Cheddar's has reliably good food for great prices. The chicken tender platter is a family favorite. I love both the miso salmon and the tilapia dish. I've never been disappointed with a meal or the service.

Usually fast service, best to go a little early. Can be a long wait later in the evening. Cheese dip and club sandwich is always a good choice.

Cheddars is the most friendly, clean, service oriented restaurant around. We love the ribs, but all their food is excellent. The prices are below most other restaurants and the wait time is very short even tho they are always packed. It has become our very favorite restaurant.

My son couldn't decide between the chicken strips and a grilled chicken/shrimp combo so we got the trio appetizer plater. They potato skins were they best I have ever tasted and they were nicely sized. The chicken strips are always great. My husband enjoyed the fried cheese balls. I had the 6 oz sirloin with broccoli and a side salad.... More

The cafe offers a wide selection of menu items. Once seated, the service is prompt and the food is very good. Because Cheddar's is so popular the wait to be seated is often extended. They do not take reservations.

This place had good food, but not great. I am not sure why people wait in line to eat here. Food was warm prices are alright. Will not be waiting in line 45 min again though.

We wanted for nothing... our server was perfect. I had the steak and 1/2 rib dinner. It was very good and a generous portion. Even though the traffic was completely backed up in front of the restaurant, we found a parking spot in their lot and got in and seated within 5 or 10 minutes.

Thank Mark_Howe
