Why It’s Safe to Dine In at Murphy’s

Scroll below to discover the reasons why Murphy’s is a safe dine-in restaurant despite COVID. We’ve done a lot to put you at ease, such as installing an air conditioning system that kills viruses, expanding our outdoor heated dining areas, sanitizing tables and testing our staff!


Reservations recommended for dinner and walk ins possible only if space allows, so we can socially distance all diners.
Seating is limited to only a few guests to maintain social distance of 6+ feet between dining parties. No parties larger than 8 allowed. For parties of 9 or more, please email events@murphysvh.com

 Breathe Easy

We’ve remodeled our air conditioning and heating systems with the Synexis Microbial Reduction System that reduces microbial threats in the air and on surfaces 24/7/365. Murphy’s has always been cool, and now it’s healthier! Learn how it works: Synexis Microbial Reduction System.

 Your Table

Tables and chairs are sanitized after each dining party and spaced at least 6 feet away from each other, including outdoor seating on our patio.


Only 1 person allowed in restroom at a time, please lock the door. Our restrooms are touchless, including our employee’s restroom. We’ve installed anti-microbial push plates on all doors in the restaurant. Hand sanitizer and anti-viral wipes are available.

 Your Server

We’ve trained servers to bring your food from kitchen to table with health safety in mind. Servers wear masks and gloves and pass a health check before beginning work each day.

 Kitchen Safety

All chefs and cooks wear masks and gloves and pass a health check before beginning work each day. Our kitchen has always been top-rated in health inspections and very clean but we’ve installed new features like ultra-violet lights in our dish and expo areas to kill germs.

 Parking Instructions

Valets will wear masks and gloves. If you don’t want them to enter your car, they can direct you where to park yourself in a valet spot. You may also park yourself on nearby streets which recently are less crowded.

 When You Arrive

At busy times you’ll be greeted outside and your reservation confirmed or walk in status explained. We’ll move you inside to a socially-distant waiting area or  your table. We have hand-sanitizer available to you as you enter.
