Best Desert To Go

After a night of dining at PFChangs we hopped across the street to pick up desert to take home. The setup is like most other cheesecake factories in that there is a nice "cheesecake only" counter right near the door for guests such as us. The staff was incredibly attentive and although there was... read more

My daughters like going to Cheesecake Factory, and it's always very solid service (very good, after we got lucky to avoid the 90 minute wait and found seats at the bar). The food is always too much, and mostly tasty, but it's a big loud family place.

I was a little disappointed all of our food did not arrive at the same time. I ordered a salad and the lettuce was not as fresh as I prefer, tasted like it was from a bag. Cheesecake was delightful.

Love their food even if it is too much and their cheesecake OMG get in my mouth! It's a wonderful date type place.

We arrived on a Saturday evening in late November after watching a movie. It was right in the middle of dinner rush, and the hostess said we'd have a 30-40 minute wait, but we could sit at the bar and not wait. We sat at the bar - I ordered an old fashioned, which was way too sweet. We ordered... More

I visited this location with a friend and it was worth the 2 hour drive to get there. Very easy to get into and out of. When we arrived we were seated immediately and our waitress was at our table shortly there after. Her name was Shakira and she was the best waitress I have ever encountered between all of... More

We were here for coffee and cheesecakes. It was a delicious treat to indulge in such flavorful, smooth and rich cakes. It's $7.50/pcs though it's a big slice and of high quality ingredients. We particularly love the Godiva choc and the Kahlua cocoa coffee cheesecakes. The settings and deco for this Outlet were beautiful. Overall we enjoyed our time here.... More

We had a nice meal. Fish tacos and the lettuce wrap. The service was pleasant although the did forget the bread (which was probably better for me anyway...).

This place knows how to treat their customers as well as feeding them delicious food. The atmosphere is refreshing. My only concern is price.

The food is good, the portions are large, there is often a wait. It does tend to be noisy. Except for the last two considerations, we might eat here more often.
