Good appetizers and yummy deserts. My daughter likes the fish and chips. Burgers are yummy and I'm a fan of the sweet potato fries. We go about twice a month. Sometimes the service is slow when they are busy.

I enjoyed our dinner here. The blackened Mahi Mahi was delicious and the service was good. In addition, there were foods for folks who don't care for seafood.

Inside is like any other new sports bar. It's clean and has a huge diverse menu. Food was ok, if you don't go you're not missing anything but if you do go don't expect the best dining on the island. It's a solid option but some may prefer nicer places while on vacation.

Eight of us visited for lunch, and the restaurant was not busy. Service was slow but we understood that we had a large party and there was a server training, so it was excusable. The food was good - not exceptional, which was fine. The overall prices were a bit high for the type of food and eatery. Vanilla ambiance... More

My husband and I went there for a normal dinner and the food was amazing. We ordered margaritas and they were delicious. Our waitress was amazing and so helpful. There was a manager(I assume) and he was belittling the staff and saying rude things to these waitresses. Other than that it was well worth the trip out and we will... More

This is a great place that's informal to hang out with friends after a long day in the sun to watch the game and recharge. Very friendly & helpful staff as well.

Burger platters are outstanding but dinner prices are way too high. Extensive selection of high quality burger dishes. But dinner menu other than burgers is too high priced!

Took a little over a year to get back here, but the first stop is always Gallaghers. Awesome food again and the best service on the Island. Try the air dried sausage sandwich you won't be disapointed. Thanks for the awesome service Dana!

I just moved to the area and was worried about finding my favorite teams play. No such worries here. They had my game on after checking out their daily printed sheet of sporting events in about 5 seconds. Oh, and the food is excellent as well. Shrimp scampi was getting it done for this guy. I think I found my... More
