About Us

Our History

Originally the Office for Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages, the building was converted to become Dee Dee's Steak House. After further alterations it became Murphy's Bar and Grill and has been maintained as such since 2003 when taken over by Joy and Chris Wells. 

Murphy's Bar and Grill has been gradually re-furbished to become a top class restaurant offering Illawarras' finest cuisine, service and civility, combined with an extensive cellar and bar. Relax in comfortable surroundings and enjoy the Murphy's experience.

Our extensive a la carte menu contains speciality dishes including steak, freshly shucked oysters, and also our unique duck dishes, as well as our traditional guinness pie and chicken parmigiana.
