A forgotten goodie

I think it's been over five years since we've dined here, and we'll now keep this one in the rolodex of choices. The food tasted really fresh and our server Flo was extremely attentive. We sat in the bar on a Saturday night and it was very lively. We did have to wait about 20 minutes to be seated... read more

I had the prime rib with baked potato and salad with blue cheese dressing. My husband had the ribeye with mashed potatoes and salad with ranch dressing. While everything was delicious....I would go back just to get the croissants. You will get one with your salad but make sure and order them as an appetizer as well. And go ahead... More

This has to be my favorite restaurant! I love my Saturday afternoon late lunch, the Ribeye Sandwich and House Salad with Blue Cheese dressing is my favorite. Great place to watch ballgames, servers are always very nice and accommodating. Location is easy to get too and shopping at TJ Maxx is a must after lunch.

If you go to this Rafferty's I would suggest going early as they get very busy at lunch time. We went at 11am. for lunch and we both had their "to die for" potato soup (best in Louisville) and the house salad with the house dressing. Their house dressing is delicious too. It is a hot bacon and oil along... More

Dined here with my mom and kids around 1:30pm. Service was extremely slow. None of the wait staff seemed to be happy. Food was mediocre. I haven't been to Rafferty's in years (used to frequent Lexington) and it was such a disappointing experience. I will say that food is priced fine. Decor was fine. Restaurant appeared clean. But in regards... More

Possibly the best half pound Black Angus Bacon Cheeseburger I have ever had! Had grilled asparagus with it and it was soooo good! My first experience with this chain and I was very happy with it!

We are long-time Rafferty's fans. I've never had a bad experience here as some others have noted. We've been treated well and seated quickly. Now then, I can't really speak to the menu items other than soup and salads, since that is what we always order, I can say that any salad you get is going to be yummy. We... More

Very good service and California burger was delicious. It was the only place open in the area at 10 pm on July 4, went during intermission of pay per view concert at Tinseltown. Bartender was about ready to close but he was super and it did the job.

I walked in and it was not busy. I sat at the bar and the bartender came out from behind the bar and asked me if I wanted a drink. I said I would start with a water and order food. He told me he wasn't my waiter and said someone else would be by. 9 minutes later, the only... More

Were left standing at the door while staff decided where to sit us. After a walk we were seated. Ordered and waited. I ordered the pork chop which was a mistake. They were tough and had no taste. Usually like Rafferty's but won't order the pork chops again.
