Our waitress was responsive and knowledgeable about celiac. She assured me the gluten free focaccia bread was kept separately from regular bread, that there was a separate prep area for GF food, and a dedicated fryer. She scored huge points with the cocktail I ordered. I asked her if any of the ingredients had artificial flavorings (I explained that could potentially cause problems for people with celiac). She didn’t know the answer but said she would check. When she returned she had a cocktail with her—she said that they couldn’t figure out for certain if one of the ingredients was gluten free so the bartender substituted something he or she knew was GF. Cocktail was delicious and I felt even more comfortable about the meal ahead because of how the waitress handled it. For dinner I had the GF fish and chips and they were great! I’d eat here regularly if I lived in the area.
So enjoyable to come to a restaurant and have so many options. Staff is very knowledgeable. Dedicated fryers. Gluten Free menu with large selection including fish and chips, soups and sandwiches. GREAT!
Decent GF options, but when my mother and I ate here, she got so violently sick with food poisoning that we almost got in an accident racing home to Mountain View. I (celiac) was fine, but she has never been so sick before in her life after having the fish tacos. Don't risk it!
The gf New England clam chowder was amazing. The fish and chips were good not great. Not as crispy as I would have liked. They serve Gluten free bread also which was warm and very good. Great service! Slow getting the check picked up but other than that it was great.
GF fish and chips was wonderful!
Staff was well versed in GF food, how they prep everything. GREAT GF options. Will being GF bread to the table if you wish. They will substitute almost anything on the menu. We were told the owners are suffering from celiac issues themselves and are understanding of others having gluten issues.
Service was really good and our waitress was really kind. She forgot my cup of chowder before our lunch came and immediately brought and told us she would not charge for it. The gluten free option for the fish and chips had corneal for the breading which we thought would be great for the kids; however it lacked flavor and was not seasoned at all. Half of it was left. The chips were also soft and a little mushy. It definitely felt more like diner food than a quality restaurant. The fish tacos for my gluten allergy wife were just ok. We feel bad about the review as the service was great and they were accommodating, the execution just fell flat.
Dedicated fryer - we had the seafood sampler fried. It’s a treat to have fried food. They brought out a bread that seemed to have cornmeal in it and rosemary. The fries were a bit mushy but we liked getting a little bit of everything with the sampler. Our favorite was the calamari. If I were to go again I’d get the calamari and one of the clam chowders. Atmosphere was great for lunch but it’s not a fancy place decor wise for a nice dinner.
fabulous gf crab cakes and a very knowledgeable staff. highly recommend !
The fish tacos were excellent!! I am gluten and dairy intolerant and had no reaction. The service was great and I was served gluten free bread!! Cute little place. My husband (who has no food problems) thoroughly enjoyed the fish BLT and the clam chowder. The chowder was one of the best he has ever had. I cannot speak for celiacs but it was great for me.
Gluten free menu available. Reasonable prices for the quality you get. Almost all seafood is local. Separate fryer for GF meals. Very kind personnel. We enjoyed it a lot!!
Extensive separate gf menu including crab cakes, my fave. Have eaten there many times and the food is more than decent. My only minor criticism of the most recent visit was that the service was a little slow and my food was not piping hot. I love that they do so much gf. Their fish and chips are a bit heavy (not the normal light batter) but still tasty
Amazing gf menu! They even have a special batter for deep frying foods like onion rings and crab cakes. Gf bread, pasta, and pizza available
Very good food and knowledgeable staff. Excited to hear they had a dedicated fryer and large gluten free menu.
Staff was extremely friendly and knowledgable about gluten issues, extensive gf menu. Had the fish n chips after wanting to try them for years- they were just ok. The crust was made of rice and corn flour- more like cornmeal- and not the fluffy "beer" batter crust I was expecting. Fries were soggy. Overall, probably the best choice in downtown Carmel for gf.
Excellent, Knowledgeable staff GF menu and most of the normal menu is adaptable. Not cheap but worth every cent.
Very celiac friendly, almost everything on the menu can be made gluten free. I had oysters, calamari and seared Ahi tuna. They were all fantastic, service was great and I can't wait to go back!
Had some delicious fish tacos here for lunch. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable.
The gf fish and chips are amazing! They have a corn, rice, and gf breadcrumb crust and are fried in a separate fryer. They were very knowledgeable and accommodating
Amazing gluten free options! I've been there three times and every time the food has been great and they really understand cross contamination. Excellent fried calamari, fish and chips and New England clam chowder. They can modify most things on the menu including crab cakes. They also have a selection of about 5 different gluten free desserts. Highly recommend!!
Dedicated fryer, and delicious food !
Did a great job- everyone was very knowledgeable. The gluten free menu had a lot of choices. I have celiac and would highly recommend this place! I had fried calamari and the seafood pasta and loved it all.
