We met family here for Sunday lunch. I had the 6 oz sirloin, the others had the chicken fried steak and the chicken alfredo. The were not busy when we arrived but soon became very busy. Two of us got refills on our drinks but the third person didn't. Our server seemed more interested in us finishing and leaving than... More

Friendly service, great ribs and shrimp, awesome bartender.. This was my 3rd visit to Cheddars (other two at different locations) and had almost given up. Totally redeemed! Bartender on staff was knowledgable as well!

Upon arriving at Cheddars my waitress walked up and asked if I wanted a Coke or a tea? The first thing that you learn when you're a waiter or waitress is to up sell alcohol that was not my issue. I got the turkey club and it was nasty the fries were cold. My fiancé ordered the Cajun pasta which... More

Every time I drive past this place, the parking lot is CRAMMED! I thought this might give an indication of what was inside, so I decided to give it a try. The service was okay, the décor okay, and the food, well, just okay. I might go back if I couldn't find anywhere else, but I am not enthusiastic about... More

It was lunch hour. We were seated quickly. How our waitress could give our selections, ordered. All food received was nice and warm. Our waitress constantly refilled our drinks. I ordered the Montechristo, a delightfully batter-dripped ham, turkey, swiss beautifully presented w/ a raspberry dip.

All my previous visits I always was served huge portions. Thus bringing home a to- go box. Not this time. It seems they have cut down their portion sizes. Still, it is a nice place, reasonably price, unbelievable staff and clean. Just bummed that my entree was left lacking.

I eat here at least once a week I like this place so much! The food is always good and consistent and the wait staff are always really nice and attentive. The menu has a lot of different options and I've never had a bad meal here. I am a Cheddar's junkie for sure!

First time at this restaurant... lunching with a friend. The Philly Cheesesteak sandwich was filled to overflowing with a delicious melange of steak, cheese, and onions on a soft but crunchy bun. Delicious. My friend was also delighted with the Monte Cristo sandwich. The restaurant was very busy with what appeared to be happy eaters. I would highly recommend this... More

The four of us all ordered something different. The onion rings are great. We also ordered Chips and salsa. The sweet tea is very good

I have been going to Cheddars all over the country from Texas, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee and Florida. The one thing you can count on is total consistency of Value, Food and Service. Simply the best casual chain restaurant chain! And that statement come from a guy that owned restaurants and has been a corporate chef for over 25 years.
