I am mourning the passing of the Asian Salad. Tried the Hawaiian today instead. It just does not come close! Service and seating could not have been better. We had outdoor seating - the weather was lovely.

Stopped on the way from Nashville to Smokey Mountains. We were seated immediately, great service and good food. Love their veggie meal. Just what we were looking for. We were back on the road in no time.

My family from Cookeville recommended this place soooo many times. This time I decided to try it since it was right across the street from my hotel. The cocktails were huge and unique the food was delicious and the staff was wonderful. I'll be coming back here next family trip.

While visiting in Cookeville, TN decided after a long day that we needed some comfort food. We said a good burger that is not fast food would be great. Cheddar's was the answer. We both had a mushroom swiss that was excellent.

Very good food. Very busy restaurant. Not good service probably due to how busy they were. Good to try or for takeout

Cheddar's was a fairly new eating experience for us as we don't have one near us in Calif. We had only eaten at one once in North Carolina. We like their menu and quality of food. The gluten free options are somewhat limited but I was able to find a few choices.
