I totally love the Cheesecake Factory! It has a vast menu, the portions are huge...so beware of having a main meal, if you want to leave room for cheesecake. I went with friends who are locals, this time. They think it is touristy and expensive. However, I prefer to know what you are getting rather than take a risk with... More

The menu is big and the food quality is good, as in any other Cheesecake Factory. I was a little disappointed because there was some misunderstanding during seating. We asked for a table on the patio (which was repeated) and were told it would take about 15 minutes. However we were taken to a table inside already 3 minutes later.... More

There is so much to choose from here. Go hungry. Enjoy the service and try to sit outside near the fountains if possible. We have one where we are from, but it is still a fun location in the Hancock Building. Time it right and you can see the city views at 360 Chicago and then eat a late lunch!

Because we are old we don't usually go to this kind of place but it was great. Good service and interesting food, plus the cheesecake was amazing for us Brits. Went at lunch time so had to wait to get a table but no prob.

This was my first time eating a full meal at the Cheesecake factory. Well there is so much choice..and most of it is home classics. I went for chicken and biscuits. Was delicious. Very tasty, very good prices. I was so full, and really shouldn't have had the pudding...but, how could I resist the cheesecake. I had to be rolled... More

Second time at the cheesecake factory and the service is still as good as I remember! Staff are very friendly and one even got me bandaids for my blisters (from too much walking). HAVE TO TRY THE ULTIMATE RED VELVET CHEESECAKE - it's perfection! My male friend with me who isn't into "sweet stuff" said that it was perfect too!... More

Very nice atmosphere (albeit slightly dark), super fast and very friendly service. The menu is also very extensive so I'm sure there is something for everyone! I've had the Carbonara and my husband had the Shepherd's pie... both were tasty but loaded with garlic so repeated on us quite a lot. We were also served bread first and because the... More

We had lunch at this restaurant and it was great! The food was flavoursome and the cheesecake was the best! I wish we had this brand in Australia!

this cheesecake factory is very well,even though there are so many people waiting for their seats.I find it is the most delicious food in Chicago for Asian people.
