This is a festive and fun Irish bar/restaurant. We got a Philly cheesesteak and an Irish dip with a side of their yummy French onion dip. The food was amazing. They have great beers on tap. It was a perfect late lunch spot for two on a rainy afternoon.

Great food JT and the staff do a great job here, drinks and music help set the stage for a great small venue for great bands and single acts. Never know what or who you will run into at Callahan's ISC from actors to musical acts. Might just go today for lunch since I was there only a week ago... More

I lived in New Orleans for many years and Callaghan's reminds me so much of some of the best neighborhood bar/food joint/music joints in N.O. I've been going to Callaghan's for more years than I care to admit and I can’t say that about many bars/restaurants in the Mobile area. Callaghans is great for food, a beer, and entertainment. Everyone... More

Callahan's? Best bar in the South? Are you kidding? Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded! Seriously, though. This place is so good the Mobile Police Department closes off streets for blocks around it on St. Patrick's weekend. Indoors is a wonderful experience but the party is outside. Great pub food. (You've already read about the burgers). Great music and... More

This is the best place in Mobile to get a burger and a beer. It's an authentic Irish pub, and it has a long history in this beautiful city. Right off Washington Square near the Oakleigh Plantation.

Definitely the best burger in town. On Sundays they have the best brunch with many different items to choose from.

Callaghan' s was recommend to us for lunch. When we first saw it outside we thought, really? Inside is small. But the burger and fries are the best I have ever had. The service was great, just a great feel all the way around. All the food looked great. This is a place where you feel at home and could... More

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.

Thank CPARebel
