I have been eating at Rafters at least once a week for many years. Service is excellent. Burgers, quesadillas, Buffalo wings, ribs, and salads are all consistently excellent and more reasonably priced compared to chain restaurants such as Chili's and Applebee's. This is a comfortable restaurant for everyone: families, sports fans, casual business lunches, celebrations, and couples. It all depends on where you sit.

The people who the management chose to employ at this "restaurant" are so below par that it is questionable whether or not they are working for more than tips alone. And just as an advisory if they were working for tips.. they won't be making much because I have never come across a more rude and chit-chatty group of people in my life!! The second me and my friends ordered something it was more than clear that the staff was talking about us and it made us want to leave.. but we thought that would be rude. Thinking back on my time at rafters it probably would have been less rude for us to just leave than to tolerate the way that the staff treated us. DISPICABLE>
