The potatoe soup is good. Service is ok. Food is a bit pricey for the quality of the food. It is an ok place but the wait is often long.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years, and out of all the Rafferty's this has been the best- but that is because corporate is in Bowling Green. However- I am starting to come less and less and because the kitchen and my food are turning into quite a disaster. And not to mention since the price has risen........ More

You can't go wrong eating at Rafferty's. The menu is broad, the streaks are wonderful and they have a salad that compares with no other. We've never been disappointed at Rafferty's.

This is always a great choice for lunch or dinner. Food and service are excellent . When you go I suggest you try the mushrooms served with a delicious horseradish sauce. They are sooo good!

Yum and yum again is the only way to express the mouth-watering sensation when I think of this great restaurant. My fiancé and I both selected the lunch specials and enjoyed every bite of the "large" portions served in a timely manner accompanied by southern hospitality and charm.

We ate here as a couple on Labor Day Monday evening. The service was fast and friendly from knowledgeable staff. We both had the prime rib which was melt-in- the-mouth good. We had the regular size and it was pretty big - couldn't imagine being able to finish the large size! I had the baked sweet potato with cinnamon butter... More

This is a great place to eat. Albeit loud, the food is great. We went on a Saturday night, not a bright place as far as lighting and pretty loud. At times, we read lips :-). The staff was very friendly and would definitely recommend this location and will certainly go back again!
