Great bar area for drinks and appetizers. Have had fantastic meals for dinner and one of the best steaks ever! Great atmosphere....from "business appropriate" to romantic dinner.

I have no idea why this is number 13 on places to go. It has the most amazing food! It is a bit pricey, but worth it. The ribs are to die for! When visiting Corning, I visited the Gaffer 3 times at least. The food is quite tasty ! I highly recommend it. The atmosphere is romantic and genuine.... More

This is a great little restaurant, perfect for a quiet meal for two! Beautiful surroundings offer a different venue than any other restaurant in the area. Also, there are several rooms to stay in upstairs that are just gorgeous!

We were at the Gaffer Grille on New Year's Eve for our first time. Since it was busy and loud, we were happy to have reserved a booth which gave us some privacy and a little quieter atmosphere so that we could talk. The young male waiter was personable, efficient and very likable. Our meal was delicious and did not... More

Been coming to the Gaffer Grille for years. Was here with friends for lunch. The service was slow, despite the restaurant being almost empty. I currently have a bland diet thus asked for a baked potato instead of fries or chips that came with the plain chicken sandwich I ordered. The waitress informed me that baked potatoes are only served... More

We ate here with a group of 12 our first night in Corning visiting family after Thanksgiving. With that large a party I didn't know what to expect from the service. It turns out we need not have been concerned. The food was solid and the service terrific. A party of 20 came in after us and were served without... More

My husband and I stopped into the Gaffer Grille & Taproom November 23, 2015 to get a light dinner. We've been to this restaurant a few times before and have been treated well and the food has been decent, so we expected the same on Nov 23, but we were wrong. First we had to wait a bit until someone... More

We stopped for lunch while visiting the area, based on Trip Advisor reviews. If this is what passes for "excellent dining" in Corning, the area must be severely lacking in good places to eat, We had the sirloin burger and reuben sandwich, splitting our meals. Both were equally disappointing. The burger was dry and lacked flavor, the bun had no... More
