Has been better, but still has a decent steak

In an attempt to stay relevant, Rafferty's installed a billion television sets a few years ago in what had been a nice, relatively quiet, steak house. But the food and service is still pretty good. If you like flavor in your beef, try the marinated ribeye. If you like your meat the way "God... read more

I stopped her for lunch and enjoyed the lunch combo special. I had 1/2 club sandwich and a salad. The portion for 7 dollars was amazing. I was full after the salad. Most of the other food coming out looked delicious as well. I'm not sure, but I think this is a smaller mid-western chain, but I enjoyed it. The... More

At first glance we thought this place would be great based on how full the parking lot and restaurant were, but once seated we found out differently. It's not that the food or service was terrible, it's more like it was just food. The potato soup which they are famous for had no seasoning and very little flavor. The rib... More

I used to love Rafferty's, especially the croissants with dinner. However the last time I was there, I ordered a steak. The steak was good but with a $14 steak one would expect at least one side. You will pay extra for a side, extra for a salad and if you want croissants you have to ask for them. If... More

Entry smelled amazing and got my tummy rumbling. Avg wait of 15min on a Friday night. Bourbon Glazed Salmon was excellent and the Hubster was pleased with his choice of Pick Two:Chicken and Ribs. Found it very odd not to be offered Bread, Rolls or Peanuts while waiting. Dinner arrived promptly and still no bread, etc. Definitely missed it as... More
