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.

Looks decent initially from the outside, but upon being seated the table and menus were sticky and dirty w/ dried BBQ sauce etc. on them. Our server was rude when questions were asked about items on the menu. My family and I were trying to visit but it was clear they were trying to push/rush us out. Would not go... More

Spent 40 days in Etown for work and me and my co-worker gave this place a shot for lunch one day. We came in and had to wait for about 5 min for the hostess at the front to seat us. She wasnt in the front she was in the back. We asked if we could sit at the bar... More

This restaurant has some decent food and has a great atmosphere for watching sports with all of the TV's. The service is not very good, but that probably has more to do with the stupid system where your server isn't supposed to help their own tables by walking past another. The pricing is not great, but you can live with... More

Rafferty's provides a combination of great food, great service and a very good atmosphere (if you like sports bars.) The prime rib was excellent and cooked perfectly. Their salads are always crisp and fresh. The servers have friendly attitudes and the food is brought out quickly. It's hard to think of anything negative to say. Most consistent restaurant in Elizabethtown.
