We had trouble finding anywhere open after 8 PM on a Mon. night but we're delighted to find Gallagher's. We had the Greek salads and the grilled chicken salad and they were delicious. One of us had a burger and sweet potato fries with baked beans. As mentioned, all the sides are ala carte. We all tasted both the fries... More

Good food, great service, but a little expensive. The portion sizes are pretty good, but if you want a side item (fries with a burger, salad, etc) you have to pay extra, it's not included. Overall, a good experience.

I had the fajitas and they were excellent! Delicious steak meat, nice seasoning, guacamole, lettuce, cheese, picante all included - all delicious! I also had a Caesar salad which was tasty too! My daughter ordered the chicken fried steak - fantastic!

The food here is good. The only reason I don't give them a higher rating is because you dont get any sides with your meal. If Im ordering a steak dinner and paying $25 or more for it, I expect to have get a salad or a potato. Instead you pay extra for those items.

We were recommended this place by motel where we were staying. I think it was decent but nothing special. Food was good and service was average. Small town so not many choices to pick from so this is probably as good as you'll find there.

Good service and nice menu selections but the food quality was very average. Steak was grainy and chewy. Wine selection is limited.

Went before 5PM and host was able to sit me in a quiet area. Had the fish and chips and was very good, as well as attentive service. Very clean exterior and interior.

Great ambiance. And great food too. Burgers are thick and juicy and very tasty. Friendly wait staff. Best in town and recommended to me by a few folks.

We had a party of about 30 people. Our waitress was so quick! There weren't any vegetarian choices, but a salad, stuffed mushrooms and a beer hit the spot (the place does say "grill" after all and suggests it is a burger/steak place). Everyone else said the other choices were delicious. If you want a place with a fantastic wait... More

What a lovely restaurant in the middle of a large town. The hostess and server was great! Very friendly and quick. Husband's bacon, avocado, Swiss burger was big and juicy. My tuna melt was big, but I didn't care for the American cheese. I would've preferred a choice of bread, but it wasn't a deal breaker. We'd stop here again.
