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.

This was not our first visit so compared to our last visit last year the food has lost a star so to speak. The paella was generous enough for two. My husband enjoyed the spiciness and the large quantity of seafood and sausage. I had the fresh grilled salmon. The serving was smaller than than I expected for the half... More

Beautiful, fresh local seafood however the service was a bit slow...the restaurant was busy so perhaps they were understaffed? Our hotel recommended the restaurant and the food didn't disappoint!

Lobster Bisque, Oysters on the half shell, seafood risotto and swordfish were all ordered by our table. Amazing. Wait staff was courteous and helpful. The restaurant was quite warm (a bit uncomfortable) but the food was beyond compare!

When it's salmon season on the California coast and the restaurants are receiving it fresh daily, you can't go wrong with a grilled filet for dinner. The flesh is more flaky and delicate than the farm raised fish. My filet was served with grilled red potatoes spiced with rosemary and a mix of local fresh vegetables. We chose the BBQ... More

I had their cioppino - a meal in itself - and it was excellent. While not exactly inexpensive, their cook understands seafood and every aspect of the food was wonderful.

We tried to eat here for lunch on a Friday afternoon. After we sat down waited for 10 minutes for someone to come t9 the table to great us. After still not receiving a drink order or any help we left. I agree with the other recent reviews that the staff seemed overwhelmed by the small number of patrons. Not... More

The staff seemed to be overwhelmed by an unexpected number of customers. The waitress who served our table was trying hard to seem kind, but she didn't succeed. They served us a small bowl of chowder, brought it back in and then came out again with two bigger plates hastily prepared. The chowder was good, though. The other dish we... More

We had three adult and two children (ages 6 and 3) and we all had good meals. Oysters - fresh. Beautiful lobster gnocci. Lots of kid meal choices and their food came first. Good service.

We were lucky enough to have the only table in front where our dog could join us for dinner. Fortunately it was relatively warm that evening. Service was excellent with several waiters "treating" our dog. Food was good, oysters O.K. Centrally located.

I love seafood and the restaurants in Carmel are always amazing. My standards for this restaurants were high, but they weren't meet. Now I did try them only once and for lunch. Also I had a salmon sandwich. Guess I just expected more out of this restaurant since all of my other Carmel food experiences have been wonderful. The service... More
