My husband and I wanted sim catfish so we decided to try this restaurant. The service was good. There was a really long wait, but we went to the bar and got a sit right way. The food is really good, prices are low, service is fast. Great for families on a budget.

We went on Sunday night at 5:00. There was no wait. We had 12 in our party. They looked kind of busy but not overloaded. There we several empty booths and tables. The waitress was not very friendly but okay. After waiting an hour for our food I asked the waitress what the problem was. She said the kitchen was... More

Never been to this chain before....had heard good things. Food was average "bar food"....price was ok..but they were not that busy, service VERY slow (28 min for a Cesar salad?)and our waitress told us she didn't think the bartender knew how to make a "Captain and Coke". Really?? I might steer clear of this outlet...try them again in another city.

Chain restaurant that offers quick and easy casual dining. The food is inexpensive and always feeling. I was able to eat at the bar last night in and out in 30 minutes overall food and experience was satisfying

These comments are also relevant to TripAdvisor. On a road trip from North to South, we were enjoying taking our time and exploring new areas. Having never been to Jackson, Mississippi we were to arrive around dinner time on a Sunday evening. We were able to easily scope out a hotel on TripAdvisor, but to find restaurants open for dinner...

The portions here are very big. I got a quesadilla the first time I went and was not crazy about it. This time I got a chicken dish, and it was delicious!

Food is decent and affordable, but service is hit or miss. Large portions. Variety of choices for different tastes.

The only negative I can think of is the wait....which is rarely over 30 minutes. It is a great place to eat with family or friends...I have done both, and the food is great. The service is wonderful and they are always more than happy to fix any mistakes....which have happened rarely.

The service and food is always good when I dine at Cheddars. The atmosphere is exciting and we usually don't have to wait long. It's the place to go if you want the feel of a restaurant and bar.

Meal was average at best. Ribeye was dry and chewy for a medium rare. My girls like the ribs. Fried shrimp was average
