The drinks were well-made, and very refreshing. It was clearly obvious that the bartenders took great pride in making the drinks I would highly recommend this restaurant

Center City
About the restaurant
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 for dine in, terrible for delivery (pizza sits in its own oil and gets nasty) Great caesar salad

The atmosphere is always inviting and warm. The service (usually we have Bradley) is always excellent - attentive, friendly and personalized. The food is great. We have our favorites but there's usually something new and delicious to try. We've never had wine there but the beer selection always features quality craft selections and the cocktails are sophisticated and unique. We never feel rushed and the price is reasonable considering the quality. One of our "go-to's."

The service and atmosphere was amazing! My picky 12 year old couldn't get enough of her Birria tacos and consome! My Tamarind margarita was made perfect.

I frequent 118 North often to see Local Live Music. The staff is always accommodating. And soundguy Joe always has the room sounding fantastic. Great Value for your $$ as most bands have just a $10 cover charge. - Taper Rich

The food is delicious. They give you plenty of bread and a salad to start out your meal, which is great. Everything I've ever ordered from here has been phenomenal.

Contemporary American
About the restaurant
Please note that we will be closed on Thanksgiving, Thursday the 24th of November, 2022.

We are a progressive public house, and we believe in the idea of the "pub" mentality. Brittingham's creates a "home away from home" for our guest and staff alike.

**A note from the restaurant**
Outside seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

We take the same mantra on in the experience we plan to deliver to you! That being said we are taking it to the next level with food and drink that doesn't alienate, and great service and atmosphere that create a contemporary party! We are local, we are community, we are loyal and we are kind!

We were here on Easter for lunch with family. This was our first visit to Brittingham’s. Our hostess and waitress were pleasant, professional and very attentive. Our adult beverages were great as well as our food which was delicious! Looking forward to returning in the near future!
