Went with my sister, neither of us had been before. The MD Crab soup was equally divine, OUTSTANDING. My sister got twin lobster tails topped with crab imperial, sauteed squash, shrooms & other veggies, sauteed perfectly. I tasted my sisters crab imperial, EXCELLENT IT WAS!!!!!! she said her lobster was slightly over cooked. I got fried oysters, fries & slaw.... More

The food is fine, nothing special. The service is usually great and the wait staff is super friendly. However, this last visit was a horrible experience for myself and my family. Immediately we were dismissed and treated like an inconvenience by an older waiter. Now this was before 6 pm on a Monday and only 4 tables were being used.... More

Great local seafood. Well worth a visit. Large variety of options. Don't be intimidated by outside appearance. Would recommend reservations, was fairly crowded. Causal dress ok.

I have eaten several hamburgers here. Each time they have been absolutely delicious. I don't eat much red meat, but when I want a burger, I come here! Love the setting, which although it is spacious to accommodate large groups, still allows a feeling of intimacy if in a small group. The food is hot, and the waiters are very... More

You can start the meal off with Oyster's on the half shell, which are very good here. Then I recommend the Prime Rib. I got the King Cut and my Friend got the Queen. The Queen is large enough, and I would recommend sticking to that unless you feel you have to have the "KING CUT". It was very flavorful.... More

We go once a year during the holidays with family. Same waiter takes good care of us. Cozy fireplace dining room with back room local bar scene. Fresh seafood, diverse offerings. Great md crab cakes and raw oysters. Recommend cream of crab soup, traditional is a bit salty. Fried oysters great too.

Callahan's has a separate dining room and a bar area so you can choose which atmosphere you wish to dine or drink in. We started with drinks and then had their crab soup. My husband had the cream of crab, which he loved, and I had the tomato based crab soup that tasted exactly like the crab soup made by... More

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
