Always good

I'm local here so I have been to Rafferty's many times. Never disappointed. My only "complaint" is the lack of choices for draught beer. I personally like Budweiser but it seems that craft brews and micro brews are quickly displacing domestic. I don't remember exactly what the have on tap but I... read more

True to it's roots, steak over a wood fire with honey glazed baked goods and awesome salad I am always going to make Rafferty's my first second and 3rd choice. If the wait is under a 1/2 hour just grab a seat at the bar and chat with whomever cause it is Kentucky and we are friendly down here. Any... More

On a business trip and stopped here for a few steaks and cocktails. Able to have a drink outside as it was warm enough, and then went inside for dinner. Very pleased with the rib eye, cooked perfectly and the service was outstanding. Will be back on next trip in town.

On vacation do you like to eat at a lodge? Well if you are in Florence KY this should work just fine for you. Park in the lot and you smell the wood fire, you see the cedar siding. Be seated inside and you will find food befitting the ambiance. I always have a steak done medium rare and that... More

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 intended" then the regular ribeye or... 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
