Rafferty's is a Great Place for the entire family and Couples! The food is always tasty, flavor to die for and the servers are awesome ! Your drink gets 1/2 down and it is automatically refilled! You don't have to wait for your server! The most time we have had to wait for our food is 20 min! Usually within... More

My fiance and I decided to have dinner here about a week ago, and we're glad we did! Chris is a credit to your restaurant, he went above and beyond in assisting us and making us feel welcome. We will be back!

My family and I dine at Rafferty's often and have never had a bad experience. Best value in town. Great service and appetizers too. Get the Backyard burger.

I love their salads and honey croissants. Our service has always been excellent and our wait time is never long. You can never go wrong at rafferty's. My husband enjoys their ribs and mashed potatoes . To be honest that's all he orders every single time. Apparently he can't get enough of them!!

Great place to eat no matter the time. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Try the croissant with honey butter. It's slap your mama good.

You can go for lunch and have some of the best soup and salad quite inexpensive. Have had many business meetings here. Nice place, the food has always been wonderful, I can't think of one time I've been disappointed.

Rafferty has really good food for reasonable prices. I've not had anything that didn't taste good. They are in an easy to find location as well.
