Out with my son to visit Philly and celebrate his graduation. We sat outside and had a nice time. Only problem, the wait staff was terrible. Only 6 tables and we barely saw our waitress (no water refills, never asked if I wanted another coffee, etc).
Great service and atmosphere. Good food. Convenient location with adjacent parking garage.
The server was excellent. I will start with that. She had many tables and was still very attentive. The main issue was the Food service. We went at about 1 pm on a Saturday. I ordered the eggs Benedict and it first came out with a hair on it.. They took it back and made me a new one but the hollandaise was broken. I was hungry so I ate it anyway. Everyone at my table did not get their food at the same time. Two of the dishes came out maybe 15 minutes after mine and it was a salad and a flatbread which really should not take as long as it did. They did comp my drink to make up for the first Benedict , but it was pretty clear the kitchen was not organized or they couldn't handle the Saturday lunch crowd.. even though we had a reservation. Again, the server couldn't have been nicer which is why I still gave a decent rating, but I will not be going back. Also, being located on a busy street expect to have noise from traffic.
Great food, very fresh!!
Thanks so much! We're so glad you enjoyed it. Come back again soon!
The grouper picatta was amazing. I definitely want to go back. Friendly service and reasonable prices.
The short rib French fries were amazing! I would recommend to all!
Server was very pleasant. Food was very tasty even the plain white rice was so flavorful. I would definitely return.
The food was great, and our server was amazing! Only complaint would have to be the noise level coming from other customers that day. I was with my friend and we couldn’t really hear each other, but could hear everything from other customers.
We ate outside - based on location noise is a little tough. But food, drinks, service and value are all amazing!!
The restaurant seemed to be in accordance with the policies & procedures during the pandemic.
My wife and I have been to Con Murphy's several times before and always enjoyed it. This time we were indoors for the first time and enjoyed the atmosphere. We also tried a new
starter, Short Rib gravy Fries. It was awesome. Our entries were delicious and htey also poured a perfect pint of Guinness as Irish bar should.
Everything was great. No complaints
Thanks so much for the 5 stars! We're so glad you enjoyed everything!
The food was amazing and our server was very polite and wonderful

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience! We're so glad you enjoyed everything! Come back soon!
My wife and I were looking for a new Irish Restaurant to fulfill our casual dining needs. Some of our standbys, the Irish Pub, and Bards were victims of the corona virus. Finding Con Murphy's answered our search nicely. The food here is great, having tried brunch, sandwiches, and an Irish traditional favorite on our several visits here. Dining is only outdoors but they manage to seat the tables well affording us privacy but still utilizing the available space. Their bar menu was extensive featuring Guinness on tap and some unique Summer Drinks. My wife had the watermelon Margarita and raved about it. Service was well done. I look forward to being able to dine indoors but until then this is a great place for a casual meal in Center City.
Mark thank you so much for your kind words! While we are also saddened by the news of our friends at the Bards and Irish pub, we're happy that you found us. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed everything and we can't to serve you indoors! Thanks again, we really appreciate it!
They serve the perfect Guiness pint pour. The staff are awesome! Great Food!
Thanks so much for your kind words Justin! We take great pride in our Guinness pour! Hope to see you again soon!
Great food, great drinks, great service! Took plenty of precautions around sanitation.
Thanks for the great review Chuck! We really appreciate it!

Thanks so much for the amazing review & we're so happy you you had such a great time! Hope you visit us again soon!
My husband and I tried Con Murphy’s this past Saturday evening. We had reservations, so were seated right away. We had a really nice view of center city and Ben Franklin parkway! The service wasn’t great. Our waitress wasn’t great. She wanted to take our drink and food order at the same time, and as you might guess only came back to check on us after we were done eating. We both ordered wings and split fries, so it would have been nice for her to come by to check our water, or have just given us a water carafe. Our wings were just ok, nothing special. The fries were good, but under seasoned. We didn’t have a great experience and probably won’t be back.
Thanks for taking the time to review us. I'm sorry to hear that your experience was not great. This is not typical of our staff here, nor do we ever want to rush our guests into ordering. We also take great pride in our food and make nearly everything from scratch, including the hand cut fries. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your meal but I hope you'll give us another chance.
Great food with a variety of choices. Friendly service and warm inviting atmosphere.
Service was good. But first glass of wine was served in a lipstick stained dirty glass (quickly replaced), food portions were massive, veggie burger dry but shepherd's pie amazing. Noise level was very loud (customers not staff) live band was ok but nothing special.
Service from check in to the end of our meal was slow. Everyone at our table enjoyed their appetizers and entrees and prices are reasonable. I wouldn’t go out of my way to dine here based on the slow service.
Great Service, Great Food, Fabulous Server...we are new to the city and will make Con Murphy's Irish Pub a regular place to eat for us....
Good food and beer selection.
Food was very good. I got cheesesteak and my friend got a burger. Only thing was, it came out too fast. My friend hadn’t even gotten there yet. Service was also very good. Very friendly servers. I’d definitely come back.
Thanks very much for the review. We try to get our food served as quick as possible and usually don't receive comments about food coming out to fast. Sorry for the inconvenience. Next time, just let your server know and we will do our best to time it a little better. Thanks again and hope you visit us again soon!
Great experience here. Large menu with tons of options.
First time spending time in the city of Philadelphia and found this restaurant while walking around center city. Very please with the variety in the menu options along with traditional Irish cuisine. Staff was welcoming and provided excellent service. Food was amazing and drinks were great! Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a comfortable atmosphere with great food and fantastic staff.
This was a great stop for our weekend in Philly and kid friendly
Thanks so much for the 5 stars, we really appreciate it! Come back soon!
Great service and timely for the lunch hour - food is always good
Food was mediocre at best. It was so loud that conversation was next to impossible. Do yourself a favor and try The Dandelion a few blocks away.
Had lunch at the Logan Sq. Philly location. Real cozy place with an upstairs...always a winner with me! I had a proscuitto fig flatbread which was outstanding! I'm looking forward to going back and trying some of their Irish fair!
An Irish Pub/Bar in an upscale hotel. Great location and we were able to watch the games but the food was just okay.
Loved it! Have been there 3-4 times and it’s always a good experience.
The location was convenient. But the place is very cramped and super loud. My daughter and I were out at a table right next to the stairs which made it worse. People would go to the upstairs bar while waiting for a table, then down to meet the hostess, the back upstairs. My daughter’s burger was good. The fries are amazing. My beef stew was cold and small. I will not be going back, unless I just want a drink.
Made reservations on opentable. Moderate wait while they seated other larger groups without reservations
After the wait, service and food were very good.
Wanted something light in prep for big Thanksgiving dinner out the next day. Con Murphy fit the bill perfectly. We each had an outstanding soup and appetizers dinner with appropriate beers.
The hostess did not record our open table reservation. I got an email saying that our reservation was cancelled. At about 4:00. We were clearly there at 2:36 so I asked the person who answered the phone to contact open table to verify we were there.
