Perfect summer dining and nightlife on the Delaware River Waterfront
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
Chef David Gilberg is taking over the menu for 2014, the venue’s third year. What can diners expect? A seasonally aware, summer-inspired menu of little neck clams, piri piri chicken, mushroom banh mi and crispy chicken sliders in addition to classics like lobster rolls, pulled pork sandwiches, grilled vegetable kebobs and more.
And with room for more than 300 alfresco diners, there’s plenty of space for folks to dine under the sun (or under the stars).
Plus, Sunday brunch returns to Morgan’s Pier, and brunchgoers can expect made-from-scratch biscuits from Chef Gilberg’s pastry chef wife, Carla Goncalves, smothered with all manner of sweet and savory toppings.

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.
