Food was incredible and our server, Emily, was one of the best we've had. The place was packed and she was still able to fully describe every beer and entree we inquired about. Top notch service and an awesome atmosphere!

Gaffer's is the perfect stop for a good meal in a "come on in, take a load off " atmosphere. It has all the food options one would expect from a sports bar plus stellar seafood choices. Sure, they have plenty of TVs, pool tables, and arcade games, but the best part of this joint is the people you'll find... More

January, late in the evening and a hungry tired kid. Where... Here! Even if they were short of some ingredients, we're so kind to offer the best. Nice atmosphere. Try the shrimp tacos, are super delicious. Pool tables, fun and nice music too.

This restaurant serves great breakfast! Cubed home fries done just right, good country (or regular) ham, delicious thick sliced toast! Good dinners, too, with wide variety of seafood dishes and red meats, and good selection of vegetables. Definitely worth a stop when visiting Ocracoke.

I've always been so fascinated by small towns. Ocracoke is the most wonderful, perfect small town. This was my first visit there, and while it was during the off season, it was so much fun. I have to give most of the credit to Gaffer's and its staff. The owners, Ashley and Red, have a way of making you feel... More

This unassuming (from the outside) restaurant has a warm, friendly vibe inside and was just the thing for our lunch on a windy, raw December day. Big juicy burgers, truly awesome onion rings, and attentive service. A little light on vegetarian options, but the vegetarian melt is good and there are a couple of good appetizers in that category as... More

Stopped in here the week before Thanksgiving, when only a few restaurants were open...would agree with previous reviewer, "don't be misled by exterior". We were warmly greeted by staff as we came in. Spent some time deciding on which beer to have on tap, and made our choices based on staff recommendations- worked out well for us! Food was delicious... More

My wife and I like to visit Ocracoke in the off-season when options are extremely limited. So, when we coming in late December, Gaffer's is one of the only places available to us. But, we couldn't be more fortunate. We've been there probably 8-10 times for either meals or drinks, and had fast and friendly service each and every time.... More

We recently spent an afternoon on Ocracoke and decided to stay for a late lunch. Not many choices this time of year. We found Gaffers open and decided to give it a try. We couldn't have been more pleased. The interior was old and quaint. It looked festive decorated for the holidays. They have an eclectic menu, with a little... More
