Description: 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.

We enjoyed this lovely quaint restaurant. We were seated upstairs outside the kitchen and we where able to get a great visual on all the food leaving the kitchen. All I can say is WOW! Our waitress was Nicola, she was fabulous with her very strong Irish accent. She was on cue for everything. The food runner Ryan was on point, he entertained me by answering my many questions about the food he was carrying past us. I throughly enjoyed seeing all of it! The chef Max was kind enough to stop and speak to us. We were able to speak to him about his selections and he was more than happy to spend time answering my questions. Service was quick, food was fresh, hot, and delicious! I had the Fish and Chips, my husband had the Guiness Beef Stew. We had the Rueben egg rolls for a starter. We left very fulfilled and extremely satisfied. We recommend this restaurant to ALL! We visited on Sunday night about 6 pm. We did not wait to be seated. Seating was available.

I went for drinks and dinner on on warm evening. The dual level pub was cosy and the food and drink was great. Oh, and the fries taste like potatoes!

Thank you for the review Mike. We're glad you had a good time at our pub! Our fries are home cut and fried, they're the freshest fries you'll get in the city!
