Friendly staff, great old school décor, linen napkins even at lunch. Huge selection of beers, full cocktail offering. To top it off great food. My favorite is the Reuben sandwich with homemade potato salad. Can't go wrong at Gallagher's.

It's been a few years since I moved from Eureka and I am glad that Gallaghers haven't changed. Still the best fish and chips I think I have ever had. That night they had the halibut on special.......yum. Service was excellent, server was friendly and attentive. If you are looking for great fish and chips, this is the place to... More

Had to do the fish and chips, along with the clam chowder on our holiday visit home. The clam chowder was barely warm, but shoveled it down because it would still taste outstanding ice cold. Husband had the seafood platter, which he loved because there was nothing left. The halibut and chips were fresh and tasty. Love catching up with... More

My wife and I recently spent an extended holiday weekend in Eureka. As part of this visit, we got together with some Bay Area friends who were also in the area, and went to Gallagher’s for dinner on a Friday night. Since arrival times of the others were a bit uncertain, no advance reservation was made. If you are considering... More

Wonderful seating area fully appointed. Service staff is friendly. Food was a let down however. Tried Fisherman's Platter, Fish and Chips and Fried Shrimp appetizer.

Hubby and I just got back from dinner at Gallagher's. We had the fish and chips and the Beef Stroganoff...both very good. Very nice server and the large portions.

It's a nice place but way overpriced $70 for 3 people for lunch with no alcohol I also felt the portions were a bit small we all have fish and chips I'm sorry but cod fish and potatoes are not that expensive and it was just ok probably won't go back way too expensive

We were staying at the attached hotel and front desk suggested dinner here. We were refused service 30 min. before posted closing time, not even an offer of to go or a drink!?! Even though there was at least 10 patrons eating and a couple drinking at the bar. This really got my Irish up! This establishment can kiss My... More

Only disappointment here was that the Scotch selection was above average, yet the only Irish in sight was Tullamore Dew?!? Perhaps "MacGallagher's" would be more appropriate... Otherwise, above-average pub fare. And they know how to make a proper black-and-tan.

Restaurant and hotel in a very old building, so a lot of cool antique features. Quite a few beers on tap, plus many bottled beer. Full bar if that is your preference. The fish and chips can be cod, halibut, or salmon. Chips are fresh made, not frozen. Yummy crunchy batter. They have an extensive menu. Some vegetarian options also.... More
