See my review for Prohibition restaurant. Old Man Rafferty's was just okay. Menu was ordinary, as was the food. Prohibition's service, menu, and food and drink offerings are far better. This is located in the old Steinbach's department store building, first floor.

Cakes are fantastic, rest of food rather average. Servers are nice. Sit by the window to see tourists walking by.

Old Man Rafferty's closed its doors in August 2014. Just writing to alert TripAdvisor and readers that the place is under new management. Prohibition, the new place, had a soft opening in September 2014, with an official opening slated for early October.

I am a fan of Old Man Rafferty in New Brunswick. The Asbury location was disappointing in quality of food and service

recently went for drinks at the bar. The service was so bad that we couldn't wait to leave. I don't know if the bartender was new or what, but there weren't many people there, and it took forever to get a drink. I've heard from...More
