Had a great dinner out with my wife (courtesy of a friend who watched out kid) here last night. Our first server was very chatty and was singing the praises of Maine Beer Co (with which I agree completely). Service was friendly, efficient and the servers were very knowledgeable about the cheese on offer, just as I’d expect from a place with Murray’s in the name. Had a cheese platter, a fondue and a mac and blue cheese - we probably could have done without the latter as the richness of the fondue left us pretty much sated after that alone. Had a bottle of Maine Brewing Lunch and a pint of Sculpin and both were hoppy and delicious. Some interesting ciders are also available here. Just an awesome place for a meal.

Visited a few months ago when they first opened for brunch..happened to be also nyc beer week..interesting little place hit up prior to going to blind tiger..has a nice brunch menu..obviously world class cheeses can be had..brunch was nice but overpriced...staff was friendly but seemed to be a bit lacking in knowledge from a place that you would expect everyone to be a cheese guru..

Definitely not the beer destination that Murray’s Cheese is but it’s still a solid place. It’s not a big place but the white dominant color scheme makes it seem bigger and friendlier and of course adds q cleanliness factor which always inspires confidence in the food. I didn’t have any of the food but I was very close to swiping the fresh mozzarella on the plate next to me. Wine is the main adult beverage of choice here but they do have 6 solid tap and 6 bottle options. Also despite being busy the staff was friendly. Definitely not a beer destination but you can still g a couple of beer ticks with lunch here.

I visited Murray’s Cheese Bar today and thoroughly enjoyed the place. First I should clear up some confusion. Murray’s first opened as a cheese shop and that location (254 Bleecker) is still a few stores away, and although they sell beer in bottles (like a grocery store) this is the real Murray’s "Bar" you want to visit as a craftbeer fan. This place opened in mid-2012. Murray’s Cheese Bar is all things cheese and meats (think charcuterie)...but they also feature great wines and craftbeers. Today they had Maine Beer’s "Lunch"...a fabulous & hard to get beer along with other similarly small and hard to get selections (Peekskill, Alphabet City, etc.). The decor is very nice and the service great, and the staff a pleasure to talk too (Salena & Courtney behind the bar were great). I highly recommend a visit here for the beer of course...but also for the great food (weekend brunches too).

Located right down the street from Blind Tiger. Lots of cheese and other goodies. They have a small wall/corner of some interesting beers. And while the selection is not overwhelming in number, the choices they have there are solid.

Not sure why this place is even in here, they hardly sell beer, but they have delicious and unique food and is well worth a trip if you’re a cheesehound.

Awesome cheese shop essentially across the street from Blind Tiger on Bleeker. I’ve never been to the "cheese bar" next door, but it looks neat. Inside Murray’s you’re greeted with a great variety of bread and cheese. Along the back corner is a nice solid selection of craft beers (evil twin, stillwater, tilquin, bruery, etc.). I was able to pick up two Stillwater Premiums here. Delicious.

Amazing cheese store right on same block as Blind Tiger. Services couldn’t be more helpful and they have a beer wall with interesting selection of beers. not a cheap place but worth a stop to get some great cheese and snacks and some beer to bring home.
