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.

After waiting on a very rainy Saturday night for a table, we were seated and got our food. The couple next to us left and then a family of four, mother, father, two very windy and obnoxious boys sat next to us. They fought and argued loudly as soon as they sat down. The restaurant was too busy for us... More

Just went out for dinner tonight and my initial thought was to go to Cheesecake factory a s that has been one of our favorites. We eat out typically at least twice a week. But today, it was quite a disappointment! When I first went in, the reception desk was not manned. No one is around. I waited. Then I... More

Had dinner last Sunday Food was good, but not overly impressive as I havenoften had in other Cheesecake Factory locations The bartender was clearly having a bad day and not as friendly as expected Restaurant men's room needed some attention, water on floor, no hand tissue

This has got to be the "go to place" for 3/4ths of Columbia for special occasions. Which is sad, for a place that was founded to be a new direction in city living, CF is distressingly mainstream. It has nothing that you could get for less (and less hassle)by walking another 100 yards to Nordstrom..
