Steakhouse
Founded by former Ziegfield girl Helen Gallagher and the colorful gambler and sports enthusiast Jack Solomon, Gallaghers opened as a speakeasy and steakhouse in 1927. At that time, the height of Prohibition, a good stiff drink and a great steak were hard to find in New York – except, of course, at Gallaghers.

New Yorkers come for the world-class cocktails and incredible steak – prime beef dry-aged for 21 days in Gallaghers’ legendary windowed meat locker. The combination of all-natural dry aging and cooking it to perfection over hickory coals makes for a steak unlike any other found in New York.

Gallaghers’ guests are welcome in a wide variety of attire – from elegant casual to business suits. We respectfully request that you refrain from wearing hats, sports jerseys, tank tops and shorts.

TAKEOUT AND DELIVERY: Grubhub, Seamless and DoorDash

I'm always happy to pay for a great dining experience; however, I was disappointed that a highly recommended steakhouse wouldn't have a searing station. My order was a ribeye prepared "black-n-blue" (...or Chicago style). It came as simply a cold steak with a few grill marks on it. A "loaded" baked potato included only butter?!?! I hate to say it, but I would recommend Ruth's Chris (chain restaurant) over Gallagher's.

Everything I’d expect from a classic New York steakhouse. Service was top notch, ambience was great, and the food was phenomenal. Had a prohibition feel, while the open kitchen made it feel updated and well kept 10/10 would repeat

Gallaghers steaks are delicious and beautifully prepared. The staff provides excellent service and is very accomodating. They did a wonderful job of explaining the different cuts of meat. We had a great experience at our family dinner.

Gallagher’s attentive service is as outstanding as its food. Great care is invested in both. The surrounds and ambiance are classic, sporting old world charm. The entire staff is welcoming and our entire party felt very appreciated. Can’t wait to return.

From the moment we walked in until the moment we left my wife and I felt seen and served and honestly like part of the family! We love this steakhouse and it’s rich history and Stu made us feel like we’ve always been part of it. And of course the food, wine and cocktails were incredible!

My wife and I each had filet mignon done to perfection and sides of sautéed mushrooms and onions, and onion rings that were outstanding. As it was our anniversary (#41) we were given a complimentary dessert - a nice touch! We live 200 miles away but whenever in NYC Gallagher's is a must!

There are perhaps a couple of more famous steakhouses in NYC, some of which deserve that fame and some of which don't, but it really doesn't get better than Gallagher's. This is everything that a NYC steakhouse should be. When you close your eyes and imagine a classic NYC steakhouse experience, Gallagher's is what you see. Get the Rib Steak, some Lyonnaise potatoes (and if you must, a salad or vegetable) and revel in the perfectly cooked, carnivorous goodness. You won't regret it.

Very lovely evening. Food was delicious and our table was perfect. The only thing that would have made the evening even nicer if the sound for music had been a little less as it was hard to talk to guests across table.
