“Lots of Affordable Choices!”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

This was my first visit to the Cheddar's chain and I was very impressed! The food was excellent, they had a lot to choose from, large portions at a very affordable price, the atmosphere was very nice, and the service was nearly impeccable. I ordered the Cornbreaded Catfish with fries and coleslaw. The cole slaw was excellent (it's usually very hard to find good cole slaw in a restaurant! The battered onion rings for an appetizer were terrific too!

“Great Food, Atmosphere at Fantastic Price”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

After skipping Cheddar's several times due to people having to wait outside, we eventually hit a time when we could get a table. No wonder!
We walked into a very clean and well appointed space with modern decorations, the most prominent being a large, slowly rotating rod over the ceiling waving wicker fans. More decoration than functional, to be sure. A great touch to top off a very welcoming atmosphere.
Our waitress, Andrea (?) was delightful. Always smiling, answering our questions about the menu, even laughing at our jokes... poor kid. We tipped her around 25% -- well deserved.
Then there's the menu. (http://www.cheddars.com/menus/columbia-xpcf/) I was shocked to find NOT ONE ITEM over $10 on the menu. The decorations alone warranted that. So I went ahead and ordered the Key West Chicken & Shrimp with sides of broccoli and baked potato (loaded). I almost never get shrimp -- too expensive. Almost afraid to take a taste, I took a bite and it was everything I could hope for -- wonderful! Cooked to perfection with an exquisite pineapple pico de gallo.
Our daughter moved to Columbia in August, so we'll be back to the city rather often. We don't have a Cheddar's at home, so we'll *definitely* be visiting the Columbia location whenever we're in town.
