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...

I took my ol' lady here, they don't have Cheddar's where she's from but they now have several around East TN. The food is decent and varied, but somewhat limited. What they do have is really good for a midpriced chain. I love the monte christo which is basicly a fancy turkey and cheese but oh so good. My big... More

My wife and I were on our way to Florida and stayed in Knoxville, Tennessee over night in the heart of the orange university where Tennessee celebrates so many great athletes and accomplishments. We love to sit a bar if a restaurant has one. It was a bit overly lit for a bar, but in some ways reminded us of... More

We love Cheddars. I always get the cornmeal encrusted catfish. The ambiance in good and the service above average. Alas, I gave them a mediocre rating of three stars to make a point. We got the vegetable plate an the veggies are prepared with sugar. Ugh. One reason for ordering veggies is that we have a healthy life style. Sugar... More
