They're all alike

This was the same as any other Cheesecake Factory I've been to. They're all alike. But the food is good if you don't mind waiting for a table. If you have a wife with a mind set on eating there you might as well suck it up. We were told the wait was going to be 20 minutes, but I... read more

Have been to several, this one was excellent. My favorite dish is Evelyn pasta, hold the Tuscan chicken. The best Cheesecake is the red ribbon and triple chocolate truffle. Service was excellent

One reviewer has commented that Cheesecake Factory restaurants are "all alike." That seems true to this writer. Have eaten at these venues in Florida, Honolulu and Annapolis Maryland. Food is attractive, generous and delicious. In Sterling all of this is true as well. Despite somewhat languid service here the rest is the same. Sausage Shrimp pasta is deeply flavored and... More

I've been going to this place for years, and one thing I can say about CCF is that they are always consistent. Be prepared for a 10-15 minute wait on a weekend for dinner. The service is a hit or miss. We've sometimes had great service, and other times we had to ask for our waiter/waitress to come back to... More

Surprised they were able to handle such a large group, and couldn't believe how good my food was. I had the shrimp and steak Dianne. Loved the mushrooms. I opted for broccoli instead of potatoes. Since I'm a shrimp lover having the three shrimp on the side was plenty and liked the flavor. My steak pieces were a little on... More

I've been to this place a number of times and always pleased with the food and service. Sometimes the waits are long, so pays to reserve if able. It is in a big mall area, so I would forward plan. Their menu is amazingly large and yet it is prepared very well. I am not usually a dessert person, but... More

I had seen this store mentioned on a popular TV show and was visiting my sister-in-law, coming from Greece. I suggested we have lunch there. She warned me that it "was expensive", but I figured, this is only lunch, so let's do it. We only had two ice teas, one appetizer, and two small portions of spaghetti. Well, the bill... More
