Description: 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.

We had a good dinner. Portions could be a bit more generous but quality was good. But, we were really surprised went we saw they had charged us 18% gratuity in the check, despite that was not specified in the menu.

The whole family enjoyed everything from the lobster bisque and chowder to the fresh oysters and fish. The staff... More

The food is very good but likely not the best you've ever had. But, my wife and I walked in kinda late and you could tell the kitchen was about to close. They way they welcomed us, did not rush us and went out of there way to make sure we were taken care of was beyond great. Well done

Lunch - Clam chowder was average. A lot of clams but not tasty enough for me. The soft crab sandwich with pesto mayo was good. I didn't like the fact the kitchen was located in another building about 20 or so feet away. Having said that I would go back and give them another try.

This is a nice restaurant, not a comfy place though. Table are close together and it can be noisy. They do serve fresh fish and the meals are good. Their chowder is good although now and then a bit too much salt. I think they could fill their small glasses of wine to the top! Come on, you barely get... More

Stopped in late one evening while traveling thru on business. Food was excellent but service was a little slow, maybe due to it being after 9pm. Like everything in Carmel, not a cheap eat but still worth the money for the quality of food. Part of my party doesn't do seafood and had the burger, enjoyed it a lot.

and the service was great too. I had the cobb seafood salad that was excellent. My husband had an oyster stew that was very different, as well as a seafood pasta dish that he loved. The prices were probably middle range $15-20.00pp. Location was on 6th between Dolores and San Carlos. On street parking only.

Each year when I travel to Carmel, I always gravitate back to this little oyster bar and restaurant. Nika is very knowledgable about their wonderful oysters on the half shell, which they have from many different regions of the country. Will definitely be back!
