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.

I've eaten in Con Murphy's every time I've stayed at the Windsor. It's got a solid menu and the food always tastes great. I also really enjoy the beer selection.

It's incredibly loud, though, during dinner hour and the evening hours -- which made it difficult to have conversations and enjoy the company I was with.

We opted to stay "in" and ate at Con Murphy's the night we arrived at the Windsor in Philly. Great service and family (if a bit loud) atmosphere. Food was "so-so." Final day we had breakfast before leaving. Service was TERRIBLE! Food arrived well after 1 hour of waiting. Only 2 other tables were occupied in the entire restaurant.

This diamond in the rough sits at corner of 17th and BFP. The food is great and the drinks are potent and overflowing. If you are there for happy hour try the devil eggs, nachos and the chicken tenders.

I think someone forgot to tell the kitchen this is a bar. What a perfect balance, fun Irish pub and great food. The staff is wonderful, manager is energetic and shows everyone a good time. Get the tenders and stuff Jalapenos.

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.
