Monte Cristo

Cheddar's had a nice family atmosphere. There are not many places that have a good Monte Cristo sandwich, but Cheddar's does, so they get my vote.

It was our fist time visiting this chain - but it won't be our last. My husband had Shepards Pie - he raved about it.

Second visit, won't return. Lunch both times, Monte cristo sandwich the first time then burger with fries. First time the food was very salty, both the sandwich and the fries. I thought it might be an anomaly till the second visit. The burger and fries were both very salty, couldn't finish the burger. I am not salt phobic but this... More

We went to dinner for my birthday. The hostess was not very friendly. When our server came we ordered a glass of wine. When she returned we decided on an appetizer. A few minutes later she returned for our dinner order. We received our appetizer and 5 minutes later our dinner. One of the sides was missing from one dinner(it... More

There is a wide selection of items on the menu. The food is well-prepared and portions are generous. The prices are better than at comparable restaurants. We've always had excellent service. This restaurant is always busy, which is a sign that it's good!

Several groups of 4 or less were seated in anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes after they arrived. During our wait I walked... More

In general the food is mostly average. The couple of things that do stand out to me are the monte cristo sandwich, the raspberry preserves are good and the tortilla soup if you get it fresh. The draft beer always seems old and not as cold as it could be. Also the some of the servers seem to get upset... More
