Our family had a blast, singing karaoke outside. We were looking for a place that our kids go enjoy as well as us adults.

The Gaff is the place to go for good reasonably priced beer and pizza in Port A. The "Gaff" is their loaded pizza available in 12- and 14-inch sizes. They also have a good selection of draft, canned and bottled beers. Usually there are a couple of draft 16-ounce beers on special for only $2.50. It's a nice, friendly local... More

There's not much to write home about the gaff - it is the definition of a hole-in-the-wall joint but our family had so much fun! We visited on the night of their monthly belt sander races and it was beyond anything we could have imagined - so much fun! The pizza was delicious and the atmosphere was all about having... More

Favorite Hangout of the Port A Locals - Gaff has fantastic atmosphere & pizza! Belt Sander races are a must see as well as music and other festivities. One of the most dog friendly bars around and golden retriever approved haha. Would defiantly visit again if ever back in Port A!

It's an old local beer joint. I'm talking way old. But, the beer is so cold it sticks to your hands. Speaking of hands, their pizza is, hands down, the best you can ever hope to eat. It takes awhile but the wait is worth it. You watch them make it and then cook in one of two little pizza... More

Don't let the appearance of this place fool you. This little local bar has the best pizza I have ever had bar none. While you may have to wait a while, (they can only make 4 pizzas at a time, sit back order a beer and relax. It is worth the wait ...Seriously the pizza is that good. And the... More

This is defiantly the Local place. We walked in and felt like strangers in a new 1 horse town. Turned around and left. Not saying this is a bad place, but only about 3 people in there when I went so I have no opinion other than the Belt Sander drag strip in the back.
