Food was OK but practically everything else sucked. On the main drag in Bowling Green. I had the Jackson Hole Sirloin (8 oz.) medium, which came with a House salad and a side of Broccoli. The side salad was mostly iceberg lettuce, nothing to set...More

Noisy as ever but the food and service make it worthwhile. I usually have the excellent marinated chicken breast with bbq sauce but am branching out.

Food was good. Loved the breaded mushroom appetizer and the buffalo chicken mac and cheese. Everyone in our group had a good meal. We did have a trainee for our waitress, but to be honest, we had at least 3 different waiters handle our table...More

Arguably one of the two Cadillacs of the local restaurant businesses. Service topnotch. Your drink glass will never be empty. Food numero uno.

Overall a good restaurant. Had filet cooked to order. French fries are great. I was a bit disappointed when my dinner salad was served with hard boiled egg.

Never been disappointed with Raffertys. The food is consistent in quality and quantity maybe a little pricey but I may be a little stingy. Service is usually excellent and my meal arrives on time. The croissants are delicious! A very nice place for lunch.

We went months ago and I didn't make the arrangements but I could have sworn someone in our group made reservations. We were a large party, however, and it was graduation night, so perhaps they only take reservations at... More
