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.

This place has the best lunch deal in town - three course price fix with exceptional food and wonderful service. The atmosphere is real old-school and just lovely.

One of the best places to eat! Everything was cooked to perfection. It was my first wedding anniversary and my husband took me here. What a great choice. When I come back to New York I will definitely be coming back to this place.

We had a reservation and were promptly seated. Very busy restaurant on a Sunday evening, goes to show how good they are. We ordered two slabs of bacon for appetizers, they didn't taste like bacon to me, but they were tender and delicious. My spouse ordered a 14oz filet mignon and I ordered lamb chops along with mashed potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and asparagus. We topped it off with a creme brûlée and a cappuccino for dessert. The food was excellent. We also ordered a bottle of wine which paired well with our food. The atmosphere was loud, restrooms clean and the service very good. I recommend this restaurant for anything except a romantic date.

My husband and I went to dinner at Gallagher ‘s after a Broadway show and we were extremely delighted with the overall experience. We Googled restaurants near the theatre and took a shot. We seen it was a landmark and a favorite among New Yorkers, and travelers alike and for good reason. Although it was extremely busy, we were seated promptly, food was amazing and it’s a steak house, so prices for accordingly, but are extremely worth it. If you’re in the theatre area, and looking for a great steakhouse, Gallagher’s is a must try!

Make sure to dress extremely nice, if not they look at you like a second class citizen and give you a nice table by the bathroom. But...the food was amazing.

We go to New York annually to celebrate my birthday. We talk about checking out other fine dining options, but we love Gallagher’s so much, we always just make our reservations there. You are treated wonderfully, the food is delicious, the location is perfect for dining before the theatre. Love it!

I am a steak snob. Nobody cooks a steak like I can. Until I ate at Gallagher’s. Everything was above my expectations. It was a very special experience. I will eat there every Tim I go to nyc. I was seated with a view of the kitchen. They invited me to walk through. Amazing!!!

Gallaghers was everything i thought it would be. We had reservations for dinner pre-show and when our excellent waiter Adam gave us the menu he asked if there were any time concerns we had at which time we told him we had a show on 43rd at 8. Our reservation was at 5:15 so we had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner. Adam and Siam were the best. They took care of our every need and visited the table often to be sure we were well taken care of. Hats off to the chef and his team also, the food was outstanding. We will definately be back. You can't go wrong.

Have visited Gallagher many times- has always been a favorite- a go-to spot whenever we are in New York. This visit was well-below wht we have come to expect from Gallaghers. It was obviously not their best effort. Service was very slow. We sat for a long time before being acknowledged. Drinks and salads came out, then after salads we waited 40 minutes for entrees, finally inquired to the waiter about the long wait. Meals finally came out- and the food was very good- as usual. However, it was a somewhat uncomfortable environment as we could clearly see and hear the frustrations of the staff- waiters and bartenders visibly irritated and yelling at one another. Not their finest service.

Frank, our server was outstanding. He was friendly and personable. His service was excellent. The steaks were grilled perfectly and were delicious. I had noted on our reservation that this was for my wife's birthday and I did not say a word. They came out with a cake for her and she was quite surprised. Finally, we had gotten to our hotel late from flying in to JFK and were not going to make our appointed time. I called the restaurant and the person who answered the phone stated that he would keep our reservation and would get us seated ASAP after we arrived. He did. We were seated within 5 minutes. This place was a very positive experience. They know customer service.

Asked for medium rare on a premium special tomahawk rib steak. Came back rare with a stone cold center. Asked them to address, so they briefly warmed it up and brought it back. Was with a senior executive customer so didn’t make a bigger stink, but instead of fixing it they tried to put perfume on a pig and ruined a good steak and a dining experience.
Disappointing and embarrassing after touting Gallagher’s as a contender for great steak in NYC.
