Nice

Enjoyed our lunch. Good service. It was very crowded, though. Had to wait too long for food and refills.

The cheesecake is good. Just save yourself from the complex menu and just get cheese cake to go and eat somewhere in the mall area. We have eating at other cheese cakes before but this on is not on par. I felt like I was at a ball game with the roar of the crowd. I was so glad to... More

The Cheesecake factory has a huge menu. We had the chicken and biscuits along with two pieces of cheesecake. The food was very good as it usually is and the Cheesecake factory but the service was very slow. Had they been busy this might not have been surprising but there were probably 5 tables used when we were there. It... More

We loved the variety of entrees but the number of choices were nearly overwhelming. The food was grand.

We came for lunch and brought my parents who are in their 80's. We were looking for a light lunch with small portions. Didn't find anything like that on the menu. We ordered off the lunch menu, but even then, could not finish the meal. Personally, I don't see what all the fuss is about here. Menu was different but... More

First time at a Cheesecake Factory and we had a very nice and relaxing dinner with family. The restaurant was large and it had a good size bar area. We had about a 20 minute wait for a table as it was graduation weekend for the area colleges. The menu was so extensive that it took awhile to decide what... More

The restaurant is very average in its food offerings. The food is good but not outstanding and the prices are a little high for this type of establishment. the noise level is very high and there is usually a wait for a table around dinner time. The service is very good and the restaurant goes out of its way to... More

I ordered the Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes, to-go, and asked for the sauces to be "on the side". When I get there to pick it up...everything and then some was piled on top of the cakes. I asked for a refund, and instead the manager (a male whose name I fail to remember) offers to re-make the order "myself". Tell... More

GLASS IN MY DRINK!!!! If you value your health don't go here!!!!! I ordered a frozen drink there and was informed that when they put it in a warm glass it exploded. I was told that a new drink would be made and brought to me. When the "new" drink arrived I took a sip and crunched down on what... More

Considering the incredible number of options offered (on the menu) it is somewhat amazing the food is as good as it is. Clearly a great choice if you are part of a group where everyone wants to eat something different. The portions are so large I don't know how anyone eats dessert.
