Since this is a chain, I won't review the food but just this particular restaurant. I will say that I love the food there, though! Huge portions and good quality. The Sante Fe salad is my favorite (without the chicken since I'm vegetarian), and the sweet corn tamale cakes and avocado egg rolls are amazing as well. Lots to choose... More

My husband, son and I met my niece and her family at the Columbia Cheesecake Factory for dinner. We were surprised to find that the restaurant was very empty and we were seated immediately. In the past, we have always had to wait for service at other Cheesecake Factories. We ordered a variety of dishes. My niece ordered the fried... More

My husband and I ate here on Sunday, August 10th. The best thing I can say is that there was no wait, inside or out, for dinner. When we arrived at our table, there were crumbs on the seat which needed to be brushed off before sitting down. Same for the person who sat at the table next to ours.... More

We stopped off for a salad and cheesecake during there half price cheesecake day. We sat outside and enjoyed the early evening. Salad was good, but the best part of the meal was the red velvet cheesecake. By the time we left there was a very long line for tables but even longer line for cheesecake take out. We put... More

Celebrated a new friend's birthday there. Table was allocated within a few minutes. Food was delicious and overall service delivery was fantastic.

The skinnylicious white bean chili was very good; the drinks were ok. However the wait for the cheesecake which we ordered at the same time we ordered our food, was very long. It actually didn't arrive until 15 minutes after we finished our meal. I certainly wouldn't eat here again, maybe another cheesecake factory; as my experience at other locations... More

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
