Description: Welcome to the original Gahan House, located in the heart of historic Charlottetown. We’ve been brewing craft beer, serving great food, and showcasing the warmth and hospitality PEI is famous for since 2001. When you think about Gahan, you might think Sir John A’s Honey Wheat Ale and Brown Bag Fish & Chips or a great venue for local music and the perfect place to have a meet up with friends. No matter what Gahan means to you, the common thread is it’s always an experience. There are now Gahan locations across the Maritimes and we’re proud to be the ones that started it all. Experience the beer. Experience the food. Experience the culture. Come experience Gahan.

We arrived here after a recommendation for drinks and dinner. We arrived early and by the time we left on a Tuesday night the room was packed.

Beers were great. Service was prompt and friendly.

The menu had pub food. Fish and chips served in a brown paper bag was very good. Heartily recommend.

My two running buddies and I made The Gahan House the post race stop after the PEI Half Marathon. It was a wise choice. The menu had lots of choices for carbohydrate and protein starved runners who were desperate to replace these essential nutrients. Despite the fact that lots of other runners had the same idea at almost the same time we were quickly seated by smiling, friendly wait staff who were keen to know how we had enjoyed the run. Our server Natalie quickly had use infused with coffee and took out orders while keeping up a friendly banter about the weather and previous races. I had the Montreal Smoked Meat with fries and my running buddies had a veggie burger and haddock tacos with fries as well. We had to turn down the wide selection of beers on tap but made a note of them for a future visit.

We have eaten here before so thought that we would treat ourselves to a nice meal during an overnight stay in Charlottetown. We were seated in a booth area behind the order station. The fabric cushioning on the seating area was not clean and should be replaced, preferably with something that is moisture-proof and easily to wipe clean. My husband enjoyed the bagged fish but his fries were lukewarm, and overall were limp. My philly steak sandwich was not very appetizing. It was hard to find the bits of steak buried in the overflow of thinly sliced onions and peppers. The mushrooms were canned and not very appealing. My sweet potato fries were barely warm, were limp, and not very tasty.

On the positive side, our waitress provided excellent service!

My son brought me here to try it out. He had been here before and thought I would like it. He was completely right. Great atmosphere, excellent friendly service and very tasty food. We tried the Philly cheese steak and the Montreal smoked meat sandwich. Both were excellent. It was busy even on a fall Thursday night so I can imagine the weekends. They even have high back padded chairs. Many flavors of their own beer to choose from. It was a bit noisy because it was full but nothing unbearable. Highly recommended!
