After visiting Mamoth Caves we were hungry! Had the pick two for 12.99. I had BBQ chicken (breast covered in cheese and bacon...yum) house salad and loaded baked potato. Hubby had the half ribs, chicken tenders and real homemade french fries. He added the house salad, which was almost a meal in itself. Tomatoes and lettuce, plus little potato sticks,... More

Went with friends over the past summer, and the food was very good all the way around, although the options were standard/average for the midwest. It was also a bit pricey; guess we're helping pay for the attractive decor. Good option for a semi-special night out...

If you remember the name of a restaurant you went to one time, 10 years ago and if it's still in business that a good sign. If you go there and it's still as good as you remembered that's the best sign. I especially remembered the Loaded Potato Soup. It was still delicious and very filling. They added Nutty Honey... More

Stopped in while we were in Bowling Green to visit the Corvette Plant and Museum. Found Rafferty's in a brochure. We were not disappointed. Food and service were outstanding. If we had more time we would have gone back for dinner.

We have been enjoying meals at Rafferty's for years! And we are never disappointed in the food or the service. They have delicious salmon, filets, ribs. Our favorite quick meal is the potato soup and house salad. We love it. I think Rafferty's has one of the best salads in town. Their house dressing (Honey Mustard/Hot Bacon) is always a... More

Friday and fortunately we were there early as it filled quickly and lots of folks were waiting when we left. Regardless, the service was first class. We picked it because local friends say it's the best steak place in Bowling Green. We all had steaks or prime rib and they were great flavor. I always order rare and my steak... More

The service person was fun an energetic. I order salmon dish to go,. When I opened the bag of food at my hotel. It was in a plastic container, which did not keep the salmon heated. It was luke warm and over cooked. The soup was weak. I ate a couple spoonfuls and threw it out.

My wife and I went here for dinner early on a Friday night when we were passing through Bowling Green while traveling. We were seated immediately upon entering the restaurant. Our drink orders were taken quickly and brought to the table promptly. We both decided to have the prime rib cooked medium and they both came to the table red... More
