Chophouse is a small place with good food. My favorite is the fish. The service is good and atmosphere is just right. Whenever I visit Murphy, this is where I eat lunch.

Between 4 people, we ordered fried chicken, salmon, bacon-wrapped scallop, a salad, and some of the best calamari we've had. Our server, Mark, was attentive and friendly despite being quite busy at the time (consistent with his other tables as far as we can tell)....More
