We live in town and come here often. The food is surprisingly fresh and is not the typical heavy, fried bar food. The Cobb salad is outstanding and their fish and chips is the best in town. Your can't go wrong with any one of the burgers or the tomato soup for smaller appetites. The only caveat is that, like... More

Surprised to find this friendly tavern attached to our hotel. Staff is great, we just had some snacks but all were tasty. Cocktails were strong and not too expensive. Good little find off the main strip.

Brophy's is a comfortable tavern in downtown Carmel. It is a few blocks off of Ocean Avenue but worth the walk. It is essentially a sports bar with a good menu. The food was very tasty and I will definitely go back here.

We went to Brophy's for a bite to tide us over until dinner and were not disappointed. We shared some truffle fries, a giant pretzel and the cheese platter. Everything was delicious - we wished we didn't already have dinner plans elsewhere! Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely eat/drink there again!

Cozy atmosphere, great televisions for watching games and terrific sound system that somehow manages to give great volume without being deafening. Nothing worse than a bar where you can not have a conversation, that won't happen here. Food is genuine cooking not typical bar food. Calamari is fresh. Pork wings well cooked - get sauce on side of you don't... More

We had just driven up from So Cal and were looking for a "relaxing, casual place with a bar". Thanks to the staff at Coachman's for recommending this! It is definitely a "local pub" as evidenced by the marked beer mugs hanging over the bar. The bartender - Rob - was OUTSTANDING! He welcomed us with a friendly hand shake,... More

My husband and I went in for a few drinks after dinner before heading back to our place. We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly and attentive. We ordered a few beers with a couple of shots which were extremely generous in portion. The atmosphere feels like a local bar in a town where people would go... More

We were staying in town for Thanksgiving week and wanted to watch the Raider game on MNF. It was televised from Mexico City and my husband is a HUGE Raider fan. We found Brody's and while their TVs are not super huge, their food, bar and service was excellent! Everyone was so friendly and the bar tender was willing to... More

When I was coming out of my hotel, I was looking for somewhere comfortable with a bit of atmosphere, to soak up the enjoyment of Thanks Giving Day in Carmel by the Sea, when I spotted Brophy Tavern...... Well lit up, warm and inviting. The food was simplistic, fresh and extremely well presented.... ... After a few drinks, I settled... More
