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.

My girlfriend and I went in for dinner, sat at the bar, turns out you can order from the full menu here too! We just went in for some drinks but ended up grabbing some fresh oysters on the half shell and even some dessert. My gf loved their creme brûlée as she'd never tried it in chocolate. She really...

Came in for lunch and had the short ribs and clams dish from their specials sheet. Served in a cassoulet with roasted carrots, green onions in a clam broth. Meat was nice and tender. A dish I would've never thought about to combine together but overall was delicious.

Had a meal for 2 at Flahertys in Carmel 2 days ago. We'd booked but wanted to eat earlier, they accommodated the change so tick, vg. However, the food was bland; the wifes Sprouts were cold & undercooked, Her Sea Dabs were miniscule and tasteless! I ordered what I thought would be a fairly large meal, the mixed seafood grill...........it... More

It's surprising to hear that you were so let down across the board. Bland is certainly not what we're going for, so thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. I'll be sure to pass that along to the kitchen and see what we can do to kick things up a notch. All the best, Kenneth, Owner More

The staff was very friendly and welcoming, treated us like old friends. The service was also very quick. The linguine and clams I had was the best I have had. My husband had the calamari steak and he said it was wonderful. For dessert we shared the apple tarte with vanilla ice cream - I'm not usually a pie person... More

Die finely recommend for the oysters. Better than A.W. Shucks. The oysters were fresh, the mignonette was very good. The service was good and very friendly. The server also served as bartender, did not know how to make an old fashioned, had trouble with the house speciality cocktail. Did not have the ginger infused vodka it called for, the margarita...

I ordered shrimp salad, which is so special and delicious. The cabbage was the whole ball mixed with cool sauce and shrimp. I love it. The waitress Carlo is very nice with good service. Highly recommend it !

Flaherty's comes up in most Google searches for seafood restaurants in this area so we were intrigued. We went in for cocktails to peruse the menu and decided to give it a shot. I must say, the hostess was very warm and friendly and we felt completely welcome. The guy behind the bar was also welcoming but a bit more... More

You know, my wife located this one kinda off the beaten path, and it was well worth going to. Service price and food all excellent. When I say sleeper, I'm being positive as its not as well publicized as some of the other Carmel restaurants, but certainly worth your time to try it out. You wont be disappointed..

Had a very nice dinner at the bar with my adult kids. Seared tuna appetizer was delicious, and they have a wonderful selection of wines. Service was very good, and it didn't break the bank. Would recommend this highly and would go back again.
