Birthday dinner

Went to Gallagher's for my sons birthday dinner. We were seated immediately. The wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. I had the pompano and it was one of the best seafood dishes I have eaten. My son had the bone in rib-eye and it was phenomenal.

The food was beyond excellence. Impeccable service and our party of 14 was more than delighted with our choice. Everything that was ordered was perfect! We will make this an annual event for certain.

The three of us were there Christmas eve night. Stakes were perfectly cooked and the plates were hot so the steak stayed at a good temperature the entire meal. Shrimp Remoulade was very good and the sauce was excellent. Potato au gratin was cheesy and very good tasting. The whole dinner was very satisfying and a wonderfull Christmas eve meal.... More

While visiting Covington for business we went to Gallagher's on a recommendation and were not disappointed. We were told that Chef Gallagher's signature dish was a pompano and even though it wasn't on the menu, the waiter quickly checked and confirmed we could order it. We weren't disappointed. The fish was cooked perfectly, the butter sauce was just right and... More

This is one of the most unhealthy restaurants my dining companion and I have visited in a loooooong time. Every item except for the side order of broccoli was swimming in butter. For appetizers, we ordered the crab cakes, and the oysters. Both were just okay. The crab cakes were swimming in butter and had a lot of breading plus... More

Met friends there for supper. Gallagher's had Pompano on the menu, which I had not eaten in years. It was absolutely delicious, and the sauce on it was an added delight. We shared the calamari appetizer and it was done in a light batter and came with both the sweet chili sauce and also a remalade sauce. Stuffed baked potato... More
