Best in Destin

Callahans is the best southern style cooking in Destin hands down! You can't go wrong with anything on the menu!

Who doesn't love this restaurant? The locals flock here at lunchtime and the dinners are fantastic too. I'd go there anytime! It feels like home away from home! Try the desserts too!

After having eaten at Callahan's many times over the years, on a whim, we tried the grilled grouper and fried shrimp. For no particular reason, we just always thought of Callahan's as being a great place for sandwiches, salads, burgers, pasta etc ... But the grilled grouper was absolutely perfect! You could not find better or a more generous portion... More

Been here a few times over the years. Had dinner here once that I didn't enjoy but not bad enough I wouldn't come back. Ate here today on Sunday after church and they still had breakfast available (Brunch). Our food was good and filling. Drinks were good too. Service was very good. Atmosphere is nice as well and the place... More

Callahan's is one of the better values in the area. Never small portions. Food is always tasty. Great service. Dinner rolls included with the meal. A+ overall

Excellent food and service, every time! Not located with a view but still a great local eatery, fairly priced, always satisfying. Was a bit disappointed that they were closed on Sunday for dinner but that is only because their food is so good!

I was treated very rudely by the assistant manager named Jill. When I spoke to the owner named Suzanne she was apologetic and offered to remedy... More
