Reviewed April 8, 2014

Nice Irish themed bar with good Guiness! Owners are really friendly and make visitors feel welcome instantly. The locals too extremely helpful and it is nice place to sit and have a meal and pint. Lovely outside seating and inside fireplace makes this a cozy place to relax.

“Flanagan's Pub”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Flanagan's turned out to be just the right thing for lunch with my family on a rainy day in Carmel. Conveniently located right across the parking lot from the Carmel Mission Inn, where we were staying, Flanagan's offers quality pub fare and, of course, a full bar. I enjoyed a pint and a bowl of Irish stew, my wife had the fish tacos which were quite good, and my two kids shared an order of fish and chips which was good enough that they ate it, but a bit bland. The portions were generous and the service was friendly and prompt. My son enjoyed watching a baseball game on the TV. They also have an outdoor seating area and a small pool table, which we didn't use.

Overall we enjoyed our experience at Flanagan's and would recommend it as a lunch spot.

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by my cousin who went there when she was visiting the area from New York. I was staying in the San Jose area and made the drive to Carmel for a day trip. The drive was worth it. Met the owner Joe, had awesome fish and chips, and enjoyed the great company! I definitely be back when I am in the area again!

“Average food but not for families”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We wanted to try this place for the fish and chips. While the food was decent, not great, but decent, this is really just a bar with a few tables for serving food. If you are 20-something and single, or even 30-something, this place would probably be a good hang-out, but if you are older or have kids with you, forget it. There is a pool table, darts, and sports tv. We were there early, around 4:30PM. We were greeted and someone took our order quickly. After that, the bartender/waitress spent her time sitting at the bar chatting with the guys having drinks. Again, nothing wrong with the atmosphere if you are the right demographic. The food is decent, the prices are decent. We would not go back, simply because there is no effort to make families feel welcome.

“Great bar”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Found this place by accident. It has a good atmosphere, an attentive barman and great background music. Will return there on future visits.
