Good food - great value

First time I tried this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised given that it's a chain restaurant. Good variety of food with different, flavorful options to pick from. Most surprising was the very reasonable prices. This location has a great bar and bar area as well.

We spent the night in Bristol, as we often do on our way home from Nashville, Tenn. We wanted to try a new restaurant and Cheddars looked inviting. It was a problem from the word go. Ordered a Gin Martini on the rocks and received a Vodka Martini straight-up in a regular Martini glass. When I pointed that out, she... More

We were at this Cheddars on prom night and a Friday so it was busy. However, we did arrive early enough to not have to wait to be seated (6 pm). Our table was sticky and when the glass of water was placed on the table the moisture showed a film of something on the table. Our server has two... More

When we were staying in Pigeon Forge a few months back, a local recommended Cheddars as his favorite place to eat. However, we didn't make it, but remembered the name when we were passing through Bristol this week. Oh My Gosh! We could not believe how good the food was, plus this place is really classy inside and out. The... More

Excellent - had the grilled fish tacos - great lunch item and very affordable! This location (at lunchtime) is always busy but able to seat you promptly.

I would compare Cheddar's to Applebee’s. The price is fairly comparable. The choices are significantly larger. I had a lunch portion of Salmon. The flavors were just short of exceptional. The salmon was overcooked which took away from some of the enjoyment. I had red beans and rice as one of my sides. It seemed to me that the dish... More

If you've ever been to a Cheddar's, then you won't be surprised in any way by this location: portions are large, food is good, prices are reasonable, and service is slow. We have never been for lunch or dinner, packed or dead, when the service wasn't remarkably slow, and have to assume it is the kitchen and not the servers!... More

Living in the Bristol area, Cheddar's has always been one of our go to places. Food is good, plentiful, and very reasonable. Husband and I had dinner there earlier in the week and again had no complaints with the food. But the experience was just not enjoyable. We were seated in the very back of the restaurant near a large... More

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants at Exit 7 in Bristol Virginia. We eat there often. It is always clean and the food has always been good. We have always had nice wait staff.
