A local recommended this spot for the best wings in the area. They definitely were good!!! Get the Mexican style. Decent selection of beer. Food was good- the cheesesteak was surprisingly really good. True local spot right here.

When you want pizza after 10 pm in Suttons Bay, your choices are limited. Brady's Bar is open until 12 midnight, so they had that going for them. The pizza was ok- nothing really special to write about- but hey, they were open, so we...will give them 3 stars for accessibility.More

When we walked in we over heard the bar tender say he hates tourist. Then I ordered a beer and he rudely handed me my beer and walked away. I wish I would have walked away because he did not wait for my payment. Then...another worker literally walked into me and never said a word of apology. Very very rude service.More

Popped into Brady's for a cheeky beer at 7:20, left at 12:40! Super fun, sat at the bar and made to feel at home. Beer was great, conversation interesting and my dusty feeling in the morning was worth it.

Fantastic job of keeping safe during COVID. They have cut capacity, have a man at the door checking you in and use an automatic system to gather phone numbers for contact tracing. And the food is still great, especially the wings. Great pours on drinks...and affordable. Service is always solid.More

Stopped in for a late night dinner. Typical bar menu. But huge selection. Food was really good. We had a couple of pizzas. Staff was friendly. Place was packed. Took awhile to get food and drinks. Older bar. Nothing fancy but was comfortable.

This bar has been around for a while and caters mostly to locals. Tourists, of course, are welcome but it has that locals vibe to it. Being set back from the Main Street a bit, tourists don’t stroll down here too often. One room features...a bar, the one in the back has tables for larger groups and has table service. They have both draft beer and bottled beer available. I stuck with draft. They also have a pretty good bar food menu. I had cheese sticks as well as their fish and chips. Both were good and served promptly. Server was friendly and helpful. There is a large parking lot behind the building so no problems with parking. I would go back to this place.More

"Best Pizza and chicken wings in Traverse City - Hands-down!" They have a complete menu but those happen to be my favorite at Brady's. Get the Mexican Hot Wings as an appetizer then treat yourself to "Tiny Rays" pizza (It's not tiny). You'll love it....Try to eat more than two slices without feeling full. Good luck! I always tell people that like to spend lots of money at the trendy restaurants downtown that when they leave hungry, they will learn their lesson by then treating themselves to Brady's Bar menu instead.More

Brady’s is uner new management. Recently had their fish and chips at lunchtime. Ive had their bluegill before and it is wonderful. This time they had pollack. The breading was pretty soft and oily due to too cool of oil temperature. However, the fish was...tasty and the service was good.More

A gathering place for the locals. Prices are very reasonable especially for Traverse City. We had fish and chips for $8.99. A pitcher of beer was $5.00. They have two pool tables. Although this was our first time there for dinner, we have been there...for breakfast before.More

Brady's Bar is iconic. It was around before Traverse City became a household name. The bar is a good place to sit and have a drink. Food here is well crafted and tasty. Popular dishes are burgers, pizza, fried fish and more. A popular neighborhood...hangout that doesn't feel ilke a tourist trap.More
