I love Cheddar's and go out or my way to have a meal there when traveling even though I like the adventure of trying local eateries. Cheddars provides excellent selection, reasonable pricing, friendly service and a very pleasant atmosphere. The recent visit at the Cookeville location was no exception, in spite of our large group.

We went here as 2 tables of 4 (couples, but men at one table and women at the other)and were seated reasonably quick. The ladies table ordered after the men, but ended up getting their food first. The men's table waited almost 30 minutes more for their food. Supposedly, one of the items wasn't right so they made the whole... More

Friendly faces greeted us and were evident everywhere. Service was efficient, friendly. Food well prepared, delivered rapidly and hot. A great meal, above and beyond what happens in many chain places.

Great place to eat. Love sitting in the bar area and eating there. Service is quick and food quality is good. Portions are large and value for what you pay is excellent.

Key west chicken and shrimp!! I think I could eat this everyday. I get it with green beans, carrots, and salad which are all fresh and fabulous. One of my favorite meals!

Tired of the same old stuff? Cheddars has different food, good prices, great service and atmosphere. Try the Chicken Caesar pasta salad or mango salsa tilapia! As locals, we love this place!

Their food is good and their portions large. Almost always we have to take some home. The prices are fair for the amount of food you get.

Very nice for a chain restaurant. Less expensive and nicer than other restaurants in its class. Large portions of tasty food, clean with good service. The tilapia with shrimp on top was excellent

I'm no foodie but I detest cardboard food. This Cheddar's was right by my Hotel and my wife and mother-in-law (she's a great one so think good thoughts) wanted to come here. Too tired to resist I conceded fast. I was very pleased by the service and the food. Our waitress was friendly (but not too friendly) and a second... More

Everything I have had at Cheddar's has been excellent. If you like onion rings and there are more than two of your group to eat them, be sure to order. They do no advertising other than word of mouth and spend the money saved on food quality and portions. They are also famous for their loaded baked potato soup.
