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.

“Poor service; poor excuse”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Yes, customers came in at a steady flow filling up this restaurant. We were the second group in. Waited and waited to be served our meal. 4 groups got served before us and they arrived and ordered after us. The waiters excuse, "we are getting smashed." We ordered chowder and sandwich, excuse not accepted.

“Casual seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Wanted to have a light dinner, got a reservation since it was a busy weekend. Had a Crab Louie salad and it was really good, filling, plenty to eat. Their bread was great, this sweet cranberry bread was addicting as our waitress Victoria pointed out. She was a sharp, witty and excellent.
My husband had clam chowder and it was really good, not too creamy and salty.
Casual place, entrees looked expensive, but our meal was very satisfying. Wine list was a little limited especially by the glass, but I was able to get a tasty Pinot Noir.

Happy to hear you enjoyed the Crab Louie salad! We prepare it with fresh crab so that the flavor really pops. It's nice to know you appreciate it. I'll be sure to let Victoria know you appreciated her as well. Hope to see you and your husband back again soon!

Take care,

“Perfect ending to a perfect day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

We joined dear friends for our final dinner in Carmel. What a good choice we made out of the many establishments in Carmel! We had reservations and were seated promptly. Our server was Nicole and there are not enough superlatives to describe her friendliness, helpfulness, and recommendations. The food was excellent. Our friends had the filet and raved, my husband had prawns which he enjoyed and I loved the seafood Cobb salad. We were not going to have dessert until we saw the dessert menu!! YUM! Nicole saw that I received raspberry sauce over my homemade vanilla ice cream!! Now THAT is a way to end a meal! Will most definitely return.
