Go where the locals go and check out Brophy's Tavern. In a town a bit over-filled with posh frou frou places, this was a refreshing change with nice unpretentious and friendly folks. We sat at the bar and were served by Jake who was great. Try the turkey burger which is unbelievably flavorful and moist. So often these are bland... More

Nice adult pub - good atmosphere. Not so happy about the " Up The IRA" and "Orange Bomb" cocktails on the menu. Maybe they should add an "Alqeada Surprise" and "Twin Tower Bomb" as they think terrorism is so funny!

I went again to Brophy's, for the food and excellent beer selection. A steak sandwich - which elsewhere would be called a steak plain and simple, was excellent as always, and came with a great clam chowder. All at exactly half the price anywhere else in Carmel. Someone was mentioning that it's like the Cheers bar - and the third... More

Spent 2 nights in Carmel and was glad we found this great pub. Waitress fantastic. Good food and plenty of it. Really nice menu--lots to choose from. Had doubts when we walked in but it turned out to be a great place to spend the evening.

Great wines for a change in a bar like this and able to use wifi if you can find a quiet table or sit by the window. Terrific spot to watch the game.

My husband & I were shopping in Carmel & wanted a "pub" type place to grab a beer. I used google & found this place...so glad I did!!! We ended up staying a few hours & had several beers & the most delicious wings ever(if you love spicy). The waitress was so friendly & we have officially added this to... More
