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.

The food, ambiance & service are incredible every time we eat here. It has become a “must go to” place every time we visit NYC.

Once a year I bring my grandchildren into the city to see a show. We always go to Gallagher's
As usual, this year the meal was terrific. We had everything from filet to lobster salad - sandwiches and dinners. We love Gallagher's!

Locale dal sapore retrò, con personale molto preparato ed efficiente. Sia gli antipasti che la portata principale erano eccezionali.
Peccato solo che al tavolo dove eravamo noi era necessario coprirsi per il gran.freddo dovuto all'aria condizionata, che invece era gradevole in altre zone del locale.

The porterhouse steak was incredible. I thought they could improve the sides. We ordered the mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. I was expecting the sides to be just as good as the main. The Brussels sprouts were over cooked and mashed potatoe was okay.

I was not expecting to like or appreciate Gallagher's, went with a friend and thought, 'ok, another hackneyed steakhouse experience'. I was very delighted with the sparkling atmosphere, the funny charming helpful waiter - and the food was great. On the menu it sounds a bit retro, but it was delicious, the wine by the glass excellent and I had a great time chatting with the father/son at the next table. I'm singing the praises all over town. I'm a food snob and have had mediocre experiences at some of the more trendy expensive places and this was my favorite meal on this trip.

Wow... What an incredible dining experience. We visited Gallagher's having extensively researched great food options in the Midtown area for our NYC trip. It lives up to every spectacular food review it has received from Eater NYC and more! The service was simply spectacular, the speakeasy ambiance and history of the place set the tone for an NYC classic dining experience and the food was amazing. Our server took the time to make some great recommendations including Mac and cheese special and bone marrow crusted filet... Wow. Highly recommended! Thankyou.

Gallagher's is a classic. Besides being a great steakhouse, it is an excellent choice for a nice lunch, at a moderate price for the neighborhood. Service is great and the atmosphere is very "New York," and very relaxing. It's easy to overlook it, tucked away on the side street. But don't forget it's there!

What a great post theater experience. Waiter was really cool. Gave us good infor to make choices. We had three people but two light eaters so,spelt one cut. The meat is outstanding. Veggie sides are great. Had the salad special and a few hoerdoevres and the whole meal was well spaced out and reasonable. Had a bottle of wine and an Irish coffee. The Irish was PERFECT. thanks for a wonderful evening.

We dined on a Friday evening at 8pm. The restaurant was very lively and very busy however we were greeted quickly by our very handsome waiter. He introduced himself as Randy. We were served promptly but not rushed. We ordered lamb chops which were FANTASTIC! I wish I had taken photos but I was enjoying them too much! We had started with a salad, chopped wedge with Russian! (We requested). We also got a side or pork belly for the salad. That’s the big secret! It’s beyond deeeeeelicious! The evening was a continuous, lively club like atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back!!!! Francis and Darius were also quite in tune with us and asked more than once if we needed anything. Wonderful and very enjoyable evening. These are very skilled waiters and it seems to be run like a very tight ship! Nice job!

What a great find! Definitely book as this place was rocking from the moment we stepped in. Obviously a local haunt for New Yorkers also and service was great. The Meat locker amased my boys, obviously not vegetarians (apologies for those of you who are - maybe not your place to be). The choice of meat was outstanding and the service was as I had expected, typical American old-school, loved it! They even brought my son a birthday cake and sang in the restaurant. Really would recommend this place.

It was great! Got the Porterhouse for two, with creamed spinach, and mashed potatoes, and a very tasty bottle of wine. The waiters were always attentive and very professional. We were in a rush because we were going to go and see a show at the theatre close by, but they brought out the food so fast, we ended up relaxing and having a great time. They brought out a nice chocolate cake for my girlfriends Birthday and also complimentary Sherry. The waiters were hilarious and made the dining experience great! I Would definitely go back there again!

Steak was undercooked, the vegetables cold and the salad limp.

We were rushed to finish with plates being removed before we finished.

Good for the bar, go somewhere else for a steak.

A bit off the grid for midtown, on the way to Hell’s Kitchen. Not much space for dinning as the bar takes a big chunk of the floor. Having a table near to bar made the area very noisy - not especially good for a relaxed chat over dinner.
The service is courteous but not not outstanding.
I had the Rib steak which tasted somewhat plain. It was served with some gravy-like sauce - which tasted rich - but made me think that without it the steak itself would be probably unremarkable.

Gallaghers does a good job at lunch time. Service is very good and they are attentive. I tried the pastrami for the first time. While the portion was large, I found the pastrami was more like corn beef except it was prepared pastrami style and the salt was too heavy.

In vacanza a New York la scelta per una bistecca seria è ricaduta su questo ristorante. Servizio impeccabile, il nostro cameriere è stato molto gentile nello spiegarci i vari tipi di carne e consigliarci nella scelta di vino e contorno, ambiente elegante, ma non ingessato, e il cibo delizioso. La bistecca più buona che abbia mai mangiato e, non esagero, la cheesecake più buona di New York (sono un’appassionata, la faccio anch’io e ne ho praticamente provata una al giorno! Hihihi)
