This is a great chain restaurant that has many unique items on the menu, ranging from hamburgers to salmon. Great for those who want lots of choices and for kids. Avoid sitting in the bar area because it is often quite loud. Food quality is excellent, but service can be spotty.

We went to Cheddars for dinner. The waitress was friendly, accommodating and attentive. My wife's order was not correct but the waitress didn't notice. The food quality is excellent and the prices are very fair. We'd go there again.

Love the red beans & rice! Other veggies were good too, as well as the salad & potato soup. My husband had the salmon which was too dry, but everything else we enjoyed. Server was very polite!

This Cheddars, like others we’ve visited, is very popular and usually has a wait list. We must have gotten there at just the right time on this visit, because we were shown to our table right away. Our food was a little slow coming, but our waitress came several times to let us know she was checking on it. We... More

Decent drinks and excellent food. The price is right and the service was good. It's a pretty busy place during lunch and dinner so go early or go late. The queso and chips are so good. I would lick the queso bowl if it was sociablly acceptable.
