The food is always delicious. The spinach dip is always an item I order no matter what and I've been known to get an order to go. We recently tried the onion rings and now we have another must order item! They are wonderful! The steak is great as is the dijon chicken. This restaurant is always... read more

Went with a party of 7. The poor waitress tried but the excuse we kept getting was the computer just had to be rebooted. After 45 minutes of waiting for food, we asked and were told the computer had been down and that the food was being made. A couple of salads came out. Food finally came after about an... More

Waitress was very attentive without being intrusive. Refilled my soda without me having to ask which is a plus to me. Food was correct temperature and came in a decent time frame. Good value for the money.

I have never eaten at this restaurant where they have not messed up my order,under or over cook my food, or I had to send someone to find my server. However, if you're looking for somewhere to eat and you're tired of everything else in town cheddars is the place to go.

GREAT FOOD! GREAT ATMOSPHERE! GREAT PRICE! Actually... AMAZING PRICE! Sometimes there's a really, REALLY long wait, just depends on if you get there during rush hour or not. Had some spotty issues with service before, but will 100% go back for sure!

The waitress didn't follow instruction when ask to bring my drink after my food was served. She left it at the bar until it became watery and brought it to me. All of the food we ordered was cold after after waiting for an hour.

I had heard of the Cheddars chain before. We were in Brandon during lunchtime and decided to eat there. Well what a mistake THAT was! The place just felt dirty. The floors going back to the restrooms were sticky under my feet and the restroom itself needed cleaning. There were paper towels all over the floor (and this was during... More

Visiting Brandon Florida with friend. All I heard was how great Cheddar's was. It wasn't good from the start, had to wait for over an hour to be seated. Actually several people in our party didn't want to wait but I insisted because of all the hype I heard about this place. So we waited. finally we were called and... More

Nothing outstanding here folks, just a good place to eat and reasonably priced. Portions are quite large but the plusses here are the inviting atmosphere, a clean restaurant and a fairly diverse menu making this an above average place to dine. The menu does feature some unusual items such as Shepherd's Pie and all in all I would say that... More

We had a group of 20 and sat in a room on the other side of the dining room. The service was good, but we kept getting promises that they would turn down the air-conditioning. It was down temporarily but one couple went to the car to get blankets because they were so cold. The food was good but would... More
