Nine of us. Chips and salsa appetizers. Then a variety of entrees. I had the grilled chicken pecan salad. Delicious. Brian was our waiter and kept our beverage glasses refilled during the lunch. Excellent!

The staff was friendly and the food was really good. The portion sizes were big enough for two people and the price was great.

Seems like the larger the party you're in, the worse the service at this Cheddar's. This time was a Friday night 7:30 before Kentucky played Northern Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament.

Went here for Sunday lunch with the family. The waiter, Craig, was great. I had not been here in a while and was pleasantly surprised to see the prices were lower than I expected. I will not wait so long to visit again.
