They're running ads for their restaurant, Rafferty's, but the place is understaffed and when we were there, the two staff members present were a mess. One was an older gentleman who was in the midst of tremendous struggle in dealing with the register, and the other lady was just standing there talking to him. Then she went into the kitchen....

Located near the lobby of the Country Club Hotel & Spa. The food is good. The service may be a little slow because there are only 1 or 2 waitresses who take orders, serve the food and bus the tables. If the waitress isn't available, you can help yourself to the coffee service.

Inconsistent delivery of food from the kitchen. The food itself is good and nice portions. Just plan on possibly waiting awhile. Some meals came out quickly...others not. Nice waitress staff.

I'm not generally a buffet eater, but since the restaurant was on premises, I decided to give it a shot and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was good and had a decent variety, the service was top notch - prompt and courteous, and the price was reasonable.

Buffet on Easter Sunday was a big disappointment. Food not fresh, desserts boxed, nothing made from scratch. Service slow and unprofessional in my opinion. For $24 a person I was expecting a much better meal and experience. I won't be back.

I am reviewing the Easter Sunday brunch buffet at Rafferty's in the Country Club Hotel & Spa. Never having visited the Hotel before, I was relying on the pictures and menu descriptions to give an accurate picture of what we could expect. At $24 per person it was not inexpensive. However, the food presented was not fresh looking, and was... More

I ordered the wings, they were pretty meaty and the sauce was good. I also tried the pizza and it was good as well. The crust was thin and crisp the way I like it.
