Great Burger

I discovered this pub last year thanks to trip advisor and love it. They have a simple menu but lots of beverages and atmosphere. I enjoy the chips and dip, a basket of potato chips with some French Onion dip. Simple, but fun. Burgers are fantastic. I make the drive for the burgers alone. Lots... read more

This is more of a local hangout then a serious restaurant, the food is average but along with the atmosphere makes for a good night.

As described, a good old fashioned neighborhood pub with plenty of ambiance. We had a late lunch on a Saturday and it was fairly crowded and noisy but the service was more than reasonable. Definitely deserves the great reviews - burgers were tasty and large. Highly recommend the tuna dip and saltines as an appetizer but prepare to share -... More

Went for dinner and had a great time. Ordered the Shrimp Po' Boy and Cheeseburger and both were fabulous!!! Our waitress was knowledgeable and so friendly. We will be back for sure next time we are in Mobile.

Visited here with some co-workers. I had the Bacon burger and Slaw. I am not a big burger fan, but this the juicy and flavorful and love that it was on a Kaiser roll. The slaw was great. It's hard to come by some good slaw. The atmosphere was great, and the service was good.

Last Sunday I took my parents and my daughter to Callaghan's. I have had take out from there but it was our first time eating at the restaurant. It was not as good as I remember, it was better. I love the location, the food and the staff was great. I did not get our waitress's name but she was... More

Lovely food. Good choice of beers. Really good ambience. Friendly staff. Well recommended. This place offers something different from the usual bland American fare.

We have made it a habit to search out the best burgers wherever we travel to. This allows us to experience some pretty great meals. So when we read that Callaghan's had the best burger in Alabama, we were excited to give it a go. The restaurant/pub is what you would expect, rough around the edges but having its own... More

Callaghan's Irish Social Club is in a unique part of Mobile. Stepping inside of Callaghan's is like stepping back in time. Retro artwork and photos are on the tables and the walls. I love the building and layout of the place. They always have live music thats awesome. There were even a few members from Rollin In The Hay walking... More

Every time we visit Mobile, we eat at Callaghan's. This time around, I'm pregnant and have an aversion to ground beef, but not a Callaghan's burger! The bacon cheeseburger is the bomb and their coleslaw....yum, yum. This is definitely a place for adults and low key outings, more along the lines of a dive joint. Sometimes the service is fast,...
