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.

On the awesome side - our server pulled a Guinness with perfection. Perfect head. The reason we thought it was Foofoo - bangers and mash were to pretty. Bangers were ok, but more pretty than authentic. Scallops were nice and tender, but fried with a thick coating. We love traveling in Ireland, but this restaurant didn't remind us much of... More

What a wonderful treat it was to come here on a Thursday night after a long drive down the coast. Our waitress was as friendly as she could possibly be! We ordered the fish and chips and they were delicious! We were also treated to a wonderful musical duo who played Irish music. It was the perfect end to our... More

Interesting dichotomy- the front half of the establishment looks like what you'd expect from an Irish Pub, the back half looks like an American Restaurant. The food is good- the Fish and Chips excellent and the Shepherds pie great. Service was good and after 360 miles in one day, it was refreshing.

The service here is really amazing - they waited on us hand and foot and were very prompt. Also, the fish and chips were some of the best I've had anywhere, not just Eureka. My wife also had a soup and salad and really liked it as well. Like a typical pub, they had a number of beers on tap... More
