We went to Cheesecake Factory on a Thursday evening, shortly after 8:00, and got seated quickly. I guess we got lucky in that respect. If you don't like waiting, or have a movie to catch at the theaters next door, avoid the Cheesecake Factory during prime hours. Parking can be difficult during busy times, too.
The other advice I would give is to skip the first course, and just order an entree. Or, make the appetizers your meal. They serve huge portions of food! Almost anything you are in the mood for, Cheesecake Factory has it on the menu: salads, sandwiches, burgers, steak, seafood, pasta...and more. All of us ate about half of our meals and brought the rest home.
Then, of course, there is the huge variety of cheesecakes. There is something to please everybody. My personal favorites are the vanilla bean, banana cream, or key lime.
