One of the ABSOLUTE best places for pizza ever. In any city, state, or country. It's hard to put into words why it taste so good, however, with a great crust, tasty sauce, any topping you throw on it will delight the tastebuds.

Rafferty's has a good variety of Pizza and has not lost focus on the fundamentals of making consistent and really good pizza! The small town atmosphere is authentic. The restaurant is not fancy, but is well maintained. The staff really knows the menu and clearly eats there . . . they can and do make great recommendations. We had a... More

We are visiting the area again and make it a habit to come to Rafferty's pizza. Dependable quality and good service. Definitely worth the stop. The Jamaican Jerk pizza was very good.

We recently cycled the Paul Bunyan State Trail which travels right through Nisswa, and stopped by Rafferty's Pizza several times during our 2 day rest stop in this funky little community. While it's not fine dining (you have to order at the counter), the service is friendly and efficient and the food is ready quickly. Would recommend the Mandarin Almond... More

We stopped in late on a Wednesday evening and practically had the place to ourselves. We were greeted very warmly and the wait staff helped us determine what to order. The chicken wings were scrumptious! The pizza good too. For those looking for gluten free pizza, they can do that too. Great service and friendly atmosphere.

Whenever we are in the area. We have to stop in at Raffertys in Nisswa. We love this town and the pizza is great. Get the Kelly special and add onion. My granddaughters said that the chicken strips were great.

Good gluten-free pizza is hard to fine. They had awesome gluten-free pizza even in two sizes!!!! The prices were even reasonable. Somewhat rustic and small but our service was fast and excellent. Loved it! The Northwood feel is fun and would strongly suggest a trip there! Only thing that would make it better is if they served wine :-)

It was good, and we may have picked the wrong pizza's for lunch since they were not what we expected. Think it was our fault. Usually enjoy their lunches including sandwiches and salads.

Good pizza (but not the best I've ever had). Friendly service. Good cheese bread. They have other things on the menu (sandwiches, etc), but their pizza was good. Serves beer, too.
