The quality of food and service is inconsistent. Sometimes the food is great and other times it's not so good. We have had a few occasions when the utensils were not clean and staff did not check on us frequently. The main problem I have is they charge you for what should be part of your meal. My husband get's... More

I guess I was expecting more. I was visiting my family in Newport News, VA and they recommended it highly. Don't get me wrong, it was a nice place, the food was good and place was clean but it was food from a chain restaurant. I'm sure there are other places that are just as good. I'd go back and...

We don't go to Kingsport often but when we do we are shopping. If it's a long day we stop to eat. We enjoy Cheddars but Kingsport seems to be hit or miss. Some days it's perfect and others they can't serve anything right. One time the server didn't ring the kids food in. Another time everything was hot and... More

The title pretty much says it all. Took a party of 6 (no reservations), though busy we only had to wait about 15 minutes for a table on a Friday night. Food was very good, a good selection for your palate, and the price was very reasonable. Our waiter was a little forgetful, but all-in-all it was a good experience.

Got the buffalo wrap with extra ranch, fries and an order of chips and salsa and a house salad on the side. Everything was delicious! They have a very good salsa. It was enough to feel 2 people completely up. Our server Rich paid extremely good detail to our drinks and the amount of lemons we had in each.

I've eaten many times at this restaurant. Never had a bad meal. Service is always good too! Their bread will melt in your mouth. Salads are always good. Large orders of food. Anywhere we are we know we can count on a Cheddars being good .

I'm sure that not all Cheddars taste the same but compared to Johnson City.. Kingsport just doesn't compare! The service was great as always though and a great clean environment!

Try to avoid rating chains restaurants because they are mass produced meals that come in a frozen container. However, I actually had one of the better fish taco's here on the east coast in quite some time, could have use a little less slaw and little more fish. Service was good and prices are reasonable for the portion

Great food at a resonable price. Try their buffalo chicken wrap and fries, best deal on a meal in this city.

I and my family frequent this restaurant often...has a good family atmosphere, although sometimes a little loud, but at least ppl are talking to each other. The service is good, the food is good
