I eat a lot and it's always a pleasant experience with prompt and thoughtful service, consistently excellent food with more variety than imaginable and the atmosphere is beautiful.

Have eaten at a number of Cheesecake Factories over the years, and this is easily the worst one I've ever been to. We've eaten here at least 5 or 6 times in the last 2 years, and it has gone downhill in terms of both service and food quality. The last time we went for a later dinner (around 9... More

One thing that really annoys me about restaurants with a separate bar area, is when they allow children in that area. There is plenty of seating in this restaurant, yet there are children at the bar. I come with my friends for drinks after work. We're trying to decompress. The last thing I need are children. In the bar. I... More

The food here makes other Cheesecake factory's food look like tv dinner plates(Millenia mall, Orlando FL, I mean you). The Americana burger was out of this world. The fries are delicious. Great place to go on any occasion.

Ordered two of the combination offerings: steak & shrimp and steak and salmon. The former looked like the 3 shrimp had been thrown to the plate and starting to fall off - the latter, garnish looked a bit like asparagus spears so thin and tasteless. The menu did not state meals would be blackened or even highly seasoned. The meals... More

The fried chicken sliders and small house salad make a wonderful meal. My guess have the salmon entree and said it was top of the line. We shared the banana cream cheesecake, Yum.

Had lunch here with my sister and 2 teens and it was a good choice due to the large menu and everyone being able to find something they wanted to eat. I like the skinnylicious menu with small plate and lower calorie options. I got the chopped salad and it was heavy on the lettuce and light on the chicken... More

We like the Cheesecake Factory, but the prices have continually crept up and now the prices for comparable menu items elsewhere (say, at Chilis, Bertuccis, a good local Chinese restaurant etc.) are more affordable and the food is just as good at those places -- this is chain food folks, some items are good, some not so good, but rarely...

It was my birthday and I have chosen to spend it here because I love this place. Service, food and the birthday cake were great. Of course that the key here are the desserts. So good. One of my favourites franchises in the US. A little difficult to find the place tough, it is a little hidden for me.

This restaurant sits with the outer perameter of the Dulles Town Center Mall. Lots of parking within the mall lot, however it leaves much to be desired for finding parking for those who are handicapped. Theres just not enough assigned handicapped spaces. The mall goers take them up quickly. Those who are handicapped would need to be dropped off first.... More
