We were in Murphys for a girls weekend, and discovered Alchemy. We were able to get a table within minutes on a Friday night without a reservation, so we felt fortunate. Our only "complaint" was that there were too many good choices on the menu!...More

So good! We were on a road trip and it was refreshing to have such a creative and fresh menu. The restaurant is also in a perfect location to walk around town. We would visit again!

Always good, but we heard they are changing owners in January! We will certainly try it again... Love the Meatloaf and garlic mash along with the fireplace!

They have the best Strawberry Balsamic Glazed Salmon that is grilled, and sits on top of a arugula, pecan, & strawberry salad. Served with their amazing Gold Nugget Cheese bread, yum (:
