I ordered the lite side menu, Chicken and shrimp, the salad that came with it was great, however, the chicken was so over tenderized that is was actually salty. I also ordered a Long Island Iced tea, nothing special there in fact it tasted like sour mix and did not resemble what the drink should have tasted (my fault I... More

This is a step above the usual sports bar/restaurant. The prices are very good and the portions are large. Service was excellent.

A brisk walk from Comfort Inn gave us our exercise. We were greeted by friendly faces and was seated immediately. The food (several dishes) we chose was excellent. Our waitress was great. When we come back to Newport News, we will be eating at Cheddars.

Stayed at the Comfort Inn across the way from Cheddars and needed a place to chow down so we decided to try it. I must say, it was quite packed but the wait wasn't long at all.. maybe 10 minutes even though the server said it would be about 20-25 minutes. Our server, think her name was Tiffany, was THE...

Great food for a great price. Their texas margarita and painkiller drinks are really good and really cheap, maybe $4-$5. The chicken tenders are really good, but during my most recent visit I had the grilled salmon and that was amazing too. The outside patio is great on warm nights !

Our first time, we went for lunch on a Monday. We were seated immediately, met our waitress & had our drinks with 3 minutes! We started with the Wisconsin chees bites which were delicious! Lightly battered & not overly salty like most, marinara sauce was very flavorful & fresh tasting. I had the Monte Cristo which was absolutely divine! The... More

Get the rib eye steak and baked potato...better than any big name steak house. Service is great and plenty quick. My main course came out probably 10 minutes after I got my salad. I will go back to Cheddars!

It started off great but went south from there. We had a group of 8 so we expected a wait.To our surprise our 50 minute wait only lasted 20 minutes. Had a great table on the patio. Our server was great and very attentive to our needs. BUT then things took a downward spiral. They were out of alot of... More

We are so in love with cheddars! We had never tried it so once we did we were hooked! Everything is a great price and they have yet to let us down. We moved so we no longer have a location. But we miss it and would recommend fully to go there. If there is a problem the managers and... More
