Excellent pub and restaurant

I took my son's girlfriend to Cal's before his football game. There were a lot of older men at the bar watching football. I think we were the only women in the place except for the waitresses. The food was really awesome. She had the popcorn shrimp basket. It was not popcorn shrimp. It was... read more

Always good service and food. Go here at least 6 times a year and always a good experience. Salads are fresh and food is freshly fixed.

We have eaten at Cals several times. It is good food and they cut and make their own mozarella cheese sticks. They are a must at Cals. It is not a fancy place but, it is clean and friendly and you will not be disappointed. We aren't drinkers but, they do have a pub for those that are. We have... More

Cal's Indianola is not the fanciest place around, but offers good food at a good price. Expect lots of regular customers in this small "hometown" restaurant.

The food is good and lunch was served fast, exactly as I ordered it. The service was fast and friendly. The decor is dated.

Decided to use a discount for this restaurant since we had to pick up an order in Indianola. It was a good place to eat, we enjoyed the steak and shrimp. I had the vegetable soup, which was very good and my husband had a salad w/ the meal.

We enjoy eating at Cal's. It has a nice menu offering and the food is good. The staff is friendly and helpful. Dining area is away from the bar area. There is a room available for private parties. They have daily specials - and at times some really off the menu specials. Their grilled selections and smoked meat selections are... More

Better since smoking is not allowed in restaurants, and much better than previous (Diamond Dave) restaurant at this location. But nothing spectacular.
