My daughter and I are both gluten intolerant, and we found ourselves forced to eat out one day. We chose Cheesecake Factory because we've always liked their food. This day, our server ended up going to the back to check ingredients FOUR times, to make sure no GMO foods or gluten were in our possible choices. He was gracious, kind,... More

The Cheesecake Factory is a great place to eat. The hardest part is deciding what to eat. They have an extensive menu and everything I have tried it great. Their pizza is good, salads are good, pasta, sliders, burgers, steaks, meat load, and especially the cheesecake and other cakes. I always have to eat there everytime I go near Durham.

It's a chain that is consistent. It amazes how vast the menu is with a variety of options. The service was good and the entrees were predictable. The flat bread and skinnylicous turkey sandwich were tasty and what we wanted. The interior never disappoints and it has good ambience. It wasn't too crowded which made our meal much more enjoyable.

1 meal and 2 hairs = 1 v bad experience. 1 hair in my wife's salad and 1 in my son's sandwich. Very gracious waiter and mgt. but ugh! Beware of the hair.

After a day of travel we were looking for a place to eat. We were familiar with The Cheesecake Factory so we stopped in for dinner. The wait staff was engaging and funny and very good. Dinner was excellent, and for those of us that had room for cheesecake, it was awesome!

I have tried a lot of different meals and everything I have tried has been awesome... I love the cob salad! And of course you cant go there without getting some cheesecake. I love the assortment of favors.

Nice staff, great location. We ate there twice in 2 days. Everything was great except the soup of the day which came with the lunch special- half sandwich, salad and soup. The soup was awful. One bite and that was it. Everything else was wonderful. Great outdoor dining to people watch.

Typical high volume CF. Service was pretty good for early Saturday evening. Food was certainly edible, but gave off the assembly line vibe of this sort of restaurant.

Got my order wrong, then tried to talk me out of getting it changed because she was new. Food is just ordinary and in my opinion overpriced. Didn't stay for desert after the poor attitude.
