    Heard good things, and the filet was cooked to order and tasty. The duck appetizer was very nice. Really need new bartender-mixed drinks awful. The spinach side was tasteless and chimichurri not very tasty,

    Our table was ready when we arrived, our waiter remembered us from a previous visit and even recalled what we had ordered the last time. I especially appreciated the confirmation call the day before our visit to make sure the online reservation information was correct. Gallagher's is becoming the " let's celebrate a birthday" spot for my group of retired school teachers. Thanks for doing a good job.

    I would recommend Gallaghers for a big party, however not a quiet romantic night out. It was very loud!! The filet was outstanding!! The waiter seemed inexperienced & was far too forward on pushing the most expensive items on the menu. Also we had reservations and didn't get seated until 45 minutes after we arrived on time. I feel they should have done something to make up for that & nothing was said or done. I would go back however and sit at the bar just to get the filet. The bartender and busboy were the most on top of things.

    Went here for husbands birthday. The food was delicious but we had so many people waiting on us I still don't know who our waiter was. It was also extremely loud. I made the reservation stating that it was my husbands birthday. It would have been nice if staff could have wished him a happy birthday. I didn't expect song or dessert of coarse, just maybe a happy birthday and more re attentive service.

    My husband and I used to go to Gallaghers on Friday evenings many years ago. We moved away and I recently moved back to Covington. Gallaghers is less than a mile away from my new home and when a friend invited me to lunch to celebrate my birthday I recommended Gallaghers. I ordered the crabmeat au gratin because it is my favorite dish. It was delicious and the serving was so large I had the leftovers for dinner. My friend had shrimp with a chipotle sauce and she thoroughly enjoyed it. We shared a side of grilled asparagus that was cooked just right. YUM!

    We knew Gallegher's years ago and were delighted to re find it. The food was delicious, arrived promptly and sizzling. We loved the "table servings" of the sides. The staff was superb_ attentive but not obtrusive. Can't wait for cooler weather to try the patio. Such a nice setting.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    My husband and I celebrated our 53 wedding anniversary dinner at Gallagher's. We have been there several times and we know that we can always get an outstanding meal. My husband got the Fish Almondine and I got a large Soft Shell Crab that was standing up on its side and it was a wonderful dish. The waiter brought us a plate of fresh cooked corn and he said it was compliments of the house and this was very good. We finished off the meal with my favorite which was the White Chocolate Bread Pudding. We were seated in the bar area next to the patio window and we enjoyed the view. The only thing that I can say which was a bit negative was that it was a tad noisy but over all it was a good experience and we will always go back.

    Our waiter was excellent. He was eager to accommodate our group of ladies and their requests that ranged from more ice to it is too cold in here and separate checks. The Asian Ka-Bobs, as always, were delicious. I personally was not a big fan of the bread pudding, but others approved. I appreciated the phone call to confirm the reservation which allowed me to adjust the number of guests. The hostess and others who brought items to our table were all pleasant and attentive. Overall, it was a nice dining experience.

    The food was phenomenal and the staff was outstanding. It was a little noisy but the restaurant was very crowded with a large dinner celebration in the back. The soft shell crab was as good as it gets and my wife had the rib eye which was excellent. The selection just for the specials had something for everyone. This is my favorite restaurant on the Northshore and then some.

    I made reservations easily through Open Table directly from the restaurant website. So easy. It was my son's 30th birthday and they wished him a Happy Birthday as soon as we arrived. The waiter also did that when he arrived at our table. The menu had many specials to choose. The pompano with crab was excellent! The service was perfect...very attentive but never intrusive. All around perfect evening.

    While the waiter was very nice and helpful, there were many mistakes made. Do not know who's fault it was but it happened. Food was good but not as good as hoped. Mac and cheese was HORRIBLE. Ribeye was very good, stuffed chicken was very good, gumbo and oysters were good. Need to add sweet tea to the drink list. Very friendly atmosphere. Chef and waiter apologized for the problems and took the food of the check which was very much appreciated. Overall I give it 3 stars on my visit. Gonna try it one more time, hope it's way better!

    This is my favorite resturant by far. I'm a seafood guy, but Pats steaks are better than Ruth's. His selection of seafood, perfected in the New Orleans style always pleases me. Just wish he would put the Red Fish Courtbouillion soup on menu for good. Tastes like my Grandma'a

    This restaurant has been in the hood for many years. People have said it was great! It is obviously well loved by the people who frequent it and by those who are regulars. And there are plenty of regulars - that is obvious. Not being one of those, I felt like an outsider at the restaurant. Our table was in the middle of the place, the waiter wanted to flip the table and the bus boy mumbled so badly no one knew what he said. And he was there to present the food - NOLA italian typical and it was ok. Nothing particularly wowed me or anyone at the table. And it was pricey. There are plenty of other good restaurants around that are friendlier more comfortable and cost far less.

    Food was delicious, from appetizers, to salad, to entrees and dessert. Overall the dining room was frantic. All food runners and servers seemed to be "rushing" throughout the dinning room so was not a very pleasant environment to eat in. Food was excellent and server was very courteous, but seemed as if he and all servers were overextended.

    This was our third time at this restaurant. This time it was to celebrate by fiancé's birthday. As it has been in the past, the food was excellent and the service was equally as good. My only complaint about this restaurant is that it is a touch too noisy; a small price to pay for the great food.

    The staff is friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the menu. Large sports motif in the bar area dining room, elegant in the main dining area. Would recommend for special occasions. Only suggestion to the restaurant would be to get a pastry chef. In stark contrast to the food, the deserts seemed store bought and left us wanting.

    We had the steak bone-on-bone and they split it for us. It was one of the best I've enjoyed. We shared a side of potatoes au gratin, which was wonderful. The waiter was kind enough to tell us that the sides were ample and could be shared. Not inexpensive, but well worth it. Only problem was parking, as it is in a neighborhood.
