So the dinner special was " Fresh Parmesan encrusted drum" seriously folks...it was frozen in the middle and super fishy (which is unusual for drum) Let's call it blue fish. The waitress reeked of weed and I'm sure she just burnt one just before coming to the table! The band was the only good thing about our hours spent at... More

Food was terrific! We had a toddler that was behaving like a toddler, and the owners went out their way to make her happy! We will be back!

I would HIGHLY recommend eating here! My husband and I had a great meal - FRESH and prepared perfectly. The owner was there, came by and spoke to us for a bit and was a pretty chill guy. After a long day of exploring the outer banks you should stop in here and eat before the ferry ride back to... More

Called in an order to go and as in the past they were excellent. Great service and great wings. I like the flavor name rusty.

Been wanting to come check this place out, glad I did, especially off season! Everything was good, my daughter just ate a nice plate of bacon, (which she enjoyed) will definitely come back later I'm the year.

Gaffer's is a fairly large restaurant with two bars. We were here off season but I can tell that this is the place to go (in season) on Friday and Saturday nights for entertainment and adult refreshments. My wife and I enjoyed a very nice dinner while seated at the bar. The house special mixed drinks are a bit pricey... More

We stopped in after the ferry into Ocracoke. Had the Philly cheesesteak special. Why not take a chance, not quite like the cheesesteak, but pretty good, nice roll, and a bargain. Nice ambiance, friendly waitress, good margarita.

I had a fish sandwich. The fish was incredible - light and flaky. It was served with a delicious tarter sauce. Atmosphere was good, service was a 10 as well as the meal.

Thank forrestlive
