My husband and I love to do lunch at Rafferty's. I have a very hard time not ordering their hamburger cause I love it so much. However I have had several other things that were really great. I have tried their steak, Mahi-mahi, Hopping John Soup, salads and more. But I still can hardly break away from that burger. It... More

Ate there twice in a 2 week stay in Louisville; both times the food was excellent. The chicken salad was good and the burgers were too; loved the creamy potato soup. A friend shared a bite or two of an enormous piece of sweet potato pie- that was delicious! I wish we had one close to my home.

I've eaten at this restaurant a couple of times and each time the food was fantastic! I order the Mahi Mahi blackened with asparagus and a baked potato. My girlfriend had grilled salmon and a baked sweet potato. The service is great. The restaurant is clean and we always enjoy the atmosphere. They so have an outdoor patio to enjoy... More

Even though this had been our only dining experience at Rafferty 's, for what I understand is a chain restaurant it did not disappoint. They have a fairly large menu but they specialize in steaks like most steakhouses. I ordered a half rack of ribs with a house salad and baked potato. This was included with the price of my... More

We love this place when we want a good meal and not a long wait. I always love the Stacked Sub sandwich. I always take half home. I also love their salads. Service is good and has a good atmosphere. Bar area is good if you just want to go by and have a couple drinks and watch a ball... More

We had a great meal, their food has great flavor and it's a relaxing environment. The chicken salad was a tasty. My husband had the Kona chicken, a great grilled flavor. The jar drink was a loaded so we had them add some extra lemonade and it was perfect.

Don't pass this place by. My parents loved the prime rib sandwich, the salad was great, and he had a burger that was really good. The server was excellent!
