Welcome to Murray's Restaurant. Minneapolis' original restaurant for steak since 1946 & home of the award winning Silver Butterknife Steak dinner for two. Also known for mouth watering garlic toast, Hickory Smoked shrimp appetizer, and home baked pies. Well into its third generation of family ownership, Murray's stands out among local and out of town diners alike as a true Twin Cities landmark & continues to provide the best in food and service as it did in 1946.

Proper service, excellent steak, great sides. We sat in Walter Mondale’s booth - he had been in for lunch the previous week. All in all a great evening.

Overall, steaks were the best part of the meal ( as expected). Sides were above average. Dessert was good. Drinks were reasonably priced. Over all, I look forward to my next visit.

Great Food. Great Service. It was nice to go to a high rated restaurant and not have to spend $500 minimum for a great meal for 2!

Consistently one of the great places to dine in the Twin Cities - yes, it's expensive, but you can always expect a great meal, fine beverages and attentive service.

Only issue we had was the steaks were to salty, if you don’t like salt, make sure you tell them to use less seasoning and salt. Otherwise , great place.

Wanted to try Murrays Steaks as we listen to WCCO all the time and hear that they have outstanding steak from Sid Hartman. We were visiting in downtown MPLS on a convention.

While on business in MN, I thoroughly enjoyed dinner at Murray's. The restaurant was located next door to my hotel and quite convenient though I would've traveled miles to enjoy the French onion soup and ribeye steak that cut like butter.

I honestly don't know how to start this - there were so many amazing aspects to my dinner! First, I guess I'll start off by talking about the happy hour drinks. The happy hour menu is quite extensive- there are a variety of drinks and some awesome food options. I will absolutely come back just for happy hour. Next, the dinner. WOW! They really know how to cook steak! We ordered the Silver Butter Knife Steak for Two. The meat was perfectly cooked. The potatoes au gratin were perfectly baked. Our waitress was fabulous- I almost wanted to have her sit down and join us for a drink. Is it bad I want to find reasons to celebrate to go back?

Steak was a touch overcooked, which, for a $105 steak was a tad disappointing, but was still delicious, and the caramelized brussel sprouts were out of this world. The mirrors and drapes on the walls made it feel very spacious, the lighting was perfect, the staff were attentive, and our waiter was great.

We have been dining at Murray’s for years. There is no better restaurant in America. The chateaubriand for two is our go to dinner...Med Rare you’ll not find a better beef experience anywhere in the world. Get the bacon wrapped shrimp for a starter, the Caesar Salad, garlic toast, Au gratin potatoes, asparagus and finish with the raspberry pie and you’ll have the meal of a lifetime!!
And the family is simply the best.,.Tim Murray was recently inducted into the minn restaurant assoc hall of fame..Jill & James Murray round out the team that operates this great family tradition!! Their father Pat set a great example, originated by his parents, Art & Marie.
The foundation on which Murrays was built: purchase the best quality raw materials possible, prepared consistently with care, served by a quality staff and charge a fair price.
This was again our experience Sunday with our son visiting from Sitges, Spain!
Simply thanks, Murrays for another outstanding dining event!

The butter knife steak is some of the best meat I've ever eaten. Despite how lean it was it was cut with a butter knife, melt in your mouth delicious.
