I sometimes like to travel on the fly so when I got the opportunity to visit friends this week-end, I took it. After a wonderful trip to the Corvette Museum with my bff we wanted something tasty, light and not part of a chain. We chose Rafferty's and we were NOT disappointed. There was ample parking, the decor was exceptional,... More

We were in town for a function at the National Corvette Museum and had heard that Rafferty's had good food. Well, that was an understatement, the food is delicious. I had the ribs, and they fell off the bone, the salad could have been a meal in itself, and everything was great, including the service! We will be back in... More

One of the most efficient service staff in town. Water glass never gets empty. Potato soup is always consistently the same and very good. Great for groups up to maybe a dozen.

Our group of ten visited Rafferty's last week. We had a reservation and were seated immediately, no wait whatsoever. Our waiter was friendly and courteous and made sure we were taken care of. Their house salad with hot bacon honey mustard dressing is to die for, along with their melt-in-your-mouth croissants. Portions are generous, everything was done to perfection. When... More

We were in Bowling Green fir a conference and decided to have dinner here. The place was packed, however, we were seated promptly. I had the combination which consisted of you choice of two items and a side. I had the house salad, ribs and fries. Everything was delicious.

Rafferty's is a reliable place to have lunch or dinner. I know there are several of these throughout the Southeast, bu this is where they started and it shows. The service is the very best and the food is good and reasonably priced. This Rafferty's is best known for its outdoor dining. They have the nicest deck in town. Its... More

Nice atmosphere and good service could not overshadow average food. Salads are large but not well balanced. Good soups and a full bar. Close to hotels.
