Rafferty’s is a regional chain restaurant which operates locations in their home base of Bowling Green Kentucky, to locations
in Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia and Indiana. The chain is a family friendly atmosphere that offers fresh entrees,
sandwiches, burgers, steaks, chicken and salads in a variety of combinations. After opening a successful location near Cedar
Bluff, the chain opened a second location in North Knoxville on Cedar Lane. In an effort to slightly downsize under performing
locations, Rafferty’s closed the Cedar Lane location but continues to operate the Cedar Bluff area location. The Cedar Bluff
area location was previously flanked with a smoky bar and dining room that led to the non-smoking side of the restaurant. With
the change of laws, the entire restaurant is now smoke-free.
The Knoxville Dining Crew has always had generally mediocre service and food at the Cedar Bluff location. In any aspect of our
reviews, this restaurant location averages a score of “average”. It just depends on what those taste buds are after. At Rafferty’s
there is average offerings at expected prices and nothing to write home about.
