“Good Cheesecake Factory Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Very busy, the wait for service and food was longer than we like, but the food was very good. The staff was very knowledgable on food allergies which we so appreciate! Price was fine, for the four of us dinner was $80 with full entrees and drinks.

“Cheesecake to die for!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The atmosphere is typically quiet and up scale. They have a large menu and a good variety of entrees. Was disappointed with the shrimp scampi. Instead of the typical garlic butter sauce we are used to it was a creamy white sauce with different spices. The cheesecake on the other hand is to die for. Have only tried a few, but it is the best. I recommend the Godiva Chocolate cheesecake. It is made for chocolate lovers!!!

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Nice atmosphere, friendly, knowledgeable waitress, and all six of us loved our entrees and drinks! Especially a new drink called the Firefly, I think!
Restaurant was packed, but we didn't notice- good job with the design and music.

“Amazing Skinnylicious Menu!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

It seems no matter what city you are in the Cheesecake Factory will not disappoint - the staff is always friendly and the food is consistently good! The menu has something for everyone! Great place for lunch - offering smaller options of the dinner plates and a wonderful price.

The Skinnylicious Menu is AMAZING!!! It is all I ever oder from anymore - delicious, healthy options!

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

My memories of The Cheesecake factory are mostly from Chevy Chase, Omaha, and Kansas City. This location had the typical decor and usual menu. I thought the seared tuna looked good. It came out not seared at all, fishy tasting, and mushy, not firm. The endive, arugula, walnut, and blue cheese salad along with the bread was great as usual. The server did not charge for the fish, but for the wait time and expectation of better fare, this experience will not make me want to go to a Cheesecake Factory again.
