I ate here for lunch both days of my visit to Carmel. The menu is large and both entrees I had were excellent. Good beers on tap. I was served by two different bartenders, both of whom were extremely friendly and helpful. Makes me believe that some of the catty reviews earlier about the unfriendliness of a certain bartender were... More

We didn't eat here, but just had a beer at the bar, and for that - very good. It's a cozy little neighborhood bar.

I was in town for one night and I wanted to watch the Giants game. I asked the front desk at the Best Western where to go and they suggested Brophy's. I ordered the vegetarian raviolis. It was slimy and terrible. I sent it back after two bites and they wouldn't comp it. They charged me full rate. NEVER go... More

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
