WE stopped here on impulse, and we are really glad we did. We were seated quickly as it was a mid-week evening. Service was outstanding, drinks and warm bread appeared at our table withing 2 minutes of ordering. The food was wonderful, hot, fresh and soo good. Our waitperson came by a couple of times during the meal to check... More

I like this Cheesecake Factory, the food is always good! The only issue, it is always very crowded. Service is inconsistent, oftentimes it's good but there have been a few visits where we have to look for our server. Overall, if I am in the mood for Cheesecake Factory, I prefer this one. One caveat, you would be hard pressed... More

We went early (about 5 pm) and were immediately seated. The server was very professional and courteous and accomadating. There were six of us, so we had a good cross section of dishes. The problem we encountered was that it took about an hour to get our entrees. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food once it arrived. The server was... More

Wait was nothing, which was good. However, service was VERY slow. Server greeted our table quickly and brought our drinks, however, we waited awhile for the bread. Then the remainder of the service was slow. The server "Harry" was friendly (very loud), but slower. Appeared he was working harder and not smarter. Food quality was poor compared to the other...

Amazing place and very famous, so expect waiting when you go for dinner. You will feel tables are crammed up but food is good.

The Cheesecake Factory has a lot of items on their menu to choose from. They also have a skinny menu. They had a recall on their turkey so you couldn't order anything that contained turkey which limited your lunch choices. The portions are fairly big for the price. The garden salad with house dressing was really good. I also ordered... More

Although it's always busy, it's hard to see why. The food is middle of the road, crowd pleasing stuff. The menu is enormous and the service pleasant. But in the end it's not authentic cheesecake and not really very good.

For a sit-down restaurant outside a major shopping mall, The Cheesecake Factory was a good, average restaurant. We were seated promptly in a bustling dining room. There is a broad menu, and we chose from the lower calorie options. Prices were reasonable, and dinner served fairly quickly. Our server was annoying. I can't stand someone asking, "Are we ready to... More

Went for lunch and from the moment we walked in, we felt rushed. (There weren't many patrons in the place.) Immediately after being seated, the waitress kept pushing us to order drinks and before we could even look at the extensive menu she was back again pushing us to decide our entrees. Yet, unbelievably, getting a piece of pumpkin cheesecake... More
