A word from Gallaghers Steakhouse
Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Diner Reviews
  • "This was one of the best service I received. The waiter was exceptional. He made the entire dinner party feel welcome. The food was good. However, I just wish I would have gotten my steak medium, instead of medium well. I would visit this restaurant in the future and recommend it to friends."

  • "The Trio revisited after 10 years -- we had done lunch in 2004...this was dinner after play. I had to notify Gallagher's we would be late - Doug said he would hold our table & from the moment we entered the door until we left 2 hours later the experience was amazing. Crab cakes for appetizer great - wine recommendations spot on and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Dessert shared by Trio was the Blueberry Tart & something I will try to replicate at home. Hoping I don't have to wait 10 more years before I return to NYC & Gallagher's"

  • "Dall ultima volta che ci siamo stati hanno rinnovato gli ambienti rendendolo più sofisticato ed elegante, anche la cucina non è più a diretto contatto con la sala molto bello. La qualità della carne e' buona molto scenografica e' la cella frigorifera a vista all ingresso dove ci sono centinaia di fiorentine a frollare. Prezzi alti ma come tutte le steakhouse . Grazie"

  • "Our family had a great time at this restaurant immediately before a Broadway show. The steaks were excellent, if the preparation a bit uneven, as one of the mediums came out redder than the medium rare that was ordered. What really stood out however was exemplary service. The staff made you feel as though you were at home, and were quite entertaining and warm. It was one of the best service experiences I've had in New York City. The green beans in particular were quite tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a good steakhouse near the Theater District and Times Square."

  • "I've known about Gallagher's for many many years but this was my first visit. I went with my wife on a Sunday afternoon prior to attending a play that evening.I can honestly say that my dining experience at Gallagher's was one of my finest.. Christian and Austin where our servers and they could not have been more pleasant or willing to make sure our dining experience was a wonderful one .Our prime rib and filet mignon were prepared perfectly and the sides were large and delicious. I had the lobster bisque appetize and my wife had the beet and arugula salad and she. Most highly recommended. One of the most delightful dining experiences I've ever had, and definitely the most delicious steak. Most highly recommended."

  • "the right place to eat fantastic meat. We were in two, we went for the second time, and we had a fantastic experience. Service excellent, location nice (old and classic restaurant), in the center of Midtown. we had a steak and a filet plus some side dishes like smashed potatoes, spinach etc. everything was good but the meat was superb. A little bit expensive (50$ the steak) but the quantity is enough and the quality is at the top. you must try it!"

  • "For all the carnivores that still exist, this is the place for steak in NYC. The quality and flavor can't be beat. The portions are enormous. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Even though the restaurant has been in existence since 1927, the eating space and kitchen were updated and remodeled in 2012-13."

The steak was good (we had the porterhouse) thought I would go ribeye next time for more flavour. We will definately be back."

  • "We were looking for a restaurant that wasn't just a 'commercial' steakhouse. A more refined and modern while traditional type of restaurant. We were very pleased with our choice of Gallagher's. Not only is the meat top quality, so is everything else offered on the menu. The service was very professional and courteous. We were treated as I would imagine regular long-time clients would be in this place, not as tourists. The recently newly renovated open kitchen adds to the dance of waiters and busboys with their carts rolling around. We were seated in the back where I imagine it was quieter than it could be closer to the bar. It was a perfect meal. We found our place for great meat for our future New York getaways!"

  • "We found this wonderful spot next to our theater on our first trip to NY. We only had a drink before the play but they treated us like regulars. We came back on our second trip and enjoyed a fabulous dinner. Service was top rate without being intrusive. Be sure to try the creamed spinach, just like Gram used to make."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "My wife and I dined after attending the theater. Rick, our waiter, did an outstanding job describing the menu and taking care of us. My wife's wedge salad was the best she has ever had. She also enjoyed the blue cheese crusted filet, while I dined on the prime rib. Will definitely return on our next trip to NYC."
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "The ambiance is exciting with friendly waiters dressed like the 1890's. The food was excellent especially the creamed spinach The portions were generous but not creating a feeling that you were being swamped by too much. My waiter was pleasant and made good suggestions and I would have give him a superior rating but he gave me the wrong check! I would definitely look forward to returning. It was generally a happy experience."

  • "We chose to eat here due to high reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. Everything was great except for the waiter (John) who served us. He was not friendly and did not make us feel comfortable during our dinner experience. We were not sure if that was just his personality, but then we noticed that he was very friendly to other tables he waited on. He even served the side dishes on other patrons plates. He never spoke to us asking where we were from or if we ever dined with them before. I think he was jaded towards us and it showed. The food and atmosphere was great, but John ruined out experience there. If anyone goes there, make sure John does not serve you."

  • "We have been in the restaurant on a previous ocassion, so we decided to celebrate the 65th birthday of my wife, so we invited our two dauhgters and our four grand children and it was quite an experience for everybody. All of us were delighted with the quality of the food and with the excellent service of the staff. I only hope we can return to celebrate my 70th birthday and our 50th anniversary. Thank you for a wonderful experience!"

  • "Went for my friend's birthday. Even though I noted it on the reservation, no attempt was made to acknowledge the birthday. She and I both wanted the Prime Rib. We were told they were sold out and then the server went into an unnecessary story about how the Jersey Boys cast came in and cleared them out. She ordered a medium well filet and it was delivered rare. She enjoyed the part of the filet that she did eat. Three others ordered filets and said they were very good. My lamb chops were delicious. My old fashioned was horrible. Sides were good but uninspired. We've had better meals at the Capital Grille. Overall was very disappointed for what should have been an amazing meal at what I thought was a New York City institution. My mistake."

  • "Visiting NYC, had tickets to see "Jersey Boys" and was looking for a place to eat before the show. Gallaghers was across the street from the theater... and so I made reservations. Everything was WONDERFUL! Steaks were perfect, salads were delicious, The French Onion Soup was heavenly and the cappuccino was authentic. We felt very attended to by our waiters. If you like steak and want to be surrounded in a lovely atmosphere, you won't be disappointed. See the show after dessert!"

  • "This is one of those gems that has all the history and dignity and grace of the Old World: gentlemanly, polite, very accomodating. But right on top of that is all the great stuff of the New World: great menu, comfort, beautiful view to the kitchen, lively atmosphere. We had a great meal served by two terrific servers...friendly wihtout being inntrusive. We enjoyed the meal, enjoyed a private conversation, and yet interacted with the servers enough to enjoy their personalities and their recommendations. Excellent evening."
