We'd got a nice table in the dining room thanks to a nice hostess at the front door, otherwise we've offered to eat at the bar with a TV football on... b/c there was some sort of group event in the main room. Turned out, the group was small and their event was coming to the end, so the noise... More

Wonderful, thoughtful server who provided a gluten-free menu and went over options with my spouse. Having gluten-free bread was a big plus for her. Food was tasty -- a step below "foodie/gourmet" level, but fresh and well-prepared.

The food was actually good, but small plates, the wine was nice, but the personnel seems to be boring exempt one of them that give his best to satisfy us overreacting. Finally was very expensive and I always leave good tip, but I hate the tip to be automatically to my bill.

The recent upgrades are good ideas but this is about seafood dining. Chef Frank practically grew up in Flaherty's and is a master seafood specialist. And if it's Monterey Spot Prawn season Frank will have them (sweeter more succulent than any 2 lb. Maine lobster) will change your world. Okay, it will be a high point of your week/month! .

We have always loved Flahertys for lunch but they have added cute outside patio tables so our dog can dine with us. Great idea guys! Thanks. Outdoor heaters made it comfy in December.

The chowder had been superb in the past. Today it was placed in the microwave prior to serving. How did we know b/c we heard every time the microwave door was closed and we sat near the front door. Ceramic bowl was hot but not the soup. Took forever to get one refill on water and have the soup reheated.... More

I had dinner here, after going into town and asking some locals which restaurant they would recommend for seafood. I had the crab encrusted halibut, which was delicious. The service was average, but the food made up for it.

We came in here for apps and a drink while visiting art galleries. We wound up ordering the lobster bisque, clam chowder, and cocktails. All were wonderful. The lobster bisque is award winning, and that must be partly because it's loaded with lots and lots of lobster chunks. The clam chowder is similar, very thick and filling. Their cocktail specials...

They have a long wait to get in (because of seating space, not desire to eat great food). We went on their wait list for 45 minutes only to find that there was not a large menu selection. the food was good, but with the wait, it felt like we should have been dining in an upscale restaurant. It was... More

great place for lunch or dinner with your puppy. Heated outside dining. Lobster chili is fantastic and paired with yummy cornbread.

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.
