I LOVE oysters and my wife HATES them. Yet we both love coming back to this charming restaurant any time we are in Carmel. This time we were waited on by Jerad, the son of the owner. He was charming, very helpful on picking the best meal, and always attentive. My wife had the red snapper and I had the... More

Super food, lots of choice and great service. Would recommend booking or you will probably have to wait for a table. Atmosphere was great too. A real buzzing place.

The staff were very nice and accomodating. But, the food was sub par. Ordered a gnocchi dish and after about 30 minutes I was delivered a pool for something. The taste wasn't bad but the gnocchi should not be attempted by this chef again. Send him to gnocchi school. Their wine list was very small. We were very disappointed. Just... More

I have been here twice and did take out once. Food is good and they have gluten free options including fish and chips...which means they use GF breadcrumbs and fry in a separate bin. Service was good both times as well.

We arrived on a Thursday evening without reservations. We were greeted at the curb by a pleasant young woman who showed us inside to a table for two. (Flaherty’s is in two different buildings with a narrow patio in between. We ate in the restaurant on the right hand side where tables have white tablecloths.) Our guide gave us menus... More

My family and I have come here on every trip to carmel, always the best meal of the trip. The only hard part is choosing what to eat.

The seafood at Flaherty's is consistently outstanding. This time we ordered the coconut shrimp and the mixed seafood grill. The wine list is exceptional and offers many half bottles to choose from. My wife ordered a made from scratch margarita and I selected a half bottle of a local Syrah. I can't say enough about the generous food portions and... More

The food is really nice. Specifically the seafood is really good. The price was a little high but for the area it was typical

Offers seafood, soups, pastas and salads and steaks. Salads are quite reasonable. The food is delicious and filling. Fish and chips where awesome. Halibut was worth a second visit.

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.
