Nice enough place, beautiful building with micro brewery on site, food was really good but found the beer a bit off (everyone else seemed to like it though)!

We had heard good things about Gahan House, so headed over for a late lunch. We started with the Oysters and Beer special, which was good value for 10 oysters and 2 small beers for $37. The oysters were fresh and tasty. I had the...fish and chips, which were disappointing compared to other fish and chips meals in the area. The batter was nearly black in places, so the fish was overcooked, and the batter didn't stick to the fish. The fries could have been good had the not been doused in seasonings. It's bad when you have to knock the salt and seasonings off the order of fries, especially in a province that's famous for potatoes! Maybe give the option of seasoned or not. I'd have preferred plain fries. The seafood cakes were barely okay. Gooey and undercooked, with more potato than fish or seafood. Our server also spoke with a strange nasal sing-songy affectation and was very hard to understand. Maybe suggest that your staff speak clearly, especially in a tourist location. He also kept calling us "guys" even though I am clearly NOT a guy. It's now appropriate in customer service to not gender guests. More appropriate to drop gender altogether, as in, "Hi, what would you like to drink" and "I hope you all had a great meal." Drop the guys, and gals, and ladies and gents. Thanks.More

We've been here a few times but clearly I haven't been ordering the right stuff. Their ringbearer burger and fries are crazy good- might be the best fries I've ever had. In general there's pretty decent variety for a pub. Service was adequate, seen better...but also not the worst.More

Great spot if you're into local beer, they have several on tap and also available for purchase. The brown bag fish & chips comes in an actual brown bag, which was cute. It was also delicious.

We were 3 couples of a bigger group. We had fried chicken sandwiches, burgers and rice bowls. All were WAY too spicy (you don’t expect that with a hamburger)! And the fries were way over salted and/or peppered. May have been both. The Caesar salad...starters were sad looking. Our lunch took an hour and a half, too long when you’re site seeing. I can’t say there was much to recommend this place.More

This place hypes its atmosphere, we were put in a back room without any. Ordered our meal, appetizers and main. It all came at once, when we addressed it the waitress said we didn’t tell her, it was up to us to ‘verbalize’ what we...wanted. I felt like a child being reprimanded. Usually the server asks if you want it all at once. The table was too small to fit all of the dishes , but she made no attempt to help us. We finally juggled plates around. The food was good, but she really put a damper on our evening. Won’t go back!More

The veneu consists of numberous small rooms and on the night of our visit was busy and popular. We got a seat on the back patio which was great and less noisy. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food, although basic pub fare,...was suited to our needs on the night. All beers are their own brews.More

Had a nice family dinner, the food looked great, but was inedible due to the amount of salt on the fries and chicken fingers. I love salt on my fries but after getting a second order of fries realized the chicken fingers were also so...salty they were inedible. I felt bad, the staff were lovely but unfortunately I left without having eaten more than a dozen fries once the first batch were replaced with unsalted fries. A lovely place, very unfortunate experience.More

I had heard great things about the food on PEI and researched our choices, I was really looking forward to a great meal. We arrived at 1:30 to a fairly empty restaurant, yet we waited a while to be sat. Friendly server/hostess. We ordered, well in the...middle of attempting to order, the server walked away, left us mid sentence as he walked over to help another table. Then came back like nothing happened, didn't apologize or even acknowledge what he did.  I asked a few questions about drinks, what was popular or a crowd favorite and he just turned the question on me, "depends on what you like".  What I like is a server who knows the menu and can guide me. We ordered the burger, it took over 45 minutes. And when it arrived, it was obvious it had been sitting under the heat lamp for a good 20 minutes because the bun was hard and stale. Very disappointing experience. Very disappointing service. I had hoped for better.  I'm guessing had the burger been served as the chef desired it would have been quite good. More

The restaurant itself was okay and the service was good but the food was horrible. Had the roasted potato/pineapple coleslaw dish and it was so saturated with oils that it was hard to eat. The french fries were also overseasoned and modified. For PEI potato...country they should have served basic french fries, not seasoned or modified! Would not recommend going to this restaurant at all. Very sad to say this but I would not go back.More

The atmosphere was nice, and our server was great as well. The unfortunate part of our visit was our order of the chicken sandwich on the menu. The piece of chicken was extremely thin, and only covered a small portion of the bun. Very disappointing...from a place we’ve enjoyed many times before. Hope to warn someone else before expecting a decent chicken sandwich.More

I have tried this restaurant twice now and I still have the same impression. It is just fair. The restaurant itself is a lovely place and has a great atmosphere. The staff are very helpful and friendly but the food I find is just fair....Now I must say that I did enjoy the beef melt but the fries were common and the pretzel bites were not very good. The chicken in a brown bag was fried too long. It was almost burnt.More
