Our waitress was very nice and did a good job taking care of us. I ordered the fried Headlock which was extremely fresh and delicious. My husband and daughter both ordered the shrimp baskets...which the shrimp were not fried long enough. We called the waitress over and she apologized, took it away and gave my daughter a fresh meal which was way better the 2nd time. She explained they had a new cook. We also ordered wings as an appetizer which were very good. I like them crispy with wing sauce on the side. They were perfect and not tiny little wings. Their prices were reasonable. We would come back again.

Visited Ocracoke over last few days. Dined at Gaffers for all but one meal when we supported the fireman's ball. Tried the sample platter, shrimp, wings, and burgers along with breakfast. Not your typical get you in and out eating establishment. Really appreciated us being there. Will certainly see these new found friends again.

We were on vacation and looking for a place to have lunch. We were traveling with a small dog so options were limited. We spoke to the owner and he was very accommodating and provided us with a shaded area outside to have lunch. He also brought our dog a little bowl of water as it was a very warm and sunny day. Lunch was outstanding. We had a shrimp po boy and swordfish with coconut rice. The service was terrific. Everyone was very attentive which made for a wonderful experience.

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.

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.
