Came here based on reviews highlighting their good food and Gluten Free menu. Food was not good. My wife's meal was covered in bread crumbs, had to be cooked again, served after everyone else was finished (she has celiac) Service was poor and rushed.

Hi there, I am the owner of Flahertys and I am just reading your review now. I am disappointed to hear about what happened to you, and am so sorry that was your experience. I myself am gluten-free and I take these allergies seriously. It is part of the reason I have been proactive in expanding our gluten-free menus here... More

We stopped in here for lunch with our dog. They have a tiny patio with only a couple of tables for outdoor dining and you're right next to the street. But the fish is fresh and not too expensive. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos and I loved my crab quesadilla. My daughter gobbled down the entirety of her tasty... More

The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great. Our only complaint was the waitress (Russian girl) was sub par....when we were seated we were served water and bread and she didn't even introduce herself or come by for probably 15 mins. Our bread was gone and our menus were closed and we just waited... Then when she did come,... More

We visited this fish restaurant which is in the centre of Carmel to enjoy a fish dinner. Lots of choice, and draught local beers too. Good service. At first the restaurant was extremely noisy but later quietened down so became more relaxing. Oysters, and local fish, excellent meal.

This was not our first visit so compared to our last visit last year the food has lost a star so to speak. The paella was generous enough for two. My husband enjoyed the spiciness and the large quantity of seafood and sausage. I had the fresh grilled salmon. The serving was smaller than than I expected for the half... More

Beautiful, fresh local seafood however the service was a bit slow...the restaurant was busy so perhaps they were understaffed? Our hotel recommended the restaurant and the food didn't disappoint!

Lobster Bisque, Oysters on the half shell, seafood risotto and swordfish were all ordered by our table. Amazing. Wait staff was courteous and helpful. The restaurant was quite warm (a bit uncomfortable) but the food was beyond compare!

When it's salmon season on the California coast and the restaurants are receiving it fresh daily, you can't go wrong with a grilled filet for dinner. The flesh is more flaky and delicate than the farm raised fish. My filet was served with grilled red potatoes spiced with rosemary and a mix of local fresh vegetables. We chose the BBQ... More

I had their cioppino - a meal in itself - and it was excellent. While not exactly inexpensive, their cook understands seafood and every aspect of the food was wonderful.

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.
