I think it's probably the best sports bar on the island, and I've enjoyed watching a few games there. It's clean, the food is decent and the staff is generally good. If I was going out to watch a game, Gaffer's would be my first choice. For lunch it would still be a choice. For dinner, it would not rank... More

Great service in this sports bar. Stopped for lunch. Food ordered varied from salads to wings to burgers. Everyone loved their main course. The fries came out warm at best. Beer on tap was a wide variety - microbreweries to big brands. Pepsi products served here. Great tasting food.

The local fish sandwich was fresh and delicious! The atmoshphere was fun, but the live music can get a little loud.

I had a burger with onion rings and gotta tell u-never had better-had riders of 50 cent wings for Sunday NFL day-were great-wife had house salad and it was beyond good-mixed greens... More

We would have eaten more often here if we'd found it earlier in our visit. Served a delicious breakfast and we had a great server!

We had an amazing breakfast here this morning. Eggs, perfect potatoes, and super grilled biscuit. My husband raved about his breakfast burrito. We'll be back for sure, before we leave.
