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.

“Fresh, fresh, fresh”
Reviewed August 31, 2012 via mobile

Fresh food, great service and all around great place. I just don't understand how this place can have bad reviews, even the people around us felt the same way. I had the halibut which was outstanding and oysters to start off with. My friend had salmon which she loved, and then we finished off with a piece of key lime pie. I will be back and will tell many friends about my great experience.

“Again, eat dessert first...”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

A little to noisy and chaotic to be "fine dining." The atmosphere of the restaurant seems identical to the Oyster Bar next door. OUr waitress was very knowledgeable, however, and the food was good though not great. The crab-artichoke quesadilla is a mistake (I have never thought seafood mixes well with Mexican food; at least, it doesn't mix here). The paella, while good, had too little saffron and too much tomato. The higlight was actually the dessert: ollaloberry pie. If you do go here, be sure and keep the "coupon" put on the left side of the check folder--it gives 15% off 5 other related restaurants (like Portabella's on Ocean).

“Not as good as in the past”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Only had one dish - a bowl of Manhattan Chowder. In the past this was outstanding, with a thin flavorful broth and lots of big tender clams. This time it was thick, like tomato paste, with tiny shreds of clams. Disappointed.
