The Cheesecake Factory at The Spectrum is one of their larger restaurants and the food is up to their usual standards. It's a large and varied menu. As always, the parking at The Spectrum is a challenge but there is a valet close by to make it a little easier. Definitely worth a trip for the cheesecake alone.

The Cheesecake restaurant has a very large menu. Even for the light fare. I love there salads and everything I have there has always been good.

There aren't very many competitors to The Cheesecake Factory, in my opinion. First, they have great food. Second, they have GREAT Cheesecakes, all different kinds. It might take you 10 minutes to just decide which one. Prepare to pay for what they give you, as it's a bit "pricey."

I had no idea they have a appetizer special during happy hour. It's $5.95 until 6 pm during the weekdays. They also have a few other items for a little more too. My favorite dish at CC Factory is their Falafel salad. It's fantastic and a healthy choice when I try to stay on a lifestyle change.

the food is just so pedestrian, and the service so middle of the road. The bam bam hot and spicy chicken and shrimp was so bland, and tasted so processed, I really only ate like 3 bites. and the server was so slow.

Similar to other chess factors resturants provide good food and nice atmosphere that encourage you to visit again. Service was good and location is convenient after a long shopping in the area. Keep up the good work..

I went in and got on cheesecake to take back to my hotel. Per the norm the service was quick and friendly. The cheesecake was also VERY good.

I visited here in a party of 6 this evening, including a toddler. We sat outside which was lovely - booth seating with ample space for a high chair and patio heaters - apparently it was refurbished within the last year and now looks really smart. Food ordered in our party was tomato and basil pasta (good), spaghetti and meatballs... More

Food was good. I had the Chinese Chicken Salad and hubby had Cajun Jerk shrimp with rice and black beans. We had the Cheesecake to go. Best Cheesecake around. Some people just go for the Cheesecake! Service was good and prompt. Went on a busy Friday.Recommend the patio (weather permitting)

Thank Susan C
