We'd been recommended by friends in the UK and it was worth going. It's like a tardis, an enormous emporium to Cheesecake. We had guacamole, 2 x milkshakes, endame beans and one piece of cheesecake and it was more than four of us could eat. The waiter was great. Service on a very busy day not too bad. The ceiling...

It was already 11:15 p.m. and they still took us in! That was very much appreciated. Loved our server DeLeon. Great fellow and all business upfront, but fun in the back! Made us feel very welcome even though he was serving on many other tables at the same time. Definitely look forward to coming back.

I had eaten at one other Cheesecake Factory before and had found the individual cheese pizza, while overpriced, satisfactory, so when I was recently in Chicago on Michigan Avenue with friends we decided to stop in and eat. It was a Friday afternoon at 3 p.m., so not too crazy, and they told us it would be a 15-minute wait,... More

Factory is a correct word for this place. It's a factory of people. Our server was non existent, 15 minutes to get a drink order after we were seated, asked for water when we were seated, never came, asked again when the drinks came, then took another 10 minutes. Server brought the meals, but only for me, they forgot my... More

Almost too many choices on the menu. Would have to go here 30-40 times to try everything that looks good.

Not as the name suggests. Theres lots more than cheesecake although they are amazing. The first mouthful I'd taken of my chicken pasta dish was absolutely delicious. A must if you go to Chicago

After a long day of shopping we were so relieved to finally sit down for a nice meal. Our server Kayla was phenomenal! She was quite eloquent in guiding us through the menu and really made us feel right at home! We ordered a slew of apps (ahi carpaccio, some small plate tacos etc) which were clean, quick and delicious.... More

We thought that the Cheesecake Factory was just something from the Big Bang Theory, and were very surprised to find it is a chain of restaurants! It just had to be tried. There was a short wait, and the receptionist clearly struggled with our English accents, but she was the only staff member who had that problem. Once we were... More

I waffled between a 4 and 5 star review on this. I have eaten at Cheesecake Factories so many times that it has become routine, and for that I feel a bit tainted. I don't LIKE to always eat at chain restaurants, but this place doesn't give you the Darden vibe of an OG or Dead Lobster. We came here... More
