We chose Flaherty's as it was walkable from where we were staying for one night in Carmel and prices were in our range. Food was acceptable. Service seemed a bit slow. But what really overshadowed the whole dining experience was the wine glasses had dried red wine residue - we were drinking white wine. Wait staff handled the situation well... More

Flaherty's is a busy, unpretentious, casual restaurant just one block from Ocean blvd, in the center of touristic Carmel. There are a few outdoor tables, but most seating is inside, divided in two adjacent dining rooms. Service is friendly, unsophisticated and spotty. The food is good, but not outstanding or unusual. The calamari appetizer was very good as was the... More

This is an excellent seafood restaurant. We started with a bowl of lobster bisque. Growing up in Cape Cod I appreciate really good lobster bisque. This was really good with an above average amount of tender lobster. The wedge salad was fresh, cold and crisp. The Blue Cheese dressing (on the side) and crumbles were plentiful and real. The highlight... More

As already in the area and stopped in for a quick bite. On hindsight I wish I had tried the oysters. I found the food to be average but adequate.

We can't attest to the quality of the meal offerings here, but we can highly recommend the bar for drinks and oysters. They offer fresh West Coast and East Coast oysters, served with a perfect balsamic shallot vinaigrette. They are delicious—we had four different varieties and recommend that you try them all. The offerings change from day to day, as... More

Stick to the drinks and oysters here. We were consistently disappointed with the food at our table of four. Lots of cheap fillers in the seafood dishes that could be considered misleading from the menu description. But, the service was great and the ambiance lively and fun.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. They are dog friendly with a seating area in the breezeway. It was cool outside but the heaters made it quite comfortable and dry under the covered area. From our seats, we could watch the basketball playoff game through the window which was an unexpected bonus! The oysters were very tasty, the... More

We only had oyster shooters and alcohol. My martini was good, I loved the two olives! My buddy is on a bourbon expedition. Not sure what he had but it put a smile on his face. Oysters were a bit small.

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.
