The service ticks me off right away when the wait staff does not come by first thing to offer you a drink, so obviously when you finally do get to order a drink and it comes about 25 minutes after- I'm super ticked. I always say if there is one thing waitstaff should do it offer drinks and get them... More

A friend of mine wanted to go and eat at the Cheesecake Factory. I remembered they had a long menu, so I was guaranteed to find something that would suit my fancy. And I did! Their Bang Bang Chicken and Shrimp is really very good - - the sauce on this dish is to die for. Although it was crazy... More

A good manager would be walking the restaurant floor, making sure the place is clean. The area around the bar was filthy. The ladies bathroom was dirty, at least one toilet was broken, one stall had no toilet paper, etc... By far one of the worst things was the lack of proper air conditioning! I felt so sorry for the...

Something for everyone. Need time to make it through the large menu. Save room for cheesecake which you walk pass on way in. Table favorite macaroni balls for starters. Bread also very good. Lunch special pasta always lot of food. I like the spicy chipotle pasta

While one can usually trust Cheesecake Factory to be consistent in good and generous food servings, the salad selection is better than ever. Great healthy superfood options, "skinny" options, and light, tasty dressings. Top with seafood or other hefty option and a fabulously light yet satisfying treat will be had.

Yes they sell all kinds of cheesecake, I do not know how many kinds they make, as they have weekly specials, seasonal specials, and daily specials as well as their normal "Weight Watchers" and other diet plans forbidden cheesecakes. But open their many page menu, and a wonderland of great food awaits you! I wish I could tell you which... More

Whether west coast or east coast, The Cheesecake Factory delivers the same high standards in terms of food, no wonder we keep coming back to it. On this occasion we discovered it purely because it was facing our hotel near the Mall and the restaurant could be accessed from the massive car park. We thought it might be difficult to... More

Decided instead of waiting in line at popular breakfast hot spots to try brunch here. Complete disappointment! It seems they use a lot of oil and grease in the eggs and breakfast potatoes...not even crispy very soggy! Service was great though. I'll come back for dinner but not breakfast.

I was taken there for my birthday around 3ish and the place was almost empty which was awesome. Immediately seated. Our waitress was good but the staff was standing around in a group talking and pretty much wasting time. It was pretty distracting trying to have a nice meal. When its slow you would think a place that large could... More

We got there at 5:30 on a Saturday night thinking it we would be just ahead of the dinner rush. No such luck. We waited 40 minutes to be seated. The food was good. They have a great selection. And once we ordered the food came right out. After that the service fell off a bit. It took us a... More
