Chattanooga's first Cheddar's restaurant will open Monday at 11 a.m.

The upscale casual American restaurant is the chain's 40th restaurant and was built from the ground up at 2014 Gunbarrel Road, across from the Hamilton Place Mall.

Cheddar's serves everything from steaks to pasta to salads, with prices averaging around $10 per entree. The 8,600-square-foot restaurant can seat 355 diners and includes a patio, 400-gallon freshwater aquarium and double-sided flaming waterfall.

Greer Companies, a Lexington, Ky., developer, owns and operates the restaurant, and has hired about 200 people.

"We were told by a long time ago we were one of the most requested restaurants in Chattanooga," said president Lee Greer. "That was meaningful to us so now we're here."
