This was our first time. We were glad someone suggested Rafferty's. LOVE the croissants and the cheese fries were good. Enjoyed the grilled salmon but not a fan of tarter sauce. Everyone else enjoyed the BBQ chicken, ribs and chicken fingers. Morgan did a great...More

Walked right in. Place smelled delicious. Potato soup is too die for. Salad is the bomb. Cowboy sirloin was perfect. Service was great. My only complaint. Servers all standing around having very personal conversations that I had to listen to while trying to visit with...More
