Reliable, good food

This particular Cheesecake Factory does not have a lot of seating indoors, most of it is outdoors. The food is always good and there are plenty of choices. Reasonably priced. Their cheesecakes are to die for! Valet parking and self-parking available. Next door to Foghorn Harbor Inn where we stayed.

After starting with Buffalo blasts and attempting the famous factory meatloaf there was certainly no room for cheesecake. Five pieces of chicken and cheese were more than enough for a starter. Drinks prices were reasonable and good views or Marina.

A bright spectacular Sunday afternoon overlooking Mother's Beach. Lunch with old friends--emphasis on old. We're all counting calories. Was the Cheesecake Factory the wisest choice? Absolutely. Try the Skinny Meals section; low in calories with no loss in flavor. I had the Skinny Burger with everything and a small salad, dressing on the side (I miss you fries.). My friend... More

Great food and great atmosphere on the beach in the Marina. Nice place to sit outside and have a drink or grab some food. Best atmosphere to enjoy the Cheesecake Factory menu.

When we travel we always look for a Cheesecake Factory - was very excited Marina del Rey had one so we had to visit. We were lucky and got a table indoors very quickly, but took our server about 15 minutes to even acknowledge us. Then took her another 15-20 minutes to take us bread, she told us she was... More

Noticed that each Cheesecake Factory Restaurant we have been to have different architectural style and different atmosphere. We had our very first Cheesecake experience in Palo Alto, CA - was impressed with its yummy food and yummy desserts. Per suggestion by my husband, we had our dinner in CFR in Marina del Rey. Was taken by surprise by the valet... More

It's hard to order something else when you're happy with what you have ordered in the past. However, I do try to order something different and am very pleased with the variety they offer. The wait staff is good, as well. Patio dining is the best since you're not on a busy street and it's not as noisy as inside.... More

A typical Cheesecake Factory located on Mother' s Beach.....very good food, large portions, busy, noisy, overpriced if you include any beverages (tea, wine, soft drinks)...great for family occasions if you don't want romance or to do business.....the valet parking is pretentious
