The potato soup and Caesar salad are excellent. A hot croissant is served with each salad and Tatum was an excellent waitress.

First visit to this location. Had the shrimp and steak. They have an unique way to butterfly the shrimp that makes it fry up nicer. The steak was great and the service was prompt. Go ahead and give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

Cheddar's is a chain and we have one in our local area, but never ate at one until we were traveling through Tennessee. We stopped on a Sunday night so I was very surprised that it was packed in the late evening. We signed in and got our vibrating notifier. We sat just a few feet from the sign-up desk.... More

Wow, what a great place. We dined there twice for dinner, both times we did have a wait, however, it was worth it. The service was wonderful and the food outstanding! Coming from an area that charges both an arm and a leg just to go to McDonalds, this was a fantastic experience with a more than reasonable cost.

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.
