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

Obviously frequented by locals including caddies, golfers & local residents-the restaurant can be quite loud and vibrant, but we like the atmosphere! Many beers on tap and the cocktails are not watered down. Staff is very friendly. Food is straight forward "bar style food" but is really good. Burgers are clean tasting and 1/2 lb. Fish and shrimp tacos are... More

We ate dinner at Brophy's in late January. The bar area, which isn't separate from the dining area, was crowded. One large group of men, who may have been Pebble Beach caddies, were putting down multiple pitchers of beer amid much loud talk. Pretty much dominated the rest of the restaurant. The food we ordered was less than great. I... More

Great atmosphere, happy bar. We had a special request because of food allergies and it wasn't on the menu, but they made it work - happily. Appreciate that kind of service.

We were looking for a casual spot for dinner and checked out Brophy's, just a couple of blocks from the hotel. They have a great bar, solid list of beers on tap and a relaxed atmosphere. We had the buffalo / garlic chicken wings, and fish tacos. It was terrific!
