Cheddar's, Wellington Fl

Cheddar's, Wellington Fl

It's been a while since we've done a review  (we don't get to go out as much since the birth of our third son), we got a chance to eat at Cheddar's located on SR-7 in Wellington, Fl.  We arrived a little after 6:30 Saturday evening and the place was packed.   Luckily they have ample parking.  We had a large party of 8, including the baby and other 2 boys, so we expected to have to wait a little while.  After checking in with the host, they told us it would be about 30 minutes or so and that there were several other large parties just ahead of us.  It ended up being about a 45 minute wait after all was said and done.  Which, when dealing with such a large party is not that uncommon.

When we first walked in, they thing we noticed is that the restaurant is dark.  The ambiance has little pockets of light but overall it's quite dim, though the large lighted fish tank that divides the Bar side from the Dinning Room side is a nice touch of color.

There isn't much to say about the service we had, it was acceptable not outstandingly great, but not bad by a long shot.  We had one issue where our original server had to leave because of an emergency and we had to get a replacement.  The transition was fairly seamless and we didn't have any problems with it.

As for the food, let's say that you really get WAY more than you pay for.  Portion sizes are large, out of the 7 people who ordered only 2 finished their meals.  Everyone else got to-go bags.  I ordered the "Baked Spasagna" which is spaghetti layered with cheese and baked with a meat sauce like a lasagna.  This is something that might be considered comfort food.  It's a large rich meal that definitely fills you up.  I would most certainly order this again.  The wifey ordered the Chicken Tender Salad, she didn't finish.  This was a large fresh salad topped with about 5 good sized chicken tenders.  The other people in our party ordered the Steak and Tender combo, the Chicken and Waffles, the Chicken Tender platter and the two older boys got the Monte Dogs, which are like corn dogs.  Everyone really enjoyed their meals and as said before the portion sizes are big.

Overall, we were very happy with our experience and we will be back.

Food: A+, Cooked well, served quickly and really I can't say enough about the portion sizes.
Service: A, even with the hiccups we didn't have any problems.
Price: A, you really get your moneys worth here
