I really didnít know what to expect before arriving at Prince Edward Island but this turned out to be a pretty hip little bar and restaurant. We went on a Monday night and still had to wait 40 minutes for a table. Once we got seated we werenít disappointed as we enjoyed the food and drink.

Stopped in here for a late lunch after arriving on the island on the first nice day of my motorcycle trip. Large brick building that everyone wants to call Victorian. Lots of wood inside and some eclectic colors that make me wonder if this was once a Mexican restaurant. I was here quite early so the place was kind of empty. My server was quite attentive. I had the sampler and the spicy bean dip. The food was good and the beers ranged from Ok to pretty damn good. Lunch for just me was a bit pricey, but if I was in the area again I would stop in.

This is an old and characterful building smack in the center of town. Plenty of street and off street parking the several times we stopped by. Staff had good recommendations, and in any case the taster flight covered all nine beers on offer, so you can also try them all for yourself. The majority of the beers here are brewed on the seven barrel kit in the basement, which general manager Chris was kind enough to show us; the Beach Chair lager and I think one other are brewed at PEI, a short drive north of town center. The friendliness and generosity of the folks here was the highlight of the trip for me. This makes for a good base from which to visit the rest of the town, both beery and non-beery ones. Iíll be back for sure!

Very cool setting in a big old Victorian era house. It was a Tuesday night but completely full, so get there early to get a table. Server was very friendly and helpful. They had like seven or eight of their beers available and they were pretty much all okay. Prices are a little expensive, but thatís to be expected on PEI. Overall a very cool place where the beer isnít great but it more than makes up for it in other areas.

As the only serious place to come up on RateBeer for PEI...I obviously had to check it out when on the island. It was our only night in Charlottetown and we had dinner reservations elsewhere...but I convinced my family to walk around town on a beautiful summer evening while I sampled the Gahan House. Although only a Wednesday night...the place was packed and it took me a few minutes to get a bar seat. Once I did I tried the flights and sampled "all" of their beers. I found many of them to be of an English style (common up this way) and ranging in quality from not bad to pretty good...or another way of saying it...none were terrible and none were great. The staff and customers were very friendly and the ambiance great. From looking at the food delivered to others and asking for a few comments...it was clear the food was certainly comparable to the enjoyable atmosphere...beer...and vibe. I would come back here again if in the area...but I would not say this is necessarily a destination place for the craftbeer fan.

Really enjoyed my brief visit to PEI and had a fun afternoon at The Gahan House chatting with the staff and locals at the bar. Solid beers on tap; especially their stout. Good pub fare and ambiance. Easy to see why they are expanding.

The Gahan House is a great old brick house on Sydney Street in the heart of Charlottetown. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, low-lit, and old bricks and wood with some modern accents. Well-staffed with attractive young ladies. I normally default to a 10 for selection at brewpubs, but this place was out of their IPA, just retired the Cream Ale, and ran out of the only seasonal between our first and second visits here. Even if it is busy season, be prepared. If youíre out of one thing thatís understandable but being out of multiple things (and not discounting samplers) doesnít sit well with me, especially when one of the sampler pours was just a mix of the Honey Wheat and Brown ales. The mussels were awesome, maybe the best we had on the island. Burger was decent and fish and chips were very good. Love the fries here, and pretty much everywhere on PEI. We didnít manage to make it in for one of the $8 tours (5 and 7 daily) but with a tiny brewing operation in the basement Iím not sure if it would have been worth it anyway. At least it wasnít $16 like the Keithís tour. Iíd like to visit here again during a less busy time of year and try a few more of their beers; most were average except for the very good Sydney Street Stout.

Lovely old building in downtown Charlottetown. A little dark inside but maybe I should have sat by a window. very cosy feel. Great pub for the winter months. I had the sampler tray with seven of the Gahan House ales. Pretty standard with the stout and IPA standing out. The food was tasty and at a great value, The service was excellent. Nice place.

Popped in on a Thursday and it was PACKED! Time for a sampler paddle only, unfortunately no time for food. Despite the crowd I had no trouble placing my order and service was super fast. Beautiful interior. Iíd love to come back for a meal and a longer sit.

This place was packed when I stopped in for a drink. I stood at the bar while reviewing there beers. It was a pretty cool place. The coolest of all was what they call "little buddy" I think it was two or three pitchers poured from the tap into a large clear cylinder with a tap on the bottom. They then set it on a little stand and placed it on your table. That was my highlight of the night.
