Best Calamari Ever!

Packed for dinner last night we ended up here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. We tested clam chowder against our 6 weeks of chowder tastings in New England and we can say it comes in a string 11/10. The calamari is tender and comes in a serving suited for 2. Crab cakes... Excellent. We'll be... read more

Upon arrival we were greeted immediately by a young lady on the sidewalk, good start. Seated almost immediately also. Keep in mind this was a Monday night. Waiter took some time to get to us (not busy). Was not overly friendly. Ordered drinks, took awhile and forgot the water we asked for. In addition he brought me a beer and... More

I've lived in Carmel for more than 30 years. Flaherties has always been here - pretty much the way it can be found today. I have a respect for stylistic longevity so long as it maintains its freshness ... no, let's make that so long as it makes the effort to reinvent its legacy as if it were again its... More

Mom's choice since she's a native. I provided the wheels and the pocketbook not sure I would have picked it . . . The bar seems to be the spot for a late breakfast for locals. The tender knew everyone and none of them used a menu. There seemed to be some hangovers present and if the state allowed it... More

This place was a total surprise. My wife and I were spending a long weekend in the Carmel/Monterey area and were recommended, by a local shopkeeper, Flaherty’s as THE place to eat. He was not wrong. It’s located just off Ocean Ave in downtown Carmel. It is a small place and reservations are advised, but the food is outstanding. We... More

The best lobster bisque I have ever had. Very good service. Crowded tables and difficult to find parking.

Had the classic Prawn Italiano. Fresh tomatoes and artichokes with perfectly cooked prawns. Excellent balance of all ingredients including pasta. Husband had the sole special and expressed the same feelings. Service was very warm and welcoming. Will return next time we are in Carmel.

Stumbled across this place when looking for somewhere to dine in the rain and was not disappointed. The staff were lovely and gave us some great recommendations for wine and food. Had so fresh Oysters to start, with horseradish sauce which I had never tried before and yummy fish dishes. I think our whole party had seafood mains, I tried... More

Had a delicious dinner here. The clam chowder was the best I've ever had! Very flavorful and delicious. Not fishy tasting. Clams were very tender. Delicious Sea Bass special. We definitely recommend !

We had a late lunch in this casual dining restaurant. I had the Sandabs which were outstanding, and my son had the fish curry which was average. Service was excellent, and we would go back again.
