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

What a great place to catch up with old friends. Easily worth the cost with attention paid to every detail. The service was beyond exceptional, leaving us almost feeling like family. Oysters, tuna, bone in filet, layered chocolate cake all phenomenal and credit to the staffs knowledge and passion for their craft.

Best old fashion around.
Excellent rib steak and bone in filet.
Mashed potatoes and broccoli were perfectly cooked.
NY cheese cake with strawberry sauce was out of this world.
And the coffee was freshly made and tasted so good I drank it black.

I went recently for my birthday dinner and really enjoyed myself. Although we had to wait quite a bit after being seated to get any service everything after that was great. Everyone we came into contact with was full of positive energy and made you feel like a valued guest. The food was great and they have the best lamb chops I’ve ever had. I would definitely return and recommend anyone wanting to give this place a try should ‘

Gallaghers has been a staple for us for many years now. It’s always a solid choice for a date night in Midtown. We have eagerly awaited Gallaghers to reopen and we got a reservation to celebrate a week late Valentine’s Day date. As always, the drinks (52nd St Old Fashioned), food (bone in filet mignon, roasted brussels, Mac and cheese, key lime pie, layered chocolate cake), and service was exceptional. All guest were well spread out and all COVID precautions were being followed perfectly. Once again, a great night at one of our favorites.

Gallagher's has been one of my favorite restaurants for years because of the great food and hospitality. Now that indoor dining is open I am so happy that I was able to support them. The service has always been great, and even with all the regulations in place the service was phenomenal. I went out for an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend and they made the night very special and delightful. They have excellent COVID precautions, such as sealed utensils, social distancing, and mandatory masks for staff and patrons. I would definitely recommend dining in at Gallagher's.

Overall this place is great, only spot in the city where steaks are prepared on a grill with wood chips. Steaks were cooked just the way we requested, great oyster selection, and our waiter Gianni was great. He was courteous, attentive, pleasant to converse with, and made sure all the food and drinks came out in a timely manner.

I took my parents here for their 47th wedding anniversary. We had a lovely evening. The service was impeccable (in my opinion, it sets Gallaghers apart from other steak houses in the city), and the food was delicious. I had the 14 oz. filet mignon which was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Honestly, I would come back just for the atmosphere alone: dimly lit, quiet, and Stan Getz playing in the background. It's a classy joint. Dining here was a wonderful experience!

One of my great delights in restaurant going is finding an old place that is still vibrant and maintaining its standards. Finding the former is very difficult; the latter well-nigh impossible. Gallaghers excels on both counts. It offers an exceptional three course prix fixe lunch, with numerous enticing choices . All food is of impeccable quality, skillfully prepared and served in the grand manner with trolleys delivering the food. Portions are generous and the service both professional and eager to please. Can't think of a nicer ambience in any NY steakhouse. A tragedy that at a Friday lunch, we were the only patrons the entire time. My only complaint, and a minor one is would like to see more wine choices under $100. This exemplary restaurant deserves a great deal better.I feel very bad for them. Plan to join them as often aspossible if I can corral friends in these difficult times.
