Huge variety

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... read 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...

I stopped in for dessert in the middle of a storm and the restaurant's reputation did not disappoint. I had strawberry cheesecake and it was delicious. The service was not that attentive considering there were only a few people in the restaurant, but I wasn't in a hurry anyway.

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 comparable. On two separate occasions the... 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.
