Took my wife on a date for a special night. We ate and enjoyed ourselves. Although we were in a mall, we out outside, had good service and didn't break the bank. For two with appetizer, iced tea, two entrees and one dessert only $61! Thanks Cheesecake Factory for allowing my wife and I to have an inexpensive date. Oh... More

You can't find better cheesecake anywhere, but that's not the whole story. I love the turkey burgers, but there isn't a bad item on the menu. The Cheesecake Factory has great food and appetizers, a menu that doesn't seem to have an ending, and sharp employees who can explain every item on it. Be prepared to wait for a table,... More

Excellent service and food was delicious. Staff very friendly and patient with little children in our party of 6. Would go there again there very happily. All the adults and children enjoyed the food and setting. Delicious salads!

I never got disappointed eating at The Cheesecake Factory, this was my 3rd time but not the same location. I ordered Chicken Madeira and Steak Diane, which was super delicious. The chicken was tasty and juicy, the beef was good but not as the chicken. For the dessert I ordered Snickers Bar Chunks and Cheesecake which was fabulous. The service... More

Happy hour is great. Drinks strong. Happy hour menu large & versatile . Nicely presented & adequate portions. Fried chicken sliders, fried zucchini are favorites. Only complaint is terribly noisy. Have to yell to have a conversation .

Been there a few times- happy hour, Dinner. Food it just mediocre, as can be expected of any chain restaurant. Ambience is okay and service is okay as well. Nothing special, except the expensive price as another review here mentioned. There are better places to explore in the area.

Even though this place is very predicable, the food, service, and atmosphere are always good. The skinnylicious salads are my favorite. The bread is good too. Although i do my best to stay away from it.

Why bother. There are many chain restaurants around but this has a unique extra- it's expensive. When you enter, you are greeted by a person, usually a teenager, who has no idea of hospitality. There is a wait and sometimes a pager, like calling fools. The food is all large potions of over salted and very handled stuff. Salads are... More

As always, the food is good at Cheesecake Factory. Their cheesecake is amazing! One of my favourite dishes is the Avacado egg rolls. Oh Yum!!! Since this has become a huge chain, the food is very consistent. Doesn’t matter where you go, it is always the same, and always good. Depending on the time you go there it can be... More
