At Murphy’s Wagon Wheel, the good times have been rollin’ for over 125 years! Our location at 107 N. Lincoln Ave., in Hastings, Nebraska, has been a tavern/pub/saloon since way back in 1889. Eighty-three years after the original building was erected, Jim and Shirley Murphy bought the Wagon Wheel, in 1972, creating Murphy’s Wagon Wheel, which their son, current owner Bob Murphy, purchased from them four years later and immediately expanded to two rooms.

In 1984 a third room was added, to bring Murphy’s Wagon Wheel to its current size. During that time, a basic food menu of burgers and fried food was introduced, which today has expanded to a diverse array of favorites—everything from BBQ chicken and beef enchiladas to pork chops in mushroom sauce, sausage and peppers, crab bisque, chicken cordon bleu, twice baked potatoes, and great steaks at a great price. Our meats are now cooked on a hickory wood-fired grill for the best taste, plus we offer a variety of veggies—all in an atmosphere of fun that’s family friendly and maintains the historic look that’s been a part of the place for well over a century.

We also cater every kind of event, from weddings to meetings to corporate anniversaries, and carry wearables that include tee shirts, ladies tops, and ball caps.

Here’s just a sampling of some of the many favorable online comments posted by our patrons:

“I love Murphy’s!!! Wing night is a must and the space is so cool!  It’s very open and has a lot of room, and the bar is separate from the restaurant so you can get different atmospheres for your mood or party.” — Amy K, Mesa, Ariz.

“Murphy’s is definitely a must stop for booze and bar food when in Hastings…Their wait staff is always busting their butts to keep the drinks flowing and the food coming…I love their nachos; they’re piled to the ceiling with toppings and cheese.” — Gabby A, Lincoln, Neb.

“Murphy’s is consistently great.” (

So let the beer flow and the good times roll. Come by The Wheel and grab a beer and a bite!
