We stopped in to order a couple drinks and a small lunch for our child. Decent beer and wine selection, kids menu was OK

My husband and I are in town for one night and decided to have dinner here at Gallagher's. The fish and chips were very good as were the bangers and mash. It was very busy, we got the last table. There was a musical duo in the bar, one man on the fiddle and the other on guitar. Very good... More

Irish? Well, the do serve Harp and Guinness, but the menu could have just as easily claimed to be English - or Scottish, even. The sausage chowder we started with was good, albeit a bit of a small serving for the cost, and my fish and prawn combo was excellent. Good beer, too - would visit again.

Besides stopping here for my St. Patrick's day Guinness Ale, I enjoy stopping in Thursday's for their Irish specials. Lamb, stew, bangers they have it all, and Irish music on weekends.

After a long day it was really great to end up in a proper Irish bar that was literally in the first floor of our hotel. We did the tourist thing and wandered around looking for someplace else to eat and ended up back at Gallaghers because it was easy, and I'm glad. Food was very good. Chowder is delicious.... More

We had the opportunity to take a day and wander the old town district of Eureka, California. It was delightful to marvel at the refurbished old buildings, many dating back 100 years and more. There was a variety of stores and businesses to check out but the best was our choice for lunch. Gallagher's the nearest and best Irish Pub... More

Amazing food. Had the special fo the day, fresh-caught Halibut and chips. Fish was amazing! So fresh, perfectly fried, fries were excellent, coleslaw so fresh and crispy and not sickening sweet...perfect! Will go here again when we visit Eureka!

We arrived at about 8:30 only to be told they were closing early for the evening because of scant business. But Evan behind the bar graciously allowed us to set up with pints of Guinness and shots of Jamesons. We traded great jokes and good stories. A look around shows a fine old house. Eureka is not a charming place... More

I have to give a good review when service tries so hard, and in this case, they did. Our service was divine, such a sweet, young woman who did everything in her power to make our dining experience enjoyable. The food was delicious. Served piping hot, so tasty and portions were very generous. The pub atmosphere is unpretentious, live music,... More

The restaurant ambiance was very Irish and enjoyable to view as a tourist in this most unusual city! The food was not great but okay. If you order a Cosmo ask for extra cranberry juice and less liquor.
