Visited this restaurant during our overnight stay in the city and we were not disappointed. Our server tonight was Tonya who provided OUTSTANDING service by constantly checking to see how we were doing, making sure we were satisfied with our food and keeping our drinks refilled. We ordered the seafood gumbo and I will admit, it wasn't like my Louisiana... More

On way back from Florida picked this area to stop. This place was an easy walk from our hotel. Easy to get in didn't feel crowded at all. Food great and plentiful. Nice patio with fireplace but too cold this time. Lots of TVs to watch games Clean and good service A little pricey for a stop on way.

Rafferty's Restaurant is just as good as old standbys like Fridays or Applebee's, but for some reason, fewer people know about it. They have wonderful entrees, sides, salads, sandwiches and appetizers. Food is always first-class at reasonable prices. Plus staff is always helpful in helping me make choices. I love it. Make up your mind for yourself.

Walked to the restaurant from the Hampton Inn. There is a fire pit outside and I wish it had been warm enough to sit there. However, we were seated near the indoor fire place so that was nice. The food was good and reasonably priced, and the service was good.

Came here after meeting with our realtor for lunch. My last review of this place was an overwhelming impressive experience - on everything. Today was just slightly off. Not sure if it was because it was lunch this time as opposed to dinner. Our server was great and even the manager was very attentive to a minor situation we had.... More

I hadn't been in a Rafferty's in quite some time, so I thought this would be as Good of time as any. I had the Ribeye and it was great. I would also recommend the cheesecake. Everything was nice except for the restrooms. Not sure what the clean their floors with, but you could hardly stand up in there.

Croissant's with honey butter and candied pecans are an odd but delicious appetizer. Turkey sandwich was one of best I've had.

The food is always great, service is outstanding. I have been going to this resturant for over 20 years. The only suggestion I have is they have the old steak house interior I think they might want to do an update.

Thank William C
