Nice lunch..

New to Destin, looking for some home cooking type meals. Someone mentioned Callahans. Had a very nice lunch, but the highlight was the coconut cake for dessert.

Best lasagna I have ever tasted. We eat here a lot when in Destin. We usually split the lasagna and the portions are perfect for our needs. The last waiter we had was great.

The price is right here! The food is scrumptious and plentiful, desserts are beautiful and delicious. Sandwiches are for sharing, or take half home for another meal! Service was a bit slow, but not bad, because they are always busy. It's plain in decor and there's no view from the windows, but they make up for it in the food... More

We were driving around looking for a new dining place and just happened to turn down the road leading into Callahan's,directly behind Intimate Treasures. We never saw the sign on the road so we were lucky to just have stumbled upon it. We were greeted right away by a very friendly hostess and seated right away. As we walked through... More

Our friends who live about 1 mile away and go to this local restaurant on a regular basis said we must try the local variety of seafood and steaks... Boy they were right; the fish I had and the steak my wife ordered were wonderful. We finished our meal with a big delicious piece of cake... The service from our... More

During our month long stay in Destin, my wife and I have eaten at Callahan's Restaurant and Deli twice. Both times, the meal and service have been outstanding. Also, the price is very reasonable and the portions are HUGE! Highly recommended to couples and families.

Good food, interesting menu, good wait-staff, reasonable prices, and really happy clientele . . . . what's not to like? In particular, I liked the fact that they were very attentive to my particular food-allergy concerns and accommodated them easily and without my having to be concerned. Go there - you'll be glad you did. (oh and there's this Sea-salt... More

I got the Chicken Francese special ($16.99) – 2 chicken breasts dipped in egg batter, squash, mashed potatoes and a salad. My husband got the Pot Roast dinner with broccoli and a salad ($12.99). Our friend ordered a NY Strip Steak medium rare. The waitress brought us a basket of delicious, doughy rolls while we waited for our meals. We... More

I've been to Callahan's dozens of time and have always been pleased that it is consistently good. I've had good meals and great meals ............... none that were sub par. The wait staff is always on top of things. They have great deserts and a wonderful meat case.
