I would recommend this restaurant for dessert and drinks only. I say it every time but still order food and am disappointed. I probably just haven't ordered the right menu item. The menu is actually a book! Our hot artichoke and crab dip was very greasy. My lemon chicken was okay, didn't have much lemon flavor. My husband ordered the... More

We normally love the Cheesecake Factory, but this visit was unimpressive. The restaurant was not busy when we arrived. We were seated immediately. However, the waiter seating us didn't say anything to us and just handed the menus and walked away. Not sure who our waiter was, we sat at the table about 15 minutes before anybody came to take...

Love the options of cheese cake here. Went with the red velvet tho go around and it was wonderfully delicious. Had only appetizers to eat and loved the buffalo blasts and mini hamburgers. Fast and friendly services was a plus. Not bad at all for a chain restaurant.

I've eaten here twice; once alone at the bar and once with a friend. It is loud, so expect to speak louder than normal to have a conversation. The food is excellent and portions are large. Small plate items are often enough for a meal. For example, the Vietnamese cellophane spring rolls are about six inches long and come in... More

This was the first time I walked into a Cheesecake Factory and was seated right immediately. The staff was responsive and food was great!

If the Cheescake Factory is ranked 16 out of 216 in Columbia, it is a pointed comment on the poor palates in Columbia. Our experience (one time was enough) was less than poor. 4 of us went there and it was so crowded that we hardly even had space to stand in line. You might ask, "Why did you stay?"... More

The Chesecake Factory is the Chesecake Factory. Big place, bigger menu and even bigger waits. Simple dishes, huge portions and of course hundred of Chesecakes to choose from. I have to say the place is well run and quality is consistent. I always order a Margarita and chicken piccata. If I order something different, I get disappointed. My family have... More

My request for my birthday dinner was just to have cheesecake. My family knew what I meant. We 5 adults arrived early in the day expecting freezing rain and snow that evening. We were greeted and seated almost immediately even though it appeared that they were very busy. We looked over the menu and decided to just ask for suggestions... More
