“Funky Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a REAL island bar. We've listened to some really great entertainment there over the years. This weekend again did not disappoint. Great place for a couple "cold ones" if you really want the feel of the island.

“Wonderful beer garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Went to Gaff's after the Crazy Cajun wouldn't seat us until the whole party arrived. I loved their outdoor beer garden area which was filled with a mix of locals and tourists. Great place to hang out after a day at the beach.

“Want a beer, go here”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

Go here. Have a beer and be happy. Good little spot to enjoy a cold one with locals and out of towners. No trouble to be found unless you are asking for it. Eat, drink, enjoy, be happy!

“Excellent Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

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!!!

“Worst pizza I have ever eaten in my life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

We are staying in port a with our family and had a craving for a good pizza . We read reviews for gaffs and went for it. 2 large and 1 medium topping pizza was 40 bucks. The pizza was awful , my whole family of 8, could not eat it. The dough was soft and uncooked, it remindes me of a pizza you would get at the bowling alley. Save your money go get a frozen pizza , it will taste better. STAY AWAY
