Con Murphy's is an authentic cozy Irish Pub in the heart of Center City. Just a stones throw from Philly's best museums, hotels & attractions. Serving perhaps the best pint of Guinness in the city, along with 11 other beers on tap, a classy yet comfortable pub awaits you. With an outdoor patio right on The Ben Franklin Parkway there's no better place for people watching & taking in a nice sunset.


Con Murphy's have created a menu to please all palates from the traditional Shepherds Pie (made with Lamb) & Fish'n'Chips to NY Strip Steaks & the local favorite Philly Cheesesteak. There is always a nice selection of seafood available also. Items such as She Crab Soup, Housemade Hummus, Reuben & Chicken Pot Pie are popular dishes with the locals. Of course an Irish pub isn't authentic without a traditional Irish Breakfast which is available on the breakfast menu that is served 7 days a week along with other morning-time favorites.

My kids and I had a wonderful experience. So much so that my son begged me to return because he loved the fish & chips. We ate there twice during our stay in Philly and both times were great. Great place, delicious food & fantastic service.

Would never go to this place again. Large party on the second floor with people walking in the dining area. I called the manager over and she said there was nothing she could do with this group of over 50 people. She said they were a small group and people just keep showing up. The management is inept and I would never go here again.

A group of 5 of us came here to celebrate a birthday dinner and the food was amazing. Happy hour drinks are totally worth it and the wings and nachos were stellar! Service was great and our waitress was very accommodating. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

We had made a reservation on Open Table which unfortunately the restaurant released, but I understand as they were busy and we were 30 minutes late. Staff worked hard to accommodate us anyway, which I appreciated.

The Restaurant does not check the Internet Reservations!!!
When we arrived the greeter does not have the internet reservations.
She said that previous guests also said the made internet reservations.

Sooooooo this Internet Reservation Service is not used by the restaurant.

A true sports bar with lots of TV screens, but no TV sound so the sound level in the restaurant is quite acceptable. Extensive craft beer menu of all types and origins, with good descriptions from a knowledgeable waitress. Had delicious Korean short rib tacos (sounds weird but really good) and an excellent thin crust pizza. Not too many choices around Logan Square, but this was a winner.

They had a crowd that was overstaying their reservation & they couldn’t seat us at reservation time. We sat at the bar upstairs. After a few minute I made my displeasure know to the manager. He understood & explained. He seated us soon after with apologies & a complimentary round of drinks. The food was outstanding.

They did a great job managing a situation that would have gone sideways in many places.

Had a nice dinner at Con Murphy's Irish Pub this past Friday. We arrived almost an hour before our scheduled reservation and were seated right away (it was REALLY early) at the outside patio. While the patio area was a bit noisy with the cars and people going by, it was still very nice and enjoyable. Since half our party wasn't there as early as we were, we ordered apps and drinks and just enjoyed the beautiful day. Service was good, and the food was good. They have a bit of a limited menu, but it's typical pub food with some Irish well knowns thrown in for good measure. Would definitely return, if in that area again.

Food was just okay. Service was terrible. The server forgot my coffee, then messed up my sister-in-law's drink order. My cup was dirty and her cup was covered in lipstick. I asked for grilled tomato and got raw tomato. My brother asked for his bacon to be less crispy than mine and all the bacon was crispy and not at all warm. The server wasn't very friendly or apologetic for her various mistakes.

I’ve been here on a few other occasions for business oriented meals and I’ve always been happy with service and food as a whole. Server was attentive, but also ensured we were taken care of in a timely manner so we were able to enjoy our food and be back in the office within a reasonable amount of time.

Husband's birthday dinner, which I noted in Open Table, and the wait staff offered free dessert :). Server was very nice, but very busy. Drinks were good. Very tight quarters; I was glad it was only our little family. Six year old son loved the pasta with butter!

Grand food, service, atmosphere and drinks. You must try the Short Rib Gravy Fries as they were amazingly delicious. Also enjoyed the Bacon Cheese Burger with sautéed onions and fries. Just wished I saved room for dessert to taste the bread pudding. I'll be sure to try it during my next visit.

I considered eating at this place for the location close to the museum district and hotels.
Well I enjoyed the pub so much I went twice during my visit to Philadelphia breakfast was delicious so many items to choose from with a little twist. Dinner was equally tasty, I don't drink but the bar looked well stocked with top shelf wine and spirits. My husband and I will be returning soon.

Our party came to eat after the Philly Love Run. We had to move our reservation up a half hour and we were quickly changed. I asked for seating for a person with some physical limitation and was accommodated with no problem. Food was very satisfying after being out in the weather for three hours. Atmosphere was fun as many of the patrons were coming from the run at that time. First visit there and I would go back. Staff was very pleasant.

Went for the first time during lunch for work. I am a new Center City worker and browsed OpenTable for ideas. It was in walking distance and the food was served fast and hot. Not a cheap lunch but certainly worth considering!

The roast beef in my sandwich was overdone and dry. My husband's burger was nearly raw inside. He requested medium well!
