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

Went in to watch my Cowboys beat the Eagles. Food was great, had the big wings which had an awesome sauce. The pork fries were amazing! Great drink selection and staff.

Brophy's is one of the places I always stop in when I am in the Carmel area. Good beer and good food. Burgers, Calamari, sandwiches and a really good Sheppard's Pie. Just a great little place to meet the boys after a round of golf or a day at the beach.

We were looking for a Pub to watch football and we found this neat little place. The pretzel & dip is a great appetizer as is the meat & cheese plate. Could be a little quicker service, but hey, it's Carmel!

Very friendly staff, nice relaxed atmosphere. We were here around 4-5pm having just arrived in Carmel from San Francisco. We were ready for a couple of drinks & some good food and Brophy's did not disappoint. Our waitress was very friendly & helpful. We ordered a great dish of slow cooked beef rib, (which was in small chunks) - it... More

Visited on our first night in Carmel as not many pubs to choose from. Bar tender was very friendly and attentive. Also offered to make up some olives as we just missed out on kitchen closing at 9pm and extended that to giving recommendations of local eateries that served later than 9pm and served good food. Shame the menu is... More

With so many with so many wine bars taking over Carmel thank God Brophy's is back open. Great bartender; sorry, forgot his name - but extremely attentive & kept the drinks flowing, the counters clean, and delicious food !! We couldn't ask for a better time, just wish the 49ers would have played better!!!

Part of Hotel Carmel. Friendly service and good food. Cost of soda water much higher than the UK at $3 to $4.
