I had no idea CF served omelets. I wasn't in the mood for traditional "lunch" food so I saw these - the California Omelette is incredible. For $11 I was stuffed. I couldn't even finish it. It came with fried potatoes which were also fantastic. Yum, normally I don't love chain restaurants but this one will have me again just... More

The food is always excellent- very large portions as well. Most of the salads would feed two people! Try the blueberry Mojito! It is out of this world good...one of the best I have ever had.

Wouldn't recommend eating here regularly. Very tasty, but a rich, guilty pleasure. Felt full for many many hours after dinning. Service was a little odd, but no complaints. They did hand us a signed copy of someone else's ticket, but no problem, it was quickly sorted out.

Went here on National Cheesecake day so I expected it to be crowded. We had about a 20 minute wait. Waitress was extremely slow & it didn't appear she had a lot of tables. We didn't get our bread until the meal was nearly over. For 2 people we had 5 pieces of dirty silverware. Good was okay when we... More

Not sure if there is a new kitchen manager, new kitchen help, or whatever, but last two to three visits have been very disappointing. The meals are not coming out together (defeats the purpose of going out to eat together), cold food and the avocado was hard as a rock. When avocado was returned and asked for more, a new... More

I called in a to go order last night and went to pick it up. Everything seemed fine and the order was ready when I arrived. When I got back to my hotel I pulled out my Santa Fe Chicken salad and there was NO chicken in the salad at all. I ate it and the delicious desert. Then called... More

I think we were told the wait would be about an hour, but it turned out to be only 35-40 minutes---plenty of time to salivate over the variety of cheesecakes on display. In order to be able to have room for cheesecake, I ordered the lettuce wrapped tacos, Mexican style. Perfect with white chocolate blueberry cheesecake! Expensive, but delicious!

We love eating the cheesecake at the Cheesecake Factory. My husband tried Linda's Fudge Cake this time. It was a large slice of chocolate on chocolate fudge cake and he enjoyed it. If you like apple pie, try the Dutch Apple Caramel Streusel Cheesecake - I savor every bite. The only reason I give it 4 stars is that the... More

We stopped for a break on a recent road trip. Sat at the bar because it has open seating and you don’t have to wait in line. I had a skinny Hamburger and salad which was good. My scrumptious dessert was the Hershey’s Chocolate Bar Cheesecake. We eat a light entree and go crazy on the dessert. We have never... More
