Great

The wait time of course is long but it's worth it. Very good food and staff was very nice. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We arrived here on Valentines Day at 2:00pm thinking the wait time would be small. It was over an hour wait so we decided to get a spot at the bar in which we got seated in about 20 minutes. I recommend doing this if you don't mind it. The appetizer we tried, Salmon Wraps, were out of this world.... More

The Cheesecake Factory is a must stop whenever we are near Birmingham! The food and service is always good! I love the spicy cashew chicken! The crab bites are a tasty appetizer, as are the Buffalo Blasts! And of course the cheesecake comes in a variety of delicious flavors! The menu is quite extensive so we often have trouble deciding...

We usually celebrate our special days at Cheesecake Factory. It is our favorite restaurant. The servers are always friendly & knowledgeable. We usually order the Chicken Piccata, plus a slice of Chocolate Mousse Chessecake. We love the chefs there!.

Driving through Alabama and just wanted a nice salad and a big dessert. This is the spot! Sat in the rotunda area which was cool architecture. Service was great, very friendly server. BBQ ranch salad was phenomenal and the cherry cheesecake was ... Amazing. Don't miss this one if you're in Birmingham!

When it comes to most chain restaurants, they are good, but not great. Not the Cheesecake Factory, it is always AMAZING. The menu is huge, and everything I've tried is delicious. The portions are very large, sometimes 3 meals! The cheesecake is always to die for, and can be shared with 3 or 4 people!

The food was " nothing thi write home about" after a 3 hour wait.. For paying that kind of money you would think they could organize a bit better. We will never go back unless given a gift certificate( which is why we went) and if we do it will be at a really ODD hour!

About 45 minute wait on Saturday night. Leave cell phone number and will text when able ready. Plenty of shops close by. Outdoor seating if indoor full. Waiter did great job with several tables he had. Had Bistro Shrimp Pasta which was delicious. Wife had fried shrimp which was more than could eat. Cheesecake is the perfect way to finish... More
