I was excited to see an Irish Pub & Restaurant in Eureka. I've been to Ireland and had lunch in many pubs - always good food and plenty of it! In Vancouver, BC, we used to go to an Irish Pub for lunch after church -- bangers and mash - yumm! So when I got invited to have lunch here,... More

Two of us had fish and chips and the waitress told us it was available in either cod of halibut which was fresh caught that morning! We chose the halibut and loved it. The other person in our party had a Rueben and loved it. We all were very happy with our meals and enjoyed visiting with our friendly waitress.... More

I know that fried shrimp are not the most intriguing food, but some days they just hit the spot. Gallagher's fried shrimp have an exquisitely light batter covering very large meaty shrimp. Their French dip on a Dutch crust roll is another treat. The meat is consistently flavorful and tender. The staff is ready to chat as much as you... More

We were pleasantly surprised at how delicious the food was at Gallagher's Pub! We checked into the Eagle Victorian Inn and the receptionist recommended Gallagher's and shared that they would be playing Celtic music on that night. We ordered the Fish and Chips platter, which was excellent ,and totally enjoyed the father and son group who entertained us with this... More

We ordered charbroiled chicken and portobello mushroom. Food was good. I had fries. Service was slow when it came to refilling drinks. I had a tough time getting waitress' attention. In small towns that happens about half the time so can't complain too much. The atmosphere was nice. We might go again for drinks. We are staying at the attached... More

Loved this restaurant. Great food and wonderful service. Had to try the chowder. Delicious. We had two orders of fish and chips, one with cod and one with halibut. Both were perfectly cooked, tasty and flaky. The batter was just right as well. I don't usually have room for the chips, but these were so good I finished them. The... More
