“Lunch at it's Best.”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

The lunch specials are nice and I had the soup and half a sandwich was a lot of food. We started with the chips and queso and was given complementary "seasoned meat" to go with it. Yum! My husband ordered the spasagna meal, Spasagna is Spaghetti layered with cheeses and spices, baked and then topped with homemade meat or marinara sauce. Served with warm garlic bread and it is very good! Yum!

“Great prices, wonderful meal, excellent service!!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Went to Cheddar's for our first time on our recent visit to Pigeon Forge. It was wonderful!! We were really surprised by their cheap prices! The size of our meal was way more then I could eat at one meal, so half of it went back to the room with me. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful since it was our first time at Cheddar's. We are looking forward to eating at a Cheddar's in the near future. Thanks Cheddar's of Pigeon Forge for making our first time a wonderful and great experience!

“Good Food, great service”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

When we arrived, we were told it would be 16-21 minutes wait. It was 15 mins. The only issues was the time from being seated till someone acknowledged us. After that, we were taken care of well. The food was very good, great portion size and reasonably priced. I would recommend this restaurant and will eat there again.

“This Cheddar's is not recommended.”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

We love the Cheddar's food chain, but our service was awful at this particular restaurant. We decided to eat here for our Saturday night meal. After being seated, we waited for 10-15 minutes with no waiter/waitress ever showing up. A hostess finally took notice and took our drink orders. It was nearly 10 more minutes before the drinks showed up along with our waitress. She was very short at that time and quickly demanded our order. Her service gradually improved, but the overall service experience was the worst we have had in a long time. The food was good, but the service here gives Cheddar's a bad name. This location is not recommended and we will not be back.

“At least they are open late . . .”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Checked for a restaurant that would be open late for after we left the 2nd show at the Comedy Club. Not a lot of choices, but found that Cheddars was open until midnight. That is about the only good thing to say about this place. First - being that late the restaurant was not very busy yet we were seated clear in a back (out of the way) area. This area was also being used by the workers of the restaurant. Second - ordered appetizer sampler. It was brought out, set down on the edge of the table and then that person walked off - no individual plates were provided. We then went looking for a person to ask for plates and got them. Two of us had each ordered a beer to drink. We were asked if we wanted a second (we each had some remaining in the first bottle) and one of us got the second one. When the second was brought out the waiter stood at the table to get the first bottle. She told him that she was not "chugging" the last little bit in that bottle and he told her that he didn't care - she could put it in her purse and take it home with her if she wanted. Third - 2 different orders for bacon cheeseburges, one with ketchup only and mashed potatoes and gravy the other with mayonaisse only and french fries. They were brought out - one with mayonaisse only and mashed potatoes and gravy and the other with lettuce only and french fries. The person who had ordered a meal had also ordered a salad. Needless to say the meal was brought out and no salad had been served. That person advised that she no longer wanted the salad. Then when the bill was brought out, the cost of the salad was on the bill. The waiter did correct that and take that cost off. Would have been a great place to get an after show meal if the people there had acted like they really wanted to be working there and if all the food had been served hot and correctly instead of incorrect and some hot and some lukewarm. Will not plan on going back and would not recommend this.
