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

This Cheddar's was consistent with another Cheddar's. The food was tasty, the atmosphere was friendly, and it was a very clean restaurant. The food was good and the price was reasonable. The staff was very friendly and attentive. Nice job!

Food & service both really good. Lively atmosphere. We came early for supper (4:45) & didn't have to wait for a table. Loved my veggie plate: house salad & 4 sides.

The chicken was still pink all the way through, the shrimp hadn't been deveined and was ice cold, the corn was brown and hard, and the broccoli was cold and covered in... More

Had the Hawaiian chicken salad at this place. First time I had eaten at Cheddar's. The server was very attentive and he was fun to trade jabs with. The food was good. My wife had a baked spaghetti type dish and she said it was the best she had ever tasted. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. I would... More

Recently had a family dinner at Cheddars and found the food only average. Two of us had the catfish and found it to be somewhat tasteless. The strip steak ordered by another party turned out to be to order but tough. Of the meals ordered, the hickory smoke barbecue rib dinner got the highest rating. On the positive side, the... More
