Was at your location on Clinton Hwy Knoxville, tn 37912 for dinner with my family while I was home on christmas leave from returning from Afghanistan.We had finished iur meal and when I asked if they gave a military discount the server said they only did that for uniformed personnel, so I asked to speak to the manager Juan.

When talking to him he told me that I had to be in uniform, I feel like it is a loop hole to say that you offer a discount without habing to give one. As a corporation I would for you to reconsider this policy for people who fight for this country, regular people can go to any army surplus store and get a uniform and act like they are in the military and get the discount that actually veterans and actuall military personnel cannot get. When we take leave or get off duty we take thw uniform off and when going out to dinner you dont want to put it back on just to get the discount when so many other places simply ask for a military ID.

I hope you all get this straightened out because I will not be eating there again without that and I will tell all my veteran and active duty family to not eat there also.You can contact me at 865-742-3093 or email me at thank you.

Cheddars offered one in the first place. so it's not like he is begging for something because he is military. That is a dumb rule. I'd almost rather them not offer on at all then only offering it to some military veterans. I've been to chains that offer discounts near my base and then on leave I am shopping at the same store different location. I asked for the discount and they say "nope we don't have one". I just think the country is country wide. An active duty military member is sorta always on duty too, uniform or not.
Dude it's there choice. STF up. You give the rest of us who serve a bad name. No one has an obligation to give you anything. You're serving. Research the term and please use spell check.
Wow. I agree, what a disappointment!
Bad idea posting your email address and phone number on this very public website.

The world doesn't owe anything but when you make not so descent lay and sacrifice your life for this country to not be home or with family I think a little appreciation is in order.
