6 Places for Food After Partying on George Street

George Street at Night

George Street is the home of nightlife in St. John’s. It’s very common for local bar-goers to stay out until alcohol can no longer be legally sold. After a few hours of slinging back beer that you can’t get anywhere else, you’re going to be hungry! You might have been smart and planned ahead by leaving a delicious snack at home. If not, don’t fear, there are some places in walking distance to get some post-George Street food.

The Celtic Hearth‘s neon sign boasting that they’re open 24 hours a day will catch your eye at night. You’ll get a late-night menu that is simplified yet still has plenty of pub food options to end the night.

In business since 1986, Ziggy Peelgood’s Famous French Fries has several mobile locations and has recently opened a permanent one. Known by the locals as just Ziggy’s, they’ve got a truck right next to George Street where the taxis hang out. Open until 3:00AM on Friday and Saturday, it’s also ideal if you need a quick bite while bar hopping.

Downtown St. John’s is quite lacking in fast food chains compared to other downtown areas in Canada. Mary Brown’s, a chicken chain originally founded in St. John’s, made a big move in 2019 when they opened a location on Water Street. This one is open much later than other locations in the city!

A few hot dog carts can be found on George Street, and the general consensus if you ask someone from St. John’s is to not eat from them, although there’s no trouble to see people doing so. Most of the negative sentiment stems from the fear of cleanliness not being up to par. After all, it is a BBQ on wheels parked on George Street at 3 in the morning. To be fair, though, the hot dog carts have perfectly compliant food premises inspection reports at the time of writing.

These George Street food places are sure to satisfy your appetite after celebrating your screech in!
