Took a Chance

They seated us promptly, everyone was nice and the food was great!!!! There were a lot of TV s with sports stuff on but they weren't overwhelming. Great for those who wanted to watch, and for those who didn't like me, it was ok!!

At lunch, I ordered a sirloin Steak, medium, and a side of stemmed Broccoli. The steak was cooked perfect for me and delicious! The seasoning was excellent. There was a very generous serving of nicely steamed broccoli. The broccoli was not seasoned and bland. The service was excellent. The restaurant cozy and pleasant. I will eat at Rafferty's again.

We visit Lexington once each year and always make a stop at this place. We like the atmosphere, the food and team service.

Rafferty's has great food and a great atmosphere, and great prices. I highly recommend the Ultimate Club.

We had a delicious meal there today. The hostess kept the line moving and we were seated quickly. The server was attentive, experienced and did great! Their Mushrooms are a "must have appetizer"!! So...So Good!! The meal was delicious as well! I definitely plan to visit again soon!

After a long drive from North Carolina we were hoping to have a nice dinner. Wrong. I ordered the filet medium rare and my boyfriend ordered a ribeye medium. My filet was rare. I actually do like my steaks a little more on the rare side than medium and am never one to send food back but it was unbearable... More

They have added celery seeds( I think )to the Soup-way to much of it! Why spoil a great thing? Great service in record time!

Hearty potato soup, citrus chicken salad with fresh fruit on the side, warm croissants, a drink from the bar are just a few of selections available. Service is usually good but sometimes some servers are a little off their game.
