Hoping to add a new favorite to our yearly (if not more often) trip to Pigeon Forge, decided to give Cheddars a try. We were met at the hostess stand by a completely unhelpful, unprofessional "manager", who informed us "they were not set up for parties of 8 or more and there were only 2 tables to manage that number". In Pigeon Forge, Tennessee the capital of family vacations? Seriously. After agreeing to wait, after approximately 1 1/2 hours we returned to the hostess stand and once again this "manager" told us it would probably be at least 45 more minutes. Parties of 4, 5, 6 were being called right and left and it reminded us of a scene out of the movie "Summer Rental". The rude, confrontational "manager" initials SP said we "disrespected her" by even questioning her about this. Left, will NEVER repeat NEVER even attempt to dine there. Too bad for them as a party of 8 with at least an 18% gratuity added can add up if other large family/friend groups are treated likewise.
