Staff were lovely and provided table service after we bought our first drink at the bar and moved to a table. It does seem predominantly a sorts bar, but they have a good choice of beer and wine available. Staff didn't seem too keen on asking a rather drunk woman to quiten down, even when a large family with young... More

Easy to find and well presented. Set on one level there's a single bar serving numerous local beers, lagers, wines. The staff are friendly and are eager to help. Sit either in a booth or on a stool at a table and watch the sport on the TVs. The menus is good and caters for veggies. Well worth a visit.enjoy.

My wife and I just got back from Carmel by the Sea. We absolutely loved the quaint town and surrounding areas. However, the food/bar/ pub scene left something to be desired. We found Brophey's and tried to go during game 6 of the NBA finals and found it too crowded so we left. We returned the next night and really... More

Great food with wonderful and nice service. Would have loved to return but we were only in Carmel a short time and had many restaurants to try.

We ate here for our first meal in Carmel and loved it. The walls are lined with vintage beer cans, and each table had a little green lamp like those featured in libraries. We found ti very warm and comfortable. The food that we had was delicious, and the staff was friendly enough.

Great place to take in a game and hang with friends. They have a mug club for locals. Feels like a authentic local neighborhood bar. Love it!

Brophy's Tavern is a grown-up version of the perfect sports bar. Great pub-fare menu, great cocktails. The beer can wall is not to be missed. This is the spot to watch the game and catch up with friends after a day of adventuring around Carmel.
