No joke, the best sports bar in town! – I was in Chicago in November and on the day we left, we had 6 hours to burn before flying back to NJ. We ordered a Chicago Classic Pizza and put down a few Old Styles, the local Chicago brewski. Since the Bears were in town, you could really see what a Chicago sports bar is all about. The T-shirt collection they got going is something else too..I just had to indulge. I can't wait to see the real deal in the summer when I come back and the Cubs are in town. Definately all as advertised!
Pleasant place for football... – During Cubs games (and pretty much for all of baseball season), this place is complete madness. But go in during football season and it's a nice,relaxed place to watch all the games. The chairs/tables, though, are more set up for standing room, so it's not the most comfortable place to hang for three hours.
For many Cubs fans, a game-day trip to this Wrigleyville bar is as traditional as the national anthem. – In Short
The bar behind Wrigley Field's right-field bleachers features--what else?--tons of Cubs memorabilia, plus ballpark favorites like hot dogs, brats, burgers and plenty of beer. Sidewalk seating proves a good vantage point pre- and post-game; there are booths in the back room, but the bar's usually standing room only with rowdy, young fans. The main bar serves standard drinks, and a smaller bar in back sells cider and Harp on tap and bottled imports.
Unfortunately, I now live in Stone Mountain Ga. but I am originally fron Norridge Il.
I am a left field bleachers fan along with the "Bleacher Preacher" , Ronnie woo woo , Carmilla Hartigan and all the others. We always start out and end up every game at Jim Murphy's, the only bar to go to--the best.! My mouth is watering just thinking of a nice cold Bud and one of those GREAT Murphy's cheezeburgers. Hope to get back asap. Later Skip "jazz7816"
Sports bar – What do you expect. Good lively crowd. Prices a little on the high side. Food is good, large burgers, and a great atmosphere. Lively no matter if the Cubs win or lose...
Jerky Jim Murphy – Talk about no atmosphere and expensive drinks - the only reason to ever go here is for post Cubs and even then you will spend $4 for a warm beer. During the off-season this place is a dump with terrible food.
overrated – bad food, overpriced drinks, & too many so called cub fans
