“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

It was evening time & we were looking for a place to eat that wouldn't cost a fortune in Carmel. At one of the downtown restaurants a worker told us of Brophy's, a place where the locals go to eat. It is on the edge of downtown & is like a pub, I believe. It is not very large & we had to wait awhile before getting any service but after the lady took our order, it wasn't long before we got the food. The food was very good & in big portions. Also, it was very reasonably priced. We are not tavern people, but all in all it was a good experience. We would go back.

“Appetizers and a chat.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

Brophy's is a wonderful pub to meet-up with friends (or make new ones) before or after dinner for a light snack. Great service and very friendly staff. Welcoming atmosphere to get the latest sports scores or to get recommendations for local places. Calamari appetizer was well-prepared and presented very well. Beverage choice...excellent.

“Pub Style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Pub food was typical but the friendly staff and warm atmosphere made it an affordable dinner in Carmel. The bonus was being able to watch the SFGiants game.

“Service here is non exsistant”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Went in on a Sunday afternoon around 4:00 PM- open tables so we grabbed one by the bar- the lady behind the bar stood and stared at with us with her hands in her pocket - did not want to come and help us at all- finally got served by another guy who was better- food average - would never return based on the poor service of the bartender and her crappy attitude
