Like one of the other reviewers we found this place almost by accident. The first place was packed and we were hungry. Gaffers is on the left just as you come into town but it's tucked back just a little so you don't see it until you are right up on it. The staff was true southern hospitality without hovering....

Came in early August because it was late and one of the only places that takes Amex, but certainly won't be coming back or recommending this to anybody. The food (chicken philly and a cheeseburger) was just so-so. It was pretty much what I would get from a Subway or below average Applebee's, just more expensive. Also got some calamari... More

Our waitress said that their "busy times" fluctuate, and that more people would likely be coming soon because live music started at 10 p.m. Anyyyyyyway, I ordered a fried flounder fish sandwich, and my husband ordered a...

On our recent trip to the Island we decided to visit Gaffer's for dinner on our third night. We always stay a little too long on the beach and are later diners which usually means we get rushed through our meals a bit. It was close to 8:30 pm when we strolled in with our 8 year old daughter and... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch. She had fish tacos that she loved. I had an oyster po boy that was really good. I'd eat here again next time we stay in Ocracoke.

The short while I was in Ocracoke, there were so many things to do, but I found myself in Gaffer's every day. Gaffer's is a sports pub 2.0. It combines friendly staff, delicious food, and awesome tunes at night to create an experience that every islander and tourist alike can enjoy! Drinks are strong enough for the experience palate but... More

My husband and I spent the summer on Ocracoke and by far Gaffers has the best breakfast! Thank you Willie.

We went for their Steak Night last night and it was a12 oz handcut Ribeye with salad bar and side for... More
