Best hamburger on the beach and nice place to sit with your family for dinner. It can get crowded but the service is good and staff friendly. One of my favorites in Surf City.

The Reuben was incredible. My burger was great; a bit over cooked but not all medium wells are the same at different places. They offer many burgers, even with jalapenos. Service was great. This is listed as a sports bar, but had a nice feel. Sort of separated by half wall. Not cheap, but not much is on the island.

My husband and I visited for lunch on a Saturday. We chose Gallagher's because we'd been here before 2 years ago and had a good experience. I wish I could say we had another good experience. We were encouraged to sit at a table at the bar, which was fine, as husband wanted to watch football on the big screens... More

Nice clean atmosphere and friendly staff. Plenty of televisions to catch the games and one in the head if you have to make a deposit. The food is good with nice portions. Lauren is a sweetheart.

The food at Gallagher's is great. The prices are reasonable. Our party of six had a variety of menu items. The hot chicken wings were very tasty; 25 wings for $23.99. Seafood was prepared perfect. The home fries and onion rings were excellent. The sandwiches we ordered; Ruben, Cheese Steak, and Burger were amazing. Lauren made sure our drinks stayed... More

Gallagher's has plenty of TV's, bar food, and an excellent wait staff. Food is always hot and good, and the beer is cold! Great place to hang out with friends or make new ones.

Husband and I went on a Tuesday night. Good TV availability for sports bar. It was clean and basic on atmosphere. Very much the local sports bar feel. Beer selection was ok with some local craft selctions. The food is where we both felt they excelled. Had cold boiled shrimp appetizer: half pound for 14.99. Seasoned expertly and terrific homemade...
