A great burger in a really cool atmosphere in the Oakleigh garden district. Chips and French onion dip were good as well. Opened in 1946 it has a wonderful old pub feel. Appropriately on Charleston Street as this garden district area reminds me of Charleston, SC.

We got to Callaghans right at noon and we had to wait 20 mins. or more for a table. In their defense since this was office outing week for Christmas they had two large parties come in when they opened at 11 I guess the wait was unusual. We had to wait over 30 mins. for our burger which was... More

Callaghan's is like a neighborhood secret, except that it wins awards almost every year for po boys. Tucked away a block away from Broad St, it appears to be just your classic local bar. Add in the great food, live entertainment on weekends, and a reputation that has lasted for over 50 years, and you have one fantastic Irish pub.... More

Stopped by on basis of TripAdvisor reviews. Table was unwiped and we had a fly buzzing around but the food was good (hamburger & chicken sandwich), delivered hot and fairly quickly. Good beer list with many Irish brands. Food a little expensive but drinks reasonable. Would get a 4th star if table was clean.

Great place for lunch especially if your craving for a first class burger! Local area pub which is busy most of the time with social drinking, beer primarily. Atmosphere is great with real Irish flair, food is well worth your wait at lunch time.

Went with my family and it took well over an hour to receive orders- burgers. Restaurant full but no one was waiting. No apologies. If you have the time, place for good burgers. Prices not in menu. Have no idea what to expect until you get your bill. Does not sell French Fries. Smoked Tina dip marginal along with French... More

Great pub with authentic Irish atmosphere and food. The food was excellent. Any place that serves Guinness has to be good. I'll eat or drink here anytime.

I visited Callaghans on St. Patty's Day. It was super fun with live music and lots of Irishmen. I'm not really into that type of food but I gave it a 5 because the staff were GREAT. The atmosphere, even though crazy busy was great and the food was prepared well. Not one complaint. I would go again, just for... More
