“Nothing to hide”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Were young full time travelers from Chicago. Been a while since we had a good pizza. Finally found it. Fair beer prices. Locals and regulars. Beef and meatballs sandwiches were nothing to scream about but decent. But the pizza is great price and filling...extra cheese is the norm here. Jukebox selection is good and well priced. Byob. Only beer here. All around cool place to hang.

“We love this bar!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This place is so full of character! Its pirate themed and the decor is awesome! The drinks good priced and I hear that the pizza is amazing. However the reason we frequent this bar each time we go to PORT A is because of Sand Belt Racing! Yep Sand Belt Racing. It so ridiculously funny! Go to the Gaff and check out the races some weekend! Its worth it!

“Pizza, Pizza Pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

If you want way cold beer and great pizza, go to the Gaff. It an old timey beer joint which appears to be run by hippies but don't led that fool you. They've done a great job. Best pizza for miles.

“Bar with good people watching + live music out back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The pizza is good. The sand belt races are hilarious. I'm not a bar person so this is a good place for me because you can walk right thru to the back and sit outside on and listen to a band in their backyard. They have to stop playing about 10:00 since it's outside. Good place for people watching since it's a local hang out. Definately a must do if you are going out in Port A.

“Bar with Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

This is a quirky beach bar that just happens to serve great pizza. I went early in the evening for pick up but I bet it is a great late night bar!
