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.

“Great Breakfast (part of Windsor Suites reservation)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

We stayed at the Windsor Suites and had breakfast at Con Murphy's every morning as part of our reservation. We loved the food (big portions), loved the coffee (strong), and loved the service (friendly). It was a great place to start our day and eat a balanced, full meal before all the sight-seeing.

We had a very filling, well prepared, and tasty breakfast here upon our arrival. Good food, excellent coffee, and responsive but not hovering wait- staff.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

Con Murphy's is located in a hotel so that is not always a good thing. However in their case they offer exceptional food and have a very friendly staff. I usually take my customers there for lunch as it is very convenient to their office tower. My favorite is the turkey wrap, but other menu items are very good too...their home-made potato chips are to die for.

“Not a traditional pub”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

The restaurant is very loud which makes it an ok place to bring kids but overall the food was just ok. The French fries were not cooked through and the risotto was just alright. We were hoping for some Irish music but all we heard was music from the 80's. not sure we would return.
