“Great restaurant for any occasion!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

The food is always wonderful, large menu selection, best service you will ever see and the prices are very reasonable. Good for family, special occasion, ladies who lunch, just go and enjoy! Club sandwich is amazing! Very, very busy around normal dining hours so go off peak for faster seating.

“Our Favorite Local Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

Rafferty's is our favorite place to eat in Bowling Green. We eat here several times a month. The service is always outstanding. We have never had a bad meal here. I love their salads and the fact that all of their salad dressings are made in house...the garlic ranch is my favorite. Their hot fingers are my favorite appetizer. Their steaks are wonderful and I also love the Kona chicken. They have the best hand cut fries that you will find. The french dip is another favorite of mine. You can get fresh fruit as a side which is another plus! This may be a chain restaurant but it's the best meal in Bowling Green and the best service.

“This place has a history of excellent service and top quality food, however this visit was a disappointment.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Fried chicken salad was missing its croissant and made of 90% iceberg lettuce. Table of 5 did not get any refills throughout a 1.5 hour business lunch. Asked for the croissant and they charged for "an extra".

Not the expected experience at this locally owned restaurant.
