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.

We were a large party and Gallagher’s gave us 2 waiters. That made a huge difference! Food was outstanding. Everyone had an excellent meal and lots of fun.

Locale storico, il cibo è ottimo e il servizio impeccabile. Un po' rumoroso e caro. Ma nel complesso lo consiglio.

The food was solid but our Main entrees were brought out 5 minutes after salad. The waiter was excellent and offered to send it back to the kitchen but I couldn’t waste all that food (or let it sit under a heat lamp). That’s my biggest complaint.

Overall, enjoyed our meal. I had the wedge which was delicious and the tuna. I asked for it rare and to be seared. It was not seared but definitely rare. It was good but not great. I should’ve ordered beef. My mistake. The rest of my party had the 10 oz filet all ordered mid rare and seemed to enjoy. My teenager did not enjoy the char on hers but the bite I stole was very good. The table shared mashed potatoes and Brussels sprouts. The potatoes were very good but the sprouts were nothing special.

We did not order dessert but the ones that passed looked yummy and sized to share.

Our waiter asked if we had any time constraints and kept things moving. The timing was perfect for us to head to a show without any hurry. All in all, we enjoyed the experience.

We had reservations at 6:30, arrived a little early and were seated as soon as possible. We really appreciated that kind of service as we had a play to attend that night. Food was wonderful and abundant.

Before going to a Broadway play I took my girlfriend to this steakhouse. The atmosphere was amazing and so was everything else. The tables next to us were extremely friendly and the service was wonderful. My steak (14oz filet mignon) was mouth watering and flavorful. It may have been the best steak that I've ever had. Highly recommend!

Great service cannot overcome a horrific job by the kitchen. After a long wait, the steak shows up perfect with side dishes so cold the bake potato could not melt butter. The Brussel sprouts were to cold to eat. NO excuse at that price. Many other choices provide a better value.

We love this place. Whenever we can get to go here, we do. Besides just a good place to meet friends for dinner we also celebrate many happy occasions at Gallaghers. Birthday's and Anniversaries are the best there. The food is always excellent.

I would have given an overall 5 but: we had to wait 20 minutes for our table. The waiter made some mismatch. We were left 1 hour without any visit from a waiter at the end of our meal (before desert). But the place is great, i suppose these are occasional glitches.

This was my first time at Gallagher's. I didn't have any recommendations but I thought I heard it was great and it exceeded our expectations. I had the fillet and I must have a very tender cut. This was the best steak I've ever had! The three of us could not finish our meals but we had a play after dinner. My daughter casually said it would be nice to pick up out left overs after the show and the waiter said of course you can and we did.
I would highly recommend Gallagher's and we'll be back in the future to try some of the other tantalizing menu items.

I had lunch with three friends at Gallagher‘s prior to seeing a matinee. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient, and the bartender’s cocktails were well made. We all ordered the three-course luncheon specials, though we each ordered something different. All four lunches were fabulous. My sliced filet was one of the best filets I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and so tender I could have cut it with a butter knife. We opted for Key lime pie and cheesecake for dessert. Both were absolutely delicious. We weren’t even hungry at this point but we devoured every last crumb. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Gallagher’s and I am looking forward to returning as soon as possible.

From the time we entered to the time we exited our experience was outstanding. The servers were always on point. The food was outstanding. The restaurant had a exciting feeling. I loved the classic decor. The only downside is that we advised them we were there to celebrate 2 birthdays and they began to seat us near the busy kitchen and we were very early. We had to ask to be reseated.
