Got the jalapeños cheeseburger with bacon on potatoe bread it was PERFECT! The waiter was great, attentive to what we needed even with it being so busy.

Moved our son into his TTU apartment and then decided to hit the strip for dinner. Thought we'd go to Applebee's since we had coupons-but it was closed down. We decided on Cheddar's instead and it turned out to be an excellent choice. The restaurant was clean, looked brand new and had neat features like a waterfall outside, big fish... More

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.

This is a nice sit down restaurant and has a great ambiance. The food value and the servings are some of the best in Cookeville. They are very liberal with their portions and the Chicken Tenders are of this world.

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

From the time we arrived at the front door, the service was awesome! It was busy on a Friday evening and hostess got us seated and waitress Ashley took our drink order within minutes. She was excellent throughout the meal. Wife got steak and chicken tenders, daughter got chicken and shrimp salad, and I got ribs and fried shrimp. All... More

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.
