Best fish & chips

Best fish and chips (halibut) I've had in the USA - usually. For some reason, about 1 out of 5 times, the fries are limp. Fish is always fresh and excellent though, including grilled fish. Salads are great. Inconsistency seems to be par for the course in Eureka, but Gallagher's is the LEAST... read more

Set in one of the old Victorians in eureka, this place has the best food! There is a full bar for those who want a cocktail. The food is delicious. During season they serve halibut and chips, yum. Every Thursday is Irish day, with bangers and mash, corned beef as well as their regular menu. They serve the best French... More

Of course you expect friendly service at an Irish pub but is was one step beyond that. I was travelling with children and have yet to see the. Welcomed the way they were welcomed here. Great service, great people, excellent food.....if we didn't live in England we would visit often!

Delicious dinner in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere. Easy walking distance to Old Town and waterfront area. Prices were fair but wish they had a few more low priced options. Friendly staff.

Food was great and the staff very friendly. They have live Irish music that night we ate there. We would definitely eat there again.

This place is fake. The food is of low quality. The server didn't know anything about the menu. The food is way overpriced. Oyster shooters are nearly twice as much as other restaurants in the area. The Reuben is full of grease and fake butter. The wings were soggy and tasted like low quality chicken. The sausages were cold and... More

Our waitress didn't even know what kind of sausage she had just served us, got our order wrong, and the food was far too greasy and entirely too expensive for the quality. I would not recommend anyone to eat here. I literally feel sick after this lunch.

Great fish and chips in a cool atmosphere. The service was good.... Would recommend this place. It is a little off the main drag or tourist area.

Gallagher's was a quiet little pub just one block from the ticket office for the ferry. We enjoyed a much needed Guinness along with fish and chips and shepherd's pie. The service was quick and friendly. It would have been nice had they played a bit of Irish music instead of Spanish guitar.
