We were passing through New Years weekend. Stopped by and sat at the bar for some quick and easy food. Felt like I was more of a bother than a customer. When the food came mine was cold. Don't think we will be back when we are in Cookeville.

We four adults traveling through this city found the food to be very good. The atmosphere was a little noisy for our liking but recommend it especially for families.

The food is great and reasonably priced. It was a great experience except that two in my party ordered the Texas frozen margarita special advertised on a separate menu card on our table for $3.95. They we happy with the meal and the frozen margaritas until the bill arrived and they were charged $6.20 instead of $3.95. Upon questioning our... More

We visit the Cheddar's in Cookeville at least twice a month. This restaurant consistently provides excellent table service, quick and deliciously hot food, and incredibly reasonable prices. Today we were served by Madison and she excelled in everything you could expect from a server. Our food was excellent, our cups were always full, and all of our needs were taken... More

The food at this Cheddar's is always good. However, the service is equally horrible. I had to wait on a spoon for my soup, while the soup got cold. It still tasted good, but I didn't dare tell the server it got cold while I waited for the spoon. He was surly and didn't listen anyway. If I didn't like... More

We went here after being unable to find parking at another restaurant. It ended up being for the best. Great service and food and only a short wait.

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.
