Nice but crowded

Delicious food, plenty of options for vegetarians. Very crowded for lunch and dinner but its worth to wait. Will like to visit again.

Our server told us they were sending him home because they were slow and introduced us to another server. He seemed to have his hands full and he was very slow bringing our dessert and our bill. My boyfriend had to get back to work and this threw him behind. We had a nice meal of pasta and Southwestern sandwich.... More

It is a beautiful facility, the staff are super nice and helpful. The food is the best ever. They have a massive menu, something for everyone. The servings are huge, you can carry home some left overs to enjoy later. Whatever you do, be sure to save room for desert. The Cheesecake Factory lives up to its name when it... More

This was my first visit to the Cheesecake factory. We were here In November of 2012. This is still to this day, my favorite place! Arrived with my date and were seated after about 20 minutes. Highly impressive since it was a Saturday at dinner time. We sat down and he instructed me to order anything I wanted. Started with... More

It take too long wait for a table. They told me the wait time will be 30 min. but it was over an hour. Obviously it was Friday night, so it was expected. The food was good and service too, but very busy staff.

We arrived at Cheesecake Factory around 8:30pm on a Saturday and there was a line of people waiting to get in. We had a 50-60 min wait for a table. Fortunately there are shops nearby, so we walked around since the weather was nice. They do take a phone number and page you when your table is available. It was... More

Visited late on a Saturday night--but it was still very busy. Be prepared to wait. Food was very good, service was very good, but delivery of food took a little extra time, due to how busy they were. Ordered a Burger, Cheesesteak, Alfredo, and steak tacos. All were very good, but the Cheeseteak had been toasted too long, and was... More

The food is always tasty but the portions are so large they could be split between 2 or even 3 people! That is, of course, after you finish reading the novella that is the menu. But let's be honest, it's not called the hamburger factory or shrimp pasta factory. It's the cheesecake factory because you go for the cheesecake. Ask... More

I went with a couple of friends just for a quick bite to eat and I really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is kind of romantic and it's a great place for couples. We had the factory nachos + spicy chicken; the chicken wasn't that spicy but it was well seasoned, the guacamole was a lil more chunky than I prefer... More

On my first visit to The Cheesecake Factory, I was overwhelmed with the huge menu options. The menu is a book! There are too many options to make the restaurant stand out for any memorable reason other than, you get huge portions of food and it can be rather expensive. I was also under impressed with the taste of the... More
