Very nice food

Amazing menu selection served out on a deck looking across the marina and all of the incoming planes to LAX! The food was very good and the location excellent. The only downside was that there seemed to be a bit of a sewage issue - leading to a bit of a smell that a number of people commented on.

On the water, great food, great staff, and close to LAX (within 7 miles). If you are staying around the airport or in the area this is 100% worth the time and money.

We have enjoyed this restaurant across the nation, and this one did not disappoint. Very popular and busy most days of the week. On Fri-Sun expect LONG waits at normal dining hours. Valet service available. Beach and playground within walking distance. Friendly and accommodating service, and well prepared menu items. Several birthdays were celebrated, and most guests appeared satisfied. Heaters... More

Typical American menu. Food and serves good but nothing to rave about. Busy but friendly service. Deserts probably main attraction.

Traveling in LA and wanted to check out a cheesecake factory as its kind of touristy! Went for dinner and there was a group of six. We didn't have to wait for a table but other people were waiting.

My wife and I got married early in December, and after a long red-eye flight to LAX from Cleveland, we had a few hours to spend before we were able to get into our vacation rental in Marina Del Rey. We were famished, and not having any particular plans, decided to stop into the Cheesecake Factory for a longer brunch/lunch.... More

As other shops a great place to eat. Clean, not so crowed, taste food. Normal as other places in chain.
