Really not what it's cracked up to be. Service was okay. I expected to have amazing food but it was just ok as well

Can't say enough about our experience at the Gafford. Had to wait a little while to get in but it was worth it! The waitstaff was professional and helpful. The food was sublime. I'll definitely recommend this to friends traveling to the area.

We meet with a group of locals for Happy Hour drinks and appetizers. Very friendly atmosphere in the bar area and you can hold a conversation without shouting. The food was great. I will be back.

Our waitress had no idea what the ingredients of any of the menu items were or how they were prepared and even worse the meal was at best, second rate. Poorly prepared and bad service. There are several other much better restaurants nearby.

Wonderful dinner, we took two of our neighbors who have never been there. They are from NY & totally enjoyed their meal. Loved the fresh homemade bread. Great service also

The Gafford has a lot going for it. Newly renovated, slightly upscale place with good ambiance (in somewhat short supply in this neck of the woods!). Menu features some unique and tempting items - the shrimp and grit starter was truly outstanding and I really wanted to try the burrata appetizer as well. Bread basket was quickly devoured as the...

We are staying at the Sunset Bay Marina with friends, both on our boats. This restaurant was recommended by folks at the marina. We walked there, a pleasant walk. Our meals were wonderful. I had the citrus and kale salad with salmon, my husband and our friends had the swordfish, both were well prepared and flavorful. The dressing on the... More

It was our wedding anniversary and my wife picked the restaurant. We had, in the past, stopped off here for a pre show cocktail and enjoyed the bar scene with Mitch behind the bar, a carry over from when it was the old Flagler Inn, caring and carrying on the great service. I had brought our own wine, which they... More

We were at the Gafford the Saturday before St. Patrick's Day, so the streets were very busy and so was the restaurant. There was a St Patrick's Day party going on closing one of the streets, so traffic was congested as well as tough parking. The Gafford was quite laid back and calm compared to what was going on outside.... More

Nice location but menu a little limited. Did not find the scene to be overly energetic. Overall not bad but not great.
