Gallagher's Steak House Restaurant Review

: Photos of famous New York figures dot the walls and red-checked tablecloths top the tables at this speakeasy-turned-steakhouse that has been in business since 1927. Most people come here for the steaks, grilled over hickory logs. But the roast prime rib of beef and lamb chops are safe bets, too, and you can't go wrong with the double cut veal chops, the calf's liver steak (only on Wednesdays and Saturdays), the juicy salmon steak or the jumbo lump crab cakes. Side dishes, made up of all the standards, are buttery enough for steakhouse regulars. The cheesecake --- which can be easily shared --- lives up to expectations. The wine list is small and limited to mostly expensive Californian wines.

It's a great restaurant

This restaurant is probably the best steak you will have in New York.The meat is aged perfectly and you don't even get a steak knife,you should be able to cut it with the serrated dinner knife that is there already. So my advice is forget what the previous person said and check this restaurant out,not glamourous surroundings but great Steak!

After reading the review from Gayot we expected much more. Getting in and out of the restaurant in a timely manner was not a problem. The food was very average. I would compare it to any Ponderosa steak house throughout the country. Service was the same.....average. From the person seating you to the waiter. Would not recommend this steakhouse.
