“long wait-but very friendly staff”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had to wait for over 1 hour to be seated, the place was completely swampped, apparently it wasn't even a busy night. However the staff was very friendly and the food was good. I was really impressed how quickly and professionally they handled such a huge crowd

“Many choices available”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Believe it or not, I had never been to a Cheesecake Factory. The choices were endless. I had the cashew chicken, which was listed on the menu as spicy. I didn't think it was spicy, nor did it have many cashews, but it was tasty. We also had the Mexican Chicken, which was delicious. Was told that theFish & Chips and Huevos Racheros were good too. We got the nachos as an appetizer, very common. The chef had put brown rice with my meal, instead of the white rice that I ordered, and the manager bent over backwards to apologize. He offered me a free soup, salad or drink to apologize for the delay. Service was very good.

“Favorite spot”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Best chain around. We went twice while there on vacation. Only problem was a 30 minute wait. But the good is worth the wait. Steak Diane is a must.

“Too pricey for the quality of the food.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food and service is very average for how expensive this place is. I dont mind paying for good quality food. Was there once and was not impressed, have not been back and will probably not be back for lunch or dinner... dessert is great though - def reccomment the dulce de leche cheesecake. YUM!

“Good food moderately priced”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Cheesecake Factory is always a good bet, they have a large variety of food and of course, cheesecake. My wife and I shared their shrimp salad and it was great.
