Atmosphere is very lively and casual. Food always good. Service is average. However, be prepared to wait for a table. I have been to several CF in different states and have had to wait for a table. If you don't mind eating outside or at the bar, your wait time is trimmed by 30-45 minutes depending on time of day.... More

The food is fantastic and they don't skimp!! Although I must say, the most difficult thing about going there is to choose the cheesecake you want, because all of them sound so good, you want them all!! The staff is great. The restaurant stays busy, but the wait isn't very long.

A lot of good options to eat and always delicious! But, there is always a waiting list, this time it was supposed to be 20 min but they called us after 5 ;)

My husband, mother, and I ate lunch here on a Tuesday. We arrived about 11:30 and were immediately seated, which was a shock! We shared 2 appetizers and 1 slice of cheesecake. The fried mac and cheese was delicious! None of us liked the crab cakes. We loved the dark chocolate cheesecake. Will get there early again so we don't... More

Hostess was rude. Food was mediocre except the cheesecake. We were reuniting with family we had not seen in over a decade for lunch and the waitress kept giving us dirty looks because we were taking too long. Would not go back.

The food is always delicious and beautifully presented. My husband and I always order the fish tacos and share an appetizer. The mixed drinks are also very good. I never have room for the famous cheesecake and have to take dessert home to enjoy later. If it is not raining, we elect to sit outside on the patio. It overlooks... More
