We each ordered the Brady's cheese burger medium rare and they came that way! EXCELLENT. It is so rare a burger is cooked like I like it. Places always ask but it always comes beyond well done. Well not here! Two beers, two burgers and two fries all perfectly cooked. Yes I will return.

Had dinner and a couple of drinks here. Standard bar fare in an old bar feel. Nothing fancy here. The server was attentive and provided good service and chatted with us, some of her off the cuff comments may offend gentle souls, but we had some good laughs and enjoyed our stop in. Not on the top of the return... More

This is a great place for a burger or a sandwich. Total whole in the wall but a great late night place to stop. Take out available too.

Typical old style bar, nothing fancy. Wings are great, nacho was dynamite. Drinks very reasonable. Nice atmosphere.

We stumbled upon this place by accident and decided to try it for a quick lunch. Warm ambience and welcoming wait staff. Not pretentious like many of the places in Traverse City can be. Just a comfortable neighbor hood hangout. Lot's on the menu and all is home made. Waitress was honest in telling us the most popular items. Loved... More

When was the last time you had breakfast in a bar ? For me it had been a while, but Brady's will make you want to come back. Calm and quiet at 0930, my brother and I slipped in for breakfast. We both went with the Brady's Special, potatoes scrambled with eggs, bacon and cheese. Delicious ! I tried a... More

Good food in a nice bar in downtown TC. Sunday nights they have a broasted dinner special and also be sure to try their breaded wings. They were huge and delicious.

Just stopped in to watch some football, have a beer and got the chili. It was good. Don't know that I would drive across town for if but if in the area would stop and have it again.
