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.

Stopped in on a Sunday afternoon figuring we would get lunch and watch the 49ers, game starting at 1pm. Came in at the end of the morning games and the place was inexplicably filled with Ravens fans. Had a great time watching them eke out a win against the jaguars with the crowd. The food is very very good, esp... More

Pretty good food at pretty good prices, for Carmel. Lively and loud. Waitresses get a bit overwhelmed when it gets busy. Good place for watching sports and getting tavern type food.
