Food is good. Beware if taking out food. Orders consistently incomplete or inedible. They will make it right, but very inconvenient to have to return.

This restaurant often has a wait line. The menu is extensive. Be prepared to read a while. The servings are enormous. There are cooks here, no chefs. The cheesecake is always, always excellent.

Our family had a lovely perfect Spring outdoor lunch today at Cheesecake Factory close to noon. It was worth the 15 minutes for a outside table for that perfect weather after a long, cold winter. We had variations of lunch size salads which are fresh, delicious and felt healthy. The tropical ice tea and oat freshly baked bread complemented perfectly... More

Our hostess looked like she hated her job. She didn't even try to crack a smile. By the time food got to our table it was literally ice cold. I was very disappointed in this restaurant. Manager refused to come and speak with us or at least we were told this.

My family and I were visiting Columbia, MD and a big fan of The Cheesecake Factory we decided to visit the Columbia location for desserts. We were told to wait 20-30 minutes as they were full. After waiting for over 40 minutes we asked the hostess of how much longer it would be. We were told that it shouldn't be... More

The only thing bad about the Cheesecake Factory is that they don't take reservations so the wait can be long, and usually is. But, one thing is for sure-people wouldn't do it if the food wasn't good. Fortunately, they do a pretty good job of getting people in and out as quickly as they can and no doubt you'll be... More

At about 3:30 pm on a Saturday we were told the wait would be 40 minutes. We were finally seated at about 430pm. The place was packed with people waiting and the lobby was so hot we waited outside. Once seated the service was good enough although our waiter seemed distracted and quite busy with other tasks. The food wasn't... More

I tried to submit a review on their contact form on the cheesecake factory website this morning before posting this first but I had much difficulty. The comment section disappeared as I was finishing up forcing me to try to start over and then it rejected the comment once as undeliverable. Therefore, I will submit a review here instead. I...

This downtown Columbia restaurant is always crowded. If you have a group and are willing to show up when they open for lunch, you can make a reservation. My friends and I try to get the round table in the round room off to the side where it's not quite so noisy. The menu is huge. If you can't find... More
