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 purpose of dinner yesterday was to celebrate my mother's birthday. This was my first time being a patron at Gallaghers and I would recommend to family and friends and I will be returning myself. I ordered the shrimp and lobster dumplings and that was the first time I ever had dumplings, they were great. Mom had the stuffed jumbo shrimp and I had the NY sirloin we shared fries and I had a side of spinach. We were both full and happy the food was excellent and the restaurant was buzzing with Christmas spirits.

Food was excellent but the service had a lot to be desired. We got there at 4:50 and we’re seated quickly, bread and water was brought quickly, our server took our order around 5:20 this is where things fell apart. The guests on either side of us were seated around 5:10 and ordered way after us, both received their salads and meals before us. We finally received our food at 6:15. We never dreamed we would have trouble making it to the Lion King play on time. Like I said the food was outstanding but we were so stressed that we had to rush eating. We mentioned it and we were offered a free dessert but we said we don’t have time and left. I’m not sure why my husband left a good tip. I guess his sprained ankle and thinking about now having to rush to the play caused him to lose his mind.

Incredible! The best creamed spinach we’ve ever eaten. The hash browns were amazing. We ordered 10 oz filets and they were so tender we could cut it with a fork. Peppercorn Makers Mark sauce was so good.
Definitely will eat here again the next time we’re in NYC. Truly one of the best steaks ever!!!

This is a very expensive restaurant but it is worth it! The steaks are incredible - cooked perfectly. The sides are sharable with 2 or 3 people. The service is outstanding. And don’t miss the ice cream - best I have ever had.

Don’t go with kids! They don’t allow strollers, so if you have a newborn you can’t absolutely dine at Gallagher’s. They ask me to put my 5 months child on the chair 😳 or the keep him on me during all dinner. Absolutely unacceptable!! Never again in my life only because they did not had respect for my child and me

We were in NYC to celebrate our 50th anniversary and thought Gallegos was the perfect place to splurge and we were not disappointed! Food and services were great, steaks were fantastic. Both our server and a neighboring diner took our picture for posterity! Highly recommend!

Server didn’t arrive to our table 10 min after sitting. Didn’t bring a drink menu. Kept bumping into my girlfriend. He didn’t wear his mask like the rest of the staff. We ordered some starters and hadn’t gotten halfway through eating it and our entrees came out and I asked, “ what do you want me to do?” He said move your food. I work in the restaurant industry and I saw on the bill that he had it coursed out and he fired to drop on top of our first course. My steak was dry and not cooked medium rare. The server and SA disappeared for like 20 minutes . We asked for the bill. We paid and the SA picked up the signed copy and opened it in front of us showing the server the tip. Totally tacky and unprofessional. Had to ask multiple times for water. Never coming back.

The restaurant is very nice, the staff are very nice, but the noise level was out of control and the food was excellent, except for the steak. The steak was very fatty and had absolutely no flavor as if the cook forgot to season it before putting it on the grill. The steak was very tender, but had absolutely no flavor at all. Very unfortunate since I've had high hopes and read good reviews. I hope thus was just an isolated incident.

Rick, our server was exceptional. He was so helpful in making recommendations and was a delight. He even surprised us with a small chocolate raspberry cake for my wife's birthday. It was the perfect 1st NYC at Christmas experience for her.

Excellent old-school steakhouse in theatre district! Steaks were amazing and perfectly sized for sharing. Great wine list and attentive service. We were seated quickly and out in plenty of time for our show! If you love classic steakhouses, this is your spot!

This was an outstanding deal for pre-matinee lunch. Prix-fixe three courses were only $29, including a perfectly cooked filet. I was amused--and pleased--when the waiter asked if we wanted the steaks medium or medium-rare. The crust was nicely charred, while the center was perfect red. The Caesar salad was beautifully dressed and crisp, but not for those who do not like a lot of sardines. The cheesecake and key lime pies are house made. Both looked perfect and the key lime was excellent. I'll get a lighter meal next time and try the cheesecake. Too bad most of my friends shy away from red meat these days. I could live there.
