“Great inexpensive family restaurant”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

There are few inexpensive restaurants in Asbury park where you can bring the family for a basic meal. Old Man Rafferty's is one restaurant that has consistently good food (not gourmet) at reasonable prices

The servers have always been efficient and friendly and my family always enjoys going there.

Their meatloaf special is always a hit and their burgers are great.

We have never left the restaurant dissatisfied with the meal or the service.

“Veggie Pizza!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Old Man Rafftery's is a very large restaurant with a small bar that has three very small TV's. I usually sit at the bar and have their veggie pizza, which is really good. Their desserts aren't that great though, (despite their extensive selection) I think you're better off going for gelato next door or across the street for a cupcake. The bartenders here are very attentive, always very friendly and (more importantly) willing to change the channel for me. The food and service are both consistent, maybe it's for these reasons that I always find myself going back here to catch a knick game every once in a while.

“Consistent”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Been going to this one and the one in Hillsborough for years. Food is consistent, not always over the top, but nice. Desserts are what you go for- check them out on your way in so you can save space. I like the layout of this location, too.

“Sweet Place for Sweet Tooth”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

As soon as you walk in the door you see rows and rows of sweet treats in the display case. The rest of the menu is great... home made meat loaf topping the list and the bartenders are as friendly as the servers.

Great food, reasonable prices, good service! The Prime Rib french dip sandwich was awesome! My friend had the flank steak salad,, which was equally awesome!
