Great restaurant in Murphys with an amazing list of beers, just be sure to ask for the Blue sheet to see all the different choices. Beer and wine are the only choices here. Consistently good menu with creative specials. I never order until I know what Chef Jason has whipped up for that day. Meatloaf is a terrific surprise. Never... More

Had lunch here after several recommendations and were not disappointed. A good selection, decent prices, good service. The food was cooked with interesting flavors and spices that made it unique. We really enjoyed the sweet potato fries! Would love to come back in the summer when I am sure this town is very busy.

Stopped in here on our way up to the Big Trees and thoroughly enjoyed it. We sat on the outdoor patio because it was a beautiful day and the main dining room seemed a bit loud and crowded for our taste. The patio was quaint and comfortable but secluded enough from the parking and street (unlike some outdoor I I... More

Walked into Alchemy at 3pm when 3 tables available in bar section. Hostess didn't greet us, just stood there working on paper work. She walked away a couple of times and came back to do more paperwork. We stood there for 5 minutes, finally told her customers come first and walked out. Shame because I love their meatloaf.

I have been here several times and it never disappoints. The menu has something for everyone and each dish is very well done. the crab mac and cheese is loaded with fresh dungeness and the specials are inventive. Wine list, of course, local and wonderful. A cozy interior with fireplace, friendly and intelligent service. I dream about it.

We were so surprised by our stay in Murphys, which we previously knew nothing about. Ended up in the town trying to get close to Bear Valley for skiing. We ate at Alchemy twice...interesting menu, tasty, nice staff, and live music on Tuesday. They had local wines on the menu which were fun to try.

My wife and I came for dinner on a Saturday night and barely made it on time. For some reason, a majority of restaurants in Murphys close at 8pm. We got there at 7:40pm and watched as they began to turn away those arriving at 8pm. That being said, the food was delicious. The restaurant dining room is small, but... More

Great food and ambience! Fresh garlic bread with a corn topping was amazing. Ordered the Potato Leek soup which was very good obviously made in house. Entree was Cranberry Glazed Salmon Salad with Glazed pecans and dried cranberries with the house vinegarette - perfectly dressed, great flavor and a full meal with a full 6 on plus filet, simply delicious....

This was my second visit to Alchemy. The first experience was good but I was unimpressed with the selection of beers that were offered. The chef/owner, Jason wrote a response letting me know they have a massive selection and that I should ask for him next time I'm in. The server told me they have an incredible list of beers,...
