Ocracoke’s Sports Bar

By Holden McOwen

Gaffer’s Sports Pub, Ocracoke’s sports bar, is open year round, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, including a late night menu and a full bar open until 2 a.m.

The menu includes fresh ingredients prepared into regional dishes with Gaffer’s trademark flair. From salads, steaks and fresh seafood to burgers, wings and hand-cut fries, the food is always fresh, never frozen. Gaffer’s carries Carolina craft brews on tap as well as bottled beer and wine from North Carolina. Stop by for happy hour from 3 - 5 p.m. daily for 50¢ chicken wings in 14 different flavors. Check out the new oyster bar where you can feast on seasonal seafood and wild-caught oysters shucked right in front of you.  

The dining room and bar are packed with 16 TVs, and the game room has pool tables and video games to entertain the whole family. Gaffer’s offers live music nightly during the season and free Texas hold ‘em weekly. There’s always something going on at Gaffer’s.
