Facebook: "Gaffer's Famous Fish & Chips"
The portions are Quality and Large!
The exterior looks like a bar which it is but enter and it is totally different than expected. The Bar is in back and that is where the host can be found just go back and she will greet you and seat you anywhere in the Restaurant or bar that ever you prefer.
There is never any waiting and the fish is juicy with a batter that is thin, crispy, and sticks to the fish!
Their "House" Tarter Sauce and Cloe Slaw can't be passed up with is meal so remember to order it separately.
The service and courtesy were outstanding throughout my meal. Stop by here for sure you will not be sorry and ell them I sent you!! Enjoy, Den
A good place to enjoy your partner, with good food and drink.
I just love fish & chips and they prepare them very well, to my liken! The atmosphere is very pleasant and just a good place to enjoy your partner, with good food and drinks!
Good food & drinks.
I've been to the bar portion of Gaffer's more recently, and really enjoyed it. The drinks are the cheapest I've ever seen, and their food is pretty good. Best place to go on this stretch of 99W, and open the latest (that serves alcohol, anyway). It's a nice place to go and spend a few late-night hours with friends, since the crowds aren't rowdy and the music isn't too loud.
The restaurant side is good too, for the times you want a daytime dining experience.
Strong inexpensive drinks.
I've been to Gaffer's about half a dozen times, always the bar area. The cocktails are cheap and strong. There's even a box of drink recipes with prices that you can look through.
There's not much to do though, unless you like gambling- no pinball, no darts, no pool. Not the fanciest place either but good if you want to hang out and chat with friends.
Good food but where's my slaw?.
I went to Gaffers last night for the first time. It was pretty empty (only one other table) at 6:30 so that's not a good sign, but the server was a very nice young lady who sat us and brought us our drinks pretty quickly. The clam chowder I got was so-so. I actually liked the fish, even though it was just cod. They could use some better fries for the "chips"- the ones they had were just the boring regular fries, not even krinkle cut or anything. But I didn't get any cole slaw with it! Doesn't fish & chips pretty much always come with a little side of cole slaw? Perhaps I expect too much. All in all it was a decent dinner for cheap so whatever- I will be back. But next time I am going to demand my slaw!
Very Good Carry Fish & Chips.
The PDXPhatFoodCritic back at cha with the takeout review from F&C joint near Tigard... My wife needed a quick meal one night and ran out to Gaffers. I was impressed with their home-made slaw which is essential with any fish and chips meal. It was crunchy, fresh, well seasoned and creamy delicous. Hate to say it but KFC has one of the best slaws out there and this is on par or better. The fish was tasty, flaky, and perfectly cooked COD. The portions were huge and the chips were really tasty. The only thing lacking was the batter. While it appears to be a traditional English style batter it was almost a little to light. I prefer a really crunch batter and their was a seasoned well but just a little on the light side. Overall I would give them kudos since it takes about 10 minutes to get from their from my house so I am sure with an in person visit the taste would be even better! I highly recommend Gaffers for some quick pub style grub! ... Update my wife visited Gaffers in person yesterday and said the Fried zuccini was super fresh and had a great batter... So I guess I will be visiting gaffers again soon for more great pub fare.
Great neighborhood bar, good service, excellent bar food.
I only go to the bar, not the restaurant. They have the full menu in the bar, but you can order bar appetizers also. The spicy wings are great, less than $5. The bartenders (all women) are friendly and competent, cheap PBR and great spicy bloody marys. On most afternoons/evenings it's not terribly crowded, so you can get a table. It's basically a neighborhood bar on SW Hall and 99W and a comfortable place to hang out. A game room for the gamblers is off to the side. You can get toasted for very modest bucks.
