“Still Good But Portions No Longer What They Were”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We go to the Cheesecake Factory in Naples and elsewhere when we want consistently prepared fast food. Each member of the family has favorites, and we order those repeatedly. Therefore, we can judge when things change. One regular choice, salads (dinner portion), were were so huge you could take half home. No more. Now it's an easy finish. An example - the Cobb Salad contained less avocado, cheese, bacon, chicken, and even lettuce! The hamburger was smaller, and there were fewer fries. Checked out the cheesecake slices on our way out, and these looked smaller, too. Less value for the $. The dining room was practically empty, so the sound of crashing plates in the kitchen was amplified. Not a bad visit, but no longer the Cheesecake factory experience.

“Easy, Good Eats!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

For a chain the food is first rate. The menu ranges from appetizers to hearty burgers, and includes very good pasta and chicken dishes. The portions are huge. The price is reasonable.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Finally got to go here for my 31st birthday. What a treat! The pasta I had was delicious and big portioned. The red velvet cheesecake is to die for! Best I ever had. Since only a 45 minute drive from my house, will be visiting again very soon!

“Cheesecake heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Situated in the carpark for the Coastland Mall meant we were never able to go shopping without dining at the Cheesecake Factory so our holiday in Naples has added two inches to my waist.
The place is fun from the mock Egyptian decor to the fantastic display of cheesecakes of every imaginable flavour. Portions are large , the menu is comprehensive and everything we tried was good and tasty. The guacamole was better than we had in any Mexican restaurant and although a starter was large enough for a meal on it's own. Prices are not cheap but taking into account the quality and size, I thought they were good value. No problem splitting meals which were big enough for two and that reduces the cost so it's no more expensive than eating elsewhere. We like sitting in a booth and there are plenty, just ask. Try not to get seated in the side room as it is usually half filled with a party and can get noisy.

“Busy.................”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Went on a Saturday night at peak period, perhaps not the best idea. Felt like we had just been processed, get them in, feed them and get them out. Our busy server seemed to be on auto pilot. Food is ok, portions are large, sharing is not frowned upon, cheesecakes very good as always. Just felt it was not a good dining experience, they CAN do better.
