Every time my husband and I go to a Cheddar's, we order the Chicken Tender Platter and 2 salads and share. As usual, we did the same here. We were disappointed in the quality of the chicken. It was rubbery, not the usual juicy, tender chicken tenders that we get in Texas. I would not recommend their Maui Margarita, either.... More

My family and I are traveling back home to the Atlanta area and just stopped in to eat at Cheddar's in Alcoa TN. The food was fast and delicious and the wait staff did an exceptional job. BUT, our server's name was T.J. Goins and she provided my family with possibly the fastest, friendliest and most complete service I have... More

I met my niece here for lunch. I think the service was lacking. Never refilled my water until I asked. My niece had a club and fries and she said it was good. I had the cheeseburger and fries. She didn't ask how I wanted it cooked so I was concerned it would be bloody; and it was really pink... More

We have eaten at many different Cheddar's and usually have the same thing. The food here was perfectly cooked. We had a bacon cheeseburger, chips and queso, and cheese fries. Service was a 10 star. Service can make or break it and it was excellent here. It is also an excellent value for the food you receive here.

I ate here twice during my stay in the area. The first time it was for dinner and I had salmon. It was very tasty. Service was mediocre but I was offered a soft drink refill to take with me. I liked that. The second visit was for lunch. I had a salad and a burger. Service was a little... More

Food is great. Portions are always huge, but it's the professional service that sets this Cheddar's apart from all the other chain restaurants. Well dressed and always professional waiters and waitresses are a pleasant surprise we always count on. Thank you, Cheddar's Alcoa!

We always love Cheddar's...consistent food quality with large portions...however this was the best service we've ever had! Chris was our server and he was extremely friendly and was on top of everything we would go back just to have him take care of us!

They stay busy... Why? Great food, great prices, good service, good menu variety. Grilled catfish is my favorite, and the side dishes are all good. I like the huge aquarium and the giant paddle-fan overhead... It really adds to the atmosphere. Honest... It is the best deal for really good food that you can find at a nice sit-down restaurant.

We were staying in Knoxville near the airport so thought we would give this a try. Food was good, server was good, so I would say just your average restaurant. Prices are very good. Give it a try if your in the area. I would visit again.

Thank cthom54
