“Nice Lunch at Cheddars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Cheddars is convenient to Patrick Henry Mall, a great stop for lunch. We had cajun catfish and grilled chicken pecan salad. Both were well prepared and served in a timely manner. The restauarant was busy, but not crowded. Nice selection on menu.

“A long wait, poor service and bad food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

When we arrived, we were told that it would be a 25-30 min wait. It ended up being closer to 45-50 mins. Our waitress informed us right away that she was new. It took a very long time to get our food and when we finally did get it, it was lukewarm at best. We had a beef roast with mashed potatoes and vegetables and there was very little meat. The mashed potatoes were kind of runny and the gravy was thin also. My husband ordered a cookie with ice cream for dessert and specifically requested no nuts on it. After waiting about 15 mins for it to come, it had nuts on it. We didn't have the patience to wait for a new one, so he scraped the nuts off. This was our first and probably last experience at a Cheddars.

“Not as impressed as others”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Well I have been to Cheddars in other areas and liked it very much. Maybe it was because this was late lunch, not sure but was not nearly as impressed. First when we walked in two of the hostesses were on cell phones. Then they told us there would be 10 minute wait. Ok, but I can see 20 open tables, obviously not enough staff working. The service was average, as was the food...there are alot of other options in that area, I would try them.

“Great value and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

I was very happy with the quantity and quality of food but most surprised at the very reasonable prices. The full rack of baby back ribs for $14 was a great deal.
