Our party of six stopped in for lunch today after touring the Island. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The menu offered a good variety of sandwiches, burgers, appetizers, etc. Food came out from the kitchen fast, was very tasty and at the proper temperature. Kids meals-we had three of these-included very good shoestring French fries. The "adult" sandwiches... More

Visited here for breakfast. The highlight was a BLTE sandwich. It was bacon, lettuce, tomato, fried egg , mayo on marble rye bread. It was fantastic. I love the marble rye as the twist. My husband had the standard two egg breakfast with Virginia ham. He lived it all. Neighbor table had the pancakes. Huge serving that challenged a teen... More

If you are near by PLEEEAAAASSSEEE stop here! Food and service is phenomenal! We arrived with a group of 11 and was seated immediately. Me and my wife had the "NC Shrimp BLT", amazing!!! Everyone else was very very pleased with their food. The servers had real down south hospitality. Will be back for sure!

We came in with 5 other tables and were worried it would take forever but definitely not disappointed. The food was quick and tasted amazing. Best I've eaten this whole trip. The servers were the owners and they serviced the whole place. Best team I've seen and very friendly. The prices were outstanding. I would highly recommend this place! Wish... More

We ate here first in 2013. It was great back then so we decided to make a trip down to Ocracoke again for the wings. We had the crab dip- great with the pita chips. We had wings: bbq, spicy sweet chili, teryaki, and dry rub jerk. They were all perfect and not overly sauced. Very crispy. We'll be making... More

Last year we had a not so great experience. We decided to give it another try and for the money was the best overall place. The prices are fair and for this island that is saying a lot. The food was great and the service was fantastic. The apps were really good and the entrees were filling.

I had been hired to provide my dj services for a wedding reception at Gaffers. Having never been there I was uncertain of many things. The owner and staff were very accommodating, friendly and ready to work with. The space is well deigned for live music or a wedding reception with dance floor. But what impressed me the most was...