I agree that the crab cakes (and coleslaw) were amazing! Also had fish and chips and a clams and pasta! All delicious! Nice atmosphere too. Highly recommend. We're gluten free/dairy free/latex free.
Good gluten free bread and choices Only thing bad was they ran out of Titos Gluten Vodka went back next day for food again and Titos Vodka still no Vodka
Large GF menu. The crab cakes are amazing. Didn't have any problems later.
Great service, yummy options, and the lunch prices were very reasonable. We loved the fried calamari and the bread and butter!!
So, it's been 12 years since I've been diagnosed with celiac and 12+ years since I've had the pleasure is eating fish and chips, that is, until today! Flaherty's has a separate GF menu and it was difficult for me to select what meal to order... The staff seemed knowledgable and I felt safe putting my health in the chef's hands. My dinner was phenomenal and so was my husband's non GF meal. If we ever make it back to Carmel again this restaurant will be on our must see list! BTW, there is a restaurant section separate from the bar seating if you'd prefer a quieter atmosphere. It is so nice these small establishments can cater to the GF patrons!
Had it's own gluten free menu and knew a lot about celiac disease:) good bread and English fish and chips<3 I highly recommend this place!
Excellent meal. They did not have a separate menu but who cares? The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly and happy to accommodate. A definite "do again".
These guys will make anything you want without gluten and without fish. Which is really something, considering it's a fish house!
Loved this place. I have not been able to have clam chowder for 5 years. It was delicious. So was the calamari and crab cakes. They have a decent selection of gf choices and all the seafood tastes fresh.
Unbelievable options. I've never had a crab cake before- until today! They also have surprising gf choices like calamari and fish and chips... Come ready to make some tough decisions ;) The staff is very very knowledgeable and accommodating, and the food was DELICIOUS.
Gluten free bread, fried fish sampler GLUTEN FREE, gluten free pasta all cooked in a dedicated space. This place is awesome. If you ask them about gf options they'll say anything on the menu. Eat drink and enjoy!
We had dinner here 3x this week. Food and service were great every time. Both servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about gluten-free dishes and options. Best of all they have four gf desserts to choose from. Also have a very good selection of wines by the glass. Our go to place now that Le St Tropez is closed.
Have eaten in both sides (the grill and oyster bar) and have always enjoyed the food. This is now my go to place in Carmel since Le St .Tropez closed. Gf clam chowder is excellent and the Gf bread is from Mariposa. Seafood is always fresh and well prepared.
I was so excited after reading the reviews of this place. Not so much anymore. Tons of gf options and they ask if you are celiac. Fish and chips made me sick, ordered the clam chowder (never got it), took forever to get our food. Was pretty busy on a Tuesday night and they didn't have enough people working. Maybe just an off night I guess?
great choices and foccacia bread.we will be back.
The Gluten free clam chowder and fish and chips were excellent!
Friendly knowledgeable best homemade clam chowder I have ever eaten.
Great food. GF pasta available. Plus the famous chowder. Staff seemed very willing to accommodate celiac needs. food was excellent.
Great little spot with a good GF menu. My wife was able to have GF bread, clam chowder and fish and chips for the first time :).
The food here is excellent. They have a dedicated gluten free fryer and a menu full of options. My wife is celiac and we enjoyed the fried oysters, fish and chips (which were outrageously good) and a lobster louie on Udis (which was delightfully prepared - if they didn't say it was Udis you wouldn't know). I would come back in a heartbeat to try everything on their menu!
Delicious fish and chips! Bread from Mariposa :-) Gluten and dairy free
Fantastic options for gluten free seafood and they offer bread and butter beforehand as well. Very knowledgable, friendly, and gracious. Great food and dog friendly as well! Highly recommend.
I have been to Flaherty's multiple times and the gluten free selection is outstanding! Their gf clam chowder is delicious.
Very knowledgeable about cross- contamination. As soon as I said celiac they knew what to do. Extensive GF menu. Wasn't the best food I have ever had but I felt very safe which is more important. My 2 highly sensitive celiac daughters were fine after eating there- that's success for me!
Great experience on this restaurant. Both the owner and the waitress were very helpful and explain to me all of the gluten free options. Not only they have a separate GF menu but they also offer to customize some of the items on the regular menu. I had GF linguini with vegetables and bread. They also have great GF deserts. Recommend this place without hesitation.
Great GF menu, staff seemed knowledgeable regarding cross-contamination. I had the best fried calamari appetizer and the clam chowder was really good!
Eat at this establishment frequently and they make gluten free items separate from gluten containing items. Even a separate frier! I'm extremely allergic/sensitive so if you are someone who is sensitive/celiac looking for good GF food!! Look no further!!!!!! 😊
The waitress was very knowledgable and knew how to cater to my gluten and soy allergy. She was able to talk to me about all of my options. I highly recommend this restaurant!
