Walk in and it feels like a party. For YOU! The Cheesecake Factory in Destiny is beautiful. There is a feel that Chagall painted the decor. On the way to the cheesecake course, There is the beer and wine course (no surprises). The excellent salad courses and the interesting, well prepared, yummy, varied main (well, the main course is, of... More

Meatloaf is delicious and gigantic (lunch or dinner portion). Waiters are nice as well as other staff. They dont take reservation though so forget going there on weekends... always crowded unless you go super early. Nice happy hour deals.

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.

Had a late lunch and it was enjoyable. I have been here several times and since it's a chain restaurant the food is pretty consistent and good. I think its a bit overpriced. However, there is a wide variety of options - something for everyone. The cheesecake is always good. Sometimes for a special treat I will stop by for... More

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.

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
