Stopped for lunch while on the road. This place knows how to treat people! Great service and wonderful food. Too bad we can't go back for a while.

I visited on a busy Saturday. It was about 6 and already packed. The wait was only about 25 minutes though. We enjoyed mixed drinks at the bar and were seated within the time the hostess said. The server was very friendly. My medium rare Jackson Hole filet steak was cooked perfectly. My son's looked good as well. All of... More

We dine here frequently and have never had a bad meal or bad service. We have tried several different dinners and while some were not my favorite, they were all very good. The service is the best I've experienced in any restaurant,

This was my first experience with a Rafferty's and from the outside, it looks like a Bennigan's'/Applebee's/Friday's/et al, but that all changes when you open the menu. It's a steak place! There are other options, but the steaks were great. Be careful that you don't fill up on the salad. It's tempting. Fresh, lot's of interesting additions, and large. If... More

Stopped here for lunch on a Friday. The special was fish n chips with coleslaw. Very generous portions. My husband enjoyed potato soup and a house salad. The croissant was light and topped with butter. All of this amounted to $17. The staff was attentive and friendly.

Friendly waitstaff. The filet was more tender than the ribeye and waiter offered to replace the steak but my husband said no. Huge side salads and loved the honey mustard and bacon dressing! Baked potatoes were also huge. We took most of everything home in a doggie bag we had so much food. The ribeye actually tasted better the 2nd... More

We had the pork chop with Cajun butter and it was wonderful. They have the best homemade ranch salad dressing in town. The crescent rolls melt in your mouth.

Best steaks in town. Filet mignon and cowboy sirloin. Mahi Mahi on menu and swordfish. How do you choose between the two?
