We had a great experience at Gahan House this week. The food was excellent, the atmosphere was inviting with muted lighting and our server Charlotte was friendly and efficient! My wife and I had PEI Mussels as an appetizer, fresh and flavorful. I had the...Coconut Chicken Curry with half rice, half fries. It was delicious, especially the curry sauce which was amazing. My wide had the Beef Melt which was piled high with beef. She said it was great as well. We shared a lemon bar with our coffee for dessert which was good. All in all a 5/5 worthy dining experience.More

I had an appetizer of PEI mussells, which were delicious, and the pan-fired Haddock, also an excellent choice. It was in the middle of the Moonlight Bizarre, so there were a lot of people dining, but the service was very timely and everyone was so...courtious. Our waitress was at our table asking if everything was good and offereing to fill our waters and get any more beer. Great place for casual dinner.More

My family went to Gahan House for dinner to get our seafood chowder fix and were not disappointed! The fish cakes and haddock tacos were amazing too. Will definitely recommend to everyone making the trip. Hope to be back. Thanks Alicia for the great service.

We were here for just one day on a cruise stop. Our niece lived nearby and recommended we meet here for lunch - and it was a great choice! Service was excellent (Our bill indicated her name was "Steele") and the food was really good....It had a great atmosphere and we would definitely go there routinely, if we lived nearby.

We chose this place because of its patio in the shade on a hot afternoon but the food was such a bonus. We all had something different but all enjoyed out meals and service was top notch. Beet salad was fantastic.

I do not usually write reviews, good or bad, and it pains me to write one now for one of my favourite restaurants. I love the Gahan House main restaurant, I go there frequently. But today I went to the new Food Truck at the...container village and I was thoroughly unhappy with the service. I ordered a chicken sandwich. Now-- I get it-- if you are in a restaurant service can be slower. But this is fast food lol! I would even excuse a wait time of a 10-15 mins for a food truck. No biggie. But it took over half an hour to complete my order, and there may have been 3 orders fulfilled in my time waiting there, at most. Key word being "may." It was painfully slow, and no updates were made on the process. The person sitting at the cash was on his phone ffs. At around the 20 minute mark the chef went for a smoke break even! Obviously getting the job done in a timely manner was not important for him. When the food did finally come out yeah it was good. And yes the staff said a pretty cursory "sorry." But it was absolutely ridiculous that a chicken sandwich, which cost $14 by the way w/o french fries, took anywhere close to that long and no compensation offered. So yeah, definitely go to the regular restaurant! Just not the food truckMore

The experience at Gahan was enjoyable in every regard. Our server was friendly, but not overbearing. Food arrived hot and in a timely fashion. Fish tacos are on lots of menus uptown, but I have to say Gahan tacos are some of the best! Their...french fries are really great as well; perfectly fried and salted. We had a spot on the patio, so we enjoyed the summer weather too. The only very minor critique is that the picnic tables could use a wipe-down; it's natural to have some debris on outdoor tables, but skip the bird poo ;)More

We went for dinner and were greeted by awesome staff. Our bartender and server Sam was attentive, engaging. He was knowledgeable and advised us on the menu with recommendations based on our input. He was spot on! While there we were entertained by a local...performer by the name of Derek Graham. We felt fortunate that we arrived when we did.

Had a relaxing lunch on the street patio. With a high railing and flower boxes it was almost impossible to tell that we were actually sitting in the parking area of the street and with the full tree cover overheard it was really lovely on...a summer day. Our server was excellent; the food was good, as was the beer. I had the Sidney Street Oatmeal Stout (excellent) while my companion had the Raspberry Sour which he liked enough to order a second. Our server also offered to bring me a taste of the Iron Bridge Brown Ale (chocolate overtones) which I would recommend equally with the stout. My only complaint would be that the fries were not fresh cut and I asked for a component of my meal (fish tacos) to be left off and it wasn’t but otherwise a most enjoyable dining experience.More

Went to Gahan’s Sept.12/21.......first and foremost Phil you are amazing. You were prompt, polite/gracious and were very attentive to our needs. We loved that you were very exuberant and smiled. Now to the food, EXCELLENT. Hubby had the fish and chips and he kept repeating.”...now thats fish and chips”, meaning thats the real deal. I had the pan fried haddock and I WAS NOT disappointed. No room for desert. This is the first time at Gahans in St. John and it will not be our last. We will see you again.More

I've visited Gahan House several times over the years and have been extremely pleased, however I unfortunately had a negative experience this last time. The server was friendly enough but that was the only positive for me. Salmon was overcooked and over seasoned. Veggies were...raw. I should have immediately sent it back but instead mentioned it to the server at the end of the meal in hopes that the kitchen wouldn't make the same mistakes for other guests. There was no apology or mention of passing along my disappointment to the chef. In the past this has been a great place to visit. For what they charge and what I got, I likely won't be returning.More
