Found this place accidentally and was very pleased. Meatloaf with mashed potatoes ($13,95) was delicious, tasted like home cooking, big portion. The "porky revenge" (pulled pork sandwich, $10,95) was also awesome. Our waiter was super nice, gave us a few tips about the city. Cool ambiance, parking in front. Definitely recommend it!

Food not bad. Had meatloaf. It was just okay. Gravy was delicious. There was some kind of spice not sure what it was but I didn't care for it. Heard pot roast was very good. Gravy was very salty

Our service from Ashley was very good. We ordered the Murdock's burger and it was very tasty. We sat outside and didn't feel abandoned. We will return for a drink and/ or food more times. Thanks

Went to Murdock's in February and saw the band Bitter Sweet. I had a blast. The band was a lot of fun giving a good vibe and exciting atmosphere to the place. I will defiantly be back.

Wow...this place is great. The menu is huge and something for everyone. My love for lobster was married with everyone's comfort food Mac n Cheese...Mouthwatering ❤️❤️❤️. We left room for desert and both choices were devine. There a great local band for patrons to enjoy. We'll make this a regular stop when we are in town.

Murdock's seems to always have the right music accompaniment with a good menu. This past Saturday night was no exception, and the harmonious voices from the band made every bite of my delicious burger taste better !! Tired of having your ears bleed and stomach pounded by loud raucous bands ? Not with this band, and with the great food,... More

Went there Saturday night just to see the band Bittersweet. They always play songs my friends and I enjoy listening to. It's not a bad place to grab a bite to eat either.

Great night turned horrible. Cocoa village area was awesome, Murdocks ruined it. While out with about 15 friends, we went to Several pubs in the area. 4 of the 15 were doing a paid for pub crawl. The other 11 were buying drinks as they went. Murdocks would not honor the 4 beers on the crawl tickets. Said we were... More
