Cheddar's is a place to go for good food at a reasonable price. Some don't find it special enough, but I find it to be a place that provides quality food at a reasonable price. It is a family dining place. It is usually packed out, and at peep times, a 10 to 25 minute wait. It has been a... More

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.
