Not a great place. Long wait times and high prices make this place not good for a large family. Service wasn't the greatest either.

I haven't been to a Rafferty's since I was in college in Southern Kentucky 25 years ago. Knowing they were a southern institution and in need of a bourbon-based drink, I decided to give them a try. This restaurant isn't what I remembered, but maybe my tastes have evolved. First, the place had a dated dark woody look. I ordered... More

Went there because it was close to the motel. The burger was prepared as expected and the service was good. Recommended.

I arrived around 8 on a Friday night. The bar and restaurant were busy. The wait for a table was approximately 20. The service was a little slow but the food was good and large portions. The selections were standard chain restaurant fare.

We ate supper here, The food was good except the mashed potatoes were barely warm. Our server liked to talk a little to much to her friends, but overall I would recommend this place.

this is a consistently good place to eat. Many visits and never have been displeased. My wife and I often sit at the bar and enjoy the conversations we have with our bar tender/server. They are very knowledgeable about there items.

The service has always been excellent and the food is good. They offer prime rib after 4pm and the loaded sweet potatoes are wonderful. Great salads too.

It has been a long, long weekend of eating out and spending lots of money for very little. We arrived in Florence on our drive down to Florida from Michigan, road weary and hungry. Not expecting much, we smelled the wood smoke from Raffertys from our hotel and followed our noses. We were greeted with a smile and shown to... More
