Went on the most overrated snowstorm in history. Basically nothing else in Philly was open. So glad they were as it was awesome! Had a cheesesteak and fries. Soo good!

Thanks for the kind review! We work hard every day to make sure we serve, fresh, hot meals. Our cheesesteak is a menu favorite and our housemade fries always catch people off gaurd! We hope to see you again soon!

When roughly 95% of Philadelphia shut down due to a snow storm, Con Murphy’s remained open. A unique, cozy two level Irish pub with an authentic feel even though it is attached to a hotel. The fish and chips, creme brûlée, were tasty as expected....More

Tried to get in for a couple of days as it is connected to my hotel. When I finally was able to dine, the complete experience was wonderful. The service and the food were just what I needed.

Their happy hour is great! The location is right underneath the Windsor Hotel where we stayed and it was great to have a drink first and then explore the city!

I’ve been here for dinner with my girlfriend, we had a turkey burger and Philly cheesesteak and they were both so good. Beer is good but the Guinness is not like in Ireland. The service was good but a little slow.

We're so glad that you enjoyed your meals and thank you for the nice review. Although we take great care in making sure our Guinness is fresh and exactly the right temp, the Guinness in Ireland is something special! Hope you visit us again!

Very closed to my Hotel in Philly,located in a good area with a real Irish atmosphere. I had a turkey burger and it was excellent!! Will definitely recommend for lunch or dinner.

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.
