We were just passing through Paducah on a long road trip and often rely on reviews to find a suitable place to eat. On this particular day it had been a long trip and we wanted to just pick up something and take it back to our nearby hotel. The existing reviews suggested this was a good option and indeed... More

We stopped here on our drive from Springfield to Nashville. It's easy to get to from the interstate and has a good sized parking lot. We were promptly seated and greeted by a young woman with a great southern accent! Both of us ordered the special for that day which was a chicken wrap with lettuce, sour cream, crispy potato...

We found Rafferty's on TripAdvisor with good reviews. It was very close to our hotel. We were seated immediately and the host talked to us about football. Unfortunately, the only prime rib they had left was medium and medium well and my friend eats his rare. So he ordered ribs with a salad and garlic mashed potatoes. I had a... More

Two couples. Sandwiches were tasty, 2 orders of prime rib were very tough, dinner salads were excellent with the honey mustard/hot bacon oil. Service very attentive.

We were there on a Friday night and while we didn't have to wait for a table it was busy and the staff were running around. We ordered chips and queso for an appetizer which came out nice and warm but about 3 minutes later our entrees arrived. Not good timing - either you let your dinner get cold while... More

We travel to florida each winter and stop in Paducah because we like the holiday inn express and this restaurant. Good food and service and a short walk from the hotel.

Stopped for dinner when traveling thru the area. We both had filet which was very good. Salad was large and the wine prices were very reasonable. Service was good. Would eat here again if in the area.
