Tourist trap. This isn’t high quality food. It’s got to be that the rating is as high as it is because they’re full of people who simply don’t know what they’re talking about. I’m a foodie who lived in SF for 10 years and now lives in Napa. My mother in law is a chef. I know food. The “award winning lobster bisque” was boring. The fish and chips were all soggy, heavily breaded fry, with hardly any fish; truly not something we wanted to eat. The fried artichokes were thick tasteless chunks. The fish tacos were soggy and flavorless. The mussels in the cioppino smelled like crap. Even the margarita seemed to be made with cheap mix. Everything was flavorless, uninspired, poor quality. I was angry. We paid too much for that. It felt like we had been duped. I don’t want anyone else who actually cares about experiencing a good meal to fall for it too.

Very poor service if you are using a Groupon Manager/owner does not care for your business. If you go, don’t use the Groupon and you will be treated better

Highly recommend Flaherty’s! Cioppino was delicious and stuffed full of so much seafood. Had an amazing selection of gluten free options. Our server, Sandra, was so nice and attentive.

Walked in off the street and emerged very happy. My wife had chicken Caesar. I had benedict made with crab (instead of salmon) by special request (small extra charge). Both were delicious. In fact, I thought the food was fine dining worthy although served in a casual atmosphere. Prices appropriate, service accommodating and attentive. Serendipity.

This is not somewhere to go for good fresh fish, despite their menu and the way they present themselves. I had their fish medley, and (what a surprise) the fish of the day was the cheapest option (cod). And it plus the accompanying prawns and scallops all came out deep fried. Not battered, just thrown in the oil to cook, rather than doing it the proper way. Didn't complain as there was no point - a restaurant that would do this isn't going to suddenly pan-fry me a fresh meal. On the plus side the service was good and the clam chowder was decent, if slightly sweeter than ideal. But for the price point I expected far better.

We found this gem of a restaurant by chance on a visit to Carmel. Since I have food allergies I'm always a little bit worried I won't be able to have any of the dishes when I go to a new restaurant. At Flaherty's both our excellent server Rodney and the chef were extremely helpful and changed the dishes to suit my needs. I had the bbq oysters for my starter. They were heavenly! Salty, cheesy and buttery goodness. For my main course I had shrimp tacos. Generous amounts of giant succulent grilled shrimp with soft lovely avocado. Fresh and delicious. My wife had a very tasty seared tuna that that was served with a delicious wasabi sauce. Rodney was very friendly and professional and did go above and beyond what can be expected. He even gave us complimentary cookies as we left. Would definitely go back if given the opportunity. I can absolutely recommend a visit to Flaherty's Seafood grill and oyster bar.

Not really great. Fish (Dabbs) was tasteless and quesadillas done without any sizzle. Food took a long time to come to the table, even tajar it was Monday and the place was not that busy.

We had high hopes for this restaurant based upon the reviews. The service was poor! I order lobster bisque because of the great reviews, but it was extremely salty! Couldn't eat it! The server then brought me clam chowder which was equally bad! We had the grilled salmon and sand dabs. These dishes were OK, but the steamed veggies tasted like they were cooked in dish water! Awful! The best part of the meal was the bread and butter and my glass of wine. Would not recommend this restuarant!

Walked through Carmel and came across this place as it was Fourth of July and the restaurant we wanted was closed. First impressions weren’t great. The guy at the front wasn’t the most welcoming and felt like he was doing us a favour We were seated and thankfully everything after that was very positive. We ordered the Sea Dab which is a flat fish and a local wine (Chardonnay ) Our server was Sandra who was a fantastic host. She looked after us really well. Her hospitality and the food were are great mix. The only reason for not giving it five starts was because of fhe attitude of the bloke on the door.
