Went to George St this afternoon, very disappointing. This is a place for young people at night that want to get hammered and party. To that extent, I bet it's a great place. Other than that the food in the pubs etc is horrible and not much better than what you would expect at a fair! And, please, do not... More

I was expecting a party atmosphere but almost nobody there. Weather was bad so I guess I can forgive. We got "Screeched In" at Trapper John's. Good experience. Bartender made the ceremony fun. I would definitely go back again. Reminded me of some bars of my youth.

George street is a classic Newfoundland favourite! It's a place for all locals and even tourists to enjoy. It is a landmark to our province!

Lots of people take cabs here since you really don't want to drive here. Good local pubs, food, and entertainment. ATMs at every pub. Fun signage.

You have to come hear at least once in your life! I know lots of places have lots of bars and food but what makes this place great is the talent of the musicians in the pubs. The people of Newfoundland amaze me how they continue to turn out so much talent and how the traditional music changes with the... More

We did the pub crawl on a Saturday night at the end of a very busy week of travel and site seeing. It was a quiet night, the food was just OK and the beer was great. We loved the music, and the people.

Just walk into any pub with live music and you won't be disappointed. Usually after 10pm, you will have to pay a $5 cover. Beers are expensive.

We had heard so much about George St we were really looking forward to a good pub crawl with lots of entertainment. Very disappointed when we went on a Monday evening and the street was a ghost town with only one facility having live music.

A street full of bars that we visited during a Sunday afternoon (not a night scene person). I can only imagine how much fun would be had by most at night here. Friendly people with a lot of live bands.
