Our family had a blast, singing karaoke outside. We were looking for a place that our kids go enjoy as well as us adults.

The Gaff is the place to go for good reasonably priced beer and pizza in Port A. The "Gaff" is their loaded pizza available in 12- and 14-inch sizes. They also have a good selection of draft, canned and bottled beers. Usually there are a couple of draft 16-ounce beers on special for only $2.50. It's a nice, friendly local... More

This is it!! If you want cold beer and the best pizza on the island. Come to the Gaff. The service is friendly and prompt. The back yard is the perfect place to enjoy all things including Pizza and Beer. Make your way to the gaff. You won't be disappointed.

We visited on the night of their monthly belt sander races and it was beyond anything we could have imagined - so much fun! The pizza was delicious and the atmosphere was all about having... More

Favorite Hangout of the Port A Locals - Gaff has fantastic atmosphere & pizza! Belt Sander races are a must see as well as music and other festivities. One of the most dog friendly bars around and golden retriever approved haha. Would defiantly visit again if ever back in Port A!

It's an old local beer joint. I'm talking way old. But, the beer is so cold it sticks to your hands. Speaking of hands, their pizza is, hands down, the best you can ever hope to eat. It takes awhile but the wait is worth it. You watch them make it and then cook in one of two little pizza... More
