We realize it takes a while to prepare but... More

Gaffers has so many different areas that most guest should find something to satisfy them. The lounge, outside lounge, and upstairs lounge can be quite busy. The areas have been newly renovated with better lighting and more spacious. Drinks are always good here. Dining room is a little more quiet and for couples looking for some privacy. The outdoor dining... More

We were seated in the area for a large group, about twenty-five to thirty people. We were given a menu of three items to choose from, all at five to ten dollars more than their a la carte menu. There was prime rib, stuffed chicken breast, and chicken fettuccini. Of course this included the desert (which was good). Anyway, we... More

We drove to Gaffers on motorcycles from Winnipeg on a warm evening. The patio upstairs was full so we went to the back and sat in their beautiful courtyard. Great wings.. and pitcher of long islands. (The passengers were drinking). Our waitress Lynne was a riot and made our visit there even better! She was hilarious!

Started off with fish taco appetizers- Great flavor, had avocado and fresh lime in each one. Highly recommend!! Also ordered the Ham and split pea soup to start, filled with goodness and left me wanting more! Entree was ribs with rice - done just right, fall off the bone. Added feta to my rice from the Greek salad that my... More

I had never been here but we decided to stop in for dinner & drinks after hiking in the Whiteshell for the day. Great food & an amazing patio that are well worth the 15-20 minute drive from Winnipeg! Love the Mushrooms Neptune!
