“Great place to grab drinks with friends on the island.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

We went here with several of our friends to grab some drinks. They had a couple of local brews on tap and the bartender recommended that we sample them. We ended up staying for a few hours, so some of us ordered food as well. I had a fried chicken sandwich that was dipped in their spicy Asian wing sauce. It was very tasty. A few of my friends ordered the wings. They said they were good as well. I would definitely go back there and see what other tasty things they have on the menu.

“Still our favorite lunch stop when on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

It's been about 18 months since our last holiday on the Island an we were looking forward enjoying lunches at Gaffers. We were pleasantly surprised to find the pub has new owners. Big Red and his wife are the new owners and you couldn't find a more friendly couple.
As for the food, we believe it's better. If you like coastal style fried seafood this place is great. Not fancy, but good. Big Red uses fresh island seafood so it's a given it will be good.
Remember, this a pub not fine dinning and you'll enjoy.

“Great Ocracoke meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Just had lunch at Gaffers on Ocracoke, it was great, cooked to order, perfect! We stop there every visit to the island and it never disappoints us. Hard to try other places when they do it so well. Owners are terrific!

“Nice lunch stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

We stopped in for lunch on a Monday afternoon mid April 2014, Very freindly owner," Jason" I beleive,Place is a typicla sports bar / lounge. Clean, good service, good food, great portion size, fair pricing for a resort area. Overall nice place for a lunch stop. We were on our bicycles that we rode over from Hatteras so we were not on Ocracoke for any of the evening activities, but they sports trivia and other activities during evenings.
