Huge portions

The portions at this restaurant are very large. The food itself is good but nothing spectacular. Very nice decor and good service. This particular Cheddar's is very new, quite large with plenty of parking so we had no problem getting a table even though it was prime time. Very good value

Something is amiss in this place. I ordered soup and salad. The spoon for the soup was dirty. At least it wasn't already placed in my soup like so many places do. I asked for no dressing on the salad, but it came with dressing on it. The server came to take away my soup bowl and also removed my... More

We've dined here many times, at evening hours there can be a line, and it always seems to be BUSY !! Servers....sometimes great, sometimes just okay....most of the time, average. Atmosphere is somewhat noisy. We have had the chicken tenders, chicken fried steak, salmon, shrimp and some chicken dishes. The chicken tenders are great when they are freshly fried, although...

The shrimp and chicken is excellent, but I have had other things here. The spaghetti lasagne is very well too. But I would dare say that the shrimp is better than Red Lobster, especially now that Red Lobster is going to the pits. Great atmosphere, great location, service has always been excellent. The only downfall, Which is a good sign,... More

Went to Cheddars for dinner with the family. It took a while to get a seat, but took even longer for our food to come out. The food was good, just not the long wait.

The food was decent, the service was decent. There was not a lot of variety in the choices on the menu.

We love to go to Cheddars because the food is great and they serve good sized portions. The wait can be a little long sometimes, but its worth it. We had excellent service in a timely manner. They serve good drinks too!. my favorite dish is the buffalo chicken wrap. I eat one or two and take a couple home.... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Father's Day lunch, a day early. Our waitress was just the best. Fish tacos were sure to be a repeat. Mac and Cheese should be tried.
