Flaherty's Seafood Grill for Dinner

We had planned to go to Dametra Cafe for dinner because Wendy and Rob had recommended it and it got all kinds of good reviews, but I forgot to make a reservation, so there was quite a long wait when we got there, and we were really hungry, so we walked on down to another restaurant right across from our first night's dinner.

Flaherty's Seafood Grill and Oyster Bar was our destination and, once again, we lucked out. Hardly anyone there at about 6:30, but it had filled up by the time we left.

First things first - the wine. We like sauvignon blanc with fish, and Flaherty's wine list had two New Zealand sauv blancs. We chose the Kim Crawford and were not disappointed. It went well with both the oysters and the fish we ate.

First, Bill had a half dozen oysters, a variety of types. He shared one with me and, while I am not an oyster lover, it was good. Guess I forgot to take a photo of those.

They had not one but three entrees featuring Fresh Alaskan Halibut. I chose the one "encrusted with cashew nuts in a porcini mushroom / basil / cream / lobster / sherry sauce. Yum! I almost lickd the plate.

Bill's choice was another Alaskan Halibut entree, with a crabcake on top. Both of our entrees had a huge portion of garlic mashed potatoes. Double yum!

No dessert tonight - we were just too full.

So, this would definitely be another restaurant recommendation. We hope to try Dametra Cafe on another trip.

Hi Nancy, ohh I love Halibut and I am drooling over your two dishes. If I am ever up that way in the future, I must dine here. There food looks delicious. btw, I'm not a big oyster fan either, but I love Halibut.

Thanks so much for sharing your photos, your experiences and the link to this place.
