Disappointing experience at Flaherty's. Found it on Open Table and had high hopes, but inattentive, bumbling service, and expensive, decent but not-spectacular food made this a place we are happy to have in the rearview mirror.

Stopped in for an early dinner around 5-ish, I was the only person in the restaurant. I sat at the bar as they had Anthony Bourdain on the TV behind the bar, I ordered a dozen Fanny Bay oysters, Manhattan Chowder to start and a glass of Albarino from the Bilbao, Spain, area. All were fantastic! The bartender was very... More

We actually came in for just a little later evening snack (after having a large lunch earlier in the day). Great selection of breads to accompany the dinner. The clam chowder was very good with lost of clams. Their seared Ahi was delicious - done just right. They also have one of the best selections of whiskeys in all of... More

There are two "sides" to this restaurant, with separate entrances, but the menu is the same in both. The one on the left is the "Oyster Bar", and the "Seafood Grill" is on the right. The Grill has table cloths, and lower lighting in the evening. Waitresses seem to work both sides, and there is only one kitchen, so expect... More

Grabbed a quick lunch. Friendly staff, very helpful for oyster newbies, and they were delicious! Dabs were very good as well, nice roasted veggies included. Nice place.

On a cold winter day, found ourselves looking for a nice quaint restaurant to eat lunch while in Carmel. We found a very busy Flaherty's Sea Food Grill and Oyster Bar. A small restaurant full of locals and tourists, we found a spot at the bar and settled in for some fun and good food. The restaurant is small and... More

This is a really interesting location- split between two buildings with some outdoor seating between the two. The staff is super nice with a good balance between attentive and ignoring. The food is very good with an "ok" wine selection. One highlight of the wine list is Folktale Winery- a local wine. Their markup on this wine is next to... More

The food was delicious, and so was the service! I would definitely come back to Flaherty's if i'm in Carmel again. I recommend the oysters. They also had a great wine and food selection.

My husband and I went there for dinner on the 22nd. The oysters were great, we each had a dozen. My husband had a regular wedge salad and I had a crab wedge salad. Delicious and so generous we couldn't eat another thing. Service, wonderful. The Mermaid Mai Tai is delicious. Nice wine withe oysters, we left very happy and... More

Never made it to our table! Made reservations through open table for 8:30 arrived at the restaurant at 8:15 to be told by a very rude man that there we closed! A call to let us know would have been nice! Would not try it again for sure there are too many other wonderful options in the area!

Thank Dinkharris

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.
