I guess I am really lucky. I have been to Cheddar's in Beaumont 3 times. My first trip I didn't like the food but the service was good. My second trip was great. I got the Buffalo Chicken Wrapper which fed myself 3 times my brother and sister once. It was alot of food. I have never had to wait at all to be seated but my last trip wasn't that great. We were seated right away even though there were alot of people waiting. It took like 2 hours all together. Our waiter seemed really stressed and I can see why from the other comments. I am glad that I didn't complain... for the manager's sake. I'm not really someone you want to have a confrontation with... I would have knocker her @#% to the floor if she got in my face.

As far as employment, it does suck.

I used to be a QA among many things and on Father's Day at 8 AM we had a meeting where we were told, as Allen P. said, that Cheddars was the best in the country! We were the best! We were the reason it was the best!

... and then that the QA's pay was being reduced to a flat $8.25 an hour instead of the $13+ we had been making.

i worked at cheddars for well 4 paychecks worth. the managers are mostly owners and do NOT know how to run a resturaunt whatsoever. all they do is complain, no positive feedback. when you hand them applications, they say tell them im busy when they are not. or im not dealing with that right now. people have gotten fired for the most ridiculous reasons as such; a friends car got hit in the parking lot and he called the cops, then was fired on the spot....for eating a cruiton because you are not allowed to eat whatsoever, even a granola bar in the bathroom which i got in trouble for when they are very aware that i am hypoglycemic... no wonder there are so many cheddars brand shirts at goodwill these days....literally. talk about managers cussing you out and nevvvvvvver telling you youre doing a good job, even when a guest says it.

for the others, then entire time i worked there there has NEVER (I CANT STRESS THIS ENOUGH) an 1 1/2 - 2 hour wait. if you are willing to put your name on the list, be willing to wait. especially if you have a group. i agree there should be more seating for people on a wait and they should put the tables on the balcony for that reason again, not as seating unless requested. and another fact, they cant help they are on a wait. obviously it is worth it if so many, including you are doing it. ps if you dont come in with the intentions of tipping, ur an ass lol. this is the waiters livelihood. mothers, fathers, mothers and fathers to be are working their asses off, getting yelled at for forgetting a salad when they have 4 tables that need something all at once. if you cant afford to eat plus a tip, dont go. if they think you wont tip, they wont waste their time,,,trust me ive been a waiter for years. YOU DO REALIZE THEY MAKE 2.13 AN HOUR....TIP OUT A PERCENTAGE OF YOUR FOOD YOU ATE, YOUR DRINKS YOU DRANK, AND THE HOST STAND THAT SAT YOU.

cheddars has an amazing oppurtunity to make more money than they do. but working there is terrible. SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE MANAGEMENT

PROS OF EMPLOYMENT: host: you get tip out but it doesnt matter, it comes out to equal min wage....set schedule even though its not stuck to
CONS: riticule, if you dont spend every second of your life there, you get nothing good out of it. its allllll about sceniority.

I HATED WORKING THERE, BUT LOVED EVERYONE THAT DID, MINUS THE MANAGEMENT

thanks

I, too, used to be employed by Cheddar's Restaurant. I have to disagree with the 2 former employee's comments. The "owner's sister and brother" run a very tight ship and hold their employee's responsible for....first and foremost, TAKING CARE OF EVERY GUEST, AND following policies and procedures. I have worked at several restaurants and Cheddar's kitchen and FOH is the cleanest that I have ever seen, hands down! The food and portions are awesome, and the prices are unbeatable. The "owner's" are a great family to work for and they have bent over backwards to help me. Thank you, E.B.

I also had a very bad time at Cheddars and I emailed a review and It was not put on the review site nor did I get any response. Last night we ate at Cheddars and had great food and a great server, her name was Sabal. I think our problem can be solved by paying our waiters minimum wages, and the tip would be a bonus. And lets dont for get the management, they need to remember we all need a job why cant we all get a long do our jobs done for the day and go home feeling good about the day . Thats what it should be about.

The last two reviews are from disgruntled employees . This Cheddar's is #1 in the nation in sales for a reason. they hold people accountable for doing a good job.

I used to work at the cheddars in beaumont. The bad service can be attributed to servers being in a bad mood after being screamed at by the tactless owner and his sister. They are the most pathetic pessimistic pair I have ever seen. They spend all of their energy looking for things to gripe about. They complain about customers. They make inappropriate comments. They refuse to see customers who are having a problem. They have absolutely no people skills at all. The reason it takes so long to be seated and to get your food is because servers wait in line FOREVER at the ridiculously slow computers. Out of all the restaraunts I have worked at their computer system is the worst and they refuse to fix it because they think it only affects servers tips. I quit because I was tired of working for people with no manageral skills. I would not recommend eating at this restaurant.

I used to work at Cheddars, and while I loved the food and the money was great, the management and ownership was horrible. There are certain people that have taken over recently and managed to run the restaraunt into the ground and they have been given full reign. The owner is a condescending prick who micromanages, his sister (a manager) thinks she is in high school and gangs up with 19 year old girls on certain people to try to find reasons to fire them. The wait staff is treated poorly as well as bartenders hosts and to go people. They refuse to acknowledge their mistakes and rectify them with customers. They have managed to fire or demote every decent manager waiter or bartender for no real reason. If you put it a two weeks notice, they will try to find a way to fire you before you can complete it. They make no attempt to hide favoritism among the staff. Sexual harrassment is prevalent by some of the night cooks. The entire experience has made me hate food service. General low class ownership.

