Great Fish & Chips!

This restaurant serves our favorite fish & chips in the city! Especially tasty when fresh halibut is available.

I've eaten here quite a few times, and enjoyed it every time. We went again last night and our family ran the gamut of food choices. My daughter enjoyed her burger and fries, but said at the end he burger did taste a little fishy, maybe it was on the grill where fish had been. My older son got clam... More

Met some friends of mine that are from the area and know the place well! Seems they knew the employees by name. So that could be why the service was excellent!! The bartender even filled the baby's bottle with milk!! I ordered the French Dip and fries and I have to say, it was the absolute best Prime rib meat... More

Gallagher's in downtown Eureka is a fun, informal place for a meal and to relax and enjoy. Atmosphere is very Irish pub-like, pictures of Irish authors on the wall, Guinness and Jameson signs and beverages. Being on Humboldt Bay, the menu includes seafood items as well as the typical Irish shepherd's pie and bangers and mash sort of fare. I... More

We ate at Gallagher's Irish Pub and Restaurant in Scotia and have eaten at Gallagher's Pub and restaurant in Eureka twice on this trip. The wait staff is excellent. The antique Irish decor is really neat. They have games sitting around to play while you wait for food or just sipping your drinks.

We had a nice night playing trivial pursuits ..it was there and escaping the rain.... More

Had a real fish and chips craving, which was not satisfied by another establishments fish and chips a couple weeks ago. Gallaghers halibut and chips was AMAZING, And my friends bangers and mash was equally good. Love the decor, with the high backed barstools, and a model of the SS Carpathia (first ship to the scene of the RMS Titanic... More
