Typical Cheesecake Factory

This was the first Cheesecake Factory to open. Very busy at peak times and you'll usually have a 30 min wait. Food portions are large, huge menu to choose from, service is reasonably good. If you've never been to a Cheesecake Factory, you need to go.

Perfect location, great food and great service. Located right on the marina you get some great water views when dining on patios. Parking is valet only, but other than that a great time.

Good food, great service and excellent value. As in most US restaurants, the portion sizes are large by European standards so a starter is best to share. Even a desert is huge and again sharing is probably best unless you can eat a BIG portion of cheesecake!!

If you like cheesecake you've got to visit this place. massive choice of cheesecake and the ones we had were great quality. The portions don't look massive but you'll do well to finish.

We had excellent cheesecakes. The location is also wonderful, in the marina. The other dishes were also very good and the prices are acceptable too.

We tried 3 different lunch items plus 2 from the children's menu. All were delicious, and we brought some of the food home. Our waiter was wonderfully patient and attentive. We sat at a table overlooking a playground so the kids could go back and forth.
