Not bad but loud

We have visited several different Cheddar's locations around the country and this was one of the loudest locations we've ever been to. The food was still good and affordable like all the other chains and the service was a little slow but still good.

If you are happy with uninspired food at reasonable prices, this one is for you. Our last visit was pleasant, but average. I find this restaurant really loud and the staff frequently clueless or uninspired, which can be frustrating. If you want a restaurant where everybody can find something that they can order - this is for you. However, the... More

Long wait for table of 7, twice as long as they said. People kept coming in and getting seated but apparently a group of 7 is quite large and they don't have large tables, no offer for appetizers while we waited and no comp. Food was good.

This experience was defiiitely not as good as my first visit. The restaurant was loud!!! Even though the waitress was nice she seemed rushed. The food was small portions and so extremely salty!

I've only done lunch at Cheddars, but it's a nice deal! I've always had the bourbon glazed salmon...you get two sides, and it's under ten $. It's tasty, the side selection is good, and it's a nice, if a bit noisy, atmosphere. You just have to put up with frequent visits from the servers.

The best value I've had in such a nice atmosphere in a long, long time. Waitress handled a large party of five adults and two young children with caring skill. Good food and ample portions. Only had two beers on tap, but really thankful to have anything on tap. Will certainly be back with my son's family when back in... More

Have eaten here quite a few times since it opened. Really like the bbq ribs, meaty and with sweet and spicy sauce. My only complaint would be that are not smoky at all. I believe the menu states that they are smoked for hours. Cant possible be in-house smoking. Hamburgers, chicken and salmon are a few other dinners we've enjoyed.... More

Fairly new restaurant--billed as a "scratch restaurant". I take that to mean things cooked from scratch. The Chicken Fried Steak was almost all breading with a very thin piece of tough meat. In addition, it was to come with a piece of texas toast. When I asked about the texas toast, I was told it was under the meat. Who... More
