The restaurant was good and the service was good. Pretty standard for a Rafferty's. We would eat there again.

Ever wonder why they put that brown watery stuff next to prime rib? Come to Rafferty's and find out. Au jus can make a difference! Rafferty's in the Hamburg Pavilion on Man o' War, just off I-75, in Lexington, has a smokey cowboy atmosphere that...More

We stopped here for dinner. The food was good, about average. I had a chicken breast sandwich which was a little dry. My spouse had a fried chicken sandwich which was good. Service was good, not great. No complaints, just nothing to write home about.

We love our Rafferty's in Athens, GA and were not disappointed with this location. The food was great and service matched. The kiddos loved the mac-n-cheese while the adults obliterated the chicken tenders. What was left was eaten shortly thereafter.

Some of the best food I have had in a long time. Prices were very reasonable. The service was excellent. Food was full of flavor and offered a wide variety.

My husband ordered a steak, he said it was fatty, not very good. Kids ordered the chicken fingers and didn't care for them. I ordered nachos, they were ok. Unfortunately we would not choose to dine here again.

We chose Rafferty's to celebrate Father's Day and were not disappointed. Although the restaurant was crowded, the service was fast and friendly. Orders were accurate and flavorful. I tried the summer chicken salad with fruit-- perfectly light and filling.

Delighted we found this place and ate here. All of the food was delicious especially the gorgeous sweet potatoes. The wine glass was generously filled. The dessert was so big it's plenty for two. Both of us cleared our plates - no complaints!

Stopped in here while traveling and was not disappointed. Was seated quickly (for 2 people). Our waitress was super nice and took very good care of us. I had the Chef's salad and it was huge! There was a ton of meat on it. I...More

Not sure if a line cook was taking to go orders with his cellphone or if it was personal but a second cook started rubbing his nose so maybe the call was about future company. None the less, a third cook was licking his fingers...More

The one in Lexington has a very large section for large parties. It was an entire wall of the restaurant.
