Tired from shopping, we wanted a nice meal . We got it ! The burger / drink special was the ticket. My salad was fresh & flavorful . Service was welcoming & efficient with our time. We'll go back. Try it.

So just to bring everybody up to speed, I work in Hamburg Pavilion, so I've visited a lot of the restaurants out there on lunch and for dinner as well. The other day my coworker and I decided to try Rafferty's. I have had Rafferty's before on Nicholasville Rd before they closed this location and always enjoyed the atmosphere as... More

The menu items are very good, but it has a loud Applebee's-type environment. It is near to hotels in the area and the service was average.

My husband and I usually stop here for a good meal as we travel I75 through Kentucky. We just recently had dinner here and it is such an easy on and off the interstate. There are also lots of stores if you need to stretch your legs a bit. Prime rib was good per my husband and the salads are... More

Typical food on the same par as Friday's or Chilis. We didn't have to wait to be seated, but knowing what I know now, I'd never wait in a line for this place. The waiter was very nice and service was good. I enjoyed my meal, but my friend didn't like hers at all. The macaroni and cheese wasn't Kraft... More

My friend and I are visiting and staying in the area and a few people we asked recommended this place but we weren't overly impressed. The food is kinda flavor less, and the main courses aren't that appetizing and overpriced for what you get. Can't say I'll come to the restaurant next time I'm in town.

Easily my favorite lunch spot in Lexington. Sweet tea and appetizer of chicken tenders/sauce is a great starter. My personal favorite salad of any restaurant is their house salad with hot honey mustard/bacon dressing. (House Dressing) Be sure and try the potato soup to accompany your appetizer and salad. Lunch for two will cost about $27. Plenty of parking, staff... More

We were tired and needed an eatery close to our hotel. This was .5 miles away. Very busy for a week nite, always a good sign. Seated right away. Server was smiling, funny, and more than attentive. Potato soup was great, prime rib really good, ribeye yummy, and chicken Alfredo good. The garlic cheesy bread could have had the cheese... More

Our waiter seemed to be still learning the job. It is on par with, or slightly below, TGIFs. I'd rather they offer slightly bigger portions (and a slightly bigger price would be fine). Very limited beer selection (nothing local or unusual).

The service here was terrible. I don't usually complain about places but I have never had service this bad.
