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.

Best seafood paella ever. Great pasta with lobster. Lovely lobster soup. Very knowledgeable waitress who gave us lots of information. We were even allowed to change our dish slightly. Great cocktails too.

We walked downtown Carmel and picked this out of the blue because of the seafood, They were busy on Thursday night so we sat outside in a small space between 2 buildings, the owner/manager took up the first table with his phone and paperwork and hawked potential customers the whole time we were there like a carnival worker,after a short...

We ate here on our first night in Carmel on the recommendation of a friend. We were very happy with the choice. We ate on the casual grill side. We had the red sangria to start and it was delicious - loaded with fresh fruit. The starter of New England clam chowder was very tasty as was the Caesar salad.... More

I loved the menu which I was told they could make almost anything Gluten-safe. They prepare pasta in their own pots for GF only pasta, they alter any recipe to make it GF safe. Our server, Sandra, was a great inspiration! I had a Lobster Melt on GF toast. And a cup of Clam Chowder! It is made naturally GF... More

With our kids grown we decided to get away for Thanksgiving, so we chose one of our favorite dog friendly community, Carmel. We wanted to catch a late dinner and as it was the holiday weekend and we had our 4 legged child, we needed a place with a patio and Flaherty's fit the bill. The food was very good,... More

We arrived late in Carmel and made the mistake of wandering around looking for a place to eat (rather than booking a table-- even on Monday nights, reservations seem to be a good call). The girl working outside Flaherty's, was trying to get people into the restaurant with very friendly chatter like, "Do you like seafood?" "Have you had dinner... More

the concept of two different styles of restaurant -- white tablecloth or casual -- with the same menu is fun. And that menu has a lot of stuff, but we only looked at seafood, which was great -- the sand dabs were rich and tasty, and the oysters fresh. The service was good. Flaherty's is a good choice in Carmel.

Arrived in Carmel at night and unfortunately we were hungry. The problem with Carmel at night is trying to figure out where you're at because there is a big absence of streetlights. Ended up going to Flannigan's. It wasn't that the service was bad, because the bartender/waiter was very accommodating. My wife ordered the baked oysters, and I must say... More

Hi there, I am the owner of Flaherty's and I am just reading your review. I am disappointed to hear about your experience, and I wish I would have been there to promptly correct it.

Excellent oysters, stuffed trout and cod ! Wonderful waiter Nicole !! She was attentive and very service minded. A small restaurant that had deserved less noisier Californian men by our neighboring table ! Would recommend the restaurant to all seafood lovers !

We enjoyed dinner here on a recent visit and would recommend it for freshly prepared seafood and good oysters on the half shell. We ate our fill, and the wine and beer selections complemented the food very well. Ask for suggestions for pairing your wine and beer with your food, and you will bet helpful assistance from knowledgeable wait staff.... More
