I ordered the Chicken Sandwich with brown sugar bacon and the macaroni and cheese side. It was one of the best sandwiches I ever had and the side was a welcome change from french fries. Mike, our server gave us great service. We will return.

The Atmosphere is family based. there is always a line half way downthe block but definitely worth thhe wait.and you can only have two drinks by the way. (but if you ask to speak with a manager they will help you get what you need.)

Cheddars has been up for awhile but there is always a waiting line. The foo is great and even though I am a vegetarian and only get the vegetable plate, it is still great.. The onion rings are a must! They are served in a huge portion..

Wonderful service! Anything you order comes double than what you will get at other places, always have to take a box or 2 back home! Reasonably priced and great atmosphere

Everything I've had here has been excellent, particularly when you consider the prices. Last night I had 1/2 rack hickory-smoked baby-back ribs, with grilled shrimp for ~$15. These ribs really were falling off the bones. Excellent. The facility is clean and the staff is friendly.

It looked like from the outside the place was jammed but once inside we were sat within moments and our drink order taken and food picked out! This is the ONLY place in Knoxville to get shrimp that is THIS yummy! Happy dinning!

Went there on a crowded Thursday evening and was promptly greeted by out server. Had the steak and shrimp which was cooked per our order. The steak was great and the fries were crispy. Go ahead and give them a try, you won't be disappointed.

We stopped in here for dinner. Our server (Meridith?) was great. She has only been there a month but she was on the ball. Drinks and food made it to the table quickly. They had a huge variety of food and the portions were good.

Big fan of Cheddars in Cookeville and Ashville, This location was great in the beginning but it has just went downhill. We will not be back. Last 3 times have had inconsistant service and food was not good. I don't know what is up with this location but the food is just never the same. No consistancy. Our fries were... More
