The food we had at Flaherty's was superb. We found this place because of a great offer they had through Groupon. Through the coupon we ordered a dozen oysters and they were the BEST oysters we had our entire trip to the area. Afterward we...More

The menu items sound great, but there's a lot lost in the execution. The seafood risotto in particular was mediocre at best, with tiny dried-up mussels and little cubes of scallops that were completely tasteless.

Referred here by staff at Spanish Bay and they were spot on. Had a great lunch with a really good server and nice atmosphere. Seafood was fresh and well prepared. Was told this is a favorite of locals and I can see why.

This is a good restaurant. We focused on fish and really enjoyed the trout and seabass. The chowder to start is worthwhile. Staff are good and efficient. Finish off with the olalleberry pie to finish

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.
