Amazing street with music in every pub and restaurant . Wonderful experience. Great food, great drinks and so many different types of music and foods. Brodericks is my favourite with music every day.

I mean if you are in St. John's, you have to visit the infamous George Street. To be honest, I'm not quite sure what the hype is. Lots of old pubs mainly, that could use a sprucing up. Not comparable to the bar district in Dublin and I actually prefer Water Street for better food and nicer pubs. It wasn't even as busy as Water Street while we were in town.

George Street May be alive at night but stroll Water Street during the day for funky sops and places to eat. It is a summer pedestrian area so it is traffic quieted and fun to admire the buildings from the street.

George street is a "must see," when visiting St Johns NFL. We had a lovely stroll all along George st. on a beautiful September afternoon. Very interesting, and then go for a walk down Water Street, and visit many shops and eateries.

Everything in St. John’s/Newfoundland is excellent. People are friendly and welcoming in. I was there for a business trip. Definitely going back for vacation.

We might have missed it timing wise (week before school started) but the Sunday and Monday night, the street life was dead! I think Covid hit St. John's hard, half of the buildings are boarded up or have a ton of graffiti markings. The bars that were open looked great, but we didn't stop in as it was super quiet.

Don't go unless you are under 25. Cheesey College Bar atmosphere. Two guys fighting in the street- one knocked unconscious and the other ripped his shirt off and flexed down the street while 15 girls swooned. Not Newfoundland's greatest...

DEFINITELY don't come with families/kids/teens.

Even a visit during the day is a worthwhile experience for a bite to eat, a drink and taking in the art and design of this small part of the city. Get there early in the day and you may see the 'clean up" from the party the night before.
