First, let me say that I've had better experiences here than my last one. I will come back, as it is one of my wife's favorite sit-down places. However, had a decent-size (7, then 8) gathering for dinner. Got in at 5, so before the rush. Server forgot to bring out my dad's salad appetizer... read more

This is the second time that I have eaten at Rafferty's in Elizabethtown. The first time was not my choice and the second wasn't either. Unfortunately, neither visit was pleasant. I find the menu had good options but when presented with the actual entree' my excitement soon went away. I ordered a crispy chicken salad with ranch dressing. I was... More

We eat here often. The food is good and reasonably priced with a varied menu, the service is friendly, attentive, and timely, and the management in always available. It is assessable with plenty of parking. It is one of the few set down restaurants available in town.

Ended up here back-to-back Saturdays during college football time, mainly because the wife wanted the honey crescent rolls. I got the Bluegrass once and a burger the second time. Service was great and plenty of games to choose from on the TV. Disappointing one of the TVs in the main room had a "burn in" logo in the left corner... More

Their food is good, we had great service and the menu has quite a variety of entree selections. I don't like sitting at a table in the bar area, it is too noisy and dark. The other seating is good.

My husband and I went shopping in E-town and Rafferty's was close by to where we were shopping so we stopped in for a late lunch. We chose to sit outside which was nice. I ordered catfish platter with fries and he ordered pork chops with a baked potato. The waiter brought us 4 crescent rolls which were delicious! Then... More

Food is pretty good, service is real good. Atmosphere is perfect for watching a game....lots of tv's. All in all a good experience for dinner with friends, probably bit the place for a romantic dinner though! Lol

Waited less than 5 minutes to be seated. Server very prompt. Kitchen time was about three minutes. Much faster than other restaurants of this type. Don't agree with this particular restaurants policy on the special which says "Pick 2 and a side for $12.99" but you can't pick 2 chicken or two ribs, even though it doesn't state that. Overall...

After a Mammoth Cave tour we decided to stay in E'town and eat here. The food was ok, service just ok, Spaten Octoberfest was great.

The food is great, & the portions are plenty. They also have takeout. They have several delicious meals on the menu that you can select from and some great desserts. We usually get something from the chicken menu, but everything is good.
