Had the potato soup which was very good. Had the meatballs and they were fantastic. Had the chicken strips and they were the best I ever had. Capped it off with the pain killer as a drink, it was perfect. The prices were very good. This is a great place to go. It is the first one in Michigan but... More

If you like big portions, good home cooked meals and cheap this is the place to go! We got the queso, monte cristo, buffalo wrap, a kids meal and 2 drinks all for under $30! Tasted so good and we have plenty left over for dinner tonight! Service was good too!

There was a huge waterwheel always in movement inside. I never visited after the fire years ago and I don't know if it was replaced. I hope so - as odd as it seemed, it was a pretty unique thing to have inside the restaurant. I used to dine here frequently, as I had many friends back then who were... More

I really want to love this place, but the consistently disappointing service takes away from my overall review. Whether it's forgetting to put in the order for a side (happened all three times I've visited), bringing wine glasses with crystal clear lipstick prints and then bringing them back as foamy wine from being dumped into a new glass, to switching...

I was in town for training last week and heard about Cheddar's. I was told don't go for lunch it takes too long, and it can be crowded often, but the food is amazing. After hearing that information I knew I had to try it. I visited Cheddar's on Tuesday for dinner and quickly developed my own perspective. The food... More

I've been here many times over the years and my favorite menu items are the chicken Caesar pasta salad and the Cookie Monster dessert. The croissant rolls are also delicious (one comes with the salad). It's just that every time I come here there is some kind of issue with the service. Whether it's a long wait to be greeted,...

Ate here recently with family and everything was wonderful. The waitress was the best! We ordered the amazing onion rings, as an appetizer. My husband had the barbecued bacon burger, our daughter had Chicken Alfredo, her guest had the country fried chicken with homemade mashed potatoes & gravy, and green beans (he said it was the best)! I had a... More

We've been here a couple of times as a family. Although there are serious limitations for vegetarian eaters, what they do have is good -- side orders and baked lasagne. This is the type of place our family will continue to visit a couple times/year

Where to begin? The service was impeccable! The honey buttered croissants? Wow! I ordered country fried chicken and it was superb, homemade gravy and mashed potatoes with green beans! The wife got homemade chicken tenders and fried shrimp and it too was amazing. The kids tried the burgers, pasta, and fish and each one was amazing! The restaurant was busy... More
