A nice classy restaurant specializing in Italian food and steaks. 20 Beers on tap and a nice wine list. Albeit a bit pricey, the cozy atmosphere is worth a little more than some other places on Market St. The staff was friendly and attentive.

When I need a bit more of an upscale place for a sit-down lunch, this is the place to go. They have upgraded their lunch menu with more items. They have just appetizers, if you are interested in a light lunch. Sandwiches and salads are heartier fare. Three booths can provide more privacy if you need that. Otherwise the seating is in one of two open dining areas, plus the bar has seating at it and around it. Lots of glass to showcase the region's glassmaking history. Worth a stop if you are hungry and in Downtown Corning.

I had some guests from out of town stop by, and we decided to eat at the Gaffer Grille. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was a Friday night and the place was busy, but we got a table without waiting, and the service was prompt. The steaks were succulent, and the pasta ( Corning has a strong Italian heritage) was excellent..The municipal parking lot behind the restaurant was full when we arrived, but another lot a block away had plenty of room, and there was some on-street parking available also.

We were in Corning on a business trip, and found this place to be a great place. So good, on a 4 day visit we ate there twice, and one person ate there 3 nights. Food was very good, and the house sirloin is a great cut, and a good value. Service is friendly, but a little slow. Well worth the time to stop and enjoy.
