Had lunch there with friends. Great choices for the lunch menu. Each of us had something different and everything was delicious! Very nice setting and we were well taken care of.

What a great place. Stopped for dinner with friends. Only our second time at a Cheddar's. The first being near St. Louis. As it turned out we all ordered the salmon and could not stop raving about it.

The server was great and mean was good. I was in the mood for a Ribeye and my wife had fish. I like the reasonable price of a meal

We had a gift card for Cheddar and we used it up today. Chicken strips and chicken mushrooms were the choices. Hot fresh and too much to eat. Always enjoy Cheddars

On a Friday night, went up to Cedar Rapids to run some errands. Wanted some real food and didn't want fast food but didn't want to spend a long time in a restaurant. We popped in to Cheddar's and were greeted right away. Sat right...More
