Stopped for lunch and had the pastrami and the muffaletta sandwhiches. These were tasty deli-style, very satisfying! The restaurant is casual and nicely decorated. Haven't tried the desserts, but the pies and cakes looked delicious. Fine looking steaks in the deli section too. We will be back for more.

Had a decent lunch here with guests. The blackened tuna sandwich was good, not spicy and a bit over cooked. The taste and sizes and prices were all very fair. I would recommend this place for folks, they also have nice meats and desserts to go if you are staying in the area.

We're locals and we go to Callahan's often when we're in Destin for shopping or movies. They are very reasonably priced, the food is always good, the portion sizes are quite large, and we always have polite, friendly service. We're generally there for lunch or dinner, but also go for Sunday brunch on occasion. I always eat sandwiches or brunch... More

So I just finished eating and I couldn't wait to post. I debated on coming here from seeing the reviews. It was just ok. The gravy had zero seasoning. The broccoli was very bland. I had country fried steak and my husband had chicken fried chicken both were just mediocre. Now my waitress was a sweetheart but the poor child... More

Food is almost as good as mother made. Price and location are great. Quantity was much more than expected. Hard not to like this place

While vacationing in the Destin area, decided to try Callahan's based on good TripAdvisor reviews. Went on a Sunday around 1:45, not realizing that they are only open for breakfast and brunch on Sundays, closing at 3 pm - whew, glad we made it before they closed! This combination restaurant & deli has a very casual feel, is locally owned,... More

Spotted this restaurant tucked back in the plaza where the old theater is (closed now). Looked like a nice place. Lots of cars in the lot. Inside was kind of bistro style with nice decor. Our waiter, was a super helpful, attentive to detail young man.. forgot his name :( He was adamant about making our meal a wonderful experience.... More

Been coming to Destin for 15 years...took 8 for someone to let us in on the Callahans secret. Food is down home and really good! Always great specials that are more than reasonably priced. Too much food to finish! Can't leave without cake for desert. An unbelievable selection that are reasonably priced. Last time in we got three to go!

We tried this place because our son and daughter in law had tried it once or twice before, and it was really pretty good. Nice place, nice people, good service, good food and nice portion sizes too. Liked the fried pickles. Good size and priced portions for kids too. They also have an amazing selection home made cakes (which we... More
