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 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.
