Good food pricy

we actually ate breakfast here. Place looks like a blast at night, but we were visiting by day, and breakfast is limited on the island. Very nice staff but not well equipped to serve breakfast. It was delicious though.

Amazing Ruben and the O rings are to die for. The band rocked and all of this for a very affordable price! Please don't hesitate to ask Holly, Megan, or Kristen to point you in the the right direction in regards to food or spirits, (and their not bad to look at either). Well worth the drive and ferry ride.... More

We headed to Gaffer's for breakfast on a rainy Saturday morning in March. We all enjoyed the friendly service and plentiful, tasty meals. Three of the four of us ordered the loaded home fries. They easily accomodated our requests for different types of cheese and eggs on each. My husband ordered the biscuit with country ham. All of our breakfasts... More

Just finished another great late lunch. The bacon Cheeseburger w/fries was cooked perfectly and the .50 wings were delicious.

My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary weekend at Ocracoke the weekend of February 20th. Unfortunately, the island was experiencing record low (i.e. single digit) temperatures and our pipes were frozen at our cottage. FORTUNATELY, this caused us to eat at Gaffer's EVERY meal the first half of the weekend! Everything we had, including breakfast, was DELICIOUS! Not to... More

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.
