The place we had intended to stop at was closed for the season--and we're glad it was! We got wonderful food at Gaffer's. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the food was delicious.

For the weary traveler or for the local townsfolk, this is the place to eat. Arriving here on thanksgiving, they have their annual Thanksgiving Buffet. And that’s an underestimation. Turkey, cheesecake, cranberry, you name it, they have all the classics. Definitely recommend.
