Great family dining, friendly fast service! Clean Bathrooms-always a plus! :-) The cheese fries were my family's favorite.

Rafferty's filet, named the Jackson Hole, is the best steak in town. Great service, food and drink in a casual environment. They have a nice patio for outdoor seating and lots of TVs inside and out to watch your favorite sports. I like sitting at the bar where the service and conversation is always excellent.

The server was outstanding and had great recommendations. I had salmon and my husband had the filet. Both were excellent choices and cooked to perfection.

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.
