“Always great”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

Going to Cheesecake Factory is always fun. I had the Cobb salad, which is delightful. After exploring the dessert menu, I settled on the crazy carrot cheesecake. A treat for those who love carrot cake.
The skinnylicious menu offers a wide variety of lower calorie items.

“chain restaurant, predictable food”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

I can't believe this chain got so big on the strength of mediocre to poor cheesecake covered in just about anything you can imagine. It's a popular chain that serves gigantic portions to a population that equates quantity to value. The Edina store, which I have been to exactly once, is a typical shopping mall chain with long waits, loud acoustics and predictable pre-prepared chain food.
The only way to evaluate cheesecake is plain, and they look at you like you are an alien from another planet if you don't want it with choco-caramel-hazelnut-strawberry-mocha topping. Don't bother, it's a factory frozen fluff cheesecake under all that stuff.

“Always good food, always busy”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The Edina Cheesecake Factory is so popular that one needs to eat at off hours like mid afternoon in order to have fast service and a reasonable noise level. The menu is so extensive that it is almost confusing. Portions are huge making it a good place to split an order if one is so inclined. There is an extensive menu of small portions, sharing plates and appetizers. In fact the menu is so many pages that ordering is a problem, knowing that everything will be good. May I suggest the lettuce wraps and orange chicken. My favorites. Cheesecakes portions are also sharing size.

“Tons of Excellent Choices”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

We had a hard time deciding on which items to order. Both couples decided to split dishes (2 people per meal) so we would have room for desert. We ordered the chicken and dumplings, which was very good. The other couple ordered Chicken Madeira, which was also very good (I tried a bite). We finished off the meal with Chocolate Raspberry Truffle cheesecake, which was very good but very rich. We were all glad we split meals and deserts.

Service was very good. The wait staff was fairly quick to seat us (especially considering it was 7pm at weeks end). We had a table within 15mins. The waiter was attentive and helpful.

I have been at another of their locations in the DC area, but the design of this location was very nicely done and looked very upscale.

We will definitely come back to try some other menu items.
