Murphy Hospitality Group – Creating Memorable Experiences

Murphy Hospitality Group includes 16 food and beverage operations, 2 boutique hotels and the Prince Edward Island Brewing Company. From the early beginnings, MHG was based on these basic principles – friendly & knowledgeable staff, great food & beer, clean and comfortable locations and providing an extraordinary experience. 40 years later, we still stand by this.

In 1980, we opened our first restaurant. Kathy and I ran the restaurant, we were the hosts, the dishwashers, we worked all aspects of the business. Thankfully we’ve grown since then and we are very fortunate in this community to be able to grow and have fun in this business. That comes with a lot of hard work, great people, and a little bit of luck along the way. One thing I can say is that we have enjoyed every day. That is what we consider part of the ‘it’ factor and that is something we want our guests and employees to see and enjoy.
This is, and has always been, a family run business. My wife, Kathy, three sons, Ben, Sam and Isaac, are integral parts of the company and you will see us around the restaurants and hotels…we want to get to know you.
What we do know is that we will continue to have fun, continue to hire great people and grow MHG. Although some things have changed over the years, our principles remain the same: friendly, knowledgeable staff, great food, and clean and comfortable locations that help us to create memorable experiences.
