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.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

TAKEOUT AND DELIVERY: Grubhub, Seamless and DoorDash

Gallagher's knows how to run a steakhouse. Four of us were seated in my favorite part of the restaurant near the visible kitchen. Pierro did an outstanding job as our waiter. The steaks were delicious - great flavor and cooked to perfection. Others at the table had salmon and veal chop parmigiana. Everyone enjoyed their meals including the NY style cheesecake and the chocolate layer cake that pears well with the Argentinian Malbec. Really enjoy Gallagher's.

Alberto has been working at Gallaghers for more than 30 years. His service an suggestions are just perfect. The food is awesome and the drinks as well. The steak tartare is an incredible appetizer along with the onion soup. Porterhouse is my favorite when it comes to Gallaghers. Tasty, tender, perfectly cooked (medium). Don't miss the Chocolate Cake

Ambiance is incredible. Old school steakhouse. The meat room is particularly cool. Sinatra on the speakers. Staff in coat and tie. Love it.

A bit touristy in that a lot of the patrons are not dressed as appropriately as I’d like. We arrived in dress and tie. I noticed men in graphic t shirts. Folks in flip flops. Women in shorts. Half the room is dressed nicely, the other half has bubble gump shrimp co attire.

Food is good, but given the category of restaurant (expensive classic steak house) I was underwhelmed. Fortunately, it’s not as outrageously expensive as other restaurants in this category ($210 for two people before tip) and it sort of feels like you get what you pay for: a lower entry of the highest tier.

The shining star of the evening is the Steak Sauce. Made in house. Ketchup based. Explosive flavor. The manager came by and asked how we were doing. I said my water hadn’t been refilled in a while. He came back with water and I asked about the sauce. He explained the sauce in detail. I think out of apology for my water not being filled he brought over a bottle of the sauce and gave it to me on the house.

Next time I’m in the market for a high end dining experience, I’ll explore elsewhere. If you’re in Times Square after a show and want a nice meal, it’ll do the job.

Steak was excellent.

The porterhouse for 2 my son and I shared was amazing and my wife's lobster was perfect. Salads are delicious and desserts are spectacular. And the service was wonderful, exactly what you hope for. This was special celebration for us and Gallaghers delivered in every way imaginable.

I'm always happy to pay for a great dining experience; however, I was disappointed that a highly recommended steakhouse wouldn't have a searing station. My order was a ribeye prepared "black-n-blue" (...or Chicago style). It came as simply a cold steak with a few grill marks on it. A "loaded" baked potato included only butter?!?! I hate to say it, but I would recommend Ruth's Chris (chain restaurant) over Gallagher's.

Everything I’d expect from a classic New York steakhouse. Service was top notch, ambience was great, and the food was phenomenal. Had a prohibition feel, while the open kitchen made it feel updated and well kept 10/10 would repeat

Gallaghers steaks are delicious and beautifully prepared. The staff provides excellent service and is very accomodating. They did a wonderful job of explaining the different cuts of meat. We had a great experience at our family dinner.

Gallagher’s attentive service is as outstanding as its food. Great care is invested in both. The surrounds and ambiance are classic, sporting old world charm. The entire staff is welcoming and our entire party felt very appreciated. Can’t wait to return.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left my wife and I felt seen and served and honestly like part of the family! We love this steakhouse and it’s rich history and Stu made us feel like we’ve always been part of it. And of course the food, wine and cocktails were incredible!
