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.

Excellent host Justin and our fantastic waiter Michael. Many choices of steak and specials. Each course starting with our salad then appetizers and steak is what you should expect; fresh and delicious. Will definitely be back for Gallagher’s soon!

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.

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!

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!

As always Our dinner at Gallagher’s was amazing. The staff is not only professional and knowledgeable, but exudes charm of the past. Their meat is outstanding and is always prepared to perfection. We are already looking forward to our next visit at Gallagher’s.

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.

Food was good but overpriced. The service was very fast and efficient. The exaggerated price decreased the overall quality of the dinner.

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.

Probably the best steak house in NYC. Not too salty, no extra butter like other steak places. They have all the classics. Great creamed spinach without too much nutmeg, baked potatoes etc.

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.

My wife and I and our 2 sons were visiting NYC from Georgetown, Ontario and had a fabulous experience at Gallaghers.

The wait staff was very attentive and the food was impecable.

We will definitely return.

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)

I was dining alone between segments of Angels in America. I had a terrific martini an excellent rib steak and friendly, unobtrusive service. The only disappointment was the Caesar salad; it bland and not up to the rest of the experience.
