My husband and I go here often. Our latest visit was a late night stop about an hour before close. Food was great and delivered fast. Our server was awesome and had great suggestions.

We have been coming to Raffertys for years. I usually order the chicken finger salad but today I treated myself to a steak. Omg! This was one of the BEST fillets I have EVER eaten. I shared some with both my son and husband and they agreed! Yummy! Good job Raffertys!!

Our group of ten visited Rafferty's last week. We had a reservation and were seated immediately, no wait whatsoever. Our waiter was friendly and courteous and made sure we were taken care of. Their house salad with hot bacon honey mustard dressing is to die for, along with their melt-in-your-mouth croissants. Portions are generous, everything was done to perfection. When... More

We were in Bowling Green fir a conference and decided to have dinner here. The place was packed, however, we were seated promptly. I had the combination which consisted of you choice of two items and a side. I had the house salad, ribs and fries. Everything was delicious.
