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.

Great Seafood in Quaint Carmel

Our party of four dined here on New Year's Eve and had an awesome meal. The oysters (my favorite Kumumoto's) were to die for and the fish and risotto entrees that we ordered were tasty, good-sized portions. The servers were attentive and engaging and added to the enjoyment of our evening.

I loved this place. Great atmosphere and great staff. I loved the food here. Normally you would think you have been to one seafood restaurant you have been to them all, but no not here. The chef here whoever he is does an amazing job with the sauces and cooking the fish perfectly. I had the salmon dish while my... More

Brandon, Thanks for your review. I'm happy to see you enjoyed your visit! I'll be sure to pass your compliments along to the kitchen. They work hard and will be thrilled to hear them.

We spent three days in carmel trying the clam chowder at almost every restaurant we went to - and Flaherty's has the best, hands down! The rest of our food was good as well - but the chowder will be remembered.

There were four of us and none of us finished our meals. The only only enjoyable dish was an appetiser of fresh oysters. The main meals were really poor. I don't know if the problem was poor quality ingredients or bad cooking or both, but this not a place to go to for good food.

We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary here, and truly felt that our dinner here was the best dinner we ever had for our anniversary celebration! The portions were perfect, and the salmon could not have been better! It was moist and flavorful. The side servings of vegetables were really tasty, and cooked to perfection. The staff was wonderful, accommodating and... More

This had always been our favorite lunch spot.... But it went through a rough change in staff/management and slid downhill badly. Yay! It is back. Chowders were better than ever. Wait staff was friendly and on top of things. Oysters and calamari were perfect. Welcome back, you were missed.

I have never left this place dissatisfied. It's a great place to take the family or clients and a popular spot for the locals. Good reviews for a reason.

For the price of the food, the entrees were mediocre at best. The hostess did her best to assist in the dining experience. Our waitress on the other hand could have cared less. We were treated as if we were not welcome.

The restaurant was quaint and had the Carmel feel. It is not one of those trendy contemporary restaurants, but more of a restaurant that you would find at a wharf. If you are looking for one of those trendy restaurants this is not the place. This has more of the rustic sailor boat feel and the ambiance goes quite nicely... More
