We were invited to brunch by a family friend, who raved about the eggs Benedict here. Mid-day on a Sunday, three of us were seated at once since the restaurant was not at all crowded. Our server appeared promptly, and took our drink and food orders. Then we waited. Since I was not expecting any problem, I didn't bother to... More

We've been to Callahans before and are usually happy to go back when they have a Paintnite event we are interested in. Had some confusion with a coupon but other than that things went well. I recommend their version of bang bang shrimp! Tasty, as an appetizer or with a salad they could be a meal if you're not a... More

The food was excellent! Staff was on the spot, even the clean up staff was helpful and keeping the place spotless. Conversation easy, décor did not overwhelm. Highly suggest it as a place for any meal they serve. The bar area was friendly and the no television overwhelmed another. Could be one of the best sports watching spots I have... More

Callahan's is known for its fresh seafood. You will not be disappointed if you are a seafood lover. The staff is friendly and also very accommodating. There is a dining room separate from the bar the bar is equipped with a TV and has a limited dinner menu. Some of the freshest crab cakes and calamari that you'll ever eat... More

After a visit to a restaurant that served awful food minutes prior, we went to Callahan's. The waitress was awesome and the fresh seafood was delicious. Whenever we are in the area, we definitely will be visiting again. Everything was delicious and the karaoke was an added bonus to listen to as well.

We wanted a crab cake, saw some reviews and decided to try this restaurant. We had cream of crab soup to start our lunch. Nice flavor with pieces of crab in soup. We ordered a crab cake with sweet potatoes fries. The crab cake was around 5 oz., with lots of crab meat and very little filler. The sweet potatoes... More
