Philadelphia's backyard beer garden
where you can enjoy a brew with a view...
Morgan’s Pier is named after George C. Morgan, a construction worker on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge 85 years ago, who is credited as being the first person to cross the bridge. He defied his boss' orders and shimmied across the wires before the deck was completed.
Each season, Morgan’s Pier, Philadelphia’s seasonal backyard beer garden along the Delaware River Waterfront, invites a different celebrated chef to take over the kitchen with their own version of a chef-hosted backyard barbecue, allowing a larger population of Philadelphia and its visitors to enjoy the casual cuisine while soaking up the outdoors and its scenery just steps from the Ben Franklin Bridge. In 2015, Morgan's Pier was named "Most Popular Bar in Pennsylvania" by Buzzfeed.
