“Over-kill!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

We are not overly fond of chain restaurants. The food is ok. The cheesecake portions are insane, a heart attack in the making.

“Average at the Inner Harbor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

The Cheesecake Factory has been a solid chain for many years, but they are resting on their past successes, and the location at the Inner Harbor in Baltimore is a prime example of just that. Slow service, a mix up in order, a disgruntled server, and trouble just checking our check. The lunch portion were large but they came up short or taste. Overall is was just average, but their prices are a little above average, and this is a not a winning combination. The Cheescake Factory needs to work on their basics before they become another casualty in the Inner Harbor.

Great atmosphere ( Inner harbor) and great food. Can be expensive but you definitely will have some left over.
