Met some friends at Gallagher's the other day. There were five adults and two children in our group. Our server Alexi was great to the little ones in our group. She provided coloring games and asked them their names. Alexi even liked the artwork the kids made. Our meal was awesome! Jambalaya filled with seafood, chicken and local sausage. Shrimp... More

Our experience was pretty good. Unfortunately, our visit coincided with the nc state and Syracuse basketball game so it was a tad noisy. But hey, that's what you get when dining at a sports bar. It comes with the territory. The food was better than expected. I ordered the portabella sandwich with a side salad. Paul ordered the Gallagher burger.... More

We spend a month at a time on Topsail Island several times a year and this is our first time trying Gallagher's. I was a little shocked they didn't have a build-your-own-platter for seafood. All they offered was salmon, fried shrimp, and the catch of the day. We didn't want fish anyway. My husband got the biggest hunk of prime... More

The place is clean, friendly staff, comfortable bar/ stools and a tiled bathroom with TV. The burger was sirloin, the bun held together through the entire meal and the vegetable medley was fresh not frozen. It was a good dining experience. However, the good feeling ended with the bill. $25+ for a burger and draft beers. I feel that was... More

Being a local of Surf City I have enjoyed most of the area restaurants. I hold back writing about places who just do not Live up to who they say they are... Gallagher's is the place where everyone is welcome. Once inside Gallagher's restaurant you will be impressed with the clean upscale look of this place. The staff is attentive... More

Good food, drinks, ambiance, value & service. Great burgers. Even the side vegetables were above average in quality, quantity & taste. After three visits we consider ourselves regulars and would go back again without hesitation. Daily drink specials are offered. The Gallagher's seafood chowder was so yummy we took some home after our meal. Not all, but many of their... More
