A consistently good place

For a chain, it is consistently good. The portion sizes are large so you will not walk away hungry. Most of the servers are attentive and nice. The desserts are great.

Always great food. Never disappointed! Large portions and big enough to share for some. Leave room for dessert!

Living here in town for many years, I've been going there with family since they opened. Everybody can always find something good on the menu to suit their desire that day. Outside patio, inside court tables, and of course good big booths in main restaurant. Always nice staff and because its good, it is popular and you can have wait... More

Obviously it's like every cheesecake factory ever but I do have to say it was a nice place. Really good service.

This restaurant is one of our favorites. The Happy Hour is amazing. They have a full menu of appetizers at reduced prices and drinks are much cheaper than normal. Grab a seat in the bar, order a couple appetizers and drinks and sit and enjoy it for a reasonable price. Meals are good, too. Service has been odd the past... More

We try to go early to take advantage of Happy Hour. They have great drinks and a grilled artichoke that is great. The drinks are much less at Happy Hour. It's a great thing to do before an early movie.

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.
