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

One of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests for a special meal. Never fails to please. Service is excellent without being over-bearing, recommendations always spot-on and the steaks are expertly aged and cooked to perfection (get them as rare as you dare).
Prices are high - this is a premium Manhattan steakhouse.

Great to see them open after being closed for a full year!

This is what it is all about when they talk about 'dining experience'. I felt kind of quilty to be dining in a room that should be full of laughter and happy banter. None of this because of the Plandemic. A truely magical night. Quiet ambiance. intimate conversation, exceptional detail to service and quality.
WOW what a great evening!

Gallaghers is a terrific steakhouse the way steakhouses were meant to be. The service is wonderful, the tables are generously spaced, and the food is always excellent. The entire staff is nice with absolutely no attitude. Reminds me of the great restaurants in the past with excellent service and top quality food. Don't miss the lunch specials which are a great deal for a lot of food. Certainly the best steakhouse in the Times Square/Theatre District especially since The Palm has been diminished.

Was craving a steakhouse dinner. Excellent wedge salad, surf (Lobster tail) and turf (filet au poivre) did not disappoint. Lyonnaise potatoes good. Satisfying dinner.

Everything was just excellent.
The steaks are the star of the show but from appetisers to sides to coffee, it all came together to make a fabulous meal experience.
The food is only part of it. The service was wonderful. Our waiter, Armando, was brilliant. Never rushed us. Gave us insightful recommendations. This made our experience what it was. Def recommend. Def will go back. Steakhouse prices (although the wine by the glass was super value) but you get what you pay for. And I was v happy to pay.

It was my birthday dinner the food as usual
Was exceptional our only issue was that they had locked my birthday cake in the fridge and were unable to retrieve the key before closing time so we had to come back the next day to pick the cake up. But they did adjust our bill for the inconvenience which kept the vibe of the night on a great note. Overall love the food and the ambiance of Gallagher’s still.

Love this appealing place, whose lunch is at the top of Manhattan values.
Surprised at the awful clam chowder, an almost black made uass of beefy tasting not pristine clams. A sausage gumbo was better. With entrees Gallaghers returned to stride. All were most please with lamb chops and filet. The pleasant waiter alas spilled a just poured glass of red wine from the bottle. He made up for it with a stellar fruit plate. Dessert were, as usual superb: cheese cake and key lime pie. Look forward to returning to this most satisfying restaurant.

I love Gallagher’s, however, this time I had to return the lamb chops because they were raw - I had asked for medium rare. The music was wonderful, and the service was very good, however, I missed the Irishman waiter - I understand he is in Ireland.

From the moment we entered, it was a wonderful experience. Waitstaff was masked, attentive and perfectly professional. Cocktails and wine were exactly what we wanted. Food was beyond our expectations. It was not stuffy, but still quiet. We can’t wait to go back!

Went here with my partner for a Birthday Lunch. The total experience was outstanding.
The ambience was very nice. They have a 3 course pre-fix lunch menu. Manhattan clam chowder was excellent. The Broiled Salmon was prepared just right. Moist and crispy outside. The filet mignon was perfect. The key lime pie was fresh and very tasty. Then as I had just mentioned we were here for a birthday, they came out with a chocolate birthday cake with a candle. (no charge) That was nice and unexpected. The wait service was super, and everyone was very friendly. Overall it could not have been better and the value was excellent.

First time back since 2019 and COVID. Sat at the bar table and had Stew make me one of the best old fashions on my trip. Steak was perfect, the wine (afterwards) was great and everyone had the goal of insuring you had a great time! Perfect dining experience.
