The chowder was more like potato soup than clam. Sand dabs were very good but there were only 4 small fillets. Came with rice and grilled veggies for $17 at lunch.

Mid afternoon snack. Calamari and chowder. Don't miss it. Much improved over previous visit. Get the chowder 50:50 half red and half white.

We've dined here on other trips to Carmel and have always found the seafood dishes to be delicious and well prepared. This year's trip was no difference. The location is off the main drag in Carmel so it isn't quite as hectic as restaurants on Ocean Blvd. which is a plus for us. We split the mussels appetizer and I... More

We've been many times over the past >25 years. This is the first time we really did not love the food. It was a busy night and they were doing all they could to keep up. And with our big group, some of the group were very happy with the food. Others were utterly disappointed -- Those that ordered a... More

My wife and I went there for lunch. Great staff, friendly and attentive but not hovering over you. My wife had the crab melt and I had the lobster bisque. The melt was huge with so much crab and she loved it. The bisque had chunks of lobster with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese. Thank You!

Had a really good dinner at Flaherty's with some friends. The food was amazing! Great seafood and other options. Good wine list too! It was a little loud in the restaurant but not too bad. Loved it and would return.

We had asked at the hotel, and they recommended this place. We ate on the oyster bar side...and it was casual yet elegant enough. I ordered the wedge salad with bay shrimp...didn't care for the limp shrimp. But the salad was amazing...loads of dressing, walnuts, red onions, bacon bits, and grape tomatoes circling the plate. My husband ordered the seafood... More

We sat at the bar for lunch. Service was prompt and we were able to watch a little football while we enjoyed our food and drinks. Dog friendly.

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.
