Always a favorite for lunch as well as dinner. Service is always very friendly and professional. Our food is consistently excellent and arrives very quickly. The Club sandwich is outstanding, the Bluegrass special and Kona chicken are also favorites. Possibly one of the best for carry out orders as well, the food is always hot and freshly cooked.

Very personable waiter and service was quick. Very nice atmosphere and good view of outside from your table. Good menu but limited in pasta dishes.

My son absolutely loved the BBQ Bacon Burger; claims it's his best meal EVER!! Was able to enjoy our meal outside on deck.

I was disappointed with the quality of food and service when I left the restaurant. We picked this place because of reviews, so we had high hopes before we went. We walked in and there were two hostesses standing at the front. Both were rude and unwelcoming. When we were sat, a nice young lady came up to us and... More

I have been visiting here since the 80's and the food has always been on track. My favorite is their prime rib. With fresh horseradish! Yum! Service is always good and attentive. Weekly favorites added for something optional each day. Original restaurant from the chain.

Rafferty's serves GREAT food. I've NEVER been disappointed with a meal. My favorite item on the menu is their Apple Walnut Crunch. Don't go to Bowling Green without at least pulling over to get a cup of joe and a generous serving of the most delicious dessert known to man!

Dined on the deck last night. Beautiful weather for outdoor dining. First server was an inexperienced young lad but attempted to be helpful. Wine list sucks but then again not the kind of place if you are looking for wine. Cesar salad very good. Ribeye steak would rank amount the best I've ever eaten. Sometimes risky choice as rib eyes...
