One of Philadelphia’s most popular warm-weather 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 Benjamin Franklin Bridge, the “backyard beer garden” on Columbus Boulevard is an ideal outdoor location with plenty of seating, an al fresco bar and glorious waterfront views.

A Summer-Inspired Menu

Each season, Morgan’s Pier picks a new chef to take control of its kitchen for the season and plan out the newest gourmet summertime menu.

This year, two different talents will hold down the fort – Kevin D’Egidio and Michael Griffiths, owners and chefs of Helm and South Helm.

The chefs-in-residence will focus on seasonal dishes that utilize ingredients from local urban farms and will create a rotating menu inspired by the farms’ continuously changing harvests. Guests can look forward to vegetable-centric items like tempura fried leeks, which can be ordered as single items or as a tasting of three, alongside meatier eats, like brown sugar glazed ribs.

Morgan’s Pier will also roll out an ice cream custard and agua fresca stand this year. Get ready for salted caramel bourbon shakes and other adult milkshake options.

Drinks And Live Music

As always, the bar will pour a great selection of drinks, too, including dozens of draft and canned beer options, alongside other spirits from its draft wine and cocktail system.

Once the sun sets, dance into the night at the outdoor stage with international and local DJs along with select performances from fantastic bands. Nearly every night of the week brings some sort of live entertainment and, best of all, most shows are free or ridiculously cheap.
