Cheddar's has always been a good place to take family for a great meal. You always gt your money's worth as the portions are bountiful. I especially love the dried catfish dinner with coleslaw!

Had lunch yesterday (12/22) at Cheddars. Promptly seated. Restaurant is quite loud. Seating is booths or tables. Nice decor. Good service.

There is always a line when I come to this restaurant and it is definitely worth the wait; the chicken tenders, fried shrimp, veggie plate are my favorite entrees; if you get the salad ask for the honey buttered croissant; it is so delicious. I don't normally order a dessert at a restaurant; but I always save room for the... More

I love the food here, and if there is a rude waiter/waitress there, I have not had them serve me. Keep it up Cheddars, thumbs up all the way

I like Cheddars. I particularly like ther crescent rolls. The food is ok. Their rib are good just not served hot enough for me. The restaurant is usually packed most evenings.
