Clean. Large dining & bar area with table/chairs. Friendly & efficient staff! Philly steak sandwich very good but could have used a bit more filling. Bun was large, about 12 in. & so fresh! Meatball sub had 6-7 meatballs & was delicious! The ranch chips are awesome! Confectioners sugar is sprinkled on the tasty sweet potato fries!

I have never had blackened anything that tasted so bland. Service was good but iced tea where I come from (Winston Salem) is always brewed. I won't knowingly go anywhere that doesn't have amazing and fresh iced tea. The kids had burgers which were done nicely....but chicken sandwich was awful bland ...again lack of seasoning. Trivia (omg) they still do... More

Our group of six friends who meet up in Surf City every year (or so) came here. Plenty of seating so we didn't have to wait for a table which was nice. Cold beer, from a good selection of breweries was welcome on the warm day. And burgers! 5 of our 6 had burgers (the hold out went for fish... More

Husband had the wings and they were very good. I had the broiled flounder that was fine dining quality. Nicely decorated and staff was very attentive.

Nice restaurant with lots of TV's all over the place. We have eaten there three times, with the most recent visit on April 26, 2017. Their burgers are 1/2 pound and come "dressed" in many different ways and if you like sweet potatoes, accompany your burger with sweet potato fries. They also have a great chicken Caesar salad and very... More

Wed night is trivia night - added to the already fun atmosphere. It was quite busy, but didn't mind the wait. We enjoyed the Topsail salad and spinach dip. Drink refills were very slow, which would have been understandable given the crowd, but our waitress was super speedy cashing us out. Had she been that speedy refilling my husband's drink... More

Hit and miss but the appetizers and burgers are delicious. They have sweet potato fries and when they are not over cooked are slamming good. Their steak and cheese is also yum. Good place to eat and watch a game if your on the island. Really good apple desert also.

Eat lunch here occasionally and enjoy their appetizers and burgers. Always a pleasant meal. The service can be a bit slow when crowded.

We went to watch the Super Bowl. It was a group of 8-10 of us. We had a big table. TVs in every direction. No difficulty seeing the game. Service was great. Rather quick and the food was delicious. Moderately priced and they even had bucket of beer specials. Great idea! Definitely a return warranted.

Although our basketball team lost it was a great time at gallaghers. 6 of us enjoyed numerous items in the extensive menu. Mussels, shrimp and chowder were great . Flounder and fries were good. Nothing was left of the Rueben sandwich. Crab hush puppies were just hush puppies with an old bay butter. Beer and wine selections were great. Our... More
