Fabulous place to eat out side. The stew was amazing! The outdoor atmosphere is wonderful! Definitely check to see if any protests are scheduled though because we had one walk right past.

We were here on St. Patrick's Day, and so were treated to a special menu. Bangers and mash - yum and a corned beef sandwich - also yum. Both were so good. The beer selection was pretty good, too. Very nice old building, so great atmosphere.

Ok it is St Patrick's Day, a Friday night and the height of March madness! Where can we get a corn beef dinner in Philly? Down the street from the Westin hotel we saw an Irish flag and followed our way to it! At the end there was a pit of gold! ConMyrphy's was so crowded. But the hostess said... More

I had the complimentary breakfast from Windsor... All I can say is, they don't really know what they serve... It's a basic American pub that serves Guinness... Bacon was dry and too crispy, asked for medium eggs and I got well done... Especially after living in Ireland for more than a month I expected a full Irish Breakfast from an... More

stopped in because it was close and convenient to our hotel during a rain storm - service was good but the sides to our meal could use some work - we ordered the meatloaf and grouper which were good but the mashed potatoes were flavorless and the veggies could have used some seasoning - the perrogi appetizer was a very...

We were staying at the attached Windsor Suites and went here for breakfast. The salmon eggs benedict was very good, as well as the pesto breakfast fries that came with it. I guess that this restaurant is not used to small children, because the hostess asked us if we wanted to sit at a high top. We have a 4... More

Stopped in for a bite to eat and the place has 2 levels. Had the meatloaf and it was delicious. Attentive staff and lively atmosphere. Easy to find....right on the corner. Short walk from the Sheraton where I was staying.

Our waitress Nikola was excellent. She was very observant of drinks and refilled before being asked. She knew the menu very well and made great suggestions. Spinach artichoke dip was probably the best I have had. My friend had the she crab soup, which she gets when she goes to the beach and said it was the best she crab... More

My husband and I were staying at the Windsor Suites hotel; Con Murphy's Irish Pub is located in the building so we popped in for some appetizers one evening. We had the nachos which were an excellent size to share and were served with sour cream and guac (at no extra charge)! The cheese was layered so you had a... More

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.
