This location is in the Columbia Mall which is always super busy. Unless you come at an off time (3pm on a week day etc.) there is always a huge line outside and typical cheesecake factory long waits. Service is great and food as usual is consistent and good.

portions are huge ...always ask for some warm bread makes a huge difference,,,, drinks expensive but worth it... waiters vary some better than others ...food sizes are massive share plates. So much to choose from takes a while to decide...expect to wait a while for a seat.

Wide selection of food and drinks means there's something for everyone. Staff was friendly and service was very good. Week-night visit while traveling on business and the place was packed so I'm assuming they're doing something right.

I was so looking forward to a refreshing salad but instead had rotting lettuce. My husband and I both had the Chinese salad and now we are both ill. I have been to many CF but now I feel they have definitely lost their footing. Too many customers to make the food even safe. A very sad day for the Cheesecake Factory in Columbia.

We are regulars and most of the time someone recognizes us (we always sit in the bar area) and they know our order. We love Erin the bartender, Allison, Elizabeth and a few other servers who treat us like family!

The strawberry & raspberry lemonade is the best around! The lemon drop martini is divine!! And the caesar salad dressing is one of our all-time favorites...there's one other restaurant that is tied for top honors.

The portions and the service keep us "regulars"!! :-)
