I was up in Hattiesburg for dinner with Michelle’s family and we all went out to Cheddar’s Casual Cafe. It is a chain version of a neighborhood restaurant and the food was good and filling and the prices quite reasonable.
We started with the Honey Butter Croissants. These ought to come with a warning about addiction – sweet, flaky, buttery.
Michelle had the Sweet Heat Chicken and Shrimp. The sweet chili sauce was quite good.
I had the ribeye with loaded potato and brocolli cheese casserole. Meat was cooked a nice medium rare with a nice sear on the outside. The casserole was a little congealed but the flavor was good and the potato was quite satisfying.
We ended with the Hot Fudge Sundae Cake – big enough to serve four with two scoops of icecream and both hot fudge and caramel sauce drizzled over the top.
As you can see by the remains of the plate, we liked it. We really, really liked it.
The service was a bit rushed but it was a Saturday during holiday season so I’m cutting her a lot of slack – that and she was dealing with a table of 11 that included two kids under 6. We all had a good meal and conversation and didn’t feel rushed or pressured.
