hippio_awardMurphy’s Diner opened in February 2012, under the ownership and operation of Keith Murphy, the proprietor of next-door Murphy’s Taproom. The diner is modeled after Ralphie’s Diner, formerly located in Timonium, Maryland, where Keith got his start in the restaurant industry. Upscale and clean, the American diner represents a time before poodle skirts and stainless steel facades, the art deco era. Offering speedy, friendly service and consistently good food, Murphy’s Diner has quickly become a fixture in downtown Manchester.
