We stopped on our recent trip thru Albany, thank goodness for the skinnylicous menu or I would not have eaten. Everything is such large portions! Very good taco salad , with chicken ,tasty dressing. Deserts looked great but each was enough for 4. My husband loves the burgers and you can sub a salad for fries. Food is constant, quality good, huge portions, very high calories, look before you eat.

Had not been here in a while, primarily as it is ALWAYS crowded, and the relative lack of lower calorie choices. Met a friend, actually great to go back. They now have a separate healthier menu which is great. The service was friendly attentive and not intrusive. Minor point, but I love their iced tea, passion fruit I think. We each had a salad, his a Cobb, big with plenty of toppings. Me, a cold, filled salmon filet on a large salad. I always get the vinaigrette, but my guilty pleasure is their blue cheese dressing, among the best I have had. Never room for dessert.

Great place, great menu, great to meet people, great with kids. Never eat outside, you are sitting next to the busy parking lot.

I have always got great food at the Cheesecake Factory. Nice atmosphere and good service. With their big menu, everyone should be able to find what they like. The only problem, I always so full, no room for desert.

The chicken plates are great and the black bread they serve in the beginning is delicious. The waitresses, all white dressed, are kind.
