Shocked at how few spots there are around the downtown area and I walked around a lot. Seat promptly, fast service, usually very crowded on good weather days...

Thanks very much for your review! We love our patio! It's a perfect spot for people watching and you can't beat the view. That's why we keep it open all year round.

I had the beet salad to go with a crab cake. The beet salad was very good. The crab cake had great breading... lots of breading. Very little crab. I suggest the beet salad with salmon or shrimp. The crab cake is really bad.

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 and daily specials available also. Finish off your meal with our delicious selection of housemade desserts that include Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Flourless Torte, Grand Marnier Creme Brulee and more. 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.
