Now open for the 2015 season


One of Philadelphia’s most popular summer hotspots, Morgan’s Pier is an oasis of craft beer, delicious food and incredible live music on the Delaware River Waterfront.

Named after George C. Morgan, the first person to cross the Ben Franklin Bridge, the “backyard beer garden” on Columbus Boulevard is an ideal outdoor location with plenty of alfresco seating, an outdoor bar and glorious waterfront views.

A Summer-Inspired Menu

As with the past three summers, a new chef will take control of the Pier’s menu for the season, switching up the gourmet summertime menu to suit.

This year, none other than Top Chef victor Nicolas Elmi of the highly lauded Laurel on East Passyunk Avenue will be in charge.

The spacious footprint at Morgan’s Pier will allow tons of diners to taste Elmi’s take on backyard barbecue, which will be inspired by his New England roots and his affinity for French and Japanese techniques. Highlights include peel-and-eat shrimp with togarashi butter, a kombu-cured rib-eye and pork belly tacos.

Plus, Sunday brunch returns to Morgan’s Pier, as well as a weekday happy hour and tons of great cocktails — including the return of the ever-popular Watermelon Ricky.

Check out the brand-new summer menu below:

Drinks And Live Music

As always, the bar will pour a great selection of cocktails — including the tasty Watermelon Ricky — and all-American craft beers, too, with 14 drafts, several canned brews, sangria, cocktails and wine.

Once the sun sets, dance into the night at the outdoor stage with international and local DJs along with select performances from fantastic bands. Best of all, most shows are free or ridiculously cheap.
