After this place being recommended by two locals, I was very surprised at how hard it was to get any service at this establishment. As I was traveling alone on a business trip and went to have a bite and a brew at the bar. I had to literally flag down the bartender when I wanted to order anything. I... More

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.
