Service at bar is excellent, service at tables depends on how crowded they are. Go by for a drink and take out 8 to 10-times per month and food is always good. Great burgers!

We enjoyed a great meal at Gallaghers. Portions were large and sandwiches were huge. We almost didn't try this place in spite of the good reviews because it didn't look very big and the outside of the building didn't impress us. Then we walked in and were pleasantly surprised. While our waitress wasn't especially friendly, another person stopped by to... More

We wandered in with very low expectations while visiting my brother in NC. It is known as a sports bar with the usual screens everywhere, which is useful at times, but it was the food and service that blew us away. The burgers, chicken grill, cold shrimp were just top notch. Vicki was friendly, helpful, sweet, and efficient in the... More

Sometimes beach restaurants have great food and ok customer service. They know that tourist have limited choices and won't be back for a year. Gallagher's is not one of those restaurants. From the hostess, to the waitress, to the manager who stopped at every table, it was obvious that they all care about the food they put out and the... More

Went to this restaurant in Surf City, NC on Saturday for a late lunch. We had fried pickles and calamari as appetizers that were delicious! The Southern Iced Tea was the best I have had in NC. We had hamburgers and mine was delicious...grilled to perfection. The service was awesome and our wait person was a nice woman who made... More

I was apprehensive--many "sports bars" pay scant attention to the food, and I was there for dinner. Not to worry ... Gallagher's is apparently known for their food and they did not disappoint. I *loved* the Irish Egg Rolls (corned beef in an egg roll). And the renowned "stuffed burger" was really excellent. OK, it was too big to actually... More

Service was a little slow. The quality of the meal didn't meet the price charged. Not a place I would visit again in the future.

We came in with a large group, our waitress was very friendly as was the staff. All our food came out together and we all had no complaints. Our waitress was always there to refill our orders and taking new drink orders. We would come back again.

Average food, however the crab hush puppies were the best part of the meal. Our waitress was one of the better waitresses of the week.
