You can definitely get a nice meal at Cheddar's. My only complaint is that it's so busy sometimes and you have to wait a while. The food is very good for a chain restaurant. Decor is very nice, they have plenty of comfortable booths available. On this occasion our croissants were under-cooked/raw and tiny - first time that's ever happened,... More

A restaurant for every taste and if you have a large group/family and are on a budget, this place is for you! Meals were inexpensive and decent, just for me, bland and uninspiring. There was nothing wrong with the food, but you won't leave saying that was the best (fill in the blank) I've ever had.

Food was good, especially the onion rings. Service was friendly although it could have been slightly quicker. Price was reasonable.

This was my families favorite place to eat in Brandon. Will not go back again. Dirty glasses for the whole table no just mine. Hair in my salad and the entries where blah. The onion rings are the only thing that still tasted great. Service was not what we expected and when I asked to talk to the Manager no... More

Been to 6 or 7 locations around the country and I've not been disappointed yet. They have the best chicken fingers around. The Monte Cristo is very good. The ultimate lunch combo for 7 or 8 $ is a great bargain, especially since I love the loaded baked potato soup. The grilled chicken salad is excellent. I used a gift... More

We go here often, great prices, nice atmosphere and always great service. Oh and the drinks are delish and they have great specials! The place is always packed, which I see as a good sign...people keep coming back for a reason ;)

No reservations or call ahead accepted, but our waiting time on a Friday night was less than 30 minutes. The atmosphere was good, I have been to this restaurant many times and I have to say that the experience has been great every time. The portions are big, and the hand made food it is some of the best. The... More

The food was AWFUL!!! My meal, Key West chicken and shrimp with broccoli casserole and loaded baked potato, tasted like a bad frozen dinner. As soon as we left the restaurant I had to go home and couldn't be too far away from the bathroom... Ruined my birthday!!!

Appetizers were good, entrees were horrible. It tasted old and it was over way cooked - burned & tough. Indigestion would be an understatement. Never coming back.
