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

The best experience we could have asked for hands down. We celebrated our one year anniversary here, and it was 100% worth it. The food was stellar, the service was incredible, and the overall atmosphere was fantastic! We will definitely return in the future.

The Steaks were exactly what you want from a NY Steak house. I expected to have a good steak, but the service and the environment were really what made the trip a special treat. I have lived in NYC for four years and haven't made a point to go to one of the classic steakhouses and I'm so glad that I did.

We enjoyed a great meal at Gallagher’s. Frankly, we made the reservation for convenience and had worried about food and service in the tourist area.
However, the food, ambience, and service were outstanding; they take nothing for granted.
The featured steaks cooked over hickory wood deliver rich, fantastic flavor. Don’t miss it!
Lamb chops and curried cauliflower were standouts. The wine list is well chosen and well priced.
Fareed and Juan are a great waitstaff team. They have “old-school” skills and a friendly warm style.

We were so happy to return to Gallagher’s after 20 months due to Covid. The service from Leo was perfect, as always. We enjoyed both of our dishes and the great atmosphere. Hope to visit again on our next trip from D.C.

Super buena, desde que llegué con mi esposa, nos atendió el Sr. César A. de manera especial. Quiero agradecer a César por ayudarnos a pasar un rato alegre en el cual estaba celebrando mi cumpleaños y éste me sorprendió con un bizcocho y una vela cantándome feliz cumpleaños. Tremendo ser humano y definitivamente cuando regrese espero contar con su presencia. Gracias a todos en el restaurante y en especial al Sr César… Dios te cuide.

Food was very good.
I had the lamb with mash potatoes and creamed spinach.
Wow, the meat was tender and juicy. Big portions for lunch.
Wedge salad was fresh and mouthwatering.
I also had the Margarita and it was tasty.
Cheesecake was decadent.

My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary dinner. The vibe is upscale but while maintaining that old school steakhouse feel. Classic and classy. I had the filet with garlic mushrooms, he had the NY Strip, a salad and shrimp cocktail (which were giant).
Everything we ordered was delicious but what really elevated the experience was the attentiveness of our server (Guillermo was his name I believe). He has mis-heard my steak temperature.
Instead of placing blame on any other reason, he held himself accountable, apologized,had them re-fire the steak (which was delicious)and genuinely seemed to care that there was an error.
We were not at all upset but appreciated so much the way he handled it as well as the manager who kindly stopped by to check on us.
We would come back for the food next time we are in NYC but even more so, we would come back for the kindness and hospitality.
We highly recommend!

Amazing service e quality of meat. Very tasteful and I do recommend. A little pricey but considering NYC is an expensive spot site so it’s worth. 1 piece serves well 2 person, so pls do consider that.

Food was excellent! Got the porterhouse for 2, melted in my mouth. Went there for my boyfriends bday and they surprised him with a mini cake as well as the dessert we ordered(NYC cheesecake which was delicious and I’m not a cheesecake person). Great staff. It has an old time NYC vibe that I love. Def would recommend for anyone looking for some great steak! Loved it there. And so did my boyfriend. He loved it too!

This was the first time my family had been to this establishment and CERTAINLY will not be the last time either. Top notch in every department and detail. And, if you have the privilege of having Robert as your waiter, consider it an added bonus to the entire experience. Do yourself a favor and visit this steakhouse!

Celebrated my birthday there this past weekend. Food and service was fantastic. The experience was truly a throw back to what a true chop house should look like. Only small negative is that we were dressed up and was disappointed to see patrons in jeans, tee's, etc. But these are the times we live in. We still enjoyed ourselves and hope we didn't stick out too much! Overall the experience and meal was outstanding!

We arrived a few minutes before our reservation time and the maitre de looked at his book with questions in his eyes. He brought another man over who asked again if we had reservations (even though the first guy had already said my husbands given name…not his nickname). We were seated at a table for four and when the waiter brought the menus, he asked about the rest of our group and was surprised when we said only the two of us. We ordered wine and after a full 20 minutes without receiving our wine, my husband got up and spoke to the manager. The manager came over and spoke to the servers, apologized to us and said the drinks would be on them. However, it was over 10 minutes more before the wine came. In addition, the cart with other peoples food bumped into the back of my chair 3 times before I asked that person to please not bump into my chair again. They then came and moved our table over a bit.
The food was outstanding. We had the porterhouse steak. The sides we ordered of the Lyonnaise potato and the mushrooms were very good and very large portions. They also brought a complimentary fruit plate after the meal and the waiter apologized while also telling us how difficult it has been.
