The home made crust made this even better. It had plenty of chicken and vegetables inside and it was very good size. It included a soup so it was a very fair priced meal. I would definitely have this again.

Great food and atmosphere, especially the daily specials and Monday night pizza, yummy. Good beer as well. Easy to get to at 505 Clinton Avenue. St Clair boat harbour close by and free dockage by Murphys. Great locations to enjoy the annual power boat races on the St Clair River.

The staff very friendly! Answered our questions about the area. They were even kind enough to move us to a different room because of maintenance work going to be done that evening; so, it wouldn't disturb us.

Wife and I have been there before. So looking for an overnighter about 2.5 to 3 hrs away, this is perfect. Nothing extra special but worth the trip. Old established inn /bar/ restaurant. About 7 rooms above the bar/rrestaurant. Very nice and up kept with interesting decorations. Fun on the weekends for sure. Walking distance to the St Clair river... More

This was the second time I've stayed here, and even though it's only a half-hour from home, it feels like being on vacation. (My husband & I often come for dinner.) The building is historic and the decor of the rooms reflects that. Staying here feels cozy and laid-back. Be advised that all the rooms are on the second floor,... More

We decided to stay here on our last night of holidays. Drove all the way from Port Austin down to Clay and back to St. Clair (I picked St. Clair from our travel book "Discover the Blue") and randomly chose this hotel. My husband was already pleased that we could stay here and eat here-the restaurant is part of the... More

We were wanting to stay at the Bluewater Motel and have dinner at River Crab, but unfortunately the motel was full, so we thought we'd give the Murphy Inn a try, since the St. Clair Inn is a definite never again. We were so glad we did. What a charming old house. Rooms are clean, bedding very fresh and the... More

We were in town for a family wedding. The St. Clair Inn had been recommended , but I am someone who uses Tripadvisor and Yelp to check out places both here in the States and in China.After reading many reviews the St. Clair looked too risky. I found very good reviews of Murphy's Inn, and their website had video panoramas... More
