Appetizer could have been a meal. We were seated quickly. The rock waterfall was beautiful. It was also a pokestop (Pokémon GO).

Can't go wrong with this restaurant. Great food at reasonable prices. My favorite is the salmon with bourbon glaze. Then, there's the favorite broccoli casserole.

We stopped for dinner. We have never been or heard of Cheddar's. We started with a fruit tea. The peach tea was yummy. We highly recommend the onion rings. The beading was light with just the right amount of crunch. I had the chicken pot pie and my friend had a burger. Both were delicious.

We decided to go there at the last minute and have eaten there numerous times. The service tonight was great-very sweet young man, very friendly. The food was hot, delicious, and as we ordered it, and served in a timely manner.

After spending a week in Tennessee for a family reunion we usually end wind down our stay with a trip to our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately we learned that place had closed up. My mother was very disappointed because that's where she always got her favorite catfish. After asking some family, they all seemed to suggest Cheddars so that's where we... More
