A friend offered to buy me lunch at Gallagher's. I hadn't been there for maybe 10 years and I didn't know what I was missing! He recommended the fish & chips so that's what I ordered-they were excellent. The outside was batter coated & fried (not a bread crumb coating) and the fish was cooked through. I prefer fried foods... More

Went on 9-17 for half way to Saint Pattys day. They didn't even what day of the week it was or care about holiday. Our server was not freindly. Not the Irish spirit. The food was good' bartender does not know how to pour a guiness' had irish music playing.

Cool, historical tavern with a colorful cast if characters. Good beer prices and prompt service. Would recommend it for a brew or two while passing through.

Our group recently visited Gallagher's and had a good experience. The drinks were fantastic, our service was great, and our food was good. The only complaint that we has was that they closed the kitchen before asking us about dessert. We would happily ordered earlier in our meal instead of being limited to two options.

The fish and chips are outstanding, especially if halibut is available. I had shepherd's pie there for the first time and now it's one of my favorites

A very pretty Irish pub with good food and drinks. It's a fun place to go for drinks and a snack, even tho the full meals are good, too. Service is friendly and good. A usual stop when I visit my daughter.

After a long day driving small I wanted was a drink and some good food. Gallaghers delivered both. The food was excellent and the service by the staff was faultless. The barman told me the Guinness was good but being Irish myself and a very picky Guinness drinker I had my doubts. But I was proved wrong and it was... More

I know Gallagher's gets a lot of great reviews but I was not impressed. We were here on a Thursday evening and it was hopping and very loud. Super busy, needed more staff to keep up with this crowd! Like I said, food was so so, nothing I would return for. The bathrooms had the dirtiest, black goo on the... More

What a great find this is. The food was amazing and the service was perfect too. We had the antipasto plate for entree which was delicious. The food was so fresh. The main meal was the grilled seafood which the two of us shared. It came with grilled seafood and a baked potato each with salad. The wine and beer... More

We enjoyed dinner in this hopping restaurant. The waiter was attentive. The food was a little slow coming out. They have a fabulous house caesar dressing that I had with the mahi mahi burger (sans bun). The dressing was so good that I finished it off with my kids french fries.
