There is always a line so be prepared. The menu is overwhelming with pages and pages of choices. I have never had a bad meal, love the salads which are always fresh. The bread is fantastic, the pastas, the appetizers could be a meal, and the portions are staggering. No one ever finishes. Take away boxes for leftovers are the... More

I'll just say it up front, the cheesecakes are generally quite good, an over-the-top and indulgent treat, generally (though I've had less luck with non-cheesecake desserts, with freshness often being an issue.) The dinner menu is expansive, to be sure - but to be honest, I've never really enjoyed *anything* on the menu - a large variety, but in my... More

A very popular chain. Wait for a table, especially on weekends can be an hour or more. Even when staff estimates 30 min. Menu is very extensive, creative. 30 pages of choices. Portions are large. Amazed that staff can create food so diverse, and do it fairly well. Our group spanned 3 generations, and everyone enjoyed

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
