Beware of Gossiping Waitress

My family loves Gallagher's.Apparently they hired a new girl, Ashley.We could hear her complaining about customers and gossiping about the other employees and owner.Very unpleasant. Ruined our experience.

Gallager's is one of the few bar/restaurants that are open throughout the year in Surf City, a beach town located between Jacksonville and Wilmington NC. A great place for bar food and catching a sporting event on one of the 10 televisions or for the family to enjoy lunch or dinner in the dining room that is adjacent and open... More

Went here with a large group for lunch. Lunch menu with many sandwiches and burgers. I found the burger to be juicy and well seasoned. A good variety of side dishes to go along with such as onion rings, fries, sweet potato fries etc. Service was polite and quick. I do wish that they would have had some of the... More

Lots of TVs in the bar. Manager was friendly and staff eager to change the station so we could see the PSU game. Good bar food and beer selections.

One of the best places I've ate at the food was great. And the waiters was friendly and it didn't take long tl get your food. When I go back to Topsail Island I'll be eating there again.

My husband and I ate there last night. We shared an appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip. It had chunks a artichoke and a lot of spinach, it was delicious. We both had a specialty burger and sweet potato fries. Huge burgers cooked to perfection. The waiter was great, kept our drinks full, I wish I could remember his name.... More

Great burgers with generous portions. Service is good. Great selection of beer! Parking is a bit of a challenge when they are busy.
