Welcome to the original Gahan House, located in the heart of historic Charlottetown. We’ve been brewing craft beer, serving great food, and showcasing the warmth and hospitality PEI is famous for since 2001. When you think about Gahan, you might think Sir John A’s Honey Wheat Ale and Brown Bag Fish & Chips or a great venue for local music and the perfect place to have a meet up with friends. No matter what Gahan means to you, the common thread is it’s always an experience. There are now Gahan locations across the Maritimes and we’re proud to be the ones that started it all. Experience the beer. Experience the food. Experience the culture. Come experience Gahan.

We were a group of 6 on past Sunday evening and the service Maggie provide was excellent. She had a friendly welcome smile when greeting the group and provided outstanding service. She asked if food was ok and the meals were excellent. Hats off to...kitchen staff as well. They also asked if we had a proper documentation when entering to assure we met the proper guidelines. Good job!!More

Glad we picked out this Restaurant. It was within walking Distance of the Delta Hotel. Food and Service and staff knowledge of Menu made the evening.. I would suggest reservations if you are in the area for dinner. It was very busy and locals as...well as out of towners were in attendance. If we get downtown again I would highly recommend this Restaurant .More

When we arrived the staff were very friendly and attentive. Our server was spectacular. The selection of beers was great as were the fish tacos. My wife and I split a plate of PEI mussels as an appetizer. They were great. The lobster roll was...also a hit for my wife.More

I had high expectations for this brewpub but they were well exceeded. The food was 10/10 perfect - you could not ask for something more delicious. The beer was equally fantastic. Definitely going back every chance we get.

Four of us had dinner here. Everyone was satisfied with their meal except me. I had the tuna tartare. Half of it was cucumber! Our server was excellent. We got a table without a reservation.

So make a reservation or get there early and put your name on the list. This place gets busy for dinner and we waited about 25 mins for a table to open up. It was great to see so much energy and lots of locals...having dinner here too. Sour beers - awesome! Food was really good. Yes, lobster dip for sure. Our server, Meg was super cool. Definitely will be back!!More

First walked in and not the friendliest service. Staff seemed busy and stressed. Our server made up for it once we engaged in conversation. Pretty decent menu but was disappointed in the lobster rolls, they were very dry. I would give this place another chance...and try a different item.More

We ate and drank on the patio downtown Charlottetown. Food was excellent - fish is fresh and tasty. More importantly, the beer is great and the bar on the other side of the street was playing live music - which added to the experience.
