When you walk in you will not be impressed as it just looks like a locals bar (which it is). Although at first glance it is not much, after you start reading the ceiling tiles and enjoying the flavor of the place you will be a life-long fan. Besides the bar area which is rather small, they also have tables out back where they hold the belt sander races. We were newbies and did not know the ropes so we just sat at a table. A very nice guy who is obviously a regular came over and explained how things work. After that we went to the bar and ordered our pizza and drinks. The pizza chef has only two small ovens to work with so you may need to be patient, but there is plenty to do to pass the time. As to the pizza, there were 3 couples in our group, and we all ordered something different. All of us agreed that it was the best pizza we had ever tasted!! We will be making The Gaff a regular stop on future trips to Port Aransas. Great service, great prices, friendly staff, and awesome food!!!
