Went there on 8-22 16 with 2 friends for dinner. 15 minute wait no prob. Was seated no prob. Waiter asked for our drink order and if we wanted any appetizers which we said yes. After giving the order we already knew what we wanted for the main dish so we also gave him that as well. Again no prob.... More

First time visiting and of course hearing everyone praising this restaurant. Server Zac was outstanding and food came out as ordered. Perhaps as ordered is not exactly correct. I ordered a Cheeseburger cooked medium and it came out on the low side of medium rare...It was still tasty but I can only imagine how great it would have been had... More

I attended NCCU and ate at The Cheesecake Factory every weekend. I love the Sunday soup. The staff are really friendly and service is great. Do expect a long wait time at night on the weekends.

We stopped at the Cheesecake Factory on our way home from Raleigh. We arrived and were surprised to find the place was half empty. We approached the hostess stand and told her a party of 3. We were then told we would have a 10 minute wait. I was confused by her reply, as it was quite obvious there was... More

Enjoyed the meal very much. The steamed edonome is a great starter. Stuff chicken tortillas is a great choice for entree. White chocolate macadamia nut cheesecake is amazing.

This is our first visit. Our local friends introduced us. The food was plentiful, as you can tell by the title, far too much really. But that might have been because we made room for cheesecake and some ice cream concoction that was enormous and delicious. Whatever you do - do not have a starter, save yourself for the deserts....

I just love this place. The food tastes wonderful! The service was fantastic! For our party of 10, the waiter kept our water glasses full without anyone ever asking for a refill. And that's the only beverage everyone drank. I had the eggplant parmigiana, which I was glad I split with someone else. It came on a platter. Well worth... More

The front of house staff here were rather officious, pushing customers around making them wait while tables sat empty, at those tables I ordered 2 starters and asked they come one after the other. They both arrived together. The waitress knew and was rather off hand and blamed the kitchen. Oh well the cold dish was sort of ok.... So... More

The ambiance at the Cheesecake Factory is fun and lively with interesting architecture and painted walls. The menu is extensive with something for everyone: seafood, pasta, beef, vegetarian. And, of course, the cheesecake options for dessert are numerous. The service was friendly and prompt even though the place was very busy.

Thank Jay N
