This chain is my favorite chain of restaurants. You can never go wrong when you eat here. The location is very convenient, located right inside The Oaks mall (which is a very beautiful, huge mall). When we go, we always ask to sit at a booth regardless of the wait time, that is the only bad thing about The Cheesecake... More

I've eaten here a few times and the food is consistently good. My friend and I split the Cuban sandwich and Bistro Shrimp. Both were amazingly good. I will order that the next time I go for sure. The service was great. It's located in the mall so parking is a bit of a pain. The only reason I give... More

The cheesecake is sinful,to die for. Only eat at your own risk of gaining many pounds! The staffs friendly and helpful. It is located in the Oaks Mall and it is close to everything.

This our place to go when we want to go out to dinner. Wait is long but they give you pager that lets you know when table is ready. Gives you a chance to run to see's or just walk around mall. Good is always good. A little loud inside, make sure to get a booth.

My wife and I come here quite often. We asked our kids to give us gift cards for here on many occasions, such as birthdays and Christmas. Quite a variety of dishes. We usually come here for either lunch or dinner - when we feel a bit lazy and don't want to cook, or simply to relax and enjoy ourselves.... More

This chain is pretty consistent wherever you go - good food and service is pretty consistent. Here's an odd thing - ginger ale costs for each glass but cola has unlimited free refills. Aren't they both soda? The difference was not made clear. You can connect to the mall's free wifi from the patio which is nice.

I think I'm stuck on wait times. It must be the lack of restaurants in our area. Usually, a 30 minute wait. Portions are large which means another's meal for the following day. I've never had a bad meal and for the most part service is good.

We had a very nice meal on the patio last evening with my wife's 92-year-old uncle. He and I had the meatloaf dinner and it was very good and the portions were gigantic. My wife had a turkey chili and enjoyed it very much. The service was outstanding,The setting was very nice plenty of heaters to ward off the chill... More

Other than stating the obvious, that the desert is great, I just can't like the food. I've tried enough but just gave up. No complaint about service , cleanliness, or location. But from the crowd of patrons I feel I may be in a small minority.