My wife was part of a group that brought about 12 special needs kids (autistic, mental retardation, etc.) to the Cheddars restaurant in Beaumont, Texas. She witnessed some of the wait staff mimicking the kids, making noises and motions as if they were retarded, and laughing about it. The service was poor, the food came at different times, it was a bad experience altogether. Johnny Carino's and Joe's Crab Shack are only a few feet further down the road, and the food's better.

The managers at Cheddars are not management material. One of the owner's sister has a very bad attitude and is not professional. She has no management, leadership, customer service skills and certainly not aware of cultural diversity and how to treat customers. I had the most horrible dining experience at this Cheddars this past weekend. I love Cheddars but after this past weekend I don't think I can say the same. This manager used profanity and shouted at customers and never apologized. Cheddars need to remove her from her position before she causes them to lose customers and eventually enter a law suit with her lack of management skills.

I went to Cheddars at the HIGHLANDS, DALLES PIKE,NEAR WHEELING WV. Ive gone EVERYDAY since they opened over 3 weeks ago. Food is ALWAYS good, but i've seen a lot of mistakes in the past 2 weeks. With my order, i also ordered onion rings, When the food came, the fries AND onion rings were COLD,, After tracking the waitress down she put in another order of onion rings,, afer 20 minutes, i knew what was going to happen, they were cold also, One day i ordered the grilled chicken sandwich + fries,, after the order came, the waitress forgot to give me some silverwear to eat with. I waited a few minutes,when she didnt come back, i told 2 other servers that i didnt get any silverewear, and could they please get me some. They said sure,, never happened, i waited 8 minutes after my food got there, to finally get some silverwear.. Naturally the food was COLD. Guess what? It happened AGAIN, Thursday, sept .6.. NO SILVERWEAR AGAIN,, I told the manager about it,, guess what,? I never even got a IM SORRY ,, he didnt apologise, could have cared less. When I DID get silverwear, it had food on them, wasnt washed right, happened twice, happened again today, sunday 9/9,,, its a shame service is so bad, the food is great..but after awhile, it kinda puts a sour taste in your mouth about the service. I heard a lot of horror stories about the service, not the food. Three times they got my order wrong..Seems everyday i go there, i KNOW something will be wrong, and it usually is.. I wrote corporate about this, 5 days ago,, They never got back with me,,, figures.. all i can say is,,, the food is really good, but service is usually bad.. Sorry to bad mouth such a nice restaurant, its the service that will kill that place, not the food. Today i waited 1 hr, 44 minutes from when walked in till i got my food.When you wait that long, it would be nice to have good service and CLEAN silverwear, when you can get the silverwear. Wht they need is MORE servers and LESS tables to wait on,and 2 more cooks.., The servers are running around like wild men,,Bottomline, i blame management for the service, because the servers have to much to handle. I feel kinda bad about writing this, it is such a nice place, but when managment didnt seem to care about what i told him, theres something wrong.. Thanks,,,,,,,,,,

The food is great, if you can wait up to two hours to be seated, and, if you have a waiter who is not so overworked and short tempered. People were turned away in droves, which goes to say they need a restaurant twice the size it is. it is a shame a place with such good food has people wait so long. I would gladly pay 50 dollars up front to get a reservation ahead of time.Our family will not be going back there. We would like to, but it turns into a disaster, people are so tired of the wait.

PROS: Great food, nice acquarium.
CONS: One to two hour wait, not enough places to sit while you wait, and overwork

Cheddar's is one of my favorite places to eat. Apparently, a lot of people feel the same way. The wait time for a table on a busy night can be very, very long. I've waiting a little over an hour on two occasions now. Once you get inside the food is good and plentiful. I usually have lunch for the next day. Sometimes I have food for both lunch and dinner the next day. There is a variety of food to pick from so everyone should be able to find something they like. Also, the kids love the aquarium they have. The waitstaff is okay. They don't check on you much probably because they're so busy all the time. If you're willing to wait and can entertain yourself while waiting, this restauant is a good choice!

I think this is my favorite place to go out to eat. You get a great amount of food for the price. I love their grilled lemon pepper chicken. It's the best around. I also love their mashed potatoes. There is usually a long wait to get in, but it's well worth the wait.

Cheddar's has a varied menu that includes something for everyone. I have never had a bad meal here. The service can be slow at times but since it is always so busy this is to be expected. There is plenty of parking; if a space cannot be found in their lot, one can be found in the next lot. If you are looking for a quiet romantice dinner this is not the place to go. The noise level can get fairly high.

.

Cheddar's is a good restaurant if you have several people who want different things. They have good variety and really large portions. It is excellent for sharing entrees and desserts. Only go if you have an unlimited amount of time to sit and wait. The wait staff does not hurry, and may go "missing" after your meal arrives. They have also changed menu items, so consistency might be an issue.

Cheddar's is GREAT! Food is cheap, quality is high, and portions are huge. Some of my favorites are the Rajun Cajun, The Freshwater Catfish, Lemon Pepper Chicken, and the Monte Cristo. I will say that I'm not a huge fan of catfish but this is incredible! The Monte Cristo is AWESOME! They are constantly busy, so if you are looking for a quiet place...don't go in the rush hours, go during the middle of the day like 4:00. Other than that a great place to eat.
