    Food was great and service was fantastic. Food prices were super high for lunch, as in other places, so I would only go once in a while as opposed to regularly.

    My friend and I dined at Con Murphy after visiting the Franklin Institute. We highly recommend the grouper bites for a starter. The shepherds pie and fish and chips was excellent. Key Lime pie was delicious, as well as the crème brûlée. Of course the Irish beers were a must! Smithwicks, Guinness and Harp are all on tap!

    My husband and I were in Philly for the 3 and 4th of July. We ate dinner on the 3rd and we enjoyed it. The price was reasonable too. We went back on the 4th and it was of course more busy right before the fireworks. I told my husband that we would be fine because the Con was crowded. I walked right in, spoke to the hostess and she took us right to our seats. Yes, it pays to have reservations!! -lol. I advise you to make yours no matter what-lol. Enjoy.

    Had a GREAT time at Con Murphy's. My wife is in a wheelchair and access was easy through the hotel it is attached to. An elevator to the second floor dining area was convenient, and we were escorted making it easier. Greeted enthusiastically at the hostess desk by Toya who was also our server. Toya was fantastic, personable, professional, and had an attitude that ensured we enjoyed every moment of our dinner. We were there celebrating our 30th anniversary weekend. Toya, another server Ziherara (sp) were fun joining in with our celebration and conversation, and the Manager, wish I remembered her name, stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary and to buy us a celebration cocktail. Perfect. Service was outstanding, food was very enjoyable, atmosphere was fun and we loved every moment. We laughed, we cried, it was better than "Hamilton"! A couple days later we topped off our stay in Philadelphia with a surprise! They do take out Cocktails!! We ordered a few, and I walked a block and a half from our hotel to the pub to pick them up!! BRILLIANT!! Thanks to everyone at Con Murphy's for making a great weekend in Philadelphia more special than we could ask for.

    First time here. Had brunch...traditional eggs Benedict and brioche French Toast. Took well over 30 mins for the food. Our server was great, very apologetic, free mimosa. But I will definitely be back. Food was great, decent prices. Ask for a strawberry peach mimosa.

    We were there for breakfast. We had eaten there before and the food was very good as it was this time. The kitchen seems to have a problem with getting the eggs to the correct consistency but the wonderful service more than compensated.

    Overall it was very nice. However the kitchen was out of the entree I wanted (& it was only 3:15!) and the Irish band was playing so loudly that my friend & I had to shout to be heard. The entrees we ended up ordering (fish & chips and Guinness stew) were very good and the Guinness itself was great. Not sure what time is a good time to go when the noise level isn’t so boisterous but I would definitely eat there again.
