We went for Mother’s Day. We had great drinks and the servers were wonderful. We had the BEST fries. So delicious. The Reuben and fish sandwich was great. The cheesesteak and chicken fingers were also great choices.

We loved the varied menu and excellent choices. The Guinness beef stew was really delish. Service was attentive. The outdoor seating area is complete, coveting is all the way over to the restaurant walls, and tables and chairs were not portable or makeshift. We plan to come here regularly.

We live in suburban PA and my sister, mother and myself decided to do Sunday brunch in the city. Excellent experience and our server Toya gave us the best service and recommendations on food and beverages. Will definitely be returning!

Con Murphy's is a great place for food, drinks, and even a quick meeting. They've done a great job with safety protocols, in addition to continuing the great services they have always provided. The food was great and they've added some new menu items too!

Our server was super friendly, and made a great suggestion for a meal.
*Try the Fried Chix Sandwich. It's delish*

We were immediately given a table upon arrival, which I love.

I will certainly be back again very soon!

Came in for a casual date night! We got to sit outside and they have a nice outdoor area with a covering and a few heat lamps. We got amazing fish tacos as an app and then I got fish and chips for an entree, which were a bit greasy but tasty fries! Definitely would come here again for the ambiance. I want to try their weekend brunch!

This was an excellent place for Brunch on Sunday. The food was very original. I had the potato soup and the Irish Breakfast. Both were spectacular. The service was excellent. The coffee was strong and hot just like I like it. We cannot wait to return. A most excellent experience.

Service wasnt awful but wasn’t great either. My biggest issue was the cleanliness of the establishment overall. Came in for a girls brunch during our trip & since the restaurant was attached to our hotel it seemed perfect for a brunch to end our vacation. Coffee cups were dirty & there was MOLD & dirt all inside of the sugar caddies we were given. We made our server aware & she did not seemed surprised by this. Which made us a little concerned with the cleanliness of the kitchen where our food was prepared. Although the food was tasty we left feeling concerned & probably will never return.

Out with my son to visit Philly and celebrate his graduation. We sat outside and had a nice time. Only problem, the wait staff was terrible. Only 6 tables and we barely saw our waitress (no water refills, never asked if I wanted another coffee, etc).

The server was excellent. I will start with that. She had many tables and was still very attentive. The main issue was the Food service. We went at about 1 pm on a Saturday. I ordered the eggs Benedict and it first came out with a hair on it.. They took it back and made me a new one but the hollandaise was broken. I was hungry so I ate it anyway. Everyone at my table did not get their food at the same time. Two of the dishes came out maybe 15 minutes after mine and it was a salad and a flatbread which really should not take as long as it did. They did comp my drink to make up for the first Benedict , but it was pretty clear the kitchen was not organized or they couldn't handle the Saturday lunch crowd.. even though we had a reservation. Again, the server couldn't have been nicer which is why I still gave a decent rating, but I will not be going back. Also, being located on a busy street expect to have noise from traffic.
