Murphy’s at Flynn’s 5198 Allisonville Road

Well the name Murphy and Pat Flynn have been pretty well know on the North side for many years,with Murphy’s Steakhouse on Keystone and Pat Flynn’s Public House on Allisonville. A couple of years ago Murphy’s Steak house closed its Keystone location and moved to the Pat Flynn site. It has kept both names; I assume to take advantage of the name recognition of each. The menu has items suitable for both a steak house and a pub. Pat and I popped in for a beer one Tuesday afternoon and noticed that they have a set schedule of specials. On Tuesday it is a 6 ounce filet with potato choice and soup or salad for $9.99. So here we are. Tuesday at Murphy’s at Flynn’s.

Their soup offerings that day were white bean and French onion;both too filling for us. So we both decided on salad.

It was a salad. What can be said about a salad? It was fresh and chilled with crunchy stuff on top.

As for me I was very impressed with the steak. It was very tender. The seasoning was minimal if at all,which is fine with me. I prefer the naked taste of the steak. Needless to say Murphy’s has two new fans.

The time we stopped for beers we ordered some mushrooms. They were pretty good. Couple that with the steaks and I will say they know how to cook at this joint. Murphy’s offers a different lunch and dinner special every day of the week. They also have pie and cobbler.

They have 4 or 5 beers on tap,some local brews. They also build a pretty tasty Manhattan for 6 bucks.

So;in summation you can get an old school steak lunch and cocktail for $16 plus tax. Toss in a respectable tip and you have only dropped a twenty,tax not included. Of course a cocktail isn’t mandatory. I just think it makes lunch much more jovial.

  1. Yum! Looks like a classy meal at a nice joint. They steak looks juicy! So you only do butter and SC on the potato? I like all five. In fact, that was one of my first posts: why don’t restaurants all give you the standard five toppings for free? I need the bacon, cheese, and chives as well. And what’s in a Manhattan? I’ve never had one.

    • When I eat a ‘tater with a steak butter and sour is all I need. By itself I like the bacon and cheese. Ahh. a Manhattan. It originally called for rye whiskey now bourbon is okay. In either case it is 3 parts bourbon to 1 part sweet vermouth, a few dashes of bitters and served with a cherry. A perfect Manhattan requires both white and red vermouth in equal parts. To me it is the quintessential cocktail before a steak dinner.

      • It seems like you would need dim lighting to enjoy it. Steakhouse lighting.

      • Dim lighting is appropriate if you are with a lady. Sitting at a bar with another old man the lighting doesn’t really matter. On a side note I can see you rocking a mink and enjoying a Manhattan as a prelude to a steak dinner;with a loaded potato at some swank joint.

      • I would hope some crazy PETA person wouldn’t come pour red paint on my beautiful mink. The mink was going to die someday anyway.

      • You are oh so right about that.

  2. I’m a huge fan of this place. I think it’s a largely undiscovered treasure!
