First-time visitor to Cheddars. We enjoyed the Cajun catfish dinner and an 8 oz. sirloin, each with two sides, for less than $20 plus drinks, dessert, tax and tip. Portions were more than we should have eaten, but we're traveling so a doggie bag wasn't an option. Had a 20-minute wait at the bar (Friday night), and carried the drinks... More

I loved Cheddars but now the portions are getting smaller. The steak and chicken tenders was the bomb. But now you get a 2 inch x 2inch steak about 3/4 inch thick and three chicken tenders that used to be huge is now the size of a chicken nugget. Taste was still good but going to have smaller portions lower... More

Poor service ruins the whole thing... And the restaurant is WAY too hot. Turn on the a/c dudes the prices are high enough to pay that electric bill. Waiters/esses are disassociated with their customers. It was all around me... Sorry guys you must improve!!!!

I love this place. The homemade ranch is so good! We had dijon chicken that came with a huge mound of mushrooms and it came with mashed potatoes and broccoli cheese casserole. Yum! Tiffany our server was great!

The wait was long, (it was Friday Night) but it worth it. Our waitress was awesome and the food was great. The mashed potatoes are VERY GOOD!

Been to a Cheddar's multiple times when living in Amarillo, TX and always enjoyed the entire experience but such was not the experience at this one. Had no "beef" with the appetizer and entree (cheese/hamburger queso and blackened salmon were delightful) but the total wait from placing the order to delivery was totally unacceptable. One might excuse this if it... More

Cheddars on Clinton Hwy is bad. Service has been terrible. Ordered an Hawaiian chicken sandwich and chicken was burned. Cheddars in Alcoa has been fantastic the many times I have been there!

I ate at Cheddar's on Clinton Highway, which I have been to a few times before, this past Saturday. Cheddar's is your typical American Fare Chain Restaurant (such as Chilis, Applebees, etc.). This location always seem to have a crowd, which is a sign they offer a good product. The thing that impresses me most about Cheddar's is the price.... More

Went there on a Friday night football weekend. Expected that they would be busy so didn't mind the wait. However, we requested the patio and there was only one group seated there. They still made us wait even though there were 3 or 4 open tables on the patio and no one else waiting for them. Our server was fairly... More
