Not Worth the Wait

Few restaurants are worth a wait of more than an hour....this certainly is not one of them. The portions are generous, the menu extensive but routine for a chain restaurant and the service was friendly; the price is fair. There are other restaurants in the area where the wait is less and the food... read more

I rarely eat cheesecake here, but I love the regular menu, especially the wide array of salads. I call in the order and it's usually ready in about 15-20 minutes. When I arrive in front I call again and they bring it right out. Lucky me, they are near my house.

I have eaten there many times. On one occasion we waited for a while and were then told that the tuna wasn't available. The manager came and said they were down to the last piece and he just didn't think it was up to their quality. We were there for that one thing. He comp'ed out drinks and we were... More

We had lunch here two days ago before going to the movie. They always have a long wait, but we were early enough (1pm) that the wait was short. They are known for gigantic plates, so we ordered (what we expected would be a small lunch) soup and half sandwich. It also came with a gigantic salad. More food than... More

Allison was a wonderful waitress and professional all the way. The chicken scampi is really delicious and so was the godiva chocolate cheesecake. I had a very nice experience for lunch here and I would highly recommend this place to others. I might even return in the future. I'm very satisfied. I didn't think chicken could be done with scampi... More

Not sure if it was late and the waitress was tired, but that was the only time in many of them that the waitress only came to the table a couple of times. It seemed as she was not interested.

Our hosts had called up earlier for reservations but were told that it's not available and was strictly on first come first serve basis. It was during the holiday season, the weekend after Christmas. When we turned up, it was very crowded and the waiting time was an hour (we were an entourage of 7). Since it was too late... More

Eating here is always a pleasure. You can never go wrong eating at Cheesecake factory. More than likely there will be a wait to eat and to get dessert, but you can’t get upset because people just love this place. There are attentive waitresses’ who are knowledgeable of their offerings. It’s the perfect place to celebrate your occasion.

We visited this restaurant on New Years Eve. Yes, we're crazy. Actually, we got a table within 5 min. Good timing. There were seven of us and our dinners went from a burger, stir fry, salad, steak, pasta and salmon. No complaints from anyone. This is a very large restaurant and it was packed. You had to elbow your way... More

My family loves this place. The prices are okay. I just don't like their cheese cake. It tastes bland and one time was excessively dry (stale?) If you came for the cheese cake you will be disappointed.
