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 other craft beers and signature cocktails, 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 has created a menu to please all palates from the traditional Shepherds Pie (made with Lamb) & Fish'n'Chips & the local favorite Philly Cheesesteak.

Great place. Food was really good. Reservation on time. Staff was as pleasant and helpful as you can imagine. We had an issue with the reward points, but they provided all the assistance that one could ever want. Ironed that one out.
Kudos to Ulana and her wait staff and the front desk young lady.

Me and my buddies had an exceptional time.

Transcends the usual "Irish pub' menu and ambience. Food was excellent and our only concern was the batter on the fish and chips a=was a bit under cooked along one side. The grouper sandwich was divine, rivaling that of the Hurricane Restaurant on St. Pete Beach in Florida. Service excellent. Will certainly return.

We had a table for four for a family day in the city. Great atmosphere. A bit noisy/lively downstairs, but our table was in the back upstairs which gave enough quiet to enjoy our visit and chat. Enjoyed everything about the place.

Took our daughter and her roommate out for lunch to give them a break from college food. Picked this place based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. We all picked something different - one of us got the cheesesteak, another the buttermilk chicken sandwich, my wife got the Reuben and I got the Sheppards Pie. All were very good, but the Sheppards Pie was amazing and I would highly recommend it. Service was great and waitress was very attentive.

Two of us shared a mixed green salad, fish & chips and stew. Portions were very generous. Fish is some of the best we've had - lightly breaded on delicious fish. Chips were a bit soggy and a little overdone (maybe from end of batch?). Stew was great but strong taste (maybe from the beer?) that may not appeal to all. One of us had the hamburger with fries, also very generous portion, and fries/chips not a dark. Server/kitchen split the food we were sharing - salad, fish & chips on separate plates and the stew in separate bowls - which was very helpful and much appreciated. Baguette and bread that came with stew was soft and flavorful.
The bar area was very loud and the noise carried upstairs for indoor dining. We were there on a Friday night so might have been busier, plus had live music starting about 7:40 PM. There is outdoor seating with separate booths/open windows, but it's on a busy corner with car and foot traffic, which might not bother some.

Thanks so much for taking the time to review! We are very glad you enjoyed most of the food (the fries are usually terrific, so we are sorry for those)! Friday is one of our busiest nights so it does tend to be on the noisier side. We do hope you visit again soon!

The food was pretty good, especially for an Irish pub…which aren’t really known for their cuisine…Me and my husband got the honey chili wings and tequila shrimp as appetizers, which were really good. I got the blackened grouper sandwich which was really good, and he got the fried chicken sandwich which was just okay. The issue I have is with the service. While the hostess was extremely friendly and pleasant, our waitress was not. She took orders for a couple before us who arrived AFTER us. Also, she just had an attitude and was not very attentive. We had to ask her to clear our plates and glasses when they were empty. Overall very disappointing service, and the food was not tasty enough for us to go back.

I went on a Thursday evening with two friends, and we wanted a leisurely meal where we could take our time and catch up. We took a table upstairs where it was quiet. Service was great. Food was delicious. I had the fish 'n' chips, and the two batter-dipped pieces of cod were thick and long and very tasty. I had creme brulee for dessert, and it was a generous serving, quite good. Another person had the brownie topped with ice cream, and she said it was excellent. We were not at all rushed and were able to sit and talk as long as we wanted. Would definitely go again.
