Reviewed December 22, 2023

This is the second time I dined at the Gahan House in Fredericton, and probably my last for a while. We came in shortly after 13:00, and were seated quickly. Ordered a beer and wine, and the fish cakes as an appetizer–which tasted homemade, and...I would recommend. We ordered our lunch shortly thereafter, and it took close to 35 minutes for it to arrive. I have no concerns about waiting for lunch, but the server was conspicuously absent. Our meal arrived–she had the seafood chowder and I the brown bag chicken and chips. She would recommend the chowder, I would recommend avoiding the chicken. Above average: Fish cakes and chowder. They seem to excel with seafood. The seasonal beer (pineapple sour) was tremendous. Below Average: The chicken and chips were bad. The breading was under seasoned, dark and brittle and was probably left in the oil too long–not what you want with fried chicken, and more reminiscent of that nautical themed breakfast cereal that cuts the roof of your mouth to pieces. The dipping sauce looked like honey with dried herbs mixed in, but tasted of sweet on sweet. I’d have said something to the server, but they were AWOL the entire time. I’d have bought two more beer, if someone had just asked. The place was nearly empty (four tables occupied), but the staff were preoccupied with a single guest seated at the bar. I watched two of them talk to him for nearly 30 minutes while I’m desperately wanting an iota of their time to order another drink. Alas… ‘twas not to be, and I had to stand up and ask to settle the bill with the first person I could find. With gratuity, worked out to $50 per person. Overall… a disappointment. My first visit on Tuesday was above average, but yesterday’s experience was average (leaning poor given the total cost). If the experience is a coin flip, I’m not eager to risk $100 on a bad toss, and would probably choose another of the many options in downtown Fredericton.More

We sat on the front patio, even though there is a hidden patio out back! We had excellent service, which was handled by two very nice waitresses. One tropical popsicle, one Gahan beer, a coke and Nachos, Seasoned tortilla chips, green onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, Monterey...Jack, Cheddar and our Choice of side dips: • Gahan Cheese Dip • Gahan Salsa. Everything was very satisfactory. We would go back again.More

Server was great! Prompt, kind, polite. Cooked food was bad. I ordered a bunch of appetizers and everything was overcooked. Calamari was rubber, chicken wings were burnt.

We were able to book a reservation for Saturday evening without any issues. My wife and I ordered "The Ring Bearer Burger" - kids ordered Nachos & Hamburger and Fries. We previewed the menu prior and I found an upgrade to sweet potato fries for...$4 on top of a $19 hamburger to be a little much. Not to mention, if you upgraded to onion rings, it was an additional $6. The wife and I both agreed, overall the hamburger meat seemed a little dry & the bun seemed dry. It was a good burger but it could have been a little juicier. The seasoned house fries were very delicious. The kids nachos in my opinion were a disgrace - it was literally nacho chips covered with a very thin layer of cheese (which the waitress did advise prior) - kids hamburger and fries looked good.More

We had just visited their location in St John’s and enjoyed their oyster/beer special, this location was just as good. Excellent atmosphere, they offered a great selection of oysters and the beers are excellent! We also enjoyed their Jalapeño Cheddar dip with hot pretzel bites,...very yummy. Will definitely go back when in town.More

The staff were welcoming and efficient. Food was not great. We had chicken wings and fish tacos. The server recommended the fries as a side that came with the tacos so we took that option. The food came out very quickly so that was my...first clue that it wasn't going to be great. Shame because the wings were nicely presented, and the flavors were there (especially loved the pickled veggies), but it was obvious the wings had been reheated (and not very well). We ate most of them because we had been travelling all day and it was late and we were hungry, but when the server asked if she could wrap up the leftovers we gave her our feedback on the meal, including that the fries had obviously been sitting under a heat lamp and just plopped on our plate. To her credit she arranged for one of our drinks to be deducted from the bill, which was appreciated. Still, we likely wouldn't go back there if given the chance.More

Food was hot, and tasted very good. Portions are on the small side vs price. This is unacceptable if it is somehow due to it being take out. Ordered a Mac and cheese dinner and it was the same size as the side Mac we...ordered. Used the same sized containers for both. For the price, that order was very very disappointing. We did order 2 other pasta dishes and they were very good, chorizo chicken penne and scallop fettuccine. Both were very tasty but you pay well for that taste. No complaints overall with those 2 dishes. The final order was fish tacos with side Mac. Fish tacos were flavourful but the portion size was small vs the price of competing restaurants in the area. Can not comment on the side Mac as I gave it to my son who ordered the Mac and cheese dinner and received a paltry portion. He did mention it was good however. Overall Food is flavourful and can compete against most local restaurants Portions are small Prices are too high vs the portion size at time of writingMore
