Co-worker lunch

A co-worker and I planned a lunch together. Our waiter recommend the appetizer menu which was smaller potions. We ended up choosing 4 appetizers to share. It was a great company along with lunch. Plus we treated ourselves to a cheesecake to go. This was my first time at this location.

Extremely low lighting. Always a "2 strike" for numerous reasons , primarily safety. Might not even meet minimal lighting standard. Overheard same comments for years. When dark, cleanliness an issue. Crowded, noisey, understaffed on weekends. Food average to good , for the price. Have tried many dishes - I try to stick to avocado burger or spaghetti and meatballs. Luis,... More

The Cheesecake Factory has a lot of things on their menu. That's good, because you can usually find something to fit your tastebuds. Their service is usually fair to good, but the restaurant is usually so crowded (popular), loud and cold. The food is generally pretty good. We eat there a lot due to it's convenient location and late serving... More

The food at the Cheesecake Factory was outstanding. Although the place stays packed, they are very good at getting you seated and served. Our waiter was very fast and attentive.

Very solid experience, menu has everything you could possibly want on it. Nothing that blows you away but something for everyone. A great place to take a group of friends or family

The happy hour is also great for when you don't want that much to eat - appetizers are to scrumptious and just $5 each!!

When you take your family out for a meal, you expect a memorable time. However, this wasn't the case at this location. Eager customers here were waiting for tables and after a 35 minute wait, we were seated in a large booth. "The problem started as soon as we were seated." Since our return from the Island of Oahu and... More

Went for my daughter's birthday dinner and everyone (except vegan Dad) was in the mood for steak..., who knew the Cheesecake Factory prepared perfect filet mignon ? The cut was flavorful and cooked to perfection and the garlic mashed potatoes were delectable. Not unique, but CF always delivers
