Cheesecake factory never disappoints if your expectations are aligned with what they offer. Be ready to stroll through the mall and do your shopping during the hour long wait. Have some idea online what you are going to have and how many calories you can afford that day. As health conscious websites note, even skinnylaceous items are high in salt.... More

I do love the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake but the other thing is that the menu for this place is nothing short of a novel. I have only had about 5 of the 1000 items on the menu but all have been good.

I am a frequent visitor of the cheesecake factory and I normally only go for happy hour or the dinner service. You can't go wrong with the happy hour menu or the price of brews or cocktails. I highly recommend the nachos and the crab wontons on the happy hour menu. The staff is always very professional and always helps... More

Chicken and Avocado Sandwich - Always like the table bread, gives you something to munch on while waiting for your meal or just taking the time to read through the book that is the Cheesecake Factory menu. Portions are very large on most things so its a great place to split a meal and still get full. We had the... More

On a December Wednesday night, 50% of the tables were empty; nevertheless we had to wait 25 minutes for a table. The service was very average and they did not refill our water; food was delayed from the kitchen and was delivered at three different times to six members of our party. Food came in large portions, but was average... More

I usually steer clear of chain restaurants. However, the kids insisted on getting cheesecake for dessert and we agreed to visit the Cheesecake Factory in Sterling VA. Well, this was a very disappointing experience! First off, there was a peculiar moldy smell inside the restaurant. Then the server came to greet us, took the drinks order but he literally took...

I had lunch here last week and it was good overall. I had the Samosas as a starter and they were crispy and flavorful with a nice dipping sauce. I ordered the old fashioned burger as my entree and it was cooked just as I ordered it which was medium rare. Nice side of crispy fries to go with the... More

A standard Cheesecake Factory with quality servers but slow and infrequent attention as is common at other locations. The initial wait was short only 15-20 minutes. The interior is nicely decorated. The volume was not too loud. The quality of food was good and the menu offers so many possible choices that there is something for everyone. Better than most... More
