There is nothing special about this restaurant. We ate here as it was at the hotel we were staying at so it was convenient. While the service at the bar the evening before was wonderful it lacked the same enthusiasm the next day with the day crew. Food was just okay nothing special and the lady... read more

I went into Rafferty's for dinner because it was convenient. Everything is overpriced so I ordered toasted ravilois. They came out and were beef filled. I stay away from red meat for stomach issues so I told them I wasn't super pleased. A woman that I assume was the manager came out and told me that they couldn't do anything... More

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.
