Best Bartenders!

Especially the Australian bartender Erin, she makes a mean Bloody Mary. The staff is wonderful, the food is great. It's got a bit of dive feel, but it's a great place to meet the locals and you never know what celebrity might stroll through the doors.

Coolest place in Carmel! Great sports pub atmosphere--friendly owners made us feel right at home. Tasty bar food, especially the artichoke fritters. Casual, not fancy--a pleasant change of pace from more formal (stuffy) eateries elsewhere in Carmel.

Stopped in to watch some basketball and ended up staying for dinner. Food was great, and the wait staff was phenomenal. Great crowd, and cool atmosphere. Would definitely come back.

Brophy's is very much a welcoming locals' tavern. On the edge of the central district it is worth the walk if you want to have some great tavern food. It's also very accommodating in preparing meals to go. One recent night we just had a craving for a good hamburger so decided to pick up burgers to go at Brophy's.... More

When The Dump ( Waferer Inn) didn't have a lobby restroom, the woman at the desk directed me to Brophy's. When I entered there were just men at the bar. Atmosphere was a little dark, one restroom, man exiting. Seems like a guy's place, maybe for golfers. Probably good if you're a guy, but not what ladies would appreciate. Had... More

Firstly this bar isn't easy to find, so be patient, but once you're here its worth the street searching. Its Irish themed, smart, clean and friendly. The bar staff ladies we met were Amy & Mary, great girls. They even offer us different places to eat when we asked, not many bars do that. Music was played, good choice to,... More

It's not easy to find this place if your not from the area but if you make the effort you will be rewarded, it's not fancy, it's not stuffy, and it's not flashy, but it is great, especially on a weekend morning when you need a good hangover correction. The menu is reasonable and the food is great, but the... More

Erin has a great location...Close to the main street, but far enough off that it's more locals than tourist. 6 screens broadcasting sports, great breakfast and great drinks
