“Good Chain Option for Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We ate here (as we often do) at lunch prior to shopping. It is about an hour drive to this mall, so we consider this a special occasion and do not mind spending a bit more for this meal...but eating lunch helps since they have smaller/cheaper plate options at lunch service. If you have ever been to a CF, you can expect the usual. Servers are generally very efficient and helpful and some dishes are quite good. I would recommend the Thai lettuce roll ups and the chicken dishes. Of course, the cheesecake is the best! A bit expensive, but a tasty treat. We have tried several flavors, but if you like fruity, sweet, and light go for the mango key lime. Not as rich as many of the chocolate options or the ones that include a cake layer. If you choose to visit after lunch, be prepared for the usual wait to be seated.

“Pre Thanksgiving Trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Service was okay eventhough we arrived prior to rush hour of 6:30 p.m. Lighting is horrible we had to use our cell phones to see the menu, which is super long. It isbetter to have a smaller menu with better selections and better pricing. Plates are expensive and quality is not that great.

“Good restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I've been here many times and haven't had a bad experience yet. The problem with the Cheesecake Factory is that they have a large menu and it takes a while to decide. I've ordered the Navajo a couple times and it never disappoints.

“Nice Appetizers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

My son and I were pressed for time to get to a show. The wait was 20 minutes for a table so we opted to eat at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and took our order right away. We ordered guacamole and chicken samosas with our drinks. We were served quickly and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We were in and out in 40 minutes. The guacamole was god and the tortillas chips were warm. The chicken samosas were a little salty but edible served with a sour cream sauce. We enjoyed our small meal and made it to the show with plenty of time to spare.
