Excellent Sashimi

Wait staff was on top of things and very good. The menu has a fair amount of choices - steaks seem a bit expensive, though. I had the sashimi and calamari - the sashimi was much better than I expected, calamari was better than average. One of our group had a Caesar salad that was beyond dismal... read more

While traveling on business through the area on the way to Williamsport, PA my associate and I took a detour into Corning, NY looking for a place to have lunch and stumbled upon Gaffer. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the service was perfect. The loaded potato soup was excellent but I found the Ruben a bit tough and... More

The three times we have stayed at the Inn at Gaffer Grille, we have also dined at the Gaffer Grille and Taproom. My husband definitely likes it better than I do, and I suppose this is because I am usually trying to follow a diet such as Weight Watchers. Thus, I try to stay away from red meat and pasta,...

On a recent visit to Corning we went with family members to the Gaffer for dinner & we certainly were not disappointed. Food was varied and very tasty & beers/wine good too! Our waitress was really attentive and friendly and I think she played an important role in our very positive experience. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to people... More

We stopped in for lunch on our way to the Corning Glass Museum. We were seated at once and our orders taken promptly. Our food arrived shortly after and was good. Our server was very busy, but was quite attentive.

I have been here many times for a business lunch. Food is always good but nothing real special. Room are quiet and suitable for business conversations. Prices are reasonable. Parking can be hard.

We met up with two other couples in Corning & decided to return once more to the Gaffer Grille for lunch. We were not disappointed. Our server was helpful & attentive. Two of the ladies had the daily special which was tomato soup and grilled sandwich. Two of the men choose the sirloin burgers with fries & two of us... More

We met friends for lunch - sat in the back room where it was quite quiet so we could carry on a conversation and catch up. Great many beers on tap - good lunch offerings, tasty. Great location right on bustling Market Street in downtown Corning where the entire street is walkable.

Always enjoy going to the Gaffer. Great beer selection. Food is good and the price is right for a mid-range American food restaurant.

We have been to the Gaffer many times in the past 5 years, majority of the times the food has been amazing. Recently in July 2014 I went with friends for my birthday, and the food was ok. I figured with it being a Friday night things were just thrown together. I didn't order anything extreme just chicken parmesan. Passing... More
