Fantastic fast service

I had a couple of hours to spare before I needed to catch a flight for IAD. The cheesecake factory was very busy but they managed to slot me in with only a 5 minute delay due to the very helpful staff. As always, the food was fantastic and in large portions.

As tempting as the desserts at Cheesecake Factory always are, the main courses are wonderful as well so we often end up skipping dessert. Their chicken lettuce wraps (or chicken tacos as they sometimes call them) are amazing!

Sure it's a chain store but it is always one of the best around. We frequent this one and have yet to be disappointed. Lunch or Dinner this place is going to satisfy.

What?! I've been coming here for YEARS and haven't written my review? Can't. Be. Possible. Better late than never I suppose. I always seem to pick this place as my "special me celebration" location several times a year. Each birthday, Valentine's, Mother's Day, etc, the honoree picks where to go and this is usually mine. I save it for special... More

Corporate and huge, it was everything this chain should be. I had a flatbread with chorizo. Tastey and well presented. Saltier than I prefer. It was clean. Service was friendly. Nothing outstandingly awesome. Biggest irritation was the bizarre music that was far too loud for how empty the place was. If you like chains, this should suit your fancy.

I routinely spend the day at Dulles Airport and CF is my favorite lunch option on those days. Pretty convenient to the airport and if I have more time to kill lots of good shopping at the mall. As usual the staff is friendly and attentive. The huge menu has something for everyone and I have yet to have a... More

My husband and I went here Saturday after doing some shopping at the mall. We sat at the bar since there was just few people there. Had good service, the bar tender was friendly . We had him before. I ordered a beet with goat cheese salad and my husband the skinny burger. We both liked our food. Except management... More

Just sit and enjoy the view and choose a appetizer and then enjoy a great dinner then save some room or take home some cheese cake but after all that you will be glad you did.
