Cheddar's is my new favorite restaurant. The steak melts in your mouth. The ribs literally fall off the bone when the fork touches them. This place is amazing.

Best fresh food in town! Great selection, served quickly by competent, pleasant wait staff. Often crowded, but once you're seated, the service is splendid. Prices are excellent for the quality and quantity. Go often!!

We eat there quite often and last night was perfect. We were in a hurry because of an early starting ballgame. We didn't want "fast food" and chose Cheddar's among many options close by. It was the perfect choice...shrimp appetizers, and a crispy chicken salad. Our server brought us Iced Tea to go. Will be back Wednesday.

this place always provides consistent food and service. a large restaurant and crowds to boot. portions are large, a good value. cheddars also has a good variety on its menu, probably the most popular chain restaurant in cookeville.

We started out with the Frozen Peach Bellini. It has Rum, Peachtree Schnapps & Champagne in it with a slice of orange. I would have thought it would have came with a slice of peach instead... But it was still delicious! We ordered the Triple Treat Sampler for the appetizer. It comes with nachos & two more choices. We choose... More

Cheddars always comes through. As we travel it is one of the places we look for when it is approaching meal time. The onion rings are made from scratch and are always delicious. We have found their other menu items to be consistent from location to location. Cheddars has yet to disappoint us!
