The pumpkin cheese was delicious

I had corn soup which was really good and thick but the pumpkin cheesecake was the star. It's seasonal so get it while you can. It had a lightness to it that was refreshing after a heavy meal.

Decided to eat here during a recent trip to Virginia Beach and even though it was about 7:00 pm, we only waited about 30 minutes instead of the as stated 45 minute wait. The volume of noise in this restaurant really took away from the enjoyment of the excellent food and service which is so commonly found at any Cheesecake... More

Free parking is available in a parking garage within an easy walk to most of the shops and restaurants. The parking garage is located at the intersection of Bank Street and Central Park Avenue.

Went with a group of working partners recently and this place has a menu of 30 pages and great selections for everyone since most of us are having different taste buds and diets. I usually order my bang bang shrimp & chicken but this time i decided to order new item which is "Almond Crusted Salmon Salad". Oh my god,... More

Crowded as always due to the great food but it was well worth the wait. Cheese cake selection is way too large because you can't decide which one to eat

Ok so y'all know the food is the same no matter which one you go to. We went for the cheesecake which was good as always. But it was so dark in there! Maybe it's better during the day, but be prepared at night to not be able to see anything. Also no parking, so you have to deck park... More

Had a late lunch with the family after visiting the sand sculptures at the beach. Our waiter Tom was attentive and engaging, making sure all of our needs were met. Food was served quickly and everything was delicious. Looking forward to the cheesecake we brought home for later. Great experience!

I have found the Cheesecake Factory to be pretty consistent no matter where you go. Food is good and plentiful and not overpriced. Drink menu is pretty extensive. The same holds true of this restaurant. I found the wait time for service to be longer then in other Cheesecake restaurants, but it could have just been an off night. Good... More
