Casual dining is good. More elaborate food is so so. Desserts are excellent. Accommodates children as well as seniors.

Only a few miles away from Dukes farm. Had a quick bite. Waitress was helpful and courteous. Only a short wait after we ordered. Food was good

Went for lunch here. Very long menu so definitely many food choices. I got the brat sandwich, which was a bit disappointing. The bread was not very fresh.

Been here multiple times each time, dissatisfied. Chicken has been undercooked salads subpar, and consistently poor service. Might go back to take the desserts to go.

Good size bar area and also outside patio seating. Was greeted by bartender as soon as I sat down. There’s a good selection of craft beers, including local Jersey beers, but the beer menu is not up-to-date - bartender had to tell me the beers...More

We've been to Rafferty's several times and while we've always a good meal their desserts are well worth sticking around for.
