The pizza was pretty good. Not a big fan of gourmet pizza but this was ok. Served hot, but the beer was especially cold. We will look for other pizza choices.

Belt sander races every 2 weeks. $2 mason/bell jar pints of PBR. The Gaffer pizza was recommended by locals (friends) and was not disappointed.

My boyfriend and I have started a tradition of going to the beach in Port A for a few hours and then stopping by The Gaff on our way to the ferry. It's a small bar with some of the funniest and friendliest locals. They serve ice cold beer in mason jars. The bartenders are really nice. We weren't able... More

We visit Port A several times a year and each time we can't wait to get to the Gaff! The Gaff is a hole in the wall bar, nothing fancy, come as your, kind of a place... but it's the best! The music, atmosphere, service and pizza is the best! We've brought our dogs with us, we've watched the belt... More

It is still just a locals type bar but great pizza, great people, cold beer, and good entertainment! Nice way to spend an evening relaxing with friends!

If you park your Car in front of the Gaff and Stingrays make sure you go into The Gaff. The Gaff Pizzas are incredible. It has the Real Island atmosphere and the Pizza is hands down better than the Pizza next door at Sting Rays.

The title says it all! Best pizza anywhere on the island, and there is a lot of pizza on this island! Don't be fooled by others. The second and fourth Saturday of every month are the not to miss Belt Sander Races. Hours vary, but basically 4pm in winter and 6pm in summer. A crowd and local favorite. This place... More
