Tasty Food at A Reasonable Price

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.

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

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

This restaurant has the best onion rings anywhere. They are sliced thin and served around a vertical round pole. They also have some outstanding chicken tenders. I ordered just the appetizer size of tender and they were more than enough to fill me up. Plus they come with french fries. A really good bargain.

Our family loves eating at Cheddars. The menu has a wide variety of items and the servings are very generous. We especially enjoy the décor and the interesting ceiling fans. The only down side is the noise level is rather high if you are trying to have a conversation with others.

We ate during the church crowd on a Sunday afternoon. We waited about 20 minutes for a table but once we were seated, service was fast and efficient. Wait staff were working hard and were pleasant. Our entrees and salads were delicious and we had enough to take away for a second meal. We would return.
