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

When you make it over to Ocracoke while on vacation to the Outer Banks you have to stop in at Gaffer's! It is such a cool place and they serve an awesome fish sandwich. Big Red and his staff were great. It was our first time there and it will not be our last!

We had extended our stay in Hatteras beyond Thanksgiving. All of the restaurants on that island were closed, so we took the free ferry to Ocracoke. Thank goodness Gaffers was open. Not only that, they had fresh seafood, homemade soup and local beer. There was a true community atmosphere and we enjoyed a chat with the breakfast chef during lunch.... More

Just made our first trip to Ocracoke Island this past weekend. With most of the establishments closed for the season we were searching for a place to eat and hang out for a while. We found Gaffer's Sports Pub, it is open year round. We went in for some food and drinks. This is a family owned place that has... More

I asked the waiter about this and he said there was an upcharge on getting one plate blackened and on both plates for substituting fries in... More

What did I expect? It was Poker Night at a Sports bar. My wife and I wanted to try all of the restaurants on the island so we started at one end and worked our way down. Gaffer's seems to be a great place for what it is - a sports bar, but not such a great place for a... More

If you plan a trip to Ocracoke make a point of going to Gaffer's. We had 2 excellent dinners and 2 breakfasts that were exceptional and a great value. The wait staff from Riley to owner "Big Red" went out of their way to make us feel welcome and the food and drinks were great. They had live entertainment on... More
