We've eaten at Cheddars ever since it opened. They have consistent quality, fried onions appetizer to die for, and we have NEVER been disappointed with a meal here. It's a large restaurant so even if you have to wait for seating, it isn't very long. For fast lunches, try the bar seating instead of the main restaurant.

The waitress brought it over and asked "how allergic are you?" Wow, I really appereciate that. I chose the grilled chicken tenders and shrimp.... More

I was amazed at the number of building materials, inside and out, that this restaurant uses. Wood shingles, stone, metal, slate, wrought iron, beveled glass, slate, brick, stucco, tin and pinewood ceilings, etc. the interior decor lends itself to choices of seating, the bar, atrium type area, booths, tables, and stools. There is a huge ceiling fan---with individual fans, lots... More

Our family ate at Cheddars in Cookeville, TN March 7th, 2015 for supper. I had the all American Chicken Sandwich. Others had monte cristo, smoke house burger, and chicken tenders and shrimp. Great food. Busy place. Well worth the wait for a table. 5 stars

Nothing to write home about and always a really Long wait to be seated. Good prices. Food just ok with smaller portions to account for lower prices. Good place for families with rowdy kids

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

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
