Split Your Plate

The food at Cheesecake Factory is very good but there is SO much of it! If you are wanting to have room for the slice of cheese cake I suggest splitting a plate between two (or three?) people. We did have an order which ended up being wrong but they fixed it quick, and were very nice about it, so... read more

Celebrating my wife's birthday, and as they bring out everyone's food, waitress tells my wife that they ran out of her dish (turkey burger) . . . really? this is discovered as they are serving everyone else? I understand running out of certain dishes here and there, but there's NO excuse to notify the customer this late. Mgr RJ(?) had... More

First I will let you know I'm not a big fan of this restaurant however my overweight female friends love it. The cheesecakes are over processed and to perfect every time. The food is average and nothing special. There are better restaurant choices in the area.

Dined here for lunch with the family. Noisier than we expected. Interior is nice although sound attenuation would be nice in design. Sounds bouncing off all the hard surfaces and hard to have a conversation at your own table. Felt a little squished into our table with tables RIGHT next to us but it was still ok for a lunch...

The food was decent, its cheesecake factory. We felt for our waitress. She doesn't belong in that type of atmosphere. We sat outside and asked if she could move an umbrella so we wouldn't be in the sun. She was a small girl and needed help. No one helped her. The umbrella stood in the isle, while countless coworkers walked... More

We went here to celebrate Mothers' Day with a group of 12. The place was quite busy since it was Mothers' Day so service was slower than usual. One of the Moms didn't get her meal until everyone else was halfway done. The manager was kind enough to comp her a soup while she waited another 10 minutes before she... More

Ate dinner somewhere else and then stopped here afterwards for 2 slices of cheesecake to take back to the hotel. They had a large selection available and they were quick, prodivded forks and napkins and the Pineapple upside down and Key lime cheesecakes were fantastic!

The fried mac n cheese burger is as delicious as it is terrible for you. If you have a cheat day, go big and get this burger.
