We went here because the Hanger was closed. Paid $26 for a platter of wings. Not good at all. Burger was dry and my friend ordered a $9 Cesar salad and there was maybe two croutons on it! The drinks were not good either. Beer...More

Rafters is a fun place to go for burgers and other pub food. The burger selection is fairly extensive with some really creative burgers. Unlimited popcorn which has always been fresh when I have eaten at Rafters. Also, they have keno, trivia, numerous tv's, basketball...More

Although Rafters is mainly a "sports bar" with numerous TV screens, it is still very good for a light lunch (all I've tried). Their "burger and beer" deal is especially attractive: beer and burger for $10. The free popcorn is a nice touch for the...More

We stopped here for a quick bite, chosen mostly for convenience. It's a bar, with a side restaurant area. We ordered two items, fried mac and cheese and the fish tacos. These were the worse fish tacos I've ever had: heavy batter, deep fried and...More
