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.

We had anticipated sitting in the main dining area, not the bar room. It is so small that we could not sit away from the door. The main entrees were hot, but the rice and vegetables that accompanied them were colder than the room temperature. As our guests were from out of state and had fond memories of Flaherity's , we said nothing to our server. Had we been alone, we would have requested that those parts of our meal be replaced with freshly cooked meals.

Our experience was very disappointing from the start. The table wasn’t set and we ended up with an appetizer before silverware. When we asked for silverware, we were given a fork and knife and a paper napkin. The standard was a linen napkin. A service worker came through a few minutes later with a bucket of wrapped linen silverware. I asked for one and was denied. My husband ordered the Cesar salad with crab. The Cesar was served with an inedible piece of toast, a dressing lacking any flavor and tomatoes on a Cesar...he sent it back. After seeing the poor presentation of the appetizer, tuna and salmon tartare, I kept it simple with a wedge salad and a cup of Manhattan clam chowder. The server did tell me it was the last of the chowder which explains why it only consisted of broth. My son got the lobster bisque which had a very large hunk of the hard as rock bread in the cup. He ended up with about 4 tablespoons of bisque and left the “crouton” on the side. The manager did give us a coupon for 2 free entrees on our next visit. We gave it to an elderly couple outside the restaurant who seemed happy with their meal.

My wife used to visit this place often long ago. It looked good enough, but the service was really pretty slow. We had to be seated on the front patio since we had our dog with us. Food was meh. I am big on seafood, but this place did not do it for me. I might try it again, but it would not be my first choice for an evening meal.

Chaotic! They were overwhelmed. Didn't seem to matter that we had reservations or not. The service was slow and poor. Tables too close to each other. The food was delicious!

We arrived for our reservation and 2 men advised they were already closed. It was Christmas Eve and very disappointing.

We have been eating here for 20+ years when we visit Carmel, and the seafood is consistently good and reasonably priced.
