We only stopped for drinks this time but will go back for a meal. The food looked and smelled wonderful. The atmosphere was great. we really enjoyed being out on the patio.

“Absolutely Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were so excited to have a night away from the kids! we live in Medford and we had never been to Callahan's. Our room was very nice and we were so excited to be able to use the jacuzzi later after our dinner reservations.
Once we went to dinner it was as if we were in the twilight zone!!!! Not to go into too much detail We ordered the porterhouse steak medium rare and it came out well done and they proceeded to tell us that the lighting in the kitchen is different than outside and that it was a medium rare steak. I said that I was not comfortable paying and did not want the steak. The owner of Callahan's came to our table and said you don't have to pay for your steak, but this is a medium rare steak, this is what you ordered! We were shocked!!! We simply said that we disagree and he snapped back and said well now have to pay for the steak!!! It was very awkward!! Then he said"why don't you just leave!" So............@ 9 o'clock we had to pack our bag and leave!!!
IT WAS UNREAL!! VERY STRANGE!! Very sad!!!

“Beautiful place, it's a shame the service is so horrible and food just mediocre.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

For the prices you expect excellent service and food. Not the case here. Ate dinner and breakfast and both times the food was average at best and service was horrible, even during slow times. The scenery is is gorgeous though.

“Setting-beautiful, Food-ok, service-not so good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I wanted to love this place completely from the moment I stepped in. Lovely outside deck with a beautiful view, soothing guitar music and relaxing atmosphere. However, when we were seated it took about 15 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Once the waiter finally came out he was perfectly pleasant, and even apologized for the fact that we had been passed by so many times and never helped. The funny thing is they were not even that busy, so I'm not sure what the hold up could be considering we were maybe one of 3 tables in his section. Once we received our food it was pretty good, but in my opinion, not worth the price. Once we were ready to get our check and go back to our room, it took about another 20 minutes for him to bring it. He just kept passing us by!! Same thing happened at breakfast in the morning. Perfectly pleasant waitress, but when she had more than two tables our existence started to lessen. It's almost as if they get easily overwhelmed because once again, we waited another 20 minutes to receive our check. Also, our omelettes that we had were pretty flavorless and unimpressive with big blobs of cheese on the top. Seasoning people! In conclusion, if you are looking for a beautiful atmosphere to take a date this would be your place. However, if good service and excellent fine dining food are just as important to you, I would look elsewhere to find all 3 qualities.

“worst food ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

disgraceful that they put this out out as edible food. Had one of the worst meals of my life. I cant even begin to describe how bad my experience was here, save yourself and go into town and eat.
