Very good burgers

If you are looking for a place to get a very good burger Gallagher's is it. Very friendly staff and I highly recommend the Royale Burger.

After arriving at Gallagher's we were hesitant to go in. The outside looked like a sketchy sports bar, but the inside was actually nice. We all thought the food was good, but not outstanding.

Good food... Weird atmosphere... Granted, it was a Tuesday night. I had the fish taco wrap - excellent, but could have used less lettuce.

Excellent service by Teresa, very attentive and personable. The food is all fresh, nothing frozen!!!! Good craft beer selection and wide variety of drinks. I had the blackened salmon sandwich and my wife had the seafood chowder. Both were delicious. The burgers are the best on the island.

Good food, good service! We arrived around 6:00pm. The restaurant was filling up by 6:30 which is always a good sign.

So after a disappointing TripAdvisor pick for dinner last night at another local restaurant, thought give TripAdvisor another try this evening. Gallagher's was a hit!! Great service by our waitress Savanna, very friendly :-) and the food was pretty good as well. The best I've had in Surf City and if I ever make a return trip, this place will... More

We love visiting Gallagher's friendly staff and great food. We love the burgers, the Irish Spring Roll appetizers, and fresh salads.

My friends and I went in here to eat and had a terrible experience. Our food took forever to come out and rather than apologizing or giving us a discount off our bill, we were just given an excuse. Where I come from, the customer is always right and should never be argued with. I would have come back had... More
