I have eaten at Cheddar's many times. Very busy place, but seated rather quickly. Nice atmosphere, service good, very friendly. Prices good. I don't think you can ask for low sodium, which I must have, so have not been happy with that. Otherwise good food. Would recommend a visit there. Right on Kingston Pike great access from interstate.

The food and service was great. Food was hot and well prepared. Server was prompt and refills were automatic.

I did not want to go but I enjoyed the food and portion size. The quality of the food was average but the prices were more then reasonable. Our server was also very attentive without being pushy.

This is my second visit to a Cheddar's, first was in West Virginia (live in North Carolina). My wife and I both ate from the lite selections. She enjoyed chicken and shrimp with salad and rice. I had Baja chicken with rice and black beans. Loved both, but I was still hungry afterwards. Next time I'll go for something "heavier",... More

I ate at this Cheddars on a busy Saturday night with my two friends and about 10 kids between all of us. We had a 20 minute wait and they squeezed us all into one big table. The server was very nice and worked with us to handle our crazy party. So he did a great job. The restaurant has... More

Went with friends after church. This is what a restaurant should be. The food was very good, the service was impeccable and reasonably priced. The chicken-pot-pie was very tasty as was the broccoli casserole. I struggle to remember a better "casual" restaurant.

Went for lunch about 1:00pm on Friday. It was crowded but I did not have to wait, seated immediately. Server came as soon as I was seated. Very, very attentive server but not overbearing, just pleasant. Food was delicious and served hot. I was able to substitute one of the vegetables and was not rushed to finish. I mentioned the...

I was working in Knoxville for a few days and decided to try a sit down restaurant near work to have a nice healthy lunch. Service was great and even though there was only one of me they seated me quickly. I'm not vegetarian, but sometimes I just want a plate of veggies, so that's what I got. While I... More

We ordered, got our food- I ask for butter and crackers for my soup- never received the crackers nor a return visit from the waiter until he took the bill. I believe he's name was Greg... older gentleman seemed he was in a hurry but he only had us and a party of six that came in after us. I've... More

Visited for lunch New Year's Day, and timed it just right...parking lot about half full when we arrived, completely full when we left. Greeters kind of stumbled around on deciding where to seat us (though it was only about half full inside), looking at the chart, looking at each other, having us stand there and look at them while they...
