Terrific Tapas

On a Thursday night you can get all kinds of delicious, low-cost tapas, from stews to pizza. I opted for the pizza - a ham, sausage and mushroom topped pie... and ate the whole thing. With four separate rooms and a patio, you can choose just how close you want to be to the live entertainment... read more

My daughter and I had lunch here. We sat on the patio, which was nice. The waitress told us we had to wait to be seated even though there were tables available and she was the only waitress working. She made us stand there while she took an order and THEN told us to sit where we liked. The food... More

There is a sour beer smell in the main inside bar that reminds me of late night college. That room is also drab and a bit down trodden. The side room is basically a pretty solarium and newly decorated. The garden can be nice or it can get too crowded. But they tend to have good music venues. Wings are... More

I typically eat at Gaffney's about once a week. Great service and atmosphere, and very reasonable pricing for the quality of food you're getting. I am not one to stray from my normal of the southwestern chicken panini, but today an item on the brunch specials menu caught my eye and I had to order it. I am sure happy... More

I have been to Gaffneys many times since 1980 (I go to the races a few days every year) and it is always consistent. Was there the last Wednesday night of racing season and food and service was very good. We sat outside and my only "complaint" is the band was a little loud. It was hard to hold a... More

Had a great meal at Gaffney's on our vacation. They have outdoor seating with music on certain nights during racing season. Excellent menu choice, from light inexpensive meals to more costly full course choices. The food and service is excellent.
