends like Aniv and Adom are great! You might even get to meet the wine maker, Nathan, in the tasting room. He's super friendly and pours love into the wine he makes...you can tell since it's so delicious!

When you walk into this winery you are transported to the hills of France, which is perfect because their focus is Rhone varietals. Both the whites and reds are good, and they offer a cheese tasting along with their wine tasting. The cheese tasting is reason enough to give this place a try! The smell of died lavender fills the tasting room…it’s quite pleasant.

Great, old world style wine and beautiful grounds! The owner will take you on a quick tour around their vineyard and describe the current condition of the vines. It’s a wonderful experience. It’s a little ride down highway 4 to get there, but it’s completely worth it! Enjoy!

The red wines here are fantastic, and when the weather is nice, there’s a great little seating area where one can taste wine and people watch in downtown Murphys. It’s one of our favorites!

Take a ride down highway 4 or dusty and scenic Six Mile Road to get to this tasting room located in a charming old cottage in the middle of fields and vines. The owner, David, is there somedays, and you’ll enjoy chatting with him and tasting the many varietals they grow right next the winery. There is a wonderful outdoor area with tables and trees for shade. It’s a great place to bring a snack or lunch and relax between wineries.

If you're interested in taking a trip up to Arnold and you're a beer lover, this is right up your alley! The food is good as well...especially the beer battered fries, which shouldn't come as a surprise. =) The dining area and bar feel a like a mini snow lodge and they always have several good, Snowshoe beers on tap. Drink like a local!

This divey bar is perfection, but sadly a decent drive out of town to Dorrington. During the winter, it serves as a cozy bar to get out of the snow, and in the summer and fall, it's a great place to sit out on the patio and enjoy the warm weather! They always have a variety of beer on tap, and the chili cheese fries and wings are amazing!

Natural Bridges is a great place to hike because of the reward at the end...the gorgeous underwater river and cave you get enjoy at the bottom. It's a special and unique place. Bring a tube for maximum enjoyment! Check out the map in the guide book at the house. =)

Often a place for families to have parties or to take a break near the creek on a hot day, it's a lovely place to stop by while in town! When it's hot outside, kids (some adults too!) take a dip into the cool creek that runs through the park. Really just lovely!

We know what you’re thinking…sushi? In Murphys? It’s actually very good! They have many common rolls, and some fun ones too! The seaweed salad is very tasty. They also have udon soup, katsu chicken and other cooked options. The restaurant is tiny, so we recommend calling ahead to secure a table.

Fresh, organic, locally sourced food made into incredibly delicious dishes presented beautifully. This restaurant is located on highway 4, so it can get missed if a visitor sticks to Main Street. If you feel like taking a little drive or a longer walk, this place is definitely worth the effort. The menu is small, so you’ll have to trust them (and you should). They will have a vegetarian, red meat and fish option though, so no need to worry. =) Don’t forget to dessert! Their soufflés are so good!

Even though this restaurant is located next to the gas station, don’t count it out! The menu contains an interesting blend of Asian and Mexican inspired fusion dishes. If you’re hankering for a banh mi sandwich, lumpia or pho, this will hit the spot! The sweet and spicy wings are sinfully delicious too!

This is a great, casual restaurant that is a good option for faster and less pricey dining. They have tasty tacos and pizza, and beer by the pitcher, and family friendly with a kids menu. This used to be a firehouse, so take note of the cool details they’ve retained as a nod to what the building once was.

This pizza is seriously addictive! We love the aloha chicken pizza so much we order it every time! The restaurant has TVs for watching the game, chalk board walls to keep kids engaged and have a few beers on tap. The only downside is they do not deliver so call for pick up!

This restaurant offers upscale pub food and American dishes – think pastas, fried calamari, and sandwiches. We’ve never been disappointed! Their take on corn bread is scrumptious, and it comes with your meal. If you enjoy beer, this is a great place to check out. They have many on tap, and a store attached that carries a wide variety of beers from all over.

Independent Mercantile is one of those gorgeous, bespoke stores that I love to roam around. It's a small store, but they have an amazing collection of handmade serving ware, jewelry, candles, lotions, scarves, and the list goes on. It's the perfect place for a unique gift or a splurge to forever remember your time in Murphys!

Indigeny Reserve hard cider brewery and distillery is worth a visit if you're willing to take the drive to Sonora. The impressive tasting room surrounded by idyllic apple orchards with several picnic tables outside to enjoy the setting. Inside the tasting room you will receive a free tasting of their 3 ciders, as well as a vodka and apple brandy tasting, if you're interested. They offer tours of the productions facilities at random times of the day based upon interest, so be sure to inquire if you'd like to see where all of the pressing, fermenting, and distilling magic happens! We love this place!
