Great service, caring attitudes. Saw a team come in that had preordered. Their places were ready with food on the table when they arrived. All they had to do was walk in, sit down, and eat. Talk about helping keep a group on schedule. Impressive!

A friend wanted to go to the Sunday Brunch because they have prime rib. I didn't want that so I had salmon and it was very tasty. Friendly waiters and pleasant atmosphere made for a very nice meal.

Food is American style with a varied menu. The quality is very good across the board and they have the best service in town.they are very popular with locals who reliably return.i especially like the prime rib and their salads.

The Good: Good Variety, Healthy Choices, Some Tasty Dishes, Well Decorated, Good Service The Bad: It's a chain, No awesome dish, Spotty Quality This is the Original location for a small chain of restaurants. It's a better choice across the board than O'Charlies, Ruby Tuesdays or Friday's. It's well decorated with kind of a lodge feeling. It has a varied... More

Recommended by the desk clerk at the hotel, this was a good choice. Despite what appeared to be a line, we had no wait for a table. The staff all seemed to be college age, and our waiter told us that he is a WKU student. Server was very friendly and attentive, service was quick, and food was very good.

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.

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
