“Quaint little place”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Had the fried trout sandwich and we loved it. The place is set up for live music (but we were there for lunch). You can see the marsh outside the window. We had a fine time. Great, prompt and friendly service. Fewer draught beer choices than Howards, but you will still find one you like.

We went there to watch college basketball. Was a fun atmosphere and great friendly staff. Enjoyed the bar food. Fun place to eat, drink and watch the game.

“Try Trivia Night!”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Going to trivia night at this pub was one of the best experiences of our trip. The place was filled with locals, so we definitely got a flavor of what it was like to be a true Ocracoker (not sure if that's what they call themselves). The questions weren't super difficult, but they were challenging enough to make it quite competitive in a very good natured way. The food was better than I expected. I had the black bean nachos and they had $2 PBRs, which worked for me.

“Most Accomadating Restaurant in the Area”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

We were in Ocracoke Island, NC for my niece's wedding. The reception dinner had been planned to take place @ Gaffer's Sports Pub. Upon the guest arriving, the seating seemed to be off, and, it was discovered that most of the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen had not R.S.V.P.ed including a guest. The staff @ Gaffer's promptly accomodated the extra guests and due to the large party, they proceeded to close the restaurant stating "Private Party". I was so pleased that this restaurant had potentially placed themselves in a position to lose business to assure that this reception would be everything a bride and groom's family would have wanted it to be, you don't see this kind of service today. The staff were just terrific, and, the food was excellent. Anyone looking to book a party in Ocrakoke Island, NC should definitely place their business with Gaffer's Sports Pub. Five Star in my book.
