Went here for a simple dinner and were surprised of the great food. Good choice for food allergic, could adapt the menu for me (gluten free, dairy free and no garlic).

This restaurant in Carmel is amazing. So many wonderful gluten free options with very friendly and accommodating staff. I loved the Gluten Free Clam chowder. Wish I could come here every week but a little far from Australia😊.

This is one of the best restaurants for more of the casual dining experience but no sacrifice for service or quality of food. The lobster roll is one of the best I have ever experienced. A must visit!

So the service was great, but honestly don't think we'll return. The portions are great, so if you have teens it's awesome, but if you want quality, suggest elsewhere in town.More

Description
Both restaurants, in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, have been creating daily specialties for almost three decades. At Flaherty's our fish is fresh, caught wild, and are of the highest quality. Our fresh fish is delivered to us daily, sometimes two or even three times a day. At Flaherty's, you will experience a small town, comfortable, family atmosphere, where quality ingredients and quality preparation come together with quality service.
