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.

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

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

Great spot for lunch while strolling through downtown Carmel. Very good seafood. Also very casual setting, with the maximum number of tables possible squeezed into the very small space.

As a traveler, I generally have high expectations, especially for destinations known for their cuisines. Also, because my daughter is allergic to gluten, eating out is often a challenge. Flaherty's was amazing. The cioppino oysters I had were perhaps the best I have ever experienced. My wife had the seafood louie, which according to her was fantastic! I will definitely... More

The restaurant is dog friendly...real plus! The food consistently fresh and well prepared. One visit service was lacking in attitude and fine points in service. Owner was made aware and invited us back on his tab!

I had ordered salmon and past. Can't go wrong with that. While yes it was tasted the salmon was over cooked. Can't complain to much. The one problem I had was that my husband's dish the tomato sauce used to make the base was canned. The waiter took forever to get back to us so we can get our check... More

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.
