We came here for a late lunch. We had a burger with truffle parmesian fries, and a grilled cheese with tomato bisque. Everything was delicious and the service was very friendly.

We went as the offer is relatively poor in Carmel. The place is ok but nothing exciting. The place is very loud and you will probably have to wait before getting a table.

Last night our group of 4 enjoyed an awesome meal at Brophy’s Tavern. The pigs wings and giant pretzel were were great. The hamburgs and fish and chips were also delicious. The place was busy and we enjoyed the atmosphere.
