At Flaherty's...Fish is Everything! We know good seafood, we know how to buy it and we know how to prepare it. Unlike most restaurants (even the best of them) where fish is often a secondary item on the menu...at Flaherty's it's all about seafood. Here, you will experience a small town, comfortable, family atmosphere, where quality ingredients and quality preparation come together with quality service. We also include gluten free items in our menu to provide all of our customers with the best service possible. It's who we are...come and experience seafood like it was meant to be.

Great seafood in Carmel.

Excellent, fresh seafood. Attentive service at a reasonable price. Lunch is the best time to go. Dinner is good; but, is very noisy. Oysters and fis tacos are very good.

We went there with kids, we ordered lobster and pasta as main and it was really disappointing. The fish tasted like carton box and the smell wasn't that good either. We also got some pasta, but it was to stuffy and filled with too much sauce (i don't like canned tomatoes but what can I do, I should start asking... More

Unfortunately I can only give them 3 stars, this is only my second time dining here and the first time was definitely much better. Service was good and better then 3 stars but this is based on the main dish. My girlfriend and I both ordered the lobster tacos-the waitress raved about them and being that the seafood I had...

When we checked into our hotel, I asked the guy at the front desk for a restaurant recommendation. He recommended Flaherty's and we were not disappointed. Fabulous food, service. We highly recommend!

We were really disappointed by this tourist trap recommended, surprisingly, by our ranch where the restaurant is superb. The waitress was lovely but the owner one of the rudest I have ever met and the food overpriced and disappointing. We were looking forward to wonderful fresh fish and everything was mushy and drowned in sauce. A shame as Carmel is... More

Had a light meal...cup of Lobster Bisque and a glass of wine. Perfect meal for late in the evening after traveling.

I ordered the seafood paella. It was a large portion but the rice was a little too wet. The seafood was fresh and good. The calamari was average . The clam chowder was good ! The stuffed trout was okay. The restaurant itself was small and atmosphere was pleasant. The staff was friendly. The food wait time was about 30... More
