We stopped in for a sandwich and drinks. The food was very good. I would go back if we were in the area. We have been there before and have always enjoyed it.

We ate there before a movie March 3. We were seated right away, service was prompt and efficient. We dine on Pork medallions and Jambalaya. Both were very good, served hot too.

I absolutely LOVE the Gaffer. I would go there more often if I could afford it! :) The penne with vodka sauce is to die for, as well as their sashimi appetizer! Stellar! Great with a nice glass of local wine! Definitely need to plan a visit in the near future!

Stayed in town for a week and if I could have eaten here every night, I would have. Both weeknights we arrived for dinner and were seated immediately. We happened to have the same server both nights and she was great, efficient, pleasant, attentive but not overbearing. I was excited to find that they have the Stella Cidre on tap,... More

If they can keep up on the one day of the yewar that about 90% of the couples in the world go out to dinner they must be good. Food was great, server was friendly and very good. Prices were reasonable.

7pm reservation but didn't get seated until 7:20. We didn't mind that as we were able to have a leisurely drink at the bar while waiting for our table. Service was good and attentive, but the food was not very good. Steak was ordered medium but arrived well done and dry. We probably should have sent it back, but since... More

A nice classy restaurant specializing in Italian food and steaks. 20 Beers on tap and a nice wine list. Albeit a bit pricey, the cozy atmosphere is worth a little more than some other places on Market St. The staff was friendly and attentive.

When I need a bit more of an upscale place for a sit-down lunch, this is the place to go. They have upgraded their lunch menu with more items. They have just appetizers, if you are interested in a light lunch. Sandwiches and salads are heartier fare. Three booths can provide more privacy if you need that. Otherwise the seating... More

I had some guests from out of town stop by, and we decided to eat at the Gaffer Grille. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was a Friday night and the place was busy, but we got a table without waiting, and the service was prompt. The steaks were succulent, and the pasta ( Corning has a strong Italian... More

We were in Corning on a business trip, and found this place to be a great place. So good, on a 4 day visit we ate there twice, and one person ate there 3 nights. Food was very good, and the house sirloin is a great cut, and a good value. Service is friendly, but a little slow. Well worth... More
