We both really wanted fish and chips. Flaherty's has the most crispy on the outside and moist on the inside fish and chips ever. Can't wait for our next trip.

We enjoyed a seafood dinner of mixed grill seafood and a grilled salmon dish. The mussels in the mixed grilled seafood were dry, but the fish in the mixed grill and the Salmon dish were nicely cooked. Service was friendly and attentive.

Despite not being one of the top rated Carmel restaurants, we were very happy with our dinner. Delicious white sangria. Excellent seared scallops with crab risotto. We ended with an amazing Chocolate Decadence cake. Worth the trip!

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.
