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 never disappoints. It is our favorite steak house. My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary with our daughter and boyfriend. The service deserves 7 stars, not 5. The porterhouse steak for 4 was outstanding.

This is the way dining should be! A throw back experience that alludes to days gone by- dining where you can take hours to enjoy the experience of the wait staff, amazing tastes and ambiance of a real steak house.

Went to Gallagher’s to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The service was excellent. The food was fantastic. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the sides were amazing! And they brought her a chocolate cake for her birthday :)

They run like clockwork—everything moved swiftly but we didn’t feel hurried. Our waiter Juan was really helpful and kept service flowing. The corn special side dish was the best I’ve ever eaten. Our steaks were perfectly cooked — and my husband is hard to please. We are wondering why we haven’t been before but certainly will plan to come again.

Tomahawk was not really great. Even the portion that was cooked right the steak was not tender. The cheesecake was outstanding but you don’t go there just for that!

We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The waiter was very helpful and gracious. He helped with the menu and wine list. My rib steak was fantastic and cooked to perfection. My wife had jumbo shrimp which were also fantastic ( for a steak house). Overall a great experience and wonderful food.

We love in Florida. We were in NY for fashion week. While we were there, our daughter turned 14. She requested this restaurant because we’ve celebrated our older sons boat there before. The ambiance is perfect. It’s a very beautiful, old school setting. I don’t care for minimalist and modern design. Gallaghers has all the elegance and beauty you woods expect to find in a high end steak house. We had a late reservation and thought it might effect our service. It didn’t. Our server was absolutely amazing and so attentive! He made the perfect suggestions of wine pairings, side dishes, and cut of steak. Even though it was late, he was so kind and took his time. The food…WOW, it was the best steak I’d ever had. You could literally cut it with your fork. Everyone’s was amazing, we tried them all! The side dishes were exquisite and the desserts were heavenly. I’m not sure of we liked the food the best, or our server. He was so warm and engaging. We’d go back for either one. This turned out to be an excellent dining experience. Can’t wait to do it again!

I go to Gallaghers whenever I am in New York City, and up until this last visit have never been disappointed. During my visit yesterday, while the service was excellent, I had an issue with my entree. I ordered my fillet on the bone done medium. When it was delivered, about half the steak was medium and the rest toward the bone was very rare. I asked the waiter to have the kitchen cook it a bit more. He apologized profusely that it was not done to my request, had the kitchen grill it a bit more. When he returned with it, I tried it again - and it was still rare. I was disappointed that they could not get it right. At that point - after an excellent appetizer of salmon, and delicious sides of mushrooms and creamed spinach, I did not seek a third attempt to cook it correctly. I have not experienced this level of disappointment at Gallagers before, so I do intend to go back and hope that this experience will not repeat itself.

Hadn't been to Gallagher's since 1981 and I was not disappointed. The food was better than great and the staff couldn't have been more attentive. Had a great repoire with Robert and Vincent talking sports and how to get around the subway. Very helpful and very friendly. Do not miss a chance to eat there yourself!
