“Long wait but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Really enjoyed my dining experience here.

I had the mac and cheese burger and the luau salad. That is by far one of the best salads I've ever had.

“Can't go wrong!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

Cheesecake Factory is one of our faves, and we look forward to going here whenever we're in the States. We had the same great experience at the Waikiki one as we've had elsewhere. We've come to learn that we only need to share one appetiser and one main between the two of us - plus dessert of course! - and we are still full to the brim. The menu can be quite overwhelming as there's just so much to choose from, and everything we've tried is so yummy! You could probably close your eyes and point and whatever you get will be tasty and awesome : ) Love love love the brown bread they bring out too.

“so worth the wait”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

There are lines (queues) what ever time you go but it is so worth the wait. Great location, excellent decor and the service and food are fantastic. We love the cheesecake factory and wish the would come to Australia. Perhaps they need another one in Honolulu? The serves are massive and the food is great. Love the recommendations from serving staff. Even with the long waits once you are seated they don't rush you. And if you can't finish the meal or manage the dessert take it with you and they will pack it up for you. Don't miss it.

“Good Vibe, Good Service, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We decided to visit the restaurant before 5pm as it looked quite busy. There was about a 10 minute wait for a table outside but we went straight to an inside table. The waiters and waitresses are extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is quite comprehensive but beware the portions are large. We started with a sharing platter of nachos and really that should have been the main meal, it was massive. I couldn't even make a dent in my main meal although both were delicious.

The exterior of the building is very pretty and if you can wait I think it would be nicer to sit outside.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

To have such a large menu with so many options could be a risk but it is not here- every item on the menu is cooked to perfection! My husband and I have repeatedly have come back to this restaurant on our three holidays here - for lunches and dinners numerous times over our trips. Every time we have been delighted with the service received- the staff are always in such a great mood and aren't fake and pushy for tips. The food is spectacular and the wait time for food and drinks is very efficient considering the huge number of tables that are always filled. The prices are so reasonable especially considering how much food you get. Be prepared to feel very full at the end!
Only negative is it's not easy to get in (because everyone loves it!). You will have to get a buzzer and the wait time can be up to an hour and a half. Thankfully it always is quicker than what they say. We just go an hour before we actually want to eat, grab a buzzer and go for a shop while we wait.
We wish they would bring Cheesecake Factory to Australia!
