stopped by with family on my lunch hour. I was expecting to have a long wait. After I ordered food was delivered extremely fast and I was in and out in less than an hour.

Excellent food, nice cozy atmosphere; just loved it. Although we were reluctant to take my sister's advice but was the right choice :) Chase was excellent in helping us out, smiling all the time and explaining each dish to us. Great experience!!! Thank you Chase.

The hubby and teenage boys and I were doing some antiquing in Ft. Smith and decided to stop at Cheddar's for dinner before heading back to Fayetteville. The atmosphere was great and the staff was pleasant. We arrived around 4:30 on a Saturday and was seated immediately. The only negative i can say about our experience was one of the... More

Great place to come for lunch date or an outing with family or friends. We enjoy coming for drinks and sitting at the bar. The bar tenders always do a great job. Prices are very affordable for both food and drinks.!

I've loved Cheddars in the past but consistently it's been just okay. The food is often luke warm rather than all the items good warm temperatures. Menu selection is awesome so the expectations are high and then there's the let down when the food actually arrives. This has been the case for two to three persons at the table or... More

I've been craving good BBQ for a while and tried a few places that ranked top on several websites for "the best" BBQ in Fort Smith, AR. Well...I guess these sites award BBQ joints for lukewarm, bland BBQ because I've yet to be pleased. Then comes a random stop at Cheddar's and...I cannot believe that the baby back ribs at... More

The wife and I chose Cheddars (cheddars is one of our favorite franchise restaurants) for dinner in Fort Smith Arkansas on December 14 which ended in the second bad experience in about 30 days. I probably should have already written a review on the many reasons why we like cheddars, but right now I am still stewing in my disappointment... More

A good restaurant for a chain. Food is very tasty and has very large servings. Good and efficient servers. Inexpensive place for lunch or dinner.

Met with some guys for lunch, my first time at Cheddars. I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice place, comfortable. Service was good. I ordered the Beer Battered Shrimp, which was very good. But, the really nice surprise was a "side" order. I ordered green beans, expecting the usual tasteless, bland canned green beans. These were the kind "grandma usta try... More
