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.

“Nice relaxing dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

After getting into Carmel at dusk we were looking for some nice local food Dinner was delicous and the service was very good. Really nice variety from which to choose. The Salmon and Tuna Tartare was delicious though perhaps the aioli was a little overkill. My dinner companion had the seafood stew and I had the Sand Dabs, which is a mild local fish. The atmosphere was really nice, yet casual and it was friendly.

“It was delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The food was reasonably priced considering the location, my husband ordered a half dozen Oysters on the half shell and really enjoyed them. He also ordered the fish and chips which he said were really good, but the malt vinegar they give on the side to flavor it was weak tasting. I had the coconut shrimp and they were really good. Everyone else in our party enjoyed their meals also.

“Great Place for a Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by for a quick bite to carry us through to dinner. Friendly staff, prompt service and good food. We appreciated that even though we just had an appetizer we were treated courteous and enjoyed some large prawns.

“Enjoyable experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Came in for lunch while in town. My husband and I were recommended to this place by our front desk. Even though they were busy for lunch on a Saturday as should be expected being a tourist town and a weekend; staff was able to accommodate us a seat at the bar. There we enjoyed a full meal just as if we had had a table. Felt like having a light drink with our meal and ended up ordering something from their full bar. Next time in town, we'll sure come back.

“Disappointing Lunch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

My family has been going to Flaherty's since the mid 1980's. We look forward to going for lunch and dinner at least once when visiting the Monterey Peninsula. Unfortunately lunch last week was a disappointment. Service is uneven and inconsistent. Some of the silverware, wrapped in a napkin, was dirty. The Manhattan clam chowder was very good. The fish and chips had problems with the breading & the calamari appetizers were half the portion they use to be with very heavy breading. All around a disappointment. Unlikely we will be returning in the future.
