We have been coming to Ocracoke for 20 years and this is the best food and service that we have ever had. The owners and staff was wonderful. Glad we found Gaffers - we'll be back for a sure! Highly recommend the NC shrimp BLT.

My wife and I stopped in for a late breakfast. The owners, Jason and Ashley, are very hands on and committed to making sure their guests are well-taken care of. The food was tremendous, and the atmosphere is perfect for the island lifestyle$

The owners are so friendly and patient with our large group of 8th Graders. The breakfast buffet they had set up for us could not be more perfect! I will definitely be coming back!
