Food was better than most chain restaurants. Menu is almost too big, kept getting lost - would rather they concentrate on a smaller menu & excel at that. Crab ball appetizer was great, fried cheese not so much. Jambalaya & gumbo were very good & big enough to take some home for lunch the next day. Desserts were awesome!

Located on mall property but it is an out building. Very busy. Service and food quality has been excellent. Always get cheesecake to bring home as their meals are filling and will enjoy it later May be pricey but we enjoy. Never feel rushed..

If you've been to a Cheesecake Factory you know the story. The menu is the same, the desserts are the same. The food was good but certainly not spectacular. I will give 5 stars to the wait staff...they were bright, cheerful, and very accomodating.

Very Clean. Everyone was very polite and will to give you service. I felt the portions were a little on the lean side for what 4 of of got for the price. The taste of everything was exceellent. The desserts are exceptional .

This was the second visit my wife and I made there with her parents. The first time we had a relatively good meal but in a noisy environment. This time, I can't really say anything good about the place except for the excellent desserts. Generally, the portions are huge at the Cheesecake Factory, but my wife and I ordered beef... More

Don't get me wrong. I love the Cheesecake factory, but the last two times I ordered the fish Tacos I was disappointed. Everything else I have ever gotten there has been great, The service is as good as it gets, and the food is always top notch. I will go back for dinner and of course the cheesecake, but will...

This is my second experience at a CCF and my thoughts remain the same as my first visit. A vast menu is both positive and negative. Lots of choices (too many for my taste) but that equals high prices. This to me is just your typical chain like Applebee's. After working in a few different establishments I can sense there... More

Very good & plentiful! We took my 80 yr. old Mom who started off by saying that the bread was too hard. However, once she saw the portions of the food & tasted it, she quickly changed her mind. She loved the place. She uses a walker & the servers were very accommodating, putting her walker out of the way.... More

I returned to Pittsburgh to visit family and my sister and I ALWAYS go to the Cheesecake Factory but this was my first time at South Side Works. It was great! We shared the corncake appetizer which was amazing and the Vietnamese rolls. We also split a wonderful appetizer salad. We were not disappointed! We sat outside and watched little... More
