“Good food and service at bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We have stopped in several times while out shopping and we have been pleased. Very friendly service form the bartenders. We have tried several things on the menu and they have been good. We would not consider it an evening out but for a nice relaxing drink with good food worth stopping by while you are at the mall.

“Totally worth the drive!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went for my husband birthday. The drive was approx. 35 - 40 min. So worth the time! The wait staff was very friendly and suggested different items to try. Also, gave us suggestions for appetizers that came with four pieces, so all of us could have one of each. Great idea. Never felt pressured into a big ticket item, answered all questions and even offered to bring out a sample of a few sauces for one of the dishes. We never told the server about his birthday and really didn't talk about it but the server somehow picked it up and when the deserts were brought out his said Happy Birthday. What a wonderful surprise! The prices were pretty reasonable approx. $70 which included 20% tip. Yes, we went a bit overboard with all that we ordered and we left very full but it was worth it! Will go back again!

“Great Selection--Pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Many pages of options in the large menu. All meats, plus lots of specials. We had ahi tuna, cod, eggplant parmigiana, pasta, fried chicken salad......a wide variety, and everyone liked it. Good Mojitos! Service was also good...we had a party of eight and tip was automatic 18%.....I'd have given More! I do think it is a little pricey however given the menu, but it is the Mall.

“Place for good times”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

I really enjoy Cheesecake Factory restaurants but the service in Brandon in differentiated.
Good cocktails drinks besides the large choices in the menu.
In the end the dolce de Lethe cheesecake is just great.

“Typical Cheesecake Factory”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is your very typical Cheesecake Factory. The food was good, perhaps a bit overpriced. We were a party of 4 plus an order of Baja Tacos to go- no cocktails, no appetizers, 4 pieces of cheescake for $160.00 including tip. But when you walk into a Cheesecake Factory, you expect the consistancy in the food and in the prices and this one won't disappoint on either point. They did serve me mashed potatoes that we refrigerator cold, but reheated and returned them on my request. Our server was really pleasant and of course, the cheescake was delicious,.
