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

We just happened to come across this place. The staff was so friendly and I had the Reuben egg rolls. Oh wow! Amazing. Great bar service and wait service Will definitely go back the next time I am in town.

Visiting with family. It's their favorite burger on Topsail. I agree. Hand packed thick burger. Yum! If you're craving a burger, this is a must try.

Best restaurant!! Great menu- THIS IS NOT FAST FOOD! Chef prepared! Gotta have the Gallagher burger or the chicken option! Sweet potato fries are to die for! Peter is Awesome! Great place to meet friends. Service is always great and a fun atmosphere! One of the few beach restaurants open year round! Strongly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

While they serve my favorite side dish, sweet potato fries, 9 times out of 10 they come out burnt. My waitress knows us and says she will get us a new batch but they generally are much the same. However I absolutely love the cheeseburger with bacon and onion straws. It's delicious! They also have great appetizers and my family... More
