Friday night - dining room was filled and there was a nice energy level. Requested my hamburger medium rare "with more rare" and it was perfect. In other restaurants the char broiled food sometimes has a burnt taste..This burger was delicious - this chef got it right. Our server, Nicole, was excellent. Oh.. and the chocolate cake slice is big... More

I don't come very often, but I'm always surprised that the food is better than I expected. This location has a weird layout, with the dining on the second floor. Lots of choice on the menu.

If you enter from the parking lot, expect to climb about 30 stairs to the main floor; the only elevator is on the mall side. A plethora of items on the menu, but only one soup, and that was potato soup. One of us ordered salad with salmon. The lettuce was wilted and the salmon tasted rotten; we turned it... More

I have eaten at several Cheescake Factory Restaurants across the country - most often at this location. Food is consistently good and portions ample. My favorite entrée is the miso salmon - perfectly poached salmon filet over white or brown rice and covered with a delicate miso sauce. Absolutely delicious! But then again, everything else I have eaten is also... More

If you love cheesecake, this is the place for you. The food is above average, the adult beverages are good but very expensive.

We had a late lunch with our brother-in-law and sister-in-law. This restaurant change really can fit a number of dietary needs. Extra vegetables can be purchased for a potato/rice substitute for a small fee (about $1) if you are avoiding carbohydrates. Also, they have many coffee drinks including decaff versions. If you want to resist the cheesecake offerings, the bowl... More

Denise was our waitress and she was absolutely fabulous. Very friendly atmosphere. We ordered the cuban rolls, cheese sticks, pizza and chocolate tower truffle cake while my hubby ordered a apple pie cheesecake. Denise was knowledgable about which items we should choose and am glad we did. Those cuban rolls were awesome and love the mustard dip for them. And... More

The service was fantastic, the food was exceptionally good. The atmosphere was a very comfortable, friendly one. The food was extremely expensive. I'd highly recommend it as a nice place to go every once in awhile.

We had just gotten into town and checked into our hotel. Saw "the factory" on our Garmin and came to enjoy the food! Had to order the dessert to go; to full!
