We had our wedding dinner in Gallagher's. we are big foodies so the old joke about Beef or Salmon was top of our minds when we were trying to look at wedding venue options. There are not enough superlatives for this venue. So for anyone considering having their wedding dinner here- let me say that the food blew the minds... More

Gallagher's used to be one of my favourite local restaurants. I love the set up, the staff is normally friendly and the food delicious. However, I have been disappointed a few times lately and have noticed that the standards have dropped greatly. My last experience there was not great and I'm really hesitant in going back there again or recommend... More
