Wednesday Favorite

Love their mushroom soup, served only on Wednesdays. It just doesn't disappoint, each time it taste the same and believe me, I come just for this soup. Great with their bread and salad on the side, so if you like mushroom, try it on Wednesday and you will be hooked.

They offer one of the best Happy Hour menus in town. The food is very tasty, the prices are very reasonable and most food items are enough for two. Additionally, most of the menu appetizer items are the same portion as on the regular menu. You just can't beat it!

Our large(9) group met at the Cheesecake Factory yesterday for dinner. The restaurant was busy as usual. After a short wait the hostess sat us inside near the bar. Our waitress was pleasant and efficient and took our orders in a timely manner. However, when the meals were delivered one person did not get served. We were told that this... More

My family comes here all the time because of the huge variety of items on the menu. My favorite chicken marsala - big enough to share with another person. Also the friendly service and smiles at this location keeps the bread basket filled and our water glasses too. The cheesecake of course is the best with a side of hot... More

Have dined at many cheesecake restaurants but this is one of my favourites. Food is delicious as always and the outdoor seating area is very nice with outdoor patio heating for chilly nights.

My boyfriend and I recently went there and we consider it a date night resturant. We love it there. Of course it takes us a while to review the menu, but have never made a choice we were disappointed in. We try to excape without a dessert but they are too irresistible. Always excellent service. Depending on when you get... More

Lots of choices from healthy to indulgent (amazing cheesecake) and excellent quality. Service is usually very good. There is often a wait but it's always nice to have the mall there to pass the time. Good for just about anyone and any get together.

Our family visits this location every year for my son's birthday. It's a tradition - I was eating CF Spicy Cashew Chicken when I went into labor with him! It's now 16 years later, and the Spicy Cashew Chicken is still as good as ever! The portion sizes are huge, so I've never actually made it to the dessert course.... More
