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.

Recommended by a restaurant manager in our home town. They didn’t disappoint. Food and service were excellent. Not sure what they do to their French Fries but there is something special going on. Best I’ve ever had. Steak is in contention for the best ever. Great place.

I’ve eaten at Gallagher’s on several occasions it’s a real treat when celebrating special occasions. The food is simply delicious 10/10 everything from the minute you walk through the door and are welcomed by staff is second to none. I’ve recommended Gallagher’s steak house to so many people friends, family and complete strangers it’s must if your in New York City so go on treat yourself you deserve it!!!

This was my second visit to Gallagher’s. The food was outstanding and so was the service. Unfortunately, we were a table of 6 and our table was just about in the kitchen. Very very loud and it just took away from any aboience possible. Terrible table. Very disappointed.

Outstanding restaurant with perfectly prepared steaks and great service. Wonderful place to go if you are seeing a play on Broadway. Lively crowd and it appears to be very popular. Tables are quite close together and it is somewhat noisy but everyone seemed to be having a great time.

we have been eating at Gallaghers since the 70’s. The coat check was closed, the persons checking us in were friendly, but just doing their job. Certainly, did not make us feel friendly. We visited with the pre broadway show crowd, so it was very busy. Our table made it seem we were eating with 8 other people. The Service was awesome as usual, the food always delicious, and the dessert well get the pecan pie. It’s the best dessert since the chocolate mousse. We tried the Broccoli Rabe this time and it was delicious a great change from the asparagus we usually get. All in all we love Gallaghers and thought the check it and the good bye was lacking, but otherwise if you can stand the noise and crowd you get an awesome meal

My wife and I ordered the filet cut and it was delicious. Very tender and cooked perfect. We ordered the creamed spinach and a special mashed sweet potato side. It was too much food but everything was great.

Traditional and authentic, old style American steakhouse. Service was efficient and steaks were fabulous. Sides were massive, 1 fries easily enough for 2 people. Not sure why but all the waiting staff were male, looked unusual in 2018. Very pricey but food was very good. We tried to give our waiter a cash tip but he said he preferred it to be added to credit card bill and said he expected at least 18% which would have been an extra $40 which caused a little bit of a bad taste as we left. Overall very good though.

Wonderful nostalgic steakhouse in the theater district of Manhattan. You know you're going to get a great steak as soon as you enter the restaurant and see their aging room on full display. Quite an impressive first impression. The waiters are truly professional and accommodate your every request.
Highly recommend it to anyone wanting a great steak.

One of the best steak houses in the city. Service is top notch. Have a drink at the bar before being seated. You must check out meat locker for its a priceless view of hundreds upon hundreds of dry aged ribs, roasts, and sides of beef.

Our meal was a bit disappointing in that our steaks were not cooked to our preference. Even after sending it back it still was not near our liking. Loved the service staff and bartenders, old world charm and the extras like salad and potatoes were super. But that being said it is a steakhouse and they should be able to get that right. I would still go again but be clearer and firmer about how I like my steak.

Excellent service. Unfortunately the food was not up to our expectations of a steak restaurant. The ribeye was flavorful but very chewy. The crab stuffed shrimp was tasty with a kick. We would not recommend it for the price.

We had the Porterhouse steak it was excellent! We have never had a steak as good as that one ever. The steak was great in flavour and cooked to perfection. The onion rings and fries were also delicious. The waiter service was also excellent very attentive ensuring everything was to our satisfaction. Overall highly recommendable.

Went for a birthday and loved the ambiance of the place. The history on the walls, the jazz music, the waiters' suits and attitude all attributed to a beautiful night out. Not to mention how good our steaks were. NY Sirloin and Filet Mignon. Calamari and mashed potatoes were great as well, and the birthday cake at the end of dinner was a delicious surprise. Very much enjoyed our dinner and we are eager to come back to such a nice and sophisticated restaurant.
