Consistently Good Food and Very Good Service

The Cheesecake Factory is the type of restaurants you can always rely upon for consistently good food and with very good service. Wait times are fairly long on weekend dinner times so I suggest going early fir dinner.

I honestly feel this restaurant does a pretty good job with their regular menu which is served 7 days a week but the brunch which is served 4 hours a week on Sunday is nothing to brag about. Eggs cold, omelette made wrong, waiting a while for the meal. I would rather go to a restaurant that has an upper... More

I am a fan of the Cheesecake factory and have been to this location many times. However, dinner last week was disappointing. I ordered the cajun chicken and pasta, and aside from the cajun seasoning which trimmed the side of the plate, the food was bland in taste, especially the pasta. I was very disappointed. Service was efficient and friendly... More

Place was packed with people. We were told it'd be a 10-15 minute wait & we were seated within 15 minutes. This was our 1st time visiting. Staff was friendly & kept checking on us. Food was hot & delicious, my husband & I are Pasta people. Atmosphere was dark with low lit lights & candles, very romantic. We will... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Cheesecake Factory. Our Server was very nice, once they took our drink orders. I remember thinking, I wonder which whitening product they use they had a nice white smile. No sooner had I thought that they said they were a Dental Student-figures. I ordered a shot of Vanilla Vodka to go into my drink... More

The cheesecake factory has always been known for great food and deserts. This trip didn't disappoint. The food Matt be very pricey, but the ids enough to share. If you are going with friends, I would recommend splitting the bill, and enjoy a lot of food. Our waiter, however, was very unkind. He became openly annoyed with our group. Some... More

Had a peanut cheesecake and I could not eat half of it because they make it extremely sweet, way too much sugar for me, had to give the other half to my diabetic brother in law that had an insulin shot right before going to this place. I don't think I will order another in a very long long long... More

I enjoy this restaurant not just for the cheesecake variety but the sandwiches and salads are great also. I recently tried the biscuit dumpling which was very tasty but way too many calories for one meal. Service is usually quick and accommodating and although at Crabtree there is most always a wait, the seating area is large.
