Great for friends, not so much for families.

I love the atmosphere and the food is pretty good. The pours on drinks are great too. The music line ups are always interesting and bring crowds, which makes it hard to get inside sometimes. The only issue I've ever had there was the fact that people brought children. It should be apparent that it... read more

The service was really crappy. The woman never came back with refills, straws or condiments (the guy bussing the tables in our section had to get these things for us) and the place was actually really dirty. It's in a suspect-looking neighborhood, too. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger, which didn't come with bacon. However! The burger was SO good, I... More

This is your classic, in the middle of nowhere, couldn't find it by accident, great place to eat. In the middle of a post-thriving neighborhood that has long since been "elegant", remains a pub with fantastic food. Their menu is short and to the point. They don't have much, but what they offer, they do well. You owe yourself to... More

This is your spot if you are hot and looking for a cool beverage or hungry and can eat an awesome cheese burger with bacon hanging over the sides!! Nothing fried..but all things tasty. Laid back and you can eat inside or out on the porch. Even doggies are welcome outside and they keep water for them.

Great atmosphere, good selection of beers and hard ciders, simple menu but food delicious. Two issues: crowded and difficult to find seating and live music in small space is very loud.

I have always heard they had a good burger so I decided to try it. It was all that I expected. I had the bacon cheeseburger. It was one of the best restaurant burgers that I have ever had. I still think I cook the beast burger at home on the grill. You could tell that the hamburger meat is... More

We sat outside and ordered burgers. The beer menu was great. No prices on the table menu, old time classy! The neighborhood was like Magazine Street in New Orleans.

I have been going to Callaghans since the mid 70's and have never had a bad experience. Great burgers, great Sunday brunch. Have attended several fundraising events held here and they always have a good turn out
