Great fish and chips. They also have a nice children's menu as well. Our server was Sandra she was very quick and nice. This is within walking distance to lots of shops and the ocean.

Excellent seafood, would definitely recommend this restaurant to seafood lovers. They were more than willing to make any changes to the dish that some of our friends requested.

My husband and I have eaten here a few times before and were very happy with the overall experience. This time we were seated quickly at the end of the bar. Michael was behind the bar and greeted us soon after we were seated. My husband ordered a beer and I was looking at the wine list. I told him... More

On an extended weekend trip to Monterey and Big Sur, we stopped for a mid-afternoon late lunch at Flaherty's. I had the sesame-crusted ahi tuna salad and my friend had the lobster bisque. Both dishes were just superb (!) and the staff was very engaging and friendly, ready with suggestions if one couldn't make up one's mind. It was a... More

I used to eat here over 20 years ago when I lived in the area, and I loved their seafood. This time I had the Original New Orleans Po' Boy which I have never tried. It was very good. And, the French fries were so good. As I was leaving, I talked with two tourists who were outside and convinced... More

Staff were really nice and friendly. Very attentive to all tables despite of being full house. Food: My bf and I shared lobster bisque soup, it is very rich & creamy. Definitely one of the best food in this restaurant. Then he got fish n chips, he personally thinks that the Flaherty's makes the best fish n chips. The batter... More

Visited this restaurant for dinner last night and was greeted by a super friendly hostess. Since we came in with our dog, we were seated outside but since the night was just perfect we did not need the heaters that are available. Food and service were phenomenal, I really appreciate all the attention and prompt service. My friend and I... More

We were hungry and had read a good review of this restaurant. Not so!! No atmosphere to speak of, service was just okay, and out of 6 people, 2 meals were good. The fish and chicken curry and rice was pretty good. I ordered scallops and risotto. I don't know how you can mess up scallops, but they managed it.... More

Description
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.
