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.

I used to eat here over 20 years ago when I lived in the area, and I loved their seafood. This time I had the Original New Orleans Po' Boy which I have never tried. It was very good. And, the French fries were so good. As I was leaving, I talked with two tourists who were outside and convinced... More

Staff were really nice and friendly. Very attentive to all tables despite of being full house. Food: My bf and I shared lobster bisque soup, it is very rich & creamy. Definitely one of the best food in this restaurant. Then he got fish n chips, he personally thinks that the Flaherty's makes the best fish n chips. The batter... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner last night and was greeted by a super friendly hostess. Since we came in with our dog, we were seated outside but since the night was just perfect we did not need the heaters that are available. Food and service were phenomenal, I really appreciate all the attention and prompt service. My friend and I... More

We were hungry and had read a good review of this restaurant. Not so!! No atmosphere to speak of, service was just okay, and out of 6 people, 2 meals were good. The fish and chicken curry and rice was pretty good. I ordered scallops and risotto. I don't know how you can mess up scallops, but they managed it.... More

We had a hard time figuring out what to have. There were so many choices that sounded great. We started with oysters that were nice and big - about as big as Gulf oysters. We shared a bowl of Manhattan clam chowder (they have both styles plus other chowders). I had an excellent swordfish steak over very nice gnocci and... More

We ate at the Seafood Grill. Excellent service by Michael. It was quiet when we first got there so had a chance to chat with Michael who was extremely nice. The seafood was delicious. We had the clams/mussels combo for an appetizer and entrees of fish curry and seafood jambalaya. All dishes were full of seafood and generous portions and... More

Sounds like Michael really went above and beyond on your last visit -- I'll have to thank him for his hard work. Next time you're down in California, we'd love to see you again.

Came in for dinner with my family and enjoyed this restaurant very much, no wonder they have been in business for so long. I had the European scampi on the dinner menu and my wife had their seafood Cobb salad. We each had a little bit of each other's since they both looked so good. They also have a kids... More

We both enjoyed the evening specials. Mary enjoyed a fresh halibut and I appreciated a fish risotto. The regular menu was large and sounded delicious. Wine was fairly priced. The bread provided with dinner was delicious. Reservations are a must if you're eating after 6:30.

If you want seafood, you have to try Flaherty's. This was my 4th time here and it was time they deserved a review. So I am going to say this, if you want good food and not all that posh posh, this is the place for you. This is definitely the spot for the locals which is a good thing... More

We have been to this restaurant numerous times and returned because we enjoyed the food and the convenient location in Carmel. We will probably not bother to return because there are so many good restaurants in the area. The service was horrible. We should have recognized that it was going to be bad when both the host and the busboy... More
