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

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!
