Cheddars gives consistent service and quality of food. Portions tend to be large so consider splitting meals. I like the variety of menu that is offered and the atmosphere of the restaraunt is pleasant.

Cheddars has delicious fried chicken. You can have it in salads or as tenders in a meal. I tried to kick it up once serving it buffalo style. It was too much. The onion rings are also terrific. They serve large portions and prices are reasonable. Whenever we overnight in Knoxville this is our dinner place. Service is always great... More

Make sure you get the honey butter croissants, they melt in your mouth. I have not had anything bad from the main entrees', soups, salads and sandwiches.

Have been there for lunch a few times. Always good food and good service. 'Jazzy' waited on us last time, great experience. If you go, ask for her. Food is consistent there and with the chain, and I've never had an issue with either. Get the ribs.

My husband and I sat in a booth in the bar area for lunch. Our waiter Daniel was excellent. I like getting the lunch portion grilled salmon. There chicken tenders are excellent here. My husband tries something different every time he eats here. We find the prices are reasonable and portions are good here.

We are travelling across America on a road trip and went to Cheddars for dinner off a whim, so glad we did ! The restaurant is beautiful, love the fans and the fish tank, the owner has good taste in decor. I missed the name of our waitress but she was great, attentive, friendly and made us feel welcome like... More
