During my visit to Birmingham I visited the Cheesecake Factory. Let me say the restaurant is awesome! Surrounded by other local restaurants and shopping centers. The atmosphere was great for family, Birtday parties or just enjoying drinks and good food with friends. Nice decor and I must say I... read more

My mom and I came here for my birthday, good food, a little expensive but the cheesecakes are to die for. They are rich and so many varieties to pick from and huge peices.

I got to the summit mall area about 2pm, not a long wait. My server introduced herself, she explained the menu to my guest and I. We went with the fried shrimp, the portion was small but tasty. The atmosphere was nice not loud or crowded, the rest rooms were pretty clean, the food was okay.

I come to this cheesecake factory every time I'm in town and usually love it and don't mind the wait. The menus are huge and the so are the plates, the cheese factory way. I have to say that usually I am able to sit with my wife and have a date night. This is no longer true. The bar... More

My first time at a Cheesecake Factory. We were celebrating our grandson's birthday. The menu is huge! Deciding what to order took a long time. I finally decided on an old fashioned cheeseburger. It was perfect. I think the best I have ever eaten. Service was great. Very friendly servers. Kept our drink glasses topped off. Cheesecake slices very generous.... More

The restaurant has gone from a respectable place to eat, to a hang out on the weekends for the young and aspiring group. The service shows lack of respect for the well paying customers due to so many non- tippers or poor tippers. This is now the norm. Also, the floors are so slippery in there, walking to your table...

The atmosphere was great for family, Birtday parties or just enjoying drinks and good food with friends. Nice decor and I must say I wanted to say "one of each please" for those desserts! Delicious!

My wife and I are celebrating our anniversary. It has been a grand experience. Our food was excellent. Of course the desert is off the chain. I was very very impressed with how much our server, Devon, knew regarding the menu. He knew what was in each dish we asked about and was extremely helpful (my first time here). The... More

Standard Cheesecake Factory menu, which is to say a very diverse selection of dishes, all of which are tasty and in nice proportions. The service, however, very substandard...slow to get our drinks, slow to get any refills, very slow to get our main dishes and then a few of the dishes were wrong. After several complaints, the manager arrived and... More

Very crowded on the weekends. The staff is very friendly and the food is worth the wait. Cheesecake is a must!

This was our first visit to the Cheesecake Factory and we both loved it!! The food was incredible with such a large selection!! We had perfectly poured drinks to start off, followed by the potstickers app that was scrumptious! The entrée, shrimp and grits, was perfectly cooked and the wait staff was always available! And don't forget or leave without... More
