We ordered the appetizer nachos and chef salad. The nachos were fully loaded with everything you would expect and the salad was fresh and well presented. We took home half the salad for supper. Blue cheese dressing was a dollar upgrade, not much, but from the taste, I'm not sure it was merited. Note to manager: rethink that. Service on... More

Everything on the menu is good, they have great dirty martinis, friendly staff and a good central location. Not in the busy well traveled part of town

We have been going to Rafferty's for over 28 years. They have the best dessert in Jackson TN - my opinion of course. Try the Apple Walnut Crunch! We go just to get that!

Excellent menu, great service. The appetizers are great. My favorite is the Buffalo chicken mac n cheese. Their chicken strips are delicious and burgers are pretty good as well.

Food was well prepared and served right away. Service was adequate especially with the number of people in the restaurant. Price is a little high but willing to pay on occasion.

This was our first visit to a Rafferty's, and we will certainly go to one the next we have the opportunity. It was a week night, so they weren't busy & we were very promptly seated & waited on, and our waiter continued to do an excellent job throughout our meal. We shared an appetizer of fried mushrooms and enjoyed... More

Wait help and food excellent. Steak was tender and flavorful. Do try the hot bacon salad dressing. Place is worth trying. One recommendation ..... tell host to not parade older folks to back of restaurant.

They brag about their potato soup and they're right - it was outstanding. I was sorry I only ordered a cup - go for the bowl. He liked his burger. I had their chicken salad plate with fruit. The fruit was mostly melon which was mostly not ripe enough and not very sweet. The chicken salad was unusual: The meat... More
