Went in late on a Sunday evening, looking for a decent meal after a long day and I am unfamiliar with the area. Did not want fast food, was looking for something substantial and nutritious. The service was excellent and the food was plentiful, delicious and well presented. Enjoyed my meal thoroughly and would recommend strongly.

Busy, busy place on the night we went but we only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. We ordered the hamburger/noodle/vegetable soup, (it was a really cold night), which we both found tasty and hot). We ordered the Ribeye steak and the Prime Rib and both were very good. Seasoned well, cooked as we asked. The grilled asparagus that... More

On one of my frequent pilgrimages to the Holy Land of Corvettes; I again stopped at Rafferty's. The service and food are outstanding. With everything from burgers to steak and seafood; Rafferty's has something for everyone. No matter what you get; be sure to try the free croissants. They are incredible. You could make a meal of them. WARNING: They... More

Crowded and noisy. Server was very rushed and seemed distracted. Food was okay and meat was cool and tasteless. Restaurant could of been cleaner as well. I think the restaurant wasn't prepared for such a busy weekend. We had eaten here in the past and it was better. Don't think we will go back when in town.

Nice cut of prime rib for an affordable price. It was delicious, especially with the horseradish sauce. Great service too. It was a Saturday, we were told we would have a 45 min wait, but we were seated after 20 min.

We had a small social event with a couple guys. I got the combo potato soup with a 1/2 Club sandwich followed by Brookie (brownie with a scoop of ice cream and lots of flavorful things). it was yummy. The potato soup is as good as it gets. Service prompt and courteous. Atmosphere perfect for the occasion. Nice location. We... More

The restaurant menu is good with plenty items to pick from. The serving size is large. the food is very delicious and well prepared to your taste. The dining room is large as well as outside seating if the weather is good. Turn around time is good..

Has always been a favorite until last night. An accident last year left my husband in a wheelchair and last night was the first time we had been out to a restaurant since. I chose Raffertys thinking it would be no problem since they have a nice ramp out front. Wrong, the ramp is great but the two doors leading... More
