Good for Football Games

We went there for an early morning Sunday Football brunch. I did not care for the signature Egg's Benedict, but the waffle and the eggs and bacon breakfast were both good. The environment was great and the tv's were awesome. The service was great also.

A friend took me to Brophy's last week for lunch. It's a sports bar - so I expected a lot of hairy beer drinking, loud and stubble-faced boors shouting at the latest brain-damaged gazillionaire to have fumbled a football. It wasn't that at all - not at lunch anyway. It was bright, clean, quiet. There were tradesmen and even a... More

We were staying locally during a trip down the coast and wanted somewhere simple and cheapish for a drink and some food. This fitted the bill nicely. A local pub, with lots of locals and very friendly and efficient service. The food was exactly what we wanted - simple and tasty. Well cooked and plentiful. Recommended for a quick stop... More

After an expensive meal the night before, we were looking for reasonable tasty pub food. This exceeded our expectations. The artichoke fritters were wonderful and unusual, and the cheese steak the best we've ever had. Great fresh roll, perfectly cooked steak and plenty of melty delicious cheese. Great fries too. The cocktails, beer and atmosphere all excellent as were the... More

Stumbled upon this place as we were overnighting in Carmel. The food was very good although the service was slightly poor in that my wife's meal did not come on time. However they were very decent and waived the charge for her delicious Shepherds pie! My burger was excellent as was the beer so all in all a very good... More

Wow. We didn't expect such a great meal at this cool Irish pub. Had the fish tacos and salmon off the specials menu and the Steak sandwich (which was massive and awesome). Also great service from the efficient bar chicks!!!

Stopped in to watch the Seahawks game and grab a bite. It's hard to find a "sports bar" in this town. ;) Great food, service and beer. I had a French dip and it was HUGE! Thank you Brophy's.

Had some fresh poured Guinness Beer, perfect pour, with an order of Chicken sliders. Came with 3 sliders for $10, enough food for two, and they were garnished with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, mayo. They had 8 screens to watch sports, your choice of football games. Erin the waitress was super friendly and efficient in serving everyone. My date and... More

Hamburgers are YUMMY. It can get loud in there but its a sports bar. Lots of locals. If you want to visit or chat with someone this is not the place. Never had a bad meal here.
