“Amazing dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

While visiting family in Alabama, my niece suggested we try The Cheesecake Factory as it was new to us. We had never heard of it before. What a blast! The staff we wonderful and informed us the portions were very generous! Fabulous seafood pasta, deep fried Mac and cheese balls served with terrific sauce. The variety of cheesecake....jaw dropping. Fortunately our group was staying with family so lots of leftovers to take home. It was an amazing dining experience. Looking forward to going there again.

Skip dinner! Have the cheesecake!!! My favorite is the Red Velvet Cheesecake but all are very good. Usually a long wait to be seated but you can always get a slice to go.

“Fabulous food, great service, wait :( ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

The wait was ridiculous. The worst part is they have the check in table in the middle of the restaurant. You have to fight your way through people waiting to even get your name on a list. No where to stand or sit as you wait and hour for a table.

We were finally seated. Our waiter was awesome. He stayed on top of everything and was very efficient. The Parmesan crusted chicken with pasta was wonderful. The fried cheese appetizer was also amazing. Very expensive for what we had.

I suggest coming in to the dessert counter and getting your cheesecake to go. It was good, but not worth an hour wait.

“Pleasant from start to finish.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Absolutely refreshing night out. We were able to order fast, get great quality food quickly with an even more delectable dessert all within our budgeted time. We ordered the Chipotle Chicken Pasta for dinner which was an excellent blend of spice and richness without the heavy weighted essence of a cream sauce. The bell peppers and asparagus were scarce and I wish the veggies were bigger ~ would really have brightened the dish up to a level calling me back next week vs. next month! The Red Velvet Cheesecake was delectable and definitely enough to split between two or more. Stephen our waiter was seriously poetry in motion! He just did not miss a beat! Him being so young really stood out because this type of professionalism is unfortunately rarely found in today's youth! Thank you Stephen for taking your job seriously and really delivering great service. Price of food is well worth it. Go hungry!
