We were on a road trip and arrived in Murphys - a quaint town - pity it was raining! However had a quick walk down the Main Street looking for somewhere to have lunch. We had a look n the local hotel which seemed a little dingy and went into an Irish bar. We were a party of four including a 12 year old who wanted 'fries'. Unfortunately the Irish bar did not serve fries but the waitress directed us to the restaurant across the street, being Firewood. We were glad she did! Excellent cafe/restaurant, you order at the counter, drinks and food. They serve beer but only in pints but we only wanted half pints, our server was only too happy to split a pint between two and was helpful with descriptions of the menu. We ordered burgers which were excellent. There were various sauces and salsas to help yourself and the place was clean, tidy and interesting. It was an old fire station. They also have a pizza oven and the pizzas I saw coming out looked delicious - in fact I wished I had ordered one! Would definitely recommend!

Great fish tacos, burgers and pizza! A well known local favorite. Casual but very good. Highly recommend and get extra napkins for the burger!

If you are in for a great tasting pizza from a wood fire oven, burger, or fish tacos without much entourage this is a place for you! Salads and quesadillas, French fryes and nachos. They have them all. Along with a nice choice of wines and beers.

We enjoyed lunch at Firewood. We had burgers and pizza and everything was good. You order your meal at the counter and your food is brought to you. They actually have a large menu including pizza and Mexican food. The server who brought our food was having an off day (with busing tables) but otherwise no issues. It was good casual dining and certainly much better than a chain restaurant. Prices were very reasonable and as a result, the place was busy. There is seating upstairs which worked since we were a party of 8.
