Was there for a party. Just a bar. Fun place for the young kids at night. Partenders did ok but could have moved a little faster and talked a little less.

Let's say this. Before Gaffneys was sold several months back, the food was decent bar food. Good, but not great. Since Max London took over, not so good. We started with a cheese plate for $16. The portions were very generous, the cheese not so good. Go to One Caroline or Henry Street Taproom for a fresh cheese plate. My... More

Back after a long hiatus, forgot how great the food is! Unbelievably good Reuben sandwiches done several different ways, very fresh natural fries and kettle type chips. Good beer selections, great atmosphere, reasonable prices - this is a country gem.

My family and I (yep...kids crashed our date night) just had an amazing meal at Gaffney's. We can't stop raving about it and I would be remiss if I didn't share this positive experience. Their Irish Burger was, quite simply, one of the best burgers I have ever had. Cooked perfectly with Irish Cheddar. The Irish Cheese plate was filled... More

We stopped in mid afternoon. The menu was varied and prices very reasonable. We had sausage, pepper and potato soup to start. It was excellent, with just the right amount of spice. I had the Reuben sandwich with macaroni salad. Portions were large and it was very good. My husband had the special, English muffin Sloppy Joe with seasoned fries.... More

Enjoyed the front window view watching the world going by. Enjoyed pretzels with beer cheese dip and turkey club sandwiches, French fries were great.Great portions that we boxed for next day lunch. It was a quiet Saturday afternoon and we relaxed. Waitress was attentive and wonderful. Will be back.

Decent food with the typical bar food options, but tend to be slightly dressed up. Decently priced drinks for the area. Lots of seating.

We have been to Gaffney's numerous times over the years. Food is typical American food but its never disappointed. We like to go in the nice weather and sit outside. Summers are great with their live music on the patio.

Came here during a conference break. It was nice and quiet due to being on a side street. I got the harvest salad and it was delicious! A nice size, although the same of the bowl made it a bit hard to cut the chicken. Our waitress was really sweet and the place had a Victorian vibe.

This is a fun place in the summer with a great outdoor patio and the food is usually solid. With the exception of the veggie burger which they desperately need to improve upon. It's way mushy and has zero body and little flavor. Recently, I stopped in for a cocktail on the pub level and went to the popcorn cart... More
