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.

We had lunch here twice on our trip. The first time, we both had the wonderful lobster bisque and split a Caesar salad. The next, fish and crab tacos. The service was prompt and friendly.

Two of us stopped in on a Tuesday for lunch. We were quickly seated at a table and served our drinks and a basket of sourdough and butter. We wanted some oysters and our waitress suggested we get a mix of 3 different oysters and when they were brought to the table she took the time to explain each one... More

My husband and I went here for an evening out. I ordered the Seafood Louie Salad on a bed of spinach, instead of the romaine. My husband ordered a shrimp and fish curry. My salad was fine, like tuna salad on top of spinach. My husband's food was very tasty. The curry was sweet, it was mixed with a mango... More

One of the best Clam Chowders ever. Also shared a reuben sandwich which was very good.

Once they have got you in from the street, the service goes down a bit. The menu has a little of this and a little of that, and the quality of the food was really mediocre, bland, and all the tastes were so mixed in the sauce dishes that you could not taste anything.

I had a cup of the tomato/lobster bisque for lunch with a glass of Murphy Goode sauvignon blanc. Oh my, was it good!! I wished we had not made plans for a special dinner that night. I would have eaten a LOT more! We ate in the pub rather than the restaurant segment of the two buildings. The bigger crowd... More

The service at Flaherty's was all around excellent. The server was very helpful guiding us through the extensive menu. The whole meal was very enjoyable, and we topped it off with some key lime pie that they make in-house which was phenomenal. I will definitely be returning.

Drinks were weak, which was unfortunate because we did have 3 drinks apiece for a party of 5. You would think the bar staff would know better! They also used the same shaker to make our raspberry cosmos for my brother's straight martini. The staff blamed it on using the same top...duh! You used the same shaker in my opinion!... More

After reading other recent reviews, it appears that this restaurant is a better luncheon choice. We went at 7:30pm on a Saturday evening for supper. Our reservation wasn't necessary. Actually, our clams and oyster appies were not bad. Had to send back our first glass of wine, which was handled well at least. Our wait suggested an alternative and we... More
