With 150 miles of pristine coastline, and some of the East Coast's largest swaths of undisturbed maritime forest, the Outer Banks is a popular destination for nature lovers. As an important spot on America's "Flyway," which is the route that migrating birds take on their northern and southern treks across the country, the Outer Banks is the temporary home to hundreds of species of birds. Combine this with the number of deer, foxes, waterfowl, fish, turtles, and even alligators, and it's clear that the Outer Banks is truly a wild vacation destination.
If you love sports, Gaffer’s Sports Pub will hook you up with all the major games and events while you sit back and enjoy a cocktail and specialty sandwich or dinner with fresh local seafood, steak or pasta.
Gaffer’s locally caught fresh fish dinners are prepared broiled or fried and are served with your choice of two sides for less than $20. For the same price you can substitute a ribeye steak for the fish, and for slightly more they’ll add oysters, shrimp, fries and hushpuppies. Additionally Gaffer’s serves two vegetarian pasta dishes which also come with a choice of blackened chicken or grilled shrimp.
Along with the entrees, the Pub offers a wide variety of sandwiches, burgers and appetizers, with a 50-cent wing special every afternoon. Among specialty sandwiches “Gaff Picks” include the vegetarian mushroom, grilled onion and swiss and the fried shrimp or oyster “Po Boy” on a hoagie roll. Besides their unique selection of flavored wings, another favorite appetizer is Gaffer’s Southern Fried Chicken Salad.
Gaffer’s has a full-service bar and features Outer Banks themed cocktails like the “Lazy Sunset” and “Undertow” and daily drink specials, including a “Make-Your-Own-Bloody-Mary- Bar” on Sundays. The Pub serves appetizers every night 'til midnight.
