The Food Is Really Good and It's a Fun Atmosphere.

I absolutely love the fried clams. I'm a huge fan and this is one of only a couple places that doesn't overcook them. Or over-fry them. They are lightly fried and I SO appreciate that. I don't eat meat, but the guys I was with said the wings aren't hot at all. At least not for people from out... read more

Ate there last night during the NCAA basketball game and our great waitress kept running to the bar to get the scores for us. Our food was perfect; the camaraderie of other diners was great. We really enjoyed our food and the place is not at all pretentious like some other Springs restaurants. Can't wait to go back. Thanks Gaffney's.

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 - which is always... 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
