I do a lot of research and went here on TAs reviews for last minute planning. We went here on a whim since we didn't plan anywhere to eat this night. Other than 2 of my kids splitting a filet, which was just ok. This was not good place to eat. I had the chicken salad plate. Nothing special here.... More

Our family of 6 ate here twice during our week long stay in Destin (July 6-13). Both times were fantastic - we eat on the later side (around 8:30-9:00) so there was no wait (compared to many of the more touristy Destin venues). Our waiter both times was a charming man by the name of Tibor, who was not only... More

We ate here early on July 26, and my spouse and I spilt the pot roast. The food was very good and more than enough for us both to eat. This place was recommended to us last year by locals and it is a great place to eat again this year.Our server disappeared but apologized as he said he got... More

We had a party of 14 for dinner. They had a table ready within 10 minutes. The food is very good and the service second to none. The prices are fair. We will be back next year.

We went for a late lunch. Ordered shrimp po' boy, country fried steak, BLT's, and spaghetti (with butter instead of sauce). All meals were good and plentiful except spaghettis.....kids didn't care for them. Service was good as well. I think they had more to offer with other meals and sweets but we were full and only had time to visit... More

Callahans is one of the restaurants that we always visit in Destin. We have tried so many different items and liked them all, but among our favorites are the pasta dishes, chicken fried chicken, livers and onion. and the steaks. We also take some pimento cheese back to the condo. One other point, the portions are generally huge and make... More

Out of all the places we ate at this year on vacation, this was one of the best. The price is fantastic, the service was very good, and the food was good. The portions were large, so we had two boxes of leftovers to take back to our condo. The furniture is a little dated, but I would rather sit... More

We were looking for something different for dinner one night, somewhere we hadn't been. I came across this place and it had great reviews. I now know why. This place is a gem. It's hidden behind another building off Hwy 98 and we had never noticed the sign, but passed it several times. We went early and there was no... More

Food was excellent. Great variety of menu including local catches. Service was top notch. We had a group if nine and was seated quickly.
