By far one of the best restaurants my husband and I have been to. The staff was friendly and catered to us as if we were the only ones in the entire restaurant. We both started with chowder and it was so delicious I had a brief thought of licking the bowl. I then had the shrimp dinner while my... More

I ordered a Margarita that tasted like it had gone bad. The manager told me they had a great bartender and proceeded to tell me, it must be me. He argued with me for 5 minutes before he finally took the drink off my bill. If you want a bar atmosphere with good food, go to Hula's Bar and Grill.... More

Our waitress was very nice and tried hard. Unfortunately she has no control over what comes out of the kitchen or bar. We ordered lime mojito's with mint. When brought to us, they were by far the most unappealing, unappetizing drinks we've ever seen. They literally uprooted dead, mint plants and filled the glasses with them. Black stems, black leaves... More

So the place was super busy with a military party of sorts...which was absolutely fine with us. We had the seafood hush puppies to start which were great! They are bite sized and come with this "seafood butter" which I was skeptical of to being with, but it was delicious. Those were not the food poisoning culprits. For dinner my... More

Well it should be called Ashley's Place. We came in late last night and encountered the most pleasant and efficient server/waitress. Despite our constant phone calls, excessive conversations and trips to the men's room, Ashley kept a watchful eye on us so when we were finally ready to order she was right there. She was the politest waitress I have... More

This is a typical small Bar & Grill, but a good place to come with family. We were there with 2 small children. Savanna was our waitress and she was very good and attentive. My son and his family had been there before and raved about the hamburgers. They were excellent. We had the Gallagher Burger, Carolina Burger and Just... More

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.
