“Great Service and Beer but Food Uninspiring”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We've been to Gahan House many times and visited again on May 3 evening. The service was exceedingly fast and courteous. The beer we had was very good. However, we felt our dishes were uninspired and not very tasty. The lobster pizza was gooey; the clam chowder was a bit on the salty side and the burger was hard. At $60+ for two, with only one beer each, we left feeling very disappointed with the food served. Not sure if we'll be back as there are now many choices on the Island for great quality food. To be fair, they might just have had an off day or we ordered the wrong items that night.

“Great Pub Food Very Good Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014

I visted on April 22, I've been to Charlottetown many times but I have never visited The Gahan House, I was very very pleased, in fact in was the Trip Adviso rating that made me visit.

I ordered the Shepards Pie and it was excellent, my guest had the fish and chips and she enjoyed them.

Our waitress was Susie and she was awesome, one of the best servers that I have ever had,

Looking around tonite I see a very good staff, they are doing a very good job here.

“Good place for a quick bite and a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Stopped in for a quick pint and a little bite to eat- and were pleasantly surprised. Service was great, had a good beer menu and the décor was awesome. I will definitely go back. Had the nachos, they were excellent.

“Amazing environment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I have been at the Gahan house several times, every time the drinks are cold, the beer is amazing, the food is hot and fast, friendly service. And if you happen to be there a night there is live music, it adds so much to the environment.
