Rafferty's has been our favorite spot in E'ville for years. The service in second to none and the food is some of the best around. Never worry about getting your drink refilled or waiting on your waiter, one person may take your order but the rest of the gang helps out. There is always some other waiter getting you another drink or bringing you your food. Their crispy chicken salad is simply amazing,along with the rest of the menu. The sweet tea is the best in town and the food always gets to your table quick. They are usually crowed so get there early and be ready to chow down. They have curb side pickup if you want to stay in your pj's.

What a pleasant surprise!

Very good service in a nice restaurant..............the bar area has many TVs to watch ball games.....the staff is very friendly.

But, best of all....................the food was quite good!!! There were 4 of us.............the Batter Fried Mushrooms are a must, although somewhat pricey in our opinion at $8.95. However the portion, at that price, is quite generous............we got 2 orders and one would have been perfect for the 4 of us.
3 of us had their "Famous Potato Soup"....thick & creamy and flavored with cheese & bacon.

2 of us had the Hickory-smoked Baby Back Ribs...................quite good and 1/2 slab is plenty unless you want to take some home for the next day.

1 of us had the Chicken Finger Platter...............also quite good.

And the fish of the day was a choice of Salmon or Tilapia...............the tilapia was quite good having been grilled...........had a slightly smokey flavor from the grill. It was served with broccoli which was cooked al dente.

When in the area, we recommend it for an enjoyable meal.
