decent meal near kennesaw mall area

We stopped by late after a wedding. The boys had burgers and fries which were very good. The fried mushrooms and salads were good. We were pleased to get a decent meal after 10:00pm.

Our family of 10 showed up at 4:15 pm for dinner. We were celebrating a number of happy events. We had a table set up for us rather quickly. Our Server James managed our large group along with his other tables without a snag. We had appetizers of mushrooms and also nachos. Both were wonderful. We had various steaks and... More

Went into this place on a whim and left quite full. Happened to be an all-you-can-eat ribs special - though 1 portion was more than enough, and they didn't skimp on the ribs, and the quality. Don't attempt any dessert yourself - more than enough for 2...

The food here is average. The restaurant is older and has that weird odor older restaurants get. The menu seems out dated. There is nothing here that would distinguish them from the 50 surrounding restaurants.

I've reviewed Rafferty's before because we like it for lunch. However, This story takes the cake. The wife and I decided to have a lite, late supper last evening. We love the house salad with the house special "Hot Bacon, Honey Mustard" dressing. So we had the Potato soup and 2 salads. Late this morning. we both looked at each... More

To be fair it was a dreary rainy evening. Not many people around. Seemed to take a long time to get our food. While everything was OK it all seemed just a little off. The fruit bowl, as an example, had pieces of melon that included the hard part next to the rind. Getting a refill on my drink from... More

My wife and I ate at Rafferty's a couple weeks ago while staying at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn. We both ordered a full rack of baby back ribs with a baked potato. The ribs were excellent, cooked to the perfect doneness. They were lightly sauced with a mild BBQ sauce, not too sweet but not particularly spicy either. No... More

It took a bit longer for the server to acknowledge us.my DiL had the chicken bacon sandwich and she stated the chicken was grilled and seasoned well. I had the chicken salad and soup combo. It was a large portion. The... More

My husband and I went to Rafferty's in Kennesaw. The service was good but sporadic. We had a different person for everything. Kind of confusing. We both ordered steaks...his a ribeye which was paper thin. Mine the filet...neither was up to our expectations. Neither of us ate even half...We will not go back.

I had the spinach salad with salmon which I heartily recommend. My sisters both ordered the crispy chicken salad that they thoroughly enjoyed. Quick, professional and friendly service. There are many other choices on the menu- not limited to salads.
