Really, really fast service. Did I mention it was fast? They do like a device gang. By the time we were served our entree, we had had 5 different servers. They were very attentive to our needs. So, the food is good. Better than fast...More

Raffertys has been a staple in our family’s dining for over 25 years. We love it especially dining outside. Service is always excellent as I never have to wait for a refill.

Raffertys is off Exit 22 of I-65 on Scottsville Road. It is across from the airport. Nice clean restaurant. Staff is friendly and efficient. A step up from, other casual restaurants. It is a part of a chain that also has locations in Lexington. Not...More

We went months ago and I didn't make the arrangements but I could have sworn someone in our group made reservations. We were a large party, however, and it was graduation night, so perhaps they only take reservations at... More
