Amazing!

We loved almost everything about this place. There were 7 of us and we got seated right away. (We had called ahead.) Our waiter, Tibor was awesome - attentive, funny and made great suggestions. The bread was great, the soup was to die for, and the salad dressing was wonderful! The kids loved... read more

I'll make this short. We went on a recommendation a local friend. The wait staff is efficient and service good. The menu is short on seafood dishes but long on home style ie meatloaf and beef. The seafood platter was so breaded it was hard to distinguish each piece on the plate due to the breading. My piece of prime... More

I have went to Callahan's many times and every time I see myself ordering one of their many delicious nightly specials. They always have a fish or seafood dish and many other options to choose from. Tonight I ordered the BBQ Pork Loin and boy was it a treat. The pork was on top of a carrot medley and topped... More

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value. I'm glad I discovered this restaurant on TripAdvisor. I always try to preview the TripAdvisor reviews when traveling. Other patron's reviews for Callahan's have been spot on. Callahan's was so refreshing after having eaten at the more "touristy" spots around town. My daughter and I were so impressed with our server... More

We are locals and this is the Best Steak in town. Seafood specials every night that are fabulous and made in house with great veggies and sauces on the side if wanted. Large portions and reasonable prices. Everything is prepared correctly and we love it. Great selections of food and beverages.

If you don't require a view of the Harbor to enjoy your meal....this is your place. Large portions... excellent home-style specials...fresh salads with a bleu cheese dressing that should be on the beverage menu...and prices that are much more than fair. The Liver and Onions or the Pot Roast or the Country-fried Steak are a religious experience when ordered with... More

We stayed in Destin, Florida for the whole month of February 2015 and ate here four times. The chicken salad is great and their daily lunch specials are very good. We will definitely be back next year.

We are never disappointed when we go to Callahan's. They give you enough food for a doggie bag and that is usually lunch the next day. Sometimes you just want something other than seafood and they roast beef is excellent. This time the lasagna was chosen and made the grade. Lovely people, lovely food, and cakes to die for.

We were in Ft. Walton Beach for a few days for spring break and decided to eat out one night. We have an impressionable 13-yr old, so we wanted a place that was a little quieter than the usual "tourist-y" places (because you know how spring break is), so on the advice of our brother-in-law (local to the area) we...
