The Gaffer has become my new favorite Twin Tiers restaurant. Their steaks are some of the best I have ever had. Try the chicken wig dip, homemade perfection. The draft beer selection is large and impressive. Can be pricey but well worth it.

Watched a world cup soccer game at the bar. Fun company, great service, good selection of beers. Also had dinner. Food was very good (pork medallions; chicken). Would go back.

Spent a couple of days in Corning - lots of choices for eats. Based on Trip Advisor ratings and the on-line menu we decided to have dinner at the Gaffer Grille and Taproom - great choice! The Chicken Taco Dip appetizer was to die for - we joked with the waitress that we wanted boxes for our dinners and we'd... More

At dinner twice at Gaffer. Good bar scene; nice selection. Staff was helpful and friendly. Food was OK but not memorable. Prices mid-range. Overall satisfactory and better than much of the competition.

I ordered the Jambalaya with orzo, it came with a generous helping of chicken, sausage, shrimp, and peppers. It was pretty good I also ordered the chicken covered with mushrooms which was very bland. I must say my last few times there haven't been great. The food doesn't seem to be as good as it used to be. I have... More

My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch after visiting the Corning Glass Museum. We sat in a cozy booth and enjoyed a couple of sandwiches. My husband has the special panini with prime rib, cheddar cheese and bacon. I had a burger, also on a ciabatta-style roll. Both were served with homemade chips and pickles. Our server... More

Stranded downtown for a few hours, I had only appearance and posted menu to go by. I lucked out at The Gaffer. Nice grill fare with some twists like edamame and hummus, hearty but not ridiculous portions, and a friendly and accommodating wait-and-kitchen staff. I had the mushroom Swiss burger, spinach salad and sweet potato fries and all were fresh... More

We ate here on Friday night and had a great meal. We made a reservation that was honored and I recommend making one as well, especially on a weekend. The hamburger was great. It didn't taste like a regular hamburger, it was more like mama's meat loaf or meatballs. The 10 oz. burger was certainly large enough to share. The... More

This past Saturday, May 24, 2014 my wife and I, camping in nearby PA, went to Corning to check out their Glassfest. After enjoying some wine and outdoor music at the Ramada barbeque, we decided we wanted something to eat between fancy and pub grub. Using our smart phones and an online restaurant review site, Gaffer's seemed to be just... More
