Love love love Gaffers! Awesome wings, apps and great drinks. Staff is always super friendly. Very low key. Our favorite place in OINC for sure.

plenty of TV's but not real big screens. not many tables with chairs facing the tv,s. Was happy to see my team play but also glad the crown was small. $0.50 hot wings were great, wish I had some right now. Would visit again when in Ocracoke

I had breakfast there and enjoyed meeting "Red" the owner. I enjoyed chatting with him and enjoyed the breakfast as well. Could use a touch more of the delicious home fries though. I brought the family back for desserts and free wifi while watching Monday night football. Even though we camped out for a long time the waitress was super... More

Wasn't very crowded at 730 so I got right in. My waitress gave me good info about my dinner selection as I had never had Bluefish. It was tasty as was the oysters and shrimp I generally don't do fried but this was good.

One night we were a little late for supper out but Gaffers was open and people were there watching the game, including a table of 6. Someone was setting up the stage for some kind of entertainment, so we weren't there just before closing. The waitress (I only saw one) seemed tired at first but soon seemed to be trying... More

My husband ate breakfast at Gaffer's on the day after Labor Day. It was the best breakfast I can remember in a long time. My husband had the omelet that you get to choose your own ingredients and he loved it. I had the big breakfast platter. The homemade biscuits and home made hash browns were fabulous! I can't believe... More

We come to Ocracoke every year and have been coming to Gaffer's since they opened. We have been here 4 days and have been twice already. We went on Tuesday for apps and a Bloody Mary. Just love their spicy one. It is great morning, noon or night. We had the crab dip with crunchy outside, soft inside fried pita... More
