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.

“Delicious Seafood Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The oysters on the half shell and fried calamari were fresh and delicious.
We also enjoyed Manhattan clam chowder.
Service was great!

“Reliable for excellent dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We have been coming to Flaherty's for many years. This weekend they had some large, fantastic fresh Oysters. We had a variety of things, including Cioppino, Seafood Cobb Salad and some sautéed Halibut.

“Overpriced, overlooked.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

Lobster Bisque was great. Clearly out of a can. Paella ordinary. Sea bass dry and over cooked. Look elsewhere.

Respectfully, we have won multiple awards for the West Coast Competition for the lobster bisque including this year and for our clam chowder too.

“Hospitable, but that's as far as it goes”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We arrived with children at the dinner hour. The maitre de was the best as he welcomed us. Had to ask for bread ( several times) Food took over an hour to come out & we put kids order in immediately. Server was kind & gave us dessert but the food was practically inedible. Too bad.

“Excellent food, decor was average”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The food was exceptional, but the decor was average. It's seafood restaurant was one of the best I have ever had in my life. I wish I could eat here everyday in my home town. The calamari was to die for and so was the lobster tacos. Great seafood!
