With Murphys Craft House, Geist, Fishers, Lawrence and Indianapolis residents have another excellent, new place to meet friends and enjoy a delicious meal.
Murphys Craft House has a wide variety of great menu items including steaks, burgers and seafood. The new restaurant, located at 11705 Fox Road, in the Marsh shopping center, has already garnered loyal guests.
Owners Ryan and Craig Stonebraker are experts at running restaurants that keep people coming back for superb food and drinks at good prices, with high-quality service.
With the success of Murphys PubHouse, 11650 Olio Road, in the Kroger Shopping Center in Fishers, the 6120 E. Thompson Road location, at the corner of Thompson and Arlington Roads, the earlier Ah Barista Café in downtown Indianapolis and the long-running and legendary Murphy’s Steakhouse in Indianapolis, it made sense to open another restaurant.
Ryan Stonebraker said he and his family had never been more excited about opening at a new location.
“This is our biggest restaurant so far,” Ryan said. “We have more seating, excellent menu items and a wide variety of drink specials. We pay close attention to what our guests want and make sure they get the best.”
Murphys Craft House also has live music and a large patio. Indy resident, Kirstin Welcher said she has already been twice since the restaurant recently opened.
“I love their steaks, seafood and the friendly staff,” Welcher said. “They really go out of their way to make you feel at home, and their recommendations are right on the money. The quality of the food is just the same as it is as Murphys PubHouse in Fishers. You can tell the staff puts a lot of effort into everything they do.”
Derek Steele, another Indianapolis resident, agreed.
“I love the way you feel right at home when you walk in the door,” Steele said. “It’s such a relaxed feeling. I feel comfortable because the staff is so friendly. Every time I went to Murphys PubHouse in Fishers, I had a great meal, and I was able to unwind and forget the stresses of the day. That is a good sign of a quality restaurant. It’s the same at Murphys Craft House. You feel like you are being taken care of, and you get an excellent meal. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
