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 is always a treat. The service is perfect, the food is great and the ambiance is wonderful. It’s one of NY’s best steakhouses. We have been there many times and we’ve never been disappointed.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left my wife and I felt seen and served and honestly like part of the family! We love this steakhouse and it’s rich history and Stu made us feel like we’ve always been part of it. And of course the food, wine and cocktails were incredible!

My wife and I each had filet mignon done to perfection and sides of sautéed mushrooms and onions, and onion rings that were outstanding. As it was our anniversary (#41) we were given a complimentary dessert - a nice touch! We live 200 miles away but whenever in NYC Gallagher's is a must!

There are perhaps a couple of more famous steakhouses in NYC, some of which deserve that fame and some of which don't, but it really doesn't get better than Gallagher's. This is everything that a NYC steakhouse should be. When you close your eyes and imagine a classic NYC steakhouse experience, Gallagher's is what you see. Get the Rib Steak, some Lyonnaise potatoes (and if you must, a salad or vegetable) and revel in the perfectly cooked, carnivorous goodness. You won't regret it.

We were in New York for the Belmont Stakes Race. We didn't win, but we had a fantastic dinner at Gallaghers Steakhouse. The food was excellent, and the service was great; everyone was so happy to take care of us.

Very lovely evening. Food was delicious and our table was perfect. The only thing that would have made the evening even nicer if the sound for music had been a little less as it was hard to talk to guests across table.

An absolutely phenomenal dining experience. Our server, Nick, was attentive throughout the meal, charming with humor and exerted notable efforts to make our time memorable. This steakhouse exceeded our expectations across all facets. We had the porterhouse for two, surf and turf (a special), oysters and clams (raw bar), three sides (mac and cheese, broccoli rabe, and creamed spinach) with a delightful bottle of Malbec wine - every bite delectable! All work staff were friendly and professional. We were greeted with warmth upon entrance, frequently checked on for comfort throughout the meal, and showered with cordial good-byes when departing. Overall, I highly recommend dining here as it is truly nothing short of extraordinary. Cheers and thank you to Nick, the work staff of Gallaghers, and future diners!!

Everything was great, especially the server who was very attentive.
The only thing I was somewhat disappointed in was the pecan pie I had for dessert. I felt it was a bit dry.

I brought my boyfriend to Gallaghers for his birthday dinner and they did not disappoint! Upon entry our temperatures were taken, there was a hand sanitizer station and a log book of guests’ contact information in efforts to track/notify patrons in the event guests came in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID 19. Masks were worn by all staff members and patrons who weren’t seated at their table. The staff we encountered from door to table was amazing. Everyone was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu items. The decor and ambiance gave old school steakhouse vibes. There were lots of black and white photos throughout, displaying the true history of the place. Our waiter recommended the appetizer (crispy pork belly) and soup of the day (New England clam chowder) and both were delicious. The pork belly was by far the best I’ve had! We ordered the rib steak and filet topped with blue cheese crust. Both were cooked and seasoned to perfection. Neither steak needed steak sauce, but I was curious about tasting their house made steak sauce...so good! Our waiter suggested the Kenwood Cabernet to pair with the steaks and he hit it on the nail! We were constantly checked on by staff members throughout the night and I loved how everyone knew and acknowledged we were celebrating his birthday. After dinner they brought out a mini chocolate layer cake with a candle and wished him a happy birthday. The evening turned out perfect! Gallaghers has become a new favorite steakhouse of mine :)

The dinner my son and I had at Gallaghers was unfortunately ruined by a table of six drunken men sitting directly behind us. The were loud, obnoxious, rude and swore consistently, much to the dismay of the guests sitting in the area. Based on this, it’s unlikely I would return to Gallaghers.

The food here is consistently great, never a doubt about that. Service tends to be a bit less attentive, although that changed last night when we were served by the Johnny Di Roma and Melvin team. Johnny and Melvin brought a new type of experience to our favorite NYC spot, and we couldn't be more thankful for them and their hospitality. Changed our view on the service end for the better. So happy to see Gallagher's back in full swing post pandemic. Looking forward to our next visit.

Big thanks to Johnny and Melvin! Much appreciated.

Place was great, food was average and the service was really really poor. I’ve had to ask for a manager maybe twice in 25 years and this was one. It took him 45 minutes to tell me the 525 bottle wine was sold out then another 20 to bring another. The steaks came before the salad and the waiter sat them on a trolley next to our table to wait. Granted the manager took the food back and made new. It was a simple fact of the waiter could have cared less about being there and made it painfully obvious we were an afterthought. I was extremely disappointed as my whole family was excited to be there. We won’t be back even after a 1000.00 tab. It was a comedy of errors from the moment the waiter came to the table. He spent 95% of his time at the POS terminal.
