This is the first place we stopped off the ferry, and they make some great fish tacos and cheeseburgers. Kathy gave us excellent service, and we can't wait to try out the happy hour soon.

Although a sports bar, Gaffers is a great place for breakfast. The country ham was great and the home fries were real home style - some of the best I've had. Head on over. Kathy will take good care of you.

Took a while to get the drinks, but... More

We had great shrimp at Gaffer's. The shrimp was fresh and had been cooked perfectly. After being tossed in Buffalo sauce, they were pretty "hot" but great if that's what you like.

We wanted to have lunch and visit our relatives at the same time. Jason, our cousin, was such a warm host. His wife Ashley was also.. They were packed due to the World Cup but Jason got us a table ASAP. The food was fabulous and so was the visit. We hope to return when possible.

Cathy, our waitress was chatty and friendly, brought our food quickly and hot. Kept our drinks filled. Second time to have breakfast and found it to be as good as the Pony Island Restaurant, a local restaurant known for their breakfast fare. The biscuits, though flatter than we remembered, were crisp and tasty. Would have preferred the bacon and cheese... More

At first sight I was a little skeptical, however my opinion was changed by the food, service, and environment. Great food and service. Will definitely return.

Despite Hurricane Arthur and a couple days without electricity,Gaffer's kept their commitment to cater our wedding. The food was fantastic. We had 31 guests for lunch, and everyone had compliments on the food. The delivery and set up was quick and easy. Oh and did I mention affordable? Their kindness and concern for our event exceeded our expectations. Their friendly... More

Absolutely delicious. The owners and staff are very kind and fun. Best place on the island to go and watch a game or socialize with others. Can spend hours there enjoying your time. The wings are delicious and cheap! Never feel rushed or neglected. Excellent service and food. All around a great place to go!
