This used to be one of our favorite restaurants. We ate multiple things on the menu and always loved it. But the last few times we have been, we have all ended up sick! I am not sure what has changed, but something is different about the food. It seems to be very rich tasting, so maybe it is a... More

We were running a little behind oncoming into Cookeville for our business lunch. Two members of our seven arrived earlier and let the staff know we would be needing to expedite. As soon as we sat down the staff was collecting drink orders and offered to take food orders if we were ready....eager to meet out needs. The food was... More

We went to Cheddar's on Thursday night. we were seated fast and no waiting in line. We had chicken and waffles always good every time we come. The side salad I had was good as well. The service was OK I guess. We come here 5-6 times a year and the food is always good.

Fabulous food and GREAT service. Thanks David! With 7 people on a busy Fri night, we only had to wait a few minutes. Food was quick and wonderful!

We had great service in the bar area. We stopped in for lunch. Both our waiter and the bar staff were very attentive. Will eat here again.

Had lunch here on 12-6-14. The food was very good. We had a cheeseburger and a philly cheesesteak. Both were very fresh, cooked well and done. The only bump were the chips for the queso. Some, not all, of the chips were very stale. It seemed fresh ones were mixed in with older ones. We did not say anything because... More

Fair or not, I would probably have gone 5 stars on this restaurant if they had the ability to accommodate large parties. As it is, though, they are reluctant to push tables together if you have more than 6 people. The food quality is great and it's affordable. Service tends to be quick and friendly even at busy times.

This is a fast paced place with a very consistant product--and that is saying a lot in this day and age. Unfortunately the consistency comes at a price. The chicken fried steak has some meat in it but it is mostly breading. The onion rings are the best thing on the menu. I had the honey ribs the other night... More
