While visiting Ocracoke my husband always visit Gaffers. It serves excellent food with ample portions. The service is always friendly and quick. They serve awesome loaded homefries among other favorites for breakfast. Their blackened shrimp nachos are to die for.

The restaurant was clean and the waiter was very friendly. The food was reasonably priced and good. Seems like it would have a great atmosphere at night but we went for lunch and would go back.

I think I have eaten here every meal of the day and had almost the entire menu. Breakfast at pub, who knew? It is amazing, more than abundant portions. Lunch and dinner and no different, staff is amazing, always very pleasant and accommodating.

We wanted to try Gaffer's as we saw it was rated #4 on Trip Advisor and it was right across the street from where we were staying. We arrived and were met by a gentleman outside wanting to collect a cover charge from us. We...More
