2nd and last time to order chicken alfredo, yucky and very little cheese. So dry it could choke a horse, small portion of chicken.

If you like Caesar salads, you'll love Cheddar's in Cookeville. It is very clean with good service at the bar and in the dining room!

Decided to try Cheddar's for the first time after passing by several times and seeing it was always busy. On a Friday evening there was only about a 5 minute wait.

Visited on a busy Friday night but after we were seated service was fast and friendly. The grilled fish was delicious - seasoned just right and not over cooked.

The food seems to be comfort food. Even though they state the food is made from scratch, the taste was quite bland, and actually did not taste as fresh. However, portion sizes a very generous. The servers are so busy going back and forth there is no time for a nice back and forth that should happen in the beginning... More

We just got a new Cheddar's at home that we have not been to yet. Family recommended Cheddar's for our larger party of family and they were able to accommodate easily. The apple pie was delicious and enjoyed by young and old.

Excellent service ! I should have got dessert now that that I think about it. I recommend the buffalo tenders for an appetizer. Madison was a very good server!
